            The main streets were cleaned, and sidewalks and footbridges throughout the City maintained in repair.

            A 7x12 Mitchell rock crusher, with elevator, was purchased at a cost of $575 with the object of providing more suitable material for street maintenance and repair.

            The Fire Chief was instructed to have the Fire Hydrants covered as usual for the winter months.

            Requests were received from Firemen R. Simpson and W. Foster for an increase in salary.
