TO CONTINUE STREET WORK
Groensboro 'Board Aldermen Authorize Street
Commissioner to Borrow $50,000
(Special Correspondence.) , -
Greensboro, N. G," May 21th.
The Board of Aldermen of Greens
boro at a meeting last night authorized
the street, commissioner to borrow $50,
000 for the purpose of continuing the
work of grading and paving streets of
the city. In furtherance of the action,
the Mayor was authorized to execute
five notes payable eight months after
date for $10,000 each with interest at
six per cent. .- Under a recent ordi
nance requiring abutting property own
ers to pay ono-forrh the expense of
paving, this, means the expenditure of
another $100,000 here for street im
provement. The Supreme court of the
State having in a recent decision de
clared that "water sewerage and good
stree's were "necessary expenses of a
city" the' constitutional requirement of
a vote of approval by the people for
borrowing money did not apply in such
cases, is the motive power behind this
pft repeated borrowing of money with
out a vote of the people by Greensboro's
city authorities. A splendid new city
water works extention is now being
ing completed with money borrowed
under the same decision of the Supreme
court without a vote authorizing it.
The office of supervisor of street
work was created, and Mr.' J. Giles
