Council Meeting
Council met in regular session
last night with all officers pres
ent except the marshal and two
L Baldwin of Baldwin &
Swope contractors and builders
was present and contended for
the council to vote a payment on
the cement walks constructed
this winter of 85 per cent value
on the walks which have had a
top surface put on them. The
council were unable to pass an
order for payment due to the
fact that no contract has ever
been presented or signed by any
of the city officers.
What part of - the sidwalks
should be considered as com
pleted underwent considerable
Several property owners were
present who with members of
the council compromised to a
statement of 75 percent pay
ment to be made on the sur
faced walks, regardless of the
unfinished work. Mayor Wilson
objected, holding, and with
practical argument, that GO per
cent payment would be liberal
on the part of the city toward
the contractors, considering the
unfinished territory and the
damage done by the freezing of
the cement when it was fresh.
About 90 per cent of the sur
facing will have to be replaced
on the blocks above Sixth steet.
Mayor Wilson wrote a sugges
tive amendment to the present
ordinance, intended to clear up
difficulties and place the matter
in shape to be regularly cleared
of complications.
Mr. Baldwin stated that a
contract was mailed B. D. Fra
ley on the walk proposition, but
as it was never received or sign
ed by any of the city officers, it
. remains a frfct that they were
bound by no contract nor any
formal order for work given.
Dr. Stovall and L. C. Henne-
A ghan stated that 75 per cent was
not too much to allow for pres
ent payment.
