To Consider Election On
Street Railway Paving
The question of passing or' submit
ting to the voters an ordinance .sub
mitted some time ago with petitions,
elieving the Grand Forks Street Rail
way company from all paving costs
for a period of ten years from Janu
ary 1, 1921. came before the city com
mission today, when City Auditor
Charles Evanson certified the peti
tions to the commissioners. The
question was referred to the commit
tee of the whole, which will meet be
fore the next commission meeting to
determine upon a course of action.
Indications, are that the ordinance
will be submitted to the voters. In
that event election Judges apd clerks
probably will be asked to serve ..with
out pay to do away with the greater
part of the election expenses.
The commission also decidcd to ad
vertise for bids for supplying lignite
coal for use in all city plants.
The contract for the construction
of watermain on Strong avenue was
awarded to J. M. Carroll. The work
will cost approximately $6,000.
