Editor's note:  The Charter of the City of Hollywood was ordained by § 1 of Ord. O-84-14, adopted Feb. 3, 1984, approved at an election held Mar. 13, 1984, and effective Oct. 1, 1984.  Except for minor stylistic changes made for purposes of consistency, the text has been set out as enacted, with any editorial emendations included in brackets ([/]).  Where necessary, the word “ordinance” or “act” has been changed to “article” or “charter” as appropriate.  Obviously misspelled words have been corrected without comment.  With the exception of certain sections of articles II and III (see the editor's note to article III), the numbering system of the ordinance has been retained.
