ORDINANCE IS AMENDED
COUNCIL CO.NSIUKHS IT I COMMIT
TEE OF Tili: W1IUL12.
The Property Owner Will Hnve IliKlit
( Appeal o the llonrd of
UorkK-nt Attn Irs.
The City Council resolved Itself Into a
committee of the whole last night, und
after two hours of hard woik succeeded
in amending the plumbing ordinance in
such manner that it is almost certain it
will be passed at the next regular meeting
of the Council.
The chief amendment allows the property
owner the right of appeal from the deci
sion of the plumbing inspector to the
Board of Works, whose decision shall he
final. The amendment was introduced by
Councilman BilllnKsIey, and its adoption
was supported by every Republican coun
cilman present. The new section reads as
follows: "Any property owner or person
affected by any act,, order or regulation
of the plumbing inspector, done, issued or
made pursuant to any of the provisions
or powers conferred by this ordinance shall
have the right to appeal therefrom to the
Board of Public Works of the City of In
dianapolis by filing with such board a
written statement of the matters and fact.
involved in such appeal. And the said
Board of Public Works shall immediately
set a time for the hearing of such appeal.
After such hearing the said Hoard of Pub
lic Works shall record and Issue such or
der relating to the matter involved in such
appeal as such board shall deem right and
Just in the premises; and said order shall
be tlnal and conclusive on all persons."
The above section was entitled "Sec
tion -13." and the numbers of the fol
loving sections were changed accordingly.
Op. motion of Councilman Perrott the
bond which the inspector shall be required
to execute was raised from Jl.ooo to $.",().
A motion by the same councilman to raise
the salary of the inspector from $l..ryx) to
'S-.r00 was lost. Mr. Perrott, In making
the latter motion, said he was apprehensive
of the city's inability to iind a marder
plumber who would be willing: to accept
the position at a salary of J1.5o.
A motion offered by Councilman Wheeler
requiring the plumbing inspector to de
vote his entire time to the position, and
prohibiting him from having any interest
in any plumbing business was carried unan
imously. The time allowed the inspector
to examine an approve or reject any
plumbing work after he has been notified
that such work is ready for a test was
shortened, on motion of Mr. Perrott, from
sixteen hours to eight hours. Section 1.1
of the ordinance waa amended by reducing
the fee for issuing permits for plumbing
or house draining from $1 to 25 cents for
the first $lMO and from 5o cents to 'S cents
for each additional PK. The last section
of the ordinance was amended so that In
event of Its passage it will not take effect
until Jan. 1, Uxrj.
After the committee of the whole had
arisen, an attempt was made on the part
of several councumen to have the re
port of the committee adopted at once,
but after a brief discussion it was decided
to Instruct the clerk to have copies of the
ordinance as amended printed and sent to
each member of the Council, and to make
a formal report on the matter at the meet
ing of the Council next Monday nisht. The
amendment providing for an appeal from
th eleclsion of the inspector was agreed
upon by the Republican members of the
Council in a caucus held Just prior to
the meeting of the committee of the whole,
and this, together with the fact that al
most every amendment made or voted
down was by a strictly party vote, almost
Insures the passage of the ordinance in its
Henry Wnrrnni'ii Petition.
Henry Warrum and May War rum yester
day filed a petition with the Board of
Works, asking that the Indianapolis (Jas
Company be compelled to extend its nat
ural gas main further south in the alky
