Tho City Solicitor au Opintou on the Irfgal Aspects of Uic Sew- erage Question Also to Go Ahead. A joint session of Councils was held last President Wlritehead iu the chair. Members Edgett. Goldsborongn and Terrell. The report of the Joint Street Commit- tee on paving Main street was as was also the estimate of the City aud tbey were adopted. The City Solicitor submitted the follow- iiig April 22. Jto the Councils of ihe City tho request of the Street Committee t have examined the law in refer- ence to the manner of passing ordinances for pavinp a street. The Act of May P. pngc rciids Councils citios in this commonwealth shall not any crdimmoe uuthorixiup the grading or paving ol any street or or tlic construction of any sewer or bridge before they have caused the City Engineer to make AH estimate of the tottil cost of such ivarttcularly sintiiig ihe items mul tlio cost of a map or plan ol all the properly liable to assess- ment for cost 01' ihe nm 1 also caused the bonnl viewers or otbcr olllcers whom ihe duty may law be Imposed to view the Uieliiilod in the map orpliui of the property liable to such mul inakciisohedulo showing the total cash value of the same as nearly as can be and the amount oneh property-owner will be liable to jiny for sutih which mtip or plan und schedule shall be attached to the ordiiianee before its and shall re- main on file in the proper ollice for the benefit persons with a further proviso that any ordinance of this kiud passed iu any other way shall be null and void. I find the City Engineer was in- structed to make such plan and estimate for the paving of Main and that in obedience to his instructions ho did and reported to Coun- cil such a plan and which were adopted by Councils January and then a board ol viewers wore us provided in the net referred but this board of viewers never reported. The City Engineer now for your giving you the option in adopt cither of the one of them the same old plan already and the other a now plan which co ntc in plates the shortening the dis- tance between ibe curb lines eight inches. In my opinion you cau adopt cither but bear iti mind that is only After you have adopted some plan that you can appoint tho viewers and have them uiako their Assessments. YOUCAHRCCALAplauce thai they have nothing to guide thorn In making their assessments until they know the total cost. After all ihis then an ordinance Is passed. Of course if you adopt the second plan shortening the distance between the curb lines von will have lo include that provision ''to shorten tho distance between curb in your and repeal all parts of ordinances inconsistent with H. And if then it was desired to make the side- walks wider you would have to pass an ordi- nance for that purpose. The new plans Mibmittcd by the City Engineer about -100 feel of sewerage from tho Erie where tbe paving to the to cost about 3500. This raises anew Tho mode of assessing tbe cost of sewerage and the cost of paving and therefore the sewcrafio would have to be provided for by ft separate ordinance. Your obedient B. City Solicitor.
