This is the gist of a report prepared by Messrs.

It is shown that total cost of the - physicaL part., of. -the .system, has been, $1,100,000. Of this the taxpayers ,have paid and will pay a total of about $600,-000 represented by bond issues, interest on , bonds and money appropriated out of funds raised by taxation. This sum is more than offset by the value during thirty-four years of public water .service for fire hydrants, parks, public buildings and the IDce. The meter system of selling water has reduced consumption without reducing the revenues, which now annually amoxmt to $100,000.
