Description and Holding Information
House. Special Comm. on County Commissioners. Act concerning county commissioners, 1834
House No. 9 On January 15, 1834, a Special Committee of fourteen men created to evaluate a bill on county commissioners, plus some petitions,
presented a bill: An Act concerning county commissioners, 1834. Three people would be elected for three year terms. The votes in the various town
meeting would be counted and recorded, then passed to the clerk of the County Court, the Judge of Probate, and the County Treasurer. The three with
majorities got the job. If there were no majorities, the vote was done again, so it could take a while. Each county also elected two extra Commissioners to
fill in for sick or traveling Commissioners. If there was a petition for a road, the Commissioners could lay it out right away or wait awhile. If
building the road was too costly for a jurisdiction, the Commissioners could free up county funds to help pay for the road. An aggrieved party could
ask for a jury trial whose verdict was binding. The selectmen of Nantucket were also the County Commissioners. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of
title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
Title:   The special committee, to whom was referred the bill concerning county commissioners, and the several petitions of James Collins and al. and H. Lathrop, have attended to that subject, and directed me to report a bill.
