Sample Code Of Ordinances For Small Cities And Towns In Tennessee, Don W. Ownby

MTAS Publications: Full Publications

This Sample Code may be used as a working basis for drafting a complete code to meet the conditions and requirements of a particular city. Particular attention should be given to provisions that must conform to charter requirements; for example, the ordaining ...

Review Of Applied Urban Research 1973, Vol. 01, No. 04, Center For Public Affairs Research (Cpar) Nov 1973

Review Of Applied Urban Research 1973, Vol. 01, No. 04, Center For Public Affairs Research (Cpar)

Publications Archives, 1963-2000

This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "Neighborhood Mobilization in Black Omaha: Some Observations," by Kwame Poku Annor.

The decade of the sixties was a period of major economic, political, and social change in large central cities; yet few major institutional innovations were adopted to enable the cities to cope more effectively with the new conditions. The failure of central cities to solve their more pressing problems and rising expectations among the disadvantaged led to agitation for major reform in the institutions of municipal government.

Strategies For Change: Migrant Workers In Indiana, Louis Rosenberg Oct 1973

Strategies For Change: Migrant Workers In Indiana, Louis Rosenberg

IUSTITIA

There are enormous problems which beset migrant workers throughout America. In an effort to come to grips with conditions of the downtrodden in Indiana a symposium was held recently on the campus of Indiana University which dealt with possible mechanisms for changing the inhuman plight of the farm worker. Wages, housing, and working conditions are major areas which account for the debased and squalid situation of the worker.


How Citizens Can Use The Initiative Power, Robert L. Scott Oct 1973

How Citizens Can Use The Initiative Power, Robert L. Scott

IUSTITIA

The purpose of this discussion is to demonstrate how the initiative power may be employed by citizens wishing to pass a law independent of the state legislature. Although the initiative power is granted in many state constitutions, in the past it has been used sparingly. However during these days of political activism the initiative power has been given new vitality. For example, in the area of environmental law it has been employed by citizens groups in such states as California, Illinois, and Wisconsin to reserve greater individual rights against environmental polluters.


Exploitation Of Migrants By Crew Leaders: A Proposal For Change, Roberta Getman Oct 1973

Exploitation Of Migrants By Crew Leaders: A Proposal For Change, Roberta Getman

IUSTITIA

The agricultural industry, because of seasonal nature of crops, is unique in its use of labor. The required labor force fluctuates not only from year to year but from week to week, and day to day. Not as many laborers are required to weed and cultivate as are needed to plant and harvest. Inclement weather reduces the need for workers. The grower in Indiana needs an efficient means for ensuring a supply of labor for each season. Each spring between fifteen and twenty thousand Mexican- Americans come to Indiana to plant, cultivate, and harvest its crops. Traditionally, the work force ...


Protest: A Forensic Concept, L. Michael Kosanovich Oct 1973

Protest: A Forensic Concept, L. Michael Kosanovich

IUSTITIA

Today's police administrators need administrative policy statements that can be easily followed by individual officers in reacting to civil disorders.' Historical analysis reveals a system in which the police have deepened racial divisions in the United States by failing to cope with problems in ghetto areas. Employing careless policies, sometimes initiated by the police chief and other times initiated by the individual officer, the police have shown weaknesses in two major areas. First, the police have no established procedures to follow when civil disturbances erupt. Second, the police have over-reacted to civil disturbances, apparently manifesting anti-black fury by means ...

Reallocation Of Responsibilities And/Or Financing For Selected Municipal Services To The State: A Municipal Finance Alternative, Joseph S. Slavet, Katharine L. Bradbury, Philip I. Moss, Boston Urban Observatory, University Of Massachusetts Boston Oct 1973

Reallocation Of Responsibilities And/Or Financing For Selected Municipal Services To The State: A Municipal Finance Alternative, Joseph S. Slavet, Katharine L. Bradbury, Philip I. Moss, Boston Urban Observatory, University Of Massachusetts Boston

Boston Urban Observatory Publications

This report recommends that the administration and/or financing of a selected group of public services be shifted from municipalities to the state government in Massachusetts.

