City Plant Likely to Suffer.
Despite assurance from City Com
missioner Barbur yesterday that the
city paving- plant would be able to
continue without difficulty, it is cer
tain that because of the inability of
the city to market its bonds, the plant
will suffer seriously.
Commissioner Barbur proposed to
utilize money from the improvement
bond sinking fund for investment in
new improvement bonds as the means
of financing: the paving- plant. Such a
plan is said to be clearly legal, but
would require action by the city coun
cil. Commissioner Barbur admits that
there is little hope for a market for
city bonds until after January 1, 1921.
Inasmuch as money in the improve
ment bond sinking fund is for the re
tirement of bonds when they mature,

City Attorney LaRoche yesterday for

by the city council, will permit pri

wurrants for improvement bonds, if
such contractors will bid at par and
Such an exchange would allow the
city to cancel the warrant without
necessity of raising cash and would
also enable the city to dispose of its
improvement bonds in conformity
with the provisions of the city charter.
