Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year one thousand nine hundred and eighteen, by The George T. Bisel Co., in the office of the Librarian of Congress at Washington, D. Č.
The Borough Code of May 14, 1915, P. L. 312, codifies the laws of this commonwealth relating to boroughs and with certain ex. ceptions repeals all previously existing laws relating to their government. Its provisions have, however, in many instances, been altered by amendments and additions, and new statutes affecting matters outside of the code, have also been enacted by the laws of 1917. These amendments and additions have materially changed the provisions of the original code, and so many statutes still remain in force that a complete work on the existing laws governing boroughs has been deemed advisable in order that some clear understanding of the law may be arrived at.
In compiling this work the editors have thought it the better plan to divide it into four parts: First, The Borough Code of 1915 with the amendments thereto of 1917; Second, Acts Relating to Boroughs Not Affected by the Code including New Laws Affecting Boroughs; Third, The Constitutional Provisions Affecting Boroughs, and Fourth, Local Acts. To these have been added a complete table of statutes in effect with their amendments, a table of statutes wholly and partially repealed, and a list of forms has been appended.
Full cross references to the earlier laws as contained in 1 Purdon's Digest of Laws (13th Ed.), have been made for the purpose of ascertaining to what extent the code has changed their provisions. The whole work is fully annotated, the decisions under the code being brought down to date, and a full and complete index has been added.