Several criteria are used to identify local functions and local fiscal responsibilities which are more suitable for state than local financing. The first criterion is the efficiency of delivery of the service: for some functions, such as solid waste disposal, technology makes it more costly per capita to provide the service separately through individual municipalities than to operate regionally-based waste disposal facilities. The second criterion is the degree to which residents of the service ...


Social Welfare Texts: A Study In The Sociology Of Knowledge, Leslie Leighninger Oct 1973

Social Welfare Texts: A Study In The Sociology Of Knowledge, Leslie Leighninger

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

Excerpt from the full-text article:

Do existing social work texts contribute to a student's recognition of professional values and issues and of the implicit ideological bases for these? The following study contends that they do not, and that their failures are quite similar to those found by Mills in his examination social pathology texts.

The books examined here are all designed to be used in basic undergraduate and graduate courses on the structure and function of social welfare institutions. The survey includes both widely adopted books and recent texts in the field. The books chosen for this study appear ...


Social Work, Social Welfare, And The American Family, Ronald A. Feldman Oct 1973

Social Work, Social Welfare, And The American Family, Ronald A. Feldman

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

The following discussion proceeds from two basic premises: (1) that the family constitutes one of the most basic units of social structure in contemporary American society, and (2) that the social work profession represents a major, if not the primary, institutional mechanism for coping with the myriad of social problems encountered by American families. The former premise is readily substantiated in view of the observation that the vast majority (over 9O%) of American men and women are married at least once in their lifetimes. However, since family units oftentimes experience severe difficulty in performing key functions and, indeed, in maintaining ...


Maternity Homes: The Case Of A Dying Institution., Samuel O. Miller Oct 1973

Maternity Homes: The Case Of A Dying Institution., Samuel O. Miller

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

Excerpt from the full-text article:

The checkered career of a major social welfare institution appears to be near its end. Maternity homes as the major service to unmarried mothers face an uncertain future, with few indicators of a reversal in this current trend. The provision of social services as an expression of society's conern for the problems of unwed mothers has invariably been accompanied by a dynamic combination of deep feelings of prejudice and ambivalence. However, the current uncertainty of their status; the confusion in attitudes and conflicting opinions about the value and purpose of homes for unmarried mothers ...


Factors Leading To Client Degradation In Welfare And Public Housing, Elizabeth D. Huttman Oct 1973

Factors Leading To Client Degradation In Welfare And Public Housing, Elizabeth D. Huttman

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

Excerpt from the full-text article:

Degradation and humiliation are the consequences of using many social services In our society. Added to this is classification as a non-normal or a failure because one turns to a government source for help. The person is stigmatized for use and the agency is negatively labeled by both non-users and users.

While these public opinions stem partly from a long-held philosophy regarding the role of social services and the nature of the poor, these attitudes are reinforced and strengthened by specific policies and practices in the administration and structuring of the programs. Comparisons between services ...


Reported Ill-Health And Life Cycle Among Welfare Mothers, Robert Lejeune Oct 1973

Reported Ill-Health And Life Cycle Among Welfare Mothers, Robert Lejeune

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

Excerpt from the full-text article:

A person's presentation of self, as Goffman uses that depends phrase, in part on the expectations of others, and also, no doubt, on the power which these others have over the person. Thus it happens very frequently that persons, particularly of low status or stigmatized positions, are called upon, as a conscious or unconscious technique of survival, to present to others negative featureS of the self; to resort to what Goffman has called "negative idealization." (Coffman 1959; 39-41; 1963). These considerations have direct bearing on the role of welfare recipients in American society. Welfare ...


Creating Accountable Public Bureaucracies, James R. Hudson Oct 1973

Creating Accountable Public Bureaucracies, James R. Hudson

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

Excerpt from the full-text article:

During the past several decades there has been a persistent and constant trend in our society that has not gained the prominence it deserves. This trend has been the continuous growth in the autonomy and power of public bureaucracies. The community power literature, for example, has systematically ignored public bureaucracies in its search for the power structure of cities (Aiken and Mott, 1970). The reasons why public bureaucracies have been overlooked by these researchers stem from a number of theoretical and methodological shortcomings that need not concern us here. The point, however, is that we ...
