SEWER WORK PLANNED
BEFORE GOING FURTHER
COUNCIL WILL LOOK IN
TO THAT ORDERED
Will be Looked Into in Addition
Before Any New Work b Un
dertaken in This Line.
In connection with tlie disposal of
the North Main strcct'sower line mat
ter by city council in special session
yesterday afternoon, the question of
completing before that work ia under
taken a batch of sewer work which
was authorized some timo ago arose,
and for a considerable white there waa
a groat deal of dlacutsicn of the mat
No alderman was opposed to the
laying,of thc sewer lino on North
Main street, where thc paving is to bo
put down, but there were several of
the members who wanted sewer work
which1 is either under way in their
respective wards already or scheduled
to begaln in the near future com
pleted before the North Mein street
work is started.
Alderman Spearman1 contended that
sewer work which is under way now
in the southeastern section of the
city should be carred to completion
while the city's forces are there. Al
derman Tate contended that sewer
Un? which have been authorized for
portions of West Market street, Brown
street, Mon roo street and Maxwell
avenue shou'..* bo put down' before any
new work is taken up. Alderman
Carter rased the contention in regard
to sewer work which had been au
thorized for Tribble street.
After wrestling over the question
for a large part of the afternoon, with
out reaching shy satisfactory^ con
clusion, it was suggested that mem
bers of council take an afternoon off
next Tuesday and make an Inspection
of those streets along which sewer
lines have been authorized, then take
a look into the city's financial affairs,
and If necessary, readjust the sewer
work already outlined so that the city
will not be run into debt. The sug
gestion met with the approval of all
members of council, KO .thc inspection
trip will be made -xt Tuesday after
noon. In the meantime the mayor
and city clerk and treasurer will pre
paro, a statement of the city's finan
ces for consideration.
