H.B. 2566 repeals statutes dealing with city elections in cities of the first class, qualifications for mayors in commission forms of city government, creation of precincts, and the appointment of city commissioners as department heads.
The bill was recommended by the 1997 Special Committee on Governmental Organization. The Committee studied the issue of the cleanup of local government statutes by repealing obsolete statutes which are no longer needed or made obsolete by the granting of home rule powers to cities and counties.
