called to the Village of Jessieville where some sewer system should he provided as early as possible Another matter of very great im portance to the health of this com munity and which should receive the earnest consideration of this council s the question of furnishing to our citizens a supply of good water for do mestic consumption The water now furnished our city for domestic con sumption by the Ironwood Water Works company is unsatisfactory The system recently installed by this company for filtering and purifying the water seems to be the rigS sys tem but the report of our city engin eer submitted to the former council shows that the settling tanks are in sufficient in size to accomplish their purpose The franchise of the Water company has but a few years to run The question of furnishing a whole some supply of water for domestic purposes not only at the present time but for the future should receive the careful and continued attention of this council During the last year we accomplish ed much by having the unsightly tel ephone poles removed from the busi ness part of the city The conditions should be further improved by the re moval of the wooden poles of the Elestric Light company and this mat ter the council should take up in a businesslike way with the company and begin negotiations looking for the removal of the wooden trolley poles as well as the other wooden poles car rying the electric light wires and the installation of iron poles of approved design The work of improving the highj ways and sidewalks of the city should also continue and as much be expend
