To the Common Council: The Board of Public Works beg leave to submit the following report of its doing in the matter of bids for the construction of a stone culvert across ■creek on Fifth street (Second ward). The Board caused notice of the city's wants to be published in the Ann Arbor Argus, and also distributed said notice aniong local contractors; and as a resíilt, on the day set for closing such offer, had three bids as follows: John Mahlke, furnishing all labor and material $490. Koch Bros., furnishing all labor and material, $386; furnishing all labor and material except stone, $321. C. Schaffer & Son, furnishing all labor and material, SS61; furnishing all labor and material excepting stone, $566. All things considered, we recomroend that the bid of Koch Bros. be accepted, and that a contract be made with said Koch Bros. at contract price of $385. The Board of Public Works recommends and asks for the following appropriations, to wit: $200 for the grading of Broadway at the north end, and $100 for the gradingof Prospect street; also $90 be appropriated to paint the bridge over the Michigan Central railroad tracks, as the painting of said bridge bas become very necessary. liy order or the iioara ot rubuc Works. AVilliam J. Miller, Clerk. That part asking for appropriations ■referred to the Street Committee. To the Common Council: The Board of Public Works, to whom was entrusted the supervisión of the construction of sewers, would respectfully report progress to the Council. In purSuant of the resolution of the Council, the Board on Thursday last closed a contract with the ühio Valley Fire Clay Corupany for the purchase of sewer pipe, to be shipped in such quantities as the Board of Public Works desTres. It is believed that a quantity of the larger sized pipe is already on the road. At our last meeting 200 feet of 24 inch cast iron pipe were authomed to be purchased by Mr. Schuh and the City Engineer at 921.70 net per ton, f. o. b cars at Ann Arbor, Michigan, from theLake Shore Foundvy, of Cleveland. Ohio. The Board on August 28th started the City Engineer rnaking the necessary survey for the sewer. They engaged Williatn Roseneraus as assistant engineer at $2.75 per day. The Board fixed the compensation of the City Engineer, during the construction of the main sewer, at $150 per month, which salary the Council is asked to It is believed that the work of putting in the main sewer will take three or four mouths. It now seeuis probable that the Board will 'je able to begin the ■werk of construction of the main sewer by September llth. Street Commissioner Sutherland, City Engineer Key and Prof. C. E. Green, as Consulting engineer, will be given charge of the construction. By order of the Board of Public Works. Williaji J. Miiler, Clerk. Aid. O'Mara moved that the report be aecepted and adopted.
