FRUIT DEALERS GIVEN REMINDER NAT BOYD HAD GILT EDGED JOB CITY OFFICIALS IN MIX-UP OVEl PRICE TO BE PAID TO GRAD- ING CONTRACTOR Last year the clly awarded tho j> K. Boyd Co., a. contract for gradiiii several streets in tho east of the- cK. tho contract, being let for the luni sum of No meii'Uon whiil ever was made of yardage. During the summer at tho revues of several of the citizens uii the 'utrceti to he graded Hie levels were changec so that thu contractor was required to move only about hall' thy wantage Oi Ich he figured ou tho engineer's specifications. However lie- covered the whole surface called for in the contract, and did the contract ac- cording to the engineer's revised Sjieel li eat ions. Nothing was said about the matter at that time, but it is now cropping up and promises to be a. veritable tho'rn in the flesh or the city oflieials. The council wishes to pay him for the work on a basis of ttho number of of earth removed at the priue per yard which the original contract would amount to. Mr. Boyd, who is now in the city, wante the full contract price of Mr. Boyd sublet his contract get- ting at 23 cents per yard. Considering the number of yards of earth really (lie price ac- cording to his coirtfact, Mr. Boyd would be getting fifty cents per yard for tho grading. The city does not feel inclined' to pay the difference. Mr. Boyd says he finished the contract according to the city engineer's speci- fications and.-is therefore entitled: to the full amount.. The city wants the contractor to "-do some work this year to liil out his contract which they claim is i-ncom- plete. The contractor says con- tract Js complete and that ho cannot be required pto do work he has never figured on. Just how the controversy will end hard to say, but it will likely be fought out at the council meeting on i Tuesday next.
