named to tuke that matter up with
the Public Service Company in a
• further effort to get satisfactory
The board also directed the clerk |
to notify 'he Perth Amboy Water F

in* their remains on unper Smith

A It i meeting with the council
' of South River was arranged for
next Monday night at which time the
i flooding of Jackson street will he
' discussed and efforts made to rem

I of a small stream.
1 Within the next two weeks the
Hastings Paving Block Company ex
BXpect to complete the replacement of
H|H&>halt blocks at Main street and
^B^bhway avenue. Woodt. ridge, ac
cording to a communication hefore
W the board. The hold up in the work
was explained as being caused by a
shortage of blocks on hand at the '
time the matter was first complain- ;
ed of.
Mrs J. Palmer-Quinby, superin
tendent of the tuberculosis preven
torium for children at Farmingdale.
in a letter to the board requested
that the freeholders take advan- ;
tage of the opportunities afforded
t children at that Institution, though
Freeholder Bclloff asserted that as
far as the board know there were |
no cases of this kind in the county. 5
Mr. Belloff informed the board
that requests for admission to the
various institutions were made
through the county anti-tuberculosis g
to which organization the b
communication will be sent.
The writer also called to the free- |
holder's attention an opinion ren- £
dcred by the attorney general to ,■
the effect that the county could be g
reimbursed by the state for any ex- F
i penses incurred at Farmingdale in g
IIIO Dame niuumi --- m
digent patients sent to other hos- ;
pitgls. The daily rate per patient |
at "Farmingdale is $1.25 per day. p
Resolutions were adopted author- g
Izing the admittance of eight new g
patienta to the tuberculosis hospital P
at Bonnie Burne. seven of the suf- |
ferers being residents of Perth Am- ^
boy. Though ".he cost to the county g
for each of these patients is $18 g
per week which continues to in- r
crease at an alarming rate, no action |
has been taken by the State Board B
- of Health in approving the site for |
^^■Miunty hospital which would make •
H^Balble the treatment of many of
W flffese patients at a point nearer ,
F their hopies. =
Freeholder Applegate informed |
the board that a timber bridge on r
the road leading from Milltown to g
> J-'resh Pounds was rapidly going to g
pieces from the heavy trucking that !
goes over it. and was in need of \
immediate repairs.
Mr. Applegate favors the replac- j
|ng of the small timber bridges of t
the county with concrete as fast as !
they show the need of extensive re- |
pairs as it would in time greatly 1
reduce the amount of money re- \
quired annually for maintenance. 5
Freeholder J. Fred Orpen concurred ;
in the stand taken by Mr. Apple- |
' gate, by declaring that in his opin- -
ion it was a waata of csruirty funds 15
in continually repairing structures =
\ 'ten permanent bridges of con- ;
c. ete would relieve the conditions g
for years to come. Mr. Applegate s
i and county Engineer Frederick C. B
J Schneider were instructed to inspect |
the bridges and majje a report with p
recommendations at the next meet- !
