Goszler v. Corporation of Georgetown

19 U.S. (6 Wheat.) 593


The power given to the Corporation of Georgetown by the Act of Maryland of November 1797, c. 56, to graduate the streets of that city is a continuing power, and the corporation may from time to time alter the graduation so made.

The ordinance of May, 1799, by which the Corporation of Georgetown first exercised the power of graduating the streets, is not in the nature of a compact, and may be altered by the corporation.
