PORT CHALMERS BROUGH COUNCIL.
TO THE EDITOR. Sib,— As a disgusted citizen I wish to
draw attention to the disgraceful state of the would-be croßsing at the foot of Constitution street. It is almost impossible to get through the three inches of mud and water without spoiling your clothes. Does not this state of things reflect great credit on the Port Chalmers Borough Council ? It is strange that there are three crossings over this same road a little further along, within 300 yds of each other, and none at this place, wherelt is most needed. The inspector has been spoken to two or three times on the subject, and he says it is impossible to put one over there, and was so kind as to improve matters by throwing on.clay, which ho • called gravel, and which aid not improve matters. Tho inspector says a crossing cannot be put put over. Why? Is it because a councillor docs not live in Constitution street ? If so, we citizens ought to rise up and demand our rights.—l am, etc. Disgusted. Port Chalmers, June 28.
