METERS
AGAIN
Special Committee Reports on Al
leged Over Charges of Water
Co. Matter will Probably be
Contested.
The regular meeting of the city
council was held last Monday eve
ning, every alderman being [ires
ent.
SPECIAL COMMITTEE REPORTS
The matter of the alleged over
charge for water meters by the
Water Co. was brot up for dis
cussion, as well as the charging
of the minimum rate to parties in
the same building using the same
meter. Aid. Lester stated that he
knew for a positive fact, and
would be prepared to substantiate
it that the company received a re
bate of one meter with each ten
meters purchased. The specia
committee who had the matter of
investigation of these charges in
hand reported that the Water Co.
has been overcharging about 92.42
on every meter installed in the
city, and they considered the com
pany ought to be notified to make
good this error. Aid. Lester, the
chairman of the committee, stated
that the overcharge nbove named
was caused by the rebate mention
ed. In regard to the matter of
charging various occupants in the
same building the minimum rate
for use of the same meter, it was
thot by the council that this should
be contested and an action allowed
to be brot, so that the legal status
of the matter might ba settled.
It is expected that some definite
action will be taken on both points
covered by the report of the in
vestigating committee before the
next meeting of the council.
NEW street signs
This matter was again brot up
and the streets and alleys commit
tee was instructed to complete the
Work, which was commenced just
before the 'present administration
took hold, but which has been in
abeyance since that time. It was
felt that some definite action ought
to be taken immediately.
LESTER NEEDS REST
Aid. Lester asked for a little
vacation from active duty as head
of the streets and alleys commit
tee, as he had private business of
his own to attend to which would
take him out of the city for some
little time, which request was
granted. Aid. Lester has worked
long and faithfully on his post at
the head of this committee, and
has done excellent service. Aid.
Pritchard will take his place until
such time as he will be able to re
sume it again.
CITY BUY LOTS
Aid. Pritchard suggested that it
would be a good idea for the city
to buy the lots east of the city hall
so that when the business quarter
of the city extends,it will give"the
municipal building ample breath
ing room, and allow for extension
when such becomes necessary. The
suggestion met with favorable
comment, but nothing definite was
done.
SMELLS BAD
Aid. Hawley mentioned the fact
that the Maple st.n. sewer had be*
come clogged and the result was
an offensive smell in that vicini
ty. The sewer committee was in
structed to look up' the matter and
take immediate steps to remedy
the same,
