The committee appointed at the last meeting presented its report which i was read by the president. The following recommendations were made i to the citizens of the Borough of , in town meeting assembled your committee appointed to consider the abatement of the nuisance of blizzards Creek an other matters and to submit some plan of action looking that end. Respectfully report that it met on Friday evening nov. 1st, and a after considering the various questions involved find it is alleged that the polish lithuanian brewing co. Contaminates and pm Al a Lutes Buzzard a a Creek by emptying j offensive matter into it audit is the duty of the Borough Council As the re a preventative of All the taxpayers to see that this nuisance is abated. We believe that this can be done. 1st.�?by bringing a criminal prosecution against Trio a who Are guilty of the i offence. 2nd. By bringing a Bill in equity ask Jing the courts to enjoin the offenders from a further continuance of the nuisance. And in the Borough Council fail a to perform their duty As Public servants in applying one of these two remedies to the evil the citizens can have the Boro Ough Council As a body prosecuted for the maintenance of this Public nuisance and for the non performance of their duties As councilmen in the criminal courts of on county. The Council should repeal any Ordin a Anee or ordinances that allow any of its citizens to empty sewerage or drainage into said by Izzard a Creek. Relief could be Hail if some enterprising citizen were to install an odourless excavating outfit. It is a Lone elsewhere Why not Here that As to a Public Sye tem a of sewerage tiie need May he great but the Best plan is to be considered 1 an at this time the financial condition of Danville Dot yes not warrant a genera1 undertaking in that direction. That it is not to be thought of As an alternative to give it to a foreign Cor rotation in order that the citizens May be bled am try attempt in this direction at this time ought to he met with resistance in the courts and a if warranted even to the extent of prosecutions. The committee also submit 1-t. That the citizens condemn the employment of an Engineer from abroad when there Are men among our own citizens competent to give the information who would have done so tor very much less Cost. 2nd a that the citizens demand that Council obtain a proper re Lucia in of to e Bill for surveying if the amount is As publicly reported the exorbitant sum of 2.200 dollars. 3rd�?that the citizens condemn the i manner in which the contract was Given for lighting the Borough there being no necessity for a special session for that purpose. 4th. That the citizens appoint a com Mittic with Power to solicit subscriptions Ami employ competent counsel so that if Council refuses to perform its Plain �1 Mies a above indicate the citizens ctn apply for Relief from the courts. The committee suggests that the real remedy is with the citizens who should ignore political lines in Borough affairs by calling a town meeting to nominate local officers Ltd he voted for at the Spring election. Respectfully submitted f. E. H Appel. W g , com ii. I. Gross a i Neil in Rock i Wesley moved that the report be adopted As a whole. The motion was seconded by another voice in the Aud ence.
