Senate. Comm. on the Judiciary. Act limiting powers of county commissioners, 1834
Senate No. 58 On March 3, 1834, the Committee on the Judiciary was to consider providing checks on the acts of County Commissioners, to provide for
the auditing of their accounts, and to allow the Selectmen of Nantucket to function as Commissioners for Nantucket County. On March 13, 1834, the
Committee reported a bill: An Act limiting the powers of County Commissioners and providing for the settlement of their accounts, 1834. If the County
Commissioners agreed to a new road, the decision could be challenged at the next regular meeting and a jury called. If the jury felt the road was not
necessary, then it would not be built. The County Treasurer was to audit the Commissioners' accounts before they received any pay for service and the
records were to be maintained by the Treasurer. [Nantucket was not mentioned.] (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the
Massachusetts State Library).
Title:   Ordered, that the Committee on the Judiciary be instructed to report a bill providing for a more effectual check by jury upon the acts of the County Commissioners, and providing for the appointment of some suitable persons as auditors of their accounts, and also allowing the Selectmen of the town of Nantucket to exercise the duties of County Commissioners.
