PLIMMERTON EXTENSION

"LARGE ENOUGH FOR A NAME."

..A suggestion, which was supported by the chairman (Councillor H. D.

IKb speaker said the extension; was. certainly* at one time the tail of Plimmerton, but it had now extended so much that it was entitled to a name of its own.'.The proposal to call the centre Karehana Bay originated because of the'fact that the chief of the old pa there was named Karehana. .

Councillor Atkinßon: "A p very good suggestion, too."

The deputation, which was the outcome of a public meeting at Plimmerton Extension on Saturday evening, also asked the council to either make improvements to or close down the present public water supply, which was in a Bad state of repair, and in which the water wag low and dirty. It constituted a public menance. A suggestion was also made thaUthe .council might, put in a drain in tfie swamp, allowing drainage to be carried out. This would enable residents to drain the properties and. improve the area generally. Tlje residents had done a lot of work in the centre, with a view to getting the" council to give them some assistance. So far as labour was concerned, the residents would help. The fencing of the six and a half acres from which the water supply was drawn would cost about £45 without labour. :

The council after a short discussion decided to take the necessary steps to change the name of the centre to that suggested, and to prepare estimates of the cost of effecting drainage. - It was definitely decided to effect improvements to the water storage area. <
