Municipality of Puslinch

June 4th 1934.

 

The Puslinch Municipal Council met in regular session, today, at 2 o’ clock p.m.  All of the members, with the exception of Geo. McGill, were present, the Reeve presiding.  The minutes of the May meeting were read and adopted as read, on motion of Councillors Crow and Holm.

 

The contracts for the crushing of stone and gravelling of the township roads were the main items before the Council. 

 

The contract, for 1,000 yards of crushed gravel from the pit on the County road or Murray’s Hill, was let to A. J. Huether at 59¾ cents per yard and 9½ per yard per mile over five miles.  The contract, for 1,000 yards of pit run, or screening if necessary, from the pit on the 1st Concession, west of Puslinch, was let to A. J. Huether at 44 cents per yard and 9 cents per yard per mile over five miles.

 

The contract for 300 yards from Christie Quarry was let to Geo. Schultz at 21 cents per yard and 8 cents per yard per mile over 5 miles.  The contract for 300 yards from Peter Angus’ pit was let to Geo. Schultz at 34 cents per yard.

 

A delegation asked the Council to take some action in regard to the laying off of the local men and the hiring of men from the City of Guelph for the filling in of the ditches on the highway in this township.  Also, it was reported that certain employees were receiving a large pension, and the delegation thought that if this was to be a relief job, then pensioners should be barred.

 

 

 

 

 

Mr. Cockburn asked for an investigation into the collection of taxes at the Bank of Toronto, at Morriston.  Several residents have paid their taxes at the bank, but the Collector has never been notified by the bank.

 

1.

Moved by Walter Holm, seconded by Wm. Crow, that a bylaw, adjusting the salary of the Road Superintendent, be read a first and second time.

 

2.

Moved by Duncan McDonald, seconded by Walter Holm, that the bylaw, adjusting the salary of the Road Superintendent, be read a third time, passed, and numbered.
