men plan to visit areas where

a number of years. If Edenton i
is adaptable, so far as soil and I
other requirements are concern- 1
ed, it will mean a considerable
saving of money over the pres
ent proposed sewage disposal
Another problem facing the
Councilmen was the report that
the Edenton Motel’s swimming
pool was constructed on town
property. It was pointed out
that the town has a 25-foot]
right-of-way back of the houses
on the West side of Broad
Street known as Hughes Street
and that Vg patio of the pool
is built entirely across this piece*
of town property. It was also]
stated that the motel owners'
had leased a portion of the old]
railroad property, beyond thel
town’s street and that no build-j
ing permit had been secured to]
construct the pool.
W. E. Mills, building inspec
tor, reported, however, that an
application had' been made for
a building permit after the con
struction had been in progress
but that he could not issue one
due to the pool being on town
property. Members of the Fi
nance Committee were instruct
ed to contact Shelton Moore re
garding his contention as to his
deed calling for use of the land
and to bring back recommenda
tions at the next meeting.
