MEETING OF RESIDENTS,
The residents on the eastern side of Port Levy have for years suffered inconvenience because of> the heed uf a jetty. There is, of course, one on the opposite side of the bay, but is too far removed from those living on ibe eastern side to be of much use to tb'-ru
and an endeavour is now being juuclh to improve matters. On Satunluj
evening to deal with tbs question, a 4 meeting of residents was held in the schoolroom, Mr B. Hastings presiding over a good attendance.
Iα bis opening remarks, the chairman, after making reference to bis relations with the Maori residents of the district, t said that, although be was not a resident of Port\Levy, his sympathies were with the proposal. He submitted a draft of a petition to the Lytfcelton Harbour Board, setting out the great inconvenience suffered by the people in being without a landing stage. Mr R. Fleming etated that he was in sympathy with the proposal of a signed petition being placed before the authorities, be signed by the residents, property holders, and visiters to Port Levy, and forwarded to the Board." The motion was carried unanimously. A suggestion was made that a deputation should present the petition in conjunction with one from the boating entousiasts, but Mr Wilson thought that that of the residents would, if presented, be sufficient. Hβ moved:— "That the petition, when ready, be sent to the Board." The motion was carried. Ib was resolve-l that Messrs RuKu and Solomon should Becure the neces aary gignitures and forward tbem to Mr Hastings, who would arrange with Mr F. D. Kesteven for the preaenta tion of both petition to the Harbour Board at its nexf meeting.
