Co SIM itter Meeting.?The finance com?
mittee and the committee on streets of the
t'ouncil heid a joint meeting last night
. relation to the manner of procedure in
.. jllection of bills for the streut paving
done 'ast fall. The collectors were directed
to immediately present the bills to the
owners of tbe property along the streets
paved, aud in case payment is refused, to
return the bills to the finance committee,
who instructed City Attorney Brent to en
ler equity suits ut once for tbe collection of
ihesame. As the bills in each individual
case are small (the property owners only
paying one-third of the cost of paving the
street- , and as the value of the property
along the streets paved has h.-en enhanced,
the committee thought the collectors would
find no difiiculty iu collecting the same.
But as i'~ is certain that all street improve?
ments in the city will cease if the property
owners living along such streets refuse to
pay their portion of tno expense, the finance
committee have determined to test the mat
tfr in order to tint! out bow, atnl at whose
expense tbe streets aro hereafter to he
paved ami improved. The committees
were of the opinion that the property ov. n
t-i- would have to pay the bi:!s.
Mr.Chas. E Moody was before the finance
committee in relation t<> th"> taxes on the
property oi the Iron \V??i k~. II? was re
- mI to present to the commit ee us soon
a- possible such offsets as he iu*y have to
the tax bill recently presented him, in order
that a settlement may bo effected between
hi-* company nnd the city.
