Municipal Notes. I


Municipal Notes. I 1 'V Waste of Water. tv I The attention, of every householder is directed to the serious report in another column of the present position of our water supply. We referred to this mat- ter a few week ago and the warning we then gave was more than borne out by the Deputy Surveyor at the meeting of tho Waterworks Committee. It is quite clear that unless the greatest economy is exercised, the supply to the works will have to be cut off. There is a tremendous wastage going on, and it is to be hoped that every householder will make it a matter of duty to himself and the com- munity to see that his taps are in order. Fpncy a million gallons being wasted daily Town Hall Square. I Plans for a fine new building near the Town Hall were laid before the Corpor- ation this week by Messrs. J. and B. Evens. The proposal of the promoters is to put up a fine cinema, with a number of shops, making a great architectural addition to the town. The Surveyor ex- plained that the plans had net yet been finally completed, but it was important that tho building line should be fixed without delay. Smoke Nuisance. I Complaints are renewed about the smoke nuisanco in Station road. The M.O.H. told tho Health Committee that when he drew attention to this some time ago, the nuisance was immediately remedied. Ooun. D. R. Jones: Station road is a black spot at the best of times, but still it can be improved. It was decided to communicate with the works management. Motor for Fire Brigade. I It was reported to the l-toads Commit- tee of the Council on Monday that an offer had been received for the immediate delivery of a light motor cart to be ex- clusively used for fire brigade purposes. Councillor Jennings (jocularly) There are to be no joy rides (laughter). It was decided to recommend the Coun- cil to accept the offer. It was also recommended that the Council purchase "Sentinel" wagons at £ 1,295, to carry five tons. Unfit for abitation. I The Medical Officer reported that a pre- liminary notice was served upon Miss M. N. Bennett, 29, Mina street, calling upon her to do certain repairs within 28 days. Nothing had been done. Owing to the premises being unfit for human habitation he now made representation to the Coun- cil to that effect. He suggested that the owner be invited to attend the next meet- ing of the Council, when the making of a. mpg Order should be considered.
