The Mayor e&id. that though at the present time there was plenty of water in the reservoir in a dry season tbn creek was not sufficient, and when residents of the town were using irons and kettles it was not right to cut the water off in the daytime. Several residents would not take irons and kettles on that account, and the Council should not sell power it could noi supply. When the other creek was let in an unlimited amount of water would be procurable. He thought that with the other creek the ! Council's revenue would be much increased.
