Excerpt from Report on Government Ownership of Public Utility Service Undertakings
During the latter part of 1915 a Special Committee on Municipal Ownership was appointed by Francis B. Kellogg, President of the City Club of Los Angeles, with Charles K. Mohler, Consulting Engineer, Chairman.
The first result of the Committee's work was embodied in a report (based on 1915 data then available) presented during the fall of 1916, and given to the press. This part of the report is still left mainly on the 1915 basis.
A supplemental report was subsequently prepared, a brief synopsis of which was presented to the Club at its regular meeting on Saturday, June 3oth, 1917, by the Committee Chairman.
Both reports have been almost wholly the work of Mr. Mohler.
These reports contain a vast amount of detail information which should be made available to those interested in public service finances and municipal ownership questions. It is believed that much of the data in the supplemental report and the method of presentation are original and unique.
