Taking action on the resolutions passed at last meeting of the Borough Council, his Worship the Mayor has forwarded the nndorgiven letter to the Mayors of the various boroughs in Canterbury, enclosing copies of the resolutions of the Borough Council regarding the proposed Municipal Association ;
Sir,—-I have the honor, by request of this Council, to forward you copies of resolutions passed at the last ordinary meeting, held on Monday, the Cth inst., and trust that they will receive your favorable consideration. As questions with reference to endowments, subsidies, and fees which come to the boroughs are continually arising, united action in all these matters will tend to strengthen the claims of the various municipalities with the Government ; also in connection with the negotiation of loans, framing byelaws, drainage, and water supply. Several other matters of great importance will be discussed by the delegates. It is suggested that this assocation should at present be confined to the Canterbury provincial district, but at some future time may be extended so as to include the whole of the Middle Island.—l have, ttc.,
(Signed) Thos. Buixock, Mayor.
