CITY STREETS AND SIDE
WALKS TO BE IMPROVED
At a recent meeting, the Board of
City Commissioners agreed to let
contracts and look after the construc
tion of a number of streets which
they feel should be improved with
cement or asphalt Petitions are now
being circulated among the property
owners with the exception of the in
tersection of streets, which is to be
borne by the town.
Tt is estimated that there will be
about five miles of additional im
proved street and sidewalk work done
this year and the commissioners hope
to have these petitions before them
so as to let a contract early in March.
Sometime ago the commissioners
entered into a contract with the J. B.
McCrary company, engineers, of At
lanta, Ga., to make a complete sur
vey of the town for all sfdewalk and
street work. They made maps of the
city which will be on. file in the town's
office in a few weeks. Anyone want
ing to build a new home on any of
the unimproved streets may see these
plans so as to' know the grade and
the exact location of the street.
