Town Board Gets Ready to Act

The Town Board Getting Ready to Act.

The members of the Town Board have taken under advisement a plan to grade the south side of Elm street from the Windsor Hotel to the railroad tracks and thus do away with the steps just east of Bosley’s grain office. Should this be done, Mr. Bosley’s scales would have to be moved, as they extend into the street. This bit of enterprise on the part of the Town Board is very commendable and the members should be encouraged in every way possible by all the loyal citizens of our little city. The grading of that portion of Elm street and lowering the walk will vastly improve the appearance of our town. And then, too, those dangerous steps, which have been a menace to life and limb for twenty years past, will be done away with. Let the grading be done, and the sooner the better.
