IS OFF ON FACTS
Geo. E. Gay Says Mayor Dis
plays Ignorance of Condi
tions. Editor Palatka News:
Mayor Davis' message to the City
Council, in which he so severely criti
cises the Board of Bond Trustees, dis
plays such an ignorance of the condi
tions that it is hard to credit, consider
ing the knowledge he should have of
the city's affairs and the access he has
to the records of the City Council.
Mr. Davis has in the past made public
statements regarding the Board of Bond
Trustees, which when uttered, I firmly
believe he considered correct; but in
vestigation proved they were not in ac
cordance with facts.
While, with the balance of our citi
zens, J regret the delay in the matter of
lurtuer pavement of our city s streets, I
respectfully submit the following, which
are matters ot public record and nol
statements based upon impressions, un
reliable information, or a desire to mis
lead the public.
Section 4. of ordinance creating the
Board of Bond Trustees for the City of
ralatka, Ma., and their duties, as passed
in open council November 19th, 1901:
"When the Board of Bond Trustees
shall deem it advisable to make a con
tract for the execution of work or for
the purchase of any material or matters
under its charge, to an amount exceed
ing Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00), a
careful estimate shall be made in detail
of the cost of such work or material,
and the Board of Bond Trustees shall
transmit to the Mayor and City Council
with its recommendation, with an esti
mate of the cost, and upon the passage
of an ordinance by the Mayor and City
Council authorizing the expenditure, il
shall be the duty of the said Board of
Bond Trustees to advertise and let such
work and to purchase such material
from the lowest bidder. The expenses
of the Bond Trustees necessarily incurr
ed in the discharge of their duties as
such shall be born by the city, but they
shall receive no salary or further com
pensation." At a meeting of the Board of Bond
Trustees held Oct. 19th, 1910 the follow-
ng estimate of paving was submitted to
the City Council.
Oct. 19th, 1909.
The Honorable Board of Council
City of Palatka, Fla.
1 am directed by the Board of Bond
Trustees for the City of Palatka, to sub

GEO. E. GAY,
Secretary Board of Bond Trustees.
Prior to this, at a meeting of the

1909, the following action was taken:

Yours very truly,
GEO. E. GAY.
