Council proceedings of Dec. 1, 1873. Dr. Mund, presented report on committee on water works, assigned to Mr. Mund, Mr. Curry and Mr. Moore. Mr. Kauke refused to sign, recommending the purchase of six of the Kampsick pattern of Babcocks fire extinguishers to be used by the Hook and Ladder Co..
Mr. Kauke moved that it be laid on the table. Motion lost. Mr. Kauke objected to the payment of bill on account of inferior of work. Billed Pat Kennedy for laying guttering on south side of E South Street, report was accepted, and the bill referred to Civil Engineer Mr. Brinkerhoff for report. President McDonald offered a resolution. On motion of Mr. McDonald, the city council appropriated room in the lockup for the purpose of using the same for accommodation of paupers. On motion of Mr. Mund, the bills of Seib and Hattinger for work on stone culvert on Cemetery Street was referred to finance committee. Mr. Charles Gasche asked for information as to whether property owners in the vicinity had right to rum cellar and privy drains into sewer on N. Buckeye Street without paying for the privilege. If that was to be made a pubic sewer, he claimed he was entitled to some compensation for 110, as he had personally paid to build it. It was referred to city auditor Carr for legal opinion.
Communication from E Quimby Jr. came that the time of laying plank walk on south side of E South Street, across the railroad be extended till spring because of fact that it was not sufficient thawing and whether will not permit such work. Council refused to receive the communication on the ground that walk had been sold. Several of the members further expressed their disappointment of the habitual direction with which Mr. Quimby for years, had pursued in laying his payment in different parts of the City of Wooster.
Dec. 15th council. Mr. Immel for committee on streets for council reported that all that was necessary to draw the water off widow Donnelly’s out lots was in housework with opening the drain. Committee on plank walk on Cemetery Street for Apple Creek bridge, reported progress in making contract for lumber for same and was in good time to make full report. Mr. Carr reported upon the Buckeye Street strip referred to him for opinion that he has examined the record and cannot find anything to warrant Mr. Gasche being relieved in the manner in which he requested to council. The matter of changing the name of Cunningham Street to Spink Street was taken up but no action taken. It was found that the name of the street in that vicinity Spink, Lynn and See had been intended and established on motion of Mr. Mund see that engineer Brinkerhoff was instructed to report to council that set streets had not been established by ordinance. On the question of laying a plank walk across South Street from the ware shops, Mr. Stark stated that it was ordered and be done as soon as lumber could be secured. In relation to putting up gas post in Henry Street near railroad, Mr. Kauke said that the gas company had no posts and was short of funds. Civil Engineer Brinkerhoff said the measurement of the gutter on South Street by Pat Kennedy was accurate and the board upon which the stone laid had not been prepared for making a good job. On motion of Mr. Kennedy’s bill for laying gutter of 101.73, was accepted and ordered paid.
