As soon as these are placed all "flat rates" will be abandoned and all users will be compelled to pay for water uaad.

"Tbs water system at present it fiat rata, giving the customer access to all the water be wishes for onr dollar per month. During the part few weeks the water department has been handicapped to keep a sufficient supply of water for the present ser vice connections, not allowing any reserve supply for fire protection. During the recent Area, which de stroyed eeveral thousand deliars worth of property, a good portion of which could have been saved, the fact that a good many of our cus tomers had left their pipe* open to pre vent (reeling caused the pressure t* be low and inadequate for Are fighting purposes. "Realising tbs seriousness of the condition now existing and the a mount of property at stake, relying aolely un the Municipal Water De partment for protection in case of fire, I beg to eubmit for your approval the following suggestions and recommendation! and ask that you ranaldcr the tame and taka aueh action as you think beet regarding the unsafe condition of yonr Water Department. a Waate Larger Supply At present wc have one wall from which to obtain water for customers and lira protection.

This is not in my department nor under my juriediction, but I heartily rec ommend that a modern fire alarm system be iaataHad, which srlll ellro-. inate so much confusion when the alarm u turned In. In connection | with this 1 think there should he a competent man employed to remain St the Are station to keep the truck and all Are Aghting equipment in t.nrviceeoiv conaiuon and b« ready at all limes to aaswer tha alarm. This I think is very necessary for a rase you do not sell t will submit for 1 your consideration soma suggestions! which I think if carried out would prove very helpful. "In view of the fact that the light plant haa to rely solely on eeal for fuel and which for tha past faw months haa bsee very scarce and hard to got, and at the same time very expensive, I would tuggest and recommend that there be insulted two direct connected crude oil en gines in tuch units as may be deter mined to meet present and faturc needs. With tbe Installation of a plant of this kind I feel that it could be operated with lens eapenae than the present steam plant, and at the same time give the customers the benefit of a cheaper lighting and pow er rate. “1 am merely offering this as a suggestion for your consideration. The present plant has become loaded te such an extent that we are not able to rive our customers such ser vice as they desire and for which they arv paying. In view of the condition* that now oziat I recommend that we decline to furnish any additional light or water service until some change is made to better equip our plant for service.” BUIE'S CREEK OPENS" WITH MANY STUDENTS Over Sla Hands ad Stadaata Registered at Opaalag af Baptists S she el.
