proposeu city ball building is as fol
CF.NTLF.MEN OF THE ClTT COCKCIL:
It has Wn the boon of the different
councils and of the many property
holders and tax-payers of the citv of
Hock Island to have a city hall and a
uMMi- hi inrir own.
I'ublie pride and public interest
have demanded such for a lonrrtimn
but not within the memory of most
of us has the city ever been in a posi
tion to accomplish this desired im
Necessity and convenience re
quire, and experience has taught us
that the officers in discharge of the
duties of a citv should be
in the same huilding or in easy ac
a.a,r"r lu sufJ ailUiniT
To have the olViccs of Oia
city clerk, city attorney, city collec
tor of taxes, chief of police and po
lice station, superintendent of
streets, chief of the fire department,
superintendent of waterworks, citv
engineer, health commissioner, pub
lic library, board of education, po-
nv-u !-ifu an- anu conn room, in
me same building will commend it
self to all.
To erect a building that would fill
the requirements f onr city, but In
creasing the taxation upon "our prop
erty holders, would be out of the
question, but I would suggest a plan
to your honorable lody. which after
careful investigation, " I trust, and
nave every reason to believe can lc
carried to a successful completion.
A plan which is now generally adop
ted by people in all conditions of life.
wno are desirous of aqninng a home
of their own, without bavin? availa
ble means to procure the same on the
casn basis. I mean, what is or may
be called a leasehold in install
My efforts in formulating such a
plan and obtaining the co-opcrataion
of public spirited men of means, have
at last ieen successful and the form
ation of a company or corporation
consisting of such persons w ho are
willing to furnish the capital to erect
a building which will fill all the re
quirements of onr city government
uas now reached the stage of possi
bility, aye certainity.
The plan is as follows:
A company may be formed whose
object it shall be to erect a city hall
under the supervision and dictation
of the city council and in conformity
with plans and spccilications adopted
and furnished by the city council.
ucn plans may include offices, and
even balls which may be leased or
rented and from which the citv miirht
obtain a revenue to be applied on the
payment of rent or interest on the
Alter tbe completion of the build
ing, me city unuer its contract
with such company, accepts and uses
the same as its own house, paying
lciral interest or rent on a basts to le
determined Itetween the city and
such company, not exceeding the
legal interest on the amount invested
and so much of the principal as the
city may determine on from year to
year in the appropriation ordinance.
Enough of tbe anticipated revenue
in saloon licenses mar be appropri
ated for such purposes, which, if
done, will insure to the city a build
ing and hall without the cost of one
dollar to the tax-pavers.
(ientlemen, if this enterprise be
consistent with your views, I would
ask that you appoint a committee of
live of your number to act in con
junction with the mayor and report
at a future meeting of the council.
T. J Medill. Jic, Mayor.
