The following communication was read by L.D. Castle and motion made and carried, that it be accepted.
Whereas, the late destructive fire has emphasized the fact that this village was entirely helpless in such an emergency, and
Whereas, such to a state of things is very detrimental to the best interests of the village, seriously retarding its growth, being a great embarrassment to its business men and citizens, keeping the rate of insurance at so high a rare as to be nearly, or quite prohibitive, rendering the employment of capital for trade, manufacturers or improvements of any kind extra hazardous, and
Whereas, there seems to be a feeling amounting almost to a demand that something should be done in the near future to afford protection, therefore
Resolved, that E.R. Clark and H.C.P. Sandman be appointed a special Committee to investigate and report to this board at its next regular meeting, the best plan or plans to be adopted for protection against fire, with the probable cost of said plan or plans including water supply, and be it further
Resolved, that said Committee be requested and instructed to make this investigation thorough and exhaustive, to investigate any and all plans that may come to their knowledge or to which their attention may be called, to the end that this board may have accurate information upon which to base future action, and be it further
Resolved, that said Committee be authorized to expend time and money sufficient to enable them to carry out the full intent and meaning of these resolutions.
Motion was the made and carried that the adjourn until the next regular meeting.
