New Borough Loan Proposals.

o At the meeting of the Feilding Borough Council last evening the desirability of improving the roads was discussed on a motion proposed by Cr Stunell, and seconded by Cr P. Thomson, " That a committee be set up, to consist of the Mayor, Crs P Thomson, Bagnall, Bartholomew and the mover, with power to obtain an estimate for putting the roads, footpaths and water channels in proper order with a view of getting the sanction of the ratepayers to a loan for the same ; tbe committee to report to the next meeting of the Council." In speaking to this motion the Mayor thought the Council should be prepared to go to tho expense of get* ting a report from a practical engineer, if the motion was carried. This would probably cost not less than £50. He was in favour of tbe motion but thought it right to point out tho possible cost. To do the work roquired properly it would cost £10,000. In fact, thoy could not then provide for all surface water. Cr Stunell agreed that some comprehensive scheme should be brought forward to improve the state of the streets. Cr Bagnall believed a loan for the improvement of the streets would be carried. Cr P. Thomson concurrei with that view. Tbe motion was cariied on a division ; ayes — The Ma;, or, Crs Bartholomew, Bagnall, P. Thomson, Haggit nnd Stunell ; noes- Crs Tvs« tin, J, C. Thompson, Wilson and Fowles.
