The action the water commissioners at their last meeting which fixed meter rates at 1 cents per 1000 Gallons for Large fans has resulted in quite a protest from local hotel my a and others who maintain fans for tin Comfort their patrons. Fred Jacobs Johnny Moyer w. C. Williams Elias Mair and g. Fred Smith appeared before the commissioners monday emphatically declaring that they could not the four cent rate which raises the Cost four fans from $14 to Over #50. They were unanimous in notifying the commissioners that unless they reduced the meter rates to a much lower figure it would be needless expenditure for the Borough to install meters their premises As they could not afford to operate the fans and would throw them out. The water commissioners in their attempt to readjust the rates for the various uses to which water is put find anything hut Clear sailing. Every attempt to do the Borough Justice seems to bring both a protest from the water takers who consider themselves aggrieved by the Burden imposed. Over an hour monday was spent in a fruitless controversy Between the visiting hotel men and the water commissioners. The former begged that the Cost fans be fixed at a Lump sum for the season that they be charged at the rate to $5 per fan for each one installed. Previously they paid by the season $5 for fan and at tin rate #5 each for All above that number. The water commissioners insisted that they could not see their Way Clear to make Auy reduction. The new rates were fixed pursuant to a Resolution Council a basis which leaves Tom Borough a loser. The Cost pumping the water amounts to Ltd cents 1000 Gallons. Our very 1000 Gallons which goes to operate fans the Borough loses 2 cents which amounts to a big sum in the course a year. To put the fan rates still lower would he highly unjust to tin water takers in general who Are taxed up to the full most operating tin water Plant. Although they admitted that the fan rates seemed High higher probably than the hotel men could afford to Fet it was tin sense the Board water commissioners that in the premises there is no room for any further action their part. To favor the applicants would be an act discrimination that they would not be guilty . The hotel men declare their intention next appearing before Council asking that that body Auti ionize the water commissioners to reduce the meter rates. No rates having As yet been fixed for the Small counter fans for which #1.50 pm a season was previously charged the water commissioners monday decided to proceed Asiu the Case the larger fans namely to test one the number to determine the Quantity water used and to charge at the rate 4 cents per 1000 Gallons. On motion superintendent Keefer was instructed to Lay some 200 feet 2-Inch pipe Nassau Street to connect the main with a couple dwellings there whose owners desire to use Borough water. Or. Corman explained that although the clerk has done duty Well and made All the collections that could have been expected yet the Hooks show a number that Are in arrears. He therefore moved that in All cases where water rent due april 1st, is not paid within 30 Days the water be turned off aug a the clerk proceed to collect the Hill he Law.
