The second reading by sections of an ordinance entitled " An Ordinance relative to the Use of Street Railway Cars by the Public." M'ÜKRÏ. To the Hon. Common Councü of the City of Ann Arbor, Mich.: Your Committee on Streets has had tne following recommendations from the Board of Public works under consideration: To appropriate $350 for a enlvert on Hill street; $35(1 for a culvert on Fifth street; $450 for a culvert on Felch street; $350 for coping on South University avenue and for tile culvert on Washtenaw avenue. In regard to the culverts we think tnat inasmuch as the streets are little frequented and a small outlay for planks and timber would put them in as good a condition as new, it is not advisable at this time to undertake the construcción of entirely new culverts. The coping on South University avenue is a-matter which may be deferred until next year to advantage, owingto a press of more necessarv improvements claiming immediate attention. As regards the bridges No. 2 and No. 3, we recommend that No. 2 be repaired with timber as suggested by the Board of Public Works, and that an estímate of the cost of a substantial iron bridge be submitted for No. 3. The tile culvert on Washtenaw avenue is unnecessary for the present, as the old one will last another year. E. G. Mans, Walter L. Taylob, A. P. FjEBGTJSON.' Aid.
