A meeting of the joint committee
of the general council appointed to <
consider the matter of securing filter
ed water for Paducah was held at the
city hall last night and Superinten
dent Mnicoo Burnett of the water
company was present Tile commit
toe had held several meetings provi
onsly but never agreed on a report to
submit to the two boards
Last night however the following
was unanimously adopted by the
committee and will be presented at
the next meetings of the boards for
action
Paducah Ky Oct 7 100J
To the Hon Mayor and Members ot
the General Council
Weyonr joint light and water com
mittee to whom Will referred the I
question of negotiating with the laI I
ducal Water company as regards the
installing of a filtration plant beg to
repert that the water company is will
ing to build such a filtration plant
provided the city will repeal the put
chasing clause In the present water
works ordinance and farther agree to
make concessions as to the rental ot
fire plugshowover the price that they
agree to fix fit I not satisfactory to your
committee and we therefore recom
mend that if the water company will
build and have In operation a flltra
tlon plant not later than January 1
1901 of sufficient capacity to filter all
the water consumed in the city and
continue to furnish free to the city
water as per their present contract
and make the rental on all flrn plugs
from and after January 1 1V04 125
eaoh per year That in that event we
recommend that tho ordinance com
mittee be Instructed to prepare the
necessary ordinance repealing tho pur
chasing clause In the present water
works ordinance
By doing this the city will save for
the balance of the term that Ibo ordi
nance grants f 53800
We make this recommendation Jn
order to secaro filtered water and save
to the city 153800 Feeling satisfied
that If at any time the city desires to
own Its own water works it will build
Instead of purchasing as per their prlv
lego under the present ordinance
The ordinance above mentioned
shall embody In It that this question
of appeal of purchase clause shall bo i
submitted to a vote of the people at
the election In November next All
of which is respectfully submitted

not to be so great
Daring the past few days however
the patrons who have been coming In
and paying water rent have almost In
variably inquired about the filtration

very anxious to have filtered water

A member of the committee stated
this morning that the view they all
ookof It was that the cityi option
on tho water plant had never done any
good and never would and the city
baa nothing to lose and everything to
gain by accepting the above terms as
II is the only known way to get filter
