GBEY LYNN COUNCIL DISCUSSION.
gome discussion ensued at a special noting of the Grey Lynn Borough foainal last evening on matters relating to y, e proposal for the extension of the iiamways toward* Richmond. The rcußcU's solicitor (Mr. J. E. Keed) and : iL:en<rtoeer (Mr. H. M. TVHson) were resent"to advise the Council on certain ?~Jnl* Tequiring consideration in the ■ffin-Conncfl. The Mayor (Mr. G. gi Tgrs ) presided. The Order-in-Council provided for the of the lines from the present ierminus along Surrey-crescent and Rich-wond-avenue to the corner of Warnockthis to constitute an extra penny - section. ■ Hi. G- J- Garland moved that a coniinitt e ' c be set U P to %va t on the rn ana g cr of the Tramways Company with a view to laving before him the questions of residential tickets, a halfpenny fare on •ffie new section, and the continuation of workmen's tickets a? at present. The .'nt&akeJ pointed out that the new eection was only one-third of the distance of the second "section from Pitt-street to the terminus. Otter members suggested that the pre«nt section from the reservoir to Arch jjj]i should be duplicated, as the single im£ was the cause of frequent delays. 1 was remarked that the present serio Grey Lynn was very- irregular, especially on holidays, and that the proliosal for a thirty-minutes' service to Bictanond was not nearly sufficient. The same speaker said if the Company masted on. the new penny section he would i ie more j ße iined to wait for the extenB l on "liiitll come futurcrtiate. ' -The Council decided that the solicitor be empowered to deal with the matter o' seeing that the Order-in-Couneil exWie3 contemporaneously with that previously entered into by the Council regarding the present tramway system. -The Mayor (Mr. G. Sayers) said that ■jt. -was time they had a double line, -with Hie rapidly increasing population of Grey
Lynn. He felt, certain this would result in a better paying line. It wac a matter of great importance -that they should; have residential tickets, if, as had been state, Grey Lynn was the only line that had no such facilities. The thirty-min-utes' service proposed was worse than ever and would certainly not do. It wae also decidfed to refer the following matters to the committee in addition to those previously mentioned: — A double line from the reservoir to the present terminus; return tickets; a flf-teen-minutesHservice between 7 arid 9 a m. and 4.30 and 6.30 p.m., and a thirtyminutes service at other times. Both the resolutione were carried, it bting also decided that the committee consist of Messrs. Garland, Holdeworth, Murray, Schofield, and the Mayor.
