City Inspector of
Weights - Measures
Asks More Salary
Increase in the number of grace ies, pumping stations and other busine* i establishments using scales from 86 in October 192 3 to a total of 208 at the present time, was the reason given Friday afternoon by C. C. Cheshire, city weights and measures inspector, for applying to the board of city commissioners for an increase in salary. The matter was taken under advisement. _m.
“When I started with the city there were only 86 places in which scales had to be inspected. I agreed to work for $50 a month, furnishing my own car. Now there are 118 groceries with one to four scales, and 90 pumping stations with one to four pumps each. It is impossible for me to reach ell of them each month. You have other inspectors, an«^ when I heard it read in the minutes that the sanitary inspector is getting $150 a month I felt badly. I’m glad the man got it and hope he keeps it but I want more money myself, gentlemen,’’ said Mr. Cheshire.
“We’rq only getting $25 a month,” rejoined Commissioner Ferguson, jovially.
“Well, I voted for Coombes’ amendment to raise your salaries and that of the mayor. But the majority didn’t see it that way," replied Mr. Cheshire. “And, too, if I were thinking of running for office I’d first find out how much it paid and if T dkldn’t want to work for that anvC^ast I wouldn’t run." he added and Was assured by w'ords and smiles of Mayor Hayden that his petition would be carefully considered.
