Councilman Losllo Baskins, chair
man of tho ordinance committee of
tho city council, who started in to
propnro tho ordinances calling for n
voto on tho proposition to lssuo bonds
for the extension of water and sowor
mnlns, struck n snag that caused him
to halt. It was gcnorallyiaccoptcd
that under tho law a city of this class
could Issue water bonds up to. twonty
flvo per cent of tho assessed valua
tion but In looking up tho, statutes
Mr. Baskins found that as a' city, wo
are limited to water bonds in tho sum
of J150.000. Wo hnvo already out
standing f 80,000 ill wntcr bonds, so
that tho amount additional that could
be issuod would bo but $70,000. This
is loss than half tho amount which
would bo needed to complete tho ex
tensions as outlined by. tho mayor,
tho city council and Wator Commis
sioner Welch, and tho program of
tho extension will therefore need bo
abandoned for tho prosont year, at
Just what action will bo takon In tho
mattor will bo docfclod at tho regular
meeting of tho council which wilt bo
hold at tho city hall tonight.
Counciman Baskins' plan is to lay
out n program of future extensions
and voto a certain amount of bonds
each year until tho program is com
pleted. This is probably about tho
host courso that can bo pursued.
