City Administrator Describes New Job


Nearly a year ago Ann Arbor
changed its charter to provide for,
a city administrator.
On April 9, 1956, the new char-
ter took effect and Guy C. Larcom
moved into a city hall office to be-
come the city's first administra-
(The city administrator system
allows a local government to run
like a business. The city council'
becomes a board of directors and
the mayor a president.)
City council establishes all poli-
cy under this system, and the poli-
cy is carried out by administra-
tive departments under the ad-
ministrator's jurisdiction.
Fulfills qualifications
Qualifications of the adminis-
trator require a background in
business management and munici-
pal government operation.
A glance at Larcom's previous
experience shows he fulfills both.
After graduating from Harvard
in 1933, Larcom began writing
editorials on government affairs
for a Hartford, Connecticut news-
paper While writing about gov-
ernment, he became "more inter-
ested in doing something about it
instead of writing about it."
He left the newspaper field and
later gained experience in gov-
ernment work.
He was a state government con-
sultant in New Jersey and spent
two years as an executive vice-
president in charge of business
management for an architectural
firm in Cleveland, Ohio.
Heads Research Agency
Larcom was head of a govern-
mental research agency concerned
with city government problems in
Cleveland and for five years was
president of a suburban city coun-

He was also general manager of
the Willow Run War Housing
Community. He worked in military
government in the Central Pacif-
ic during World War IL
When Larcom assumed his new
post, he set up administrative com-
mittees to work with him on oa.
ganizational problems.
Previous to the charter change,
city department heads worked in-

government is an interesting busi-
ness because there is always some-
thing different happening."
Larcom explained that "city
government is closest to the peo-
ple. They can see the job we do
and we are directly responsible to
He feels the city administrator
system is the "mont efficient type
of government" for a community
of Ann Arbor's size. "It is the big-
gest trend in local government
"Citizens should be able to take
pride in their government and
should consider it their agency
which provides them services they
cannot get in any other way," he
