Carried. Mr. Oesterlin, from the committee on public buildings presented the following report, which was, on motion, accepted and adopted and ordered printed with the proceedings. , To the Honorable, the Board of Supervisors, of the County of Washtenaw : Gentlemen : - Your committee on public buildings, beg leave to respectfully report, that at a meeting of your said committee, held at the court ïiouse, on the first day of February, 1893, we examined the roof of the court house and found it necestary to cause extensive repairs thereto to be made. The flat tin part was found to be full of small holes and leaking badly, doing damagc to the frame work and greatly injuring the ceiliugs. After full examination we engaged Charles Grossman of Grossman & Schlenker, to repair the same and put the same in thoroughly good condition, which was done at a cost of $311.01. At which meeting we also found on inspection, that the cooking-range at the jail was badly burned and wholly useless tor which the same is used, and your committee thought it prudent to purchase a new range, which was ordered Erom Eberbach & Sons at an expense of $35.00, the old range and old gasoline stove being traded toward such new range. Your committee also found, that the return pipes on the boiler in the court house from some cause were leaking badly, and that water was kept in the boiler with great difficulty ; the pipes are laid under the cement bottom of the court house and it was a work of considerable trouble to flnd the broken pipe, the cement covering having to be cut in many places. It was also found that a new pump had to bé procured for the court house boiler - for all of triis work and other needful plumbing at the court house, done by Hutzel & Co., your committee have expended the sum of $96.74. For plumbing and gas fitting at the jail the sum of $33.18 has been expended. On account of the storms of last winter, and trom other causes, many of the glasses in the court house have been broken, and your comtnittee have been compelled to lay out and expend the sum of $110.09 for new window glasses and their setting at the court house, and for the saine purpose at the jail the sum of $18.38, the work and material having been done and furnished by William Herz, esq., and the sum of $2.20 for painting screens, doors and windows at the jail. The document book and records at the treasurer's office have accumulated to such an extent that a new file case was found to be a necessity and one was ordered f rom Rauschenberger & Co., for the sum of $85.00. At the last session of your Honorable Board the purchase of the Reports of the Supreme court of the United States was ordered and your committee found tbat no proper use of the books could be made without a suitable book-case, the book-case in the court room was full without it auda new book-case was purchased for the sum of $30. Your committee have expended the surn of $5.00 for the repair to tables in the court house - one in the probate office and one in the treasurer's office and one at the jail for the sum of $3.00. Your committee have had great trouble with the boiler in the court house, either the boiler is old and considerably worn or else the person in charge is not sufficiently competent to properly manage the same, the grates were worn or burnt out and mach and frequent repair were needed to proporly heat the court house, and your committee have been compelled to pay out for all such purpose duriug the year to Lawrence Sutter the sum of $108.43, which sum represents all labor and material. The chimnev at the west end of the court house in the Register of Deeds and Treasurer's offices have not properly answered the purpose fora long time, especially In stormy weather, and vour committee was advised tl) at they could be remedied at a small expense by the use of the "Star Chimney Top," after a trial which proved satisfactory your committee purchased one for each of said offices at a total expense of $21.00. Your committee thought it prudent to maintain the shade trees in the court house square. Some trees were dead and otliers had been removed - the dead tiees were ordered cut and young trees planted in their stead, so that the yard is now properly planted with thrifty ti ees. This was done at an expense of $18.75. Your committee on inspection found tnuch of the tile flooring of the court house in bad repair and deemed it advisable to cause the saine to be properly relaid and repaired. The work was done by JohnfBaumgardner at au expense of $56.50. Theglass in the sky-light in the dome of the court house had long been broken, and your committee thought it prudent to seal the same with tnatched sealing, making it water-tight, which was done at an expense of $10.05. Your committee constructed a raised platform for the probate office', and that and other carpenter work done about the court house cost the sum of $:r. .":;. The repairs in Aun street in front of the county jail consisting of Inving an IS inch sewer pipe in the gutter which was a needful improverrrent, was done at an expense of $76. 5(1, as follows: For sewer pipe the sum of $66.94, and for labor, the sum of $9.62. Then was paid to Grossman & Schlen! ker for 120 tin lile boxes for use in the various county offices the sum of $06.00.

The whole amount paid during the past year and since your cornmittee was appointed, for repairs atttie court house and jail and fixtures thereto, is the mum ef $1,300.93. ' All of the work in extending the lawn at the county jail was done by prisoners without cost to the county. The system of lighting the basement of the court house with electricity proved insufficient, the lightfrequently being out for days at a time, and other arrangements had to be made, so your committee concluded to contract with the Anñ Arbor Gas Companytoput in gas fixtui-es and to furnish gas at $1.25 per thousand feet, since which time the basement lias been properly lighted. All of the aforesaid work and repairs has been done under the personal supervisión of the chairman of your committee, and the time which your committee had devoted to such work and for which pay is expected is as follows : EugeneOesterliu,35 days at #3 per day__ $105 00 M.
