Cr Noonan made several suggestions re electric light matters. The Mayor moved these suggestions be referred to the Lighting Committee to report to next meeting. Seconded by Cr Cantrell and carried.

Cr Noonan said that sometime ago a resolution was passed that plaques be placed in the streets showing the distance between the fire plugs. There was also a box supposed to be erected for hose in Balgueri street.

Cr Haylock said the inspector of Nuisances was supposed to make a tour of the town and report. He would like the inspector to report on the matter. The Clerk and Inspector of Nuisances said he had not had time to complete the inspection of the Borough. As regards the matter of nuisances complained of by Miss Kotlowski, it appeared that the drainage from her house went under the house to connect with another drain. She had not reported since of the nuisance continuing.

Cr Haylock said that he thought'as the Inspector got a special fee he should not do the work in Council hours.

The Clerk said there was no special fee

Cr Haylock said that this fact altered the case altogether. He quite understood the Inspector was paid a special fee.

Cr'Noonan moved plaques indicating distances of five plugs be painted and that a fire box be procured for hose in Balgueri street. Seconded by Cr Williams and carried.
