Water rates for business houses were discussed with Councilman Roy Gale suggesting the purchase of meters. The consensus of opin- ion was that they would be too costly in view of the limited budget.

The meeting was concluded with a not-too-encouraging financial report given by City Clerk, Art Webber and City Treasurer, John Maloney. *** Gym night for the ladies is being held at the school on Thursday night at 7:30 p.m., assisted by Mrs. Phyllis Kostur, high school teacher.
