the chair and the following members
Messrs. Adams. Bierwirth, Blomey
er, Dempsey,Galusha, Shivelbine, Vo
gelsang. Absent. Mr. Lind.
The following communication was
presented by tho Mayor and read by
the Clerk, as follows:
To the President pro-tern and mem
bers of the City Council:
Gentleman: Tho Clerk having pre
sented to me for my signature the
warrants ordered issued by your hon
orable body at meeting of March 2nd,
to pay claims presented and allowed
at said meeting. I take tho opportu-
nity to inform you that I have signed
the warrants giving tile amounts due
as per report by the Street Commis
sioner and for graveling Frederick
The total amount of the warrants
signed by me.aboui covers the amount
reported in the Auditor's report read
at said meeting, to the credit of the
general revenue fnnd. Tho remaining
warrants for amounts due in the va
rious officers' reports, and bills al
lowed at said meeting, amounts to
$578.55, which under the law I could
not sign as there was not a sufficient
amount in the treasury to the credit
of said fund to pay same.
Among the warrants unsigned, is
one in favor of John Gricb, city
Marshal, in payment of a bill for $100
presented by him, and allowed by
your honorable body at said meeting
of March 2nd. I call your attention
to this bill simply from a sense of
duty and nothing else.
I have -nferred said claim to the
City Attorney for his opinion, and
submit this reply herewith attached, j
I bring this matter before you, to j
givo your honorable body an oppor
tunity to reconsider said claim. should j
you see fit to do so.
Wilijam H. coekvkk.
The opinion of the City Attorney,
attached to the Mayor's communi
cation is as follows.
Hon. W. H. Coervkk,
Mayorof thecity of CapeGirardeau.
Sir In answer to your request for j
my legal opinion on the itemized bill i
amounting to one hundred dollars pre- j
sontcd by Marshal Grid at the last j
Council meeting. I beg to say thatj
there is no provision in the City Or-1
dinances for the allow anre or piy-
ment of said bill or any pari thereof, j
The first item thereof amounting to j
fifty dollars is for services purporting j
to have been rendered under the stock i
ordinance, but Section .1 of said Or-!
dinance. No. 480 (see Itoviseil Ordi-j
nances page 298) provides what fe-s ;
the Marshal shall receive for s-erviee.- '
under sai'i Ordinance and makes no j
provision for the payment, of this !
chargo of 5o.iH.
Section i:t! of Revised Ordinances;
page 2.'5 6s- -he salary and fees thatj
the Marshal is entitled to receive in j
full compe:s:ilio! for his services ami
he is not legally entitled to any com
pensation lx yonil that fixed by that
section, exivji; ..here, as under said
Ordinance 4S! additional fees have
been specijliy provided for. and where
on by any ordinance a duly is impos
ed upon th.- Marshal, without any fee
lxjinir sp ci.illy fixed therefor, such
duty must lie jierformed by him as a
part of the services for which under
Section 4:Ut, In- receives an annual
salary of $.'!lH). Neither Section 433
nor any other Section of the City Or
dinance provides for the payment of
the second and third charges of $25.X)
each as contained in said bill, nor are
the services therein charged 'for such
services as Sheriff's can ivceive fees
for under the State laws, as mentioned
in said Section 433.
A payment of said bill would in ef
fect be only adding $100 to the Mar
shal's salary as now fixed by the or
dinances and would, in my opinion,
be in violation of Section 2i( of laws
governing cities of the third class (see
Revised Ordinances page 19 J which
Section says, "the salary of an officer
shall not be changed during the time
for which he was elected or appointed.
Very respectfully yours.
B. F. Davis. City Attorney.
