It is the policy of our government, federal and state, to at all times enlarge the powers of the people in matters of local self-government, rather than restrict them. Sec. 2 of Art. I of the Constitution of the state of Ohio makes this policy manifest in the following words: “All political power is inherent in the people, Government is instituted for their equal protection and benefit, and they have a right to alter, reform or abolish the same,whenever they deem it necessary.”
The state has seen fit, through Constitutional and legislative enactment, to give the people of municipal corporations who see fit to take the advantage of such provisions the greatest possible quantum of power of self-government.
