Franchise Granted and Plant
to Be Completed Within
At an adjourned session of the
City Council Wednesday evening a
franchise was granted II. L. Collins,
A. C. Smith and J. F. Stewart to
build and operate an electric light
plant and distributing system in
the city of Toledo. The work on
the plant is to begin within three
months and is to be completed
within six months.
The rate to be charged for the
llfchto is to be governed by the
council and is to be taken from an
average of the price charged by
light plants of five towns of like
size in Oregon. The price for arc
lights for the city will be $7.50 per
month for each 1200 candle power
The franchise is for twenty-five
years, but should the city wish to
purchase the plant at any time,
under the terms of the franchise, it
may do so.
It is also understood that the
light company also intends operat
ing a creamery and cold storage
plant which will also be a great
help to Toledo and vicinity.
