The city engineer  explained that earlier in the spring,  he had a large list of streets prepared  for improvement but these exceeded  the year's appropriation for - street  .work which was cut to .$85,0C0. Consequently, having to curtail his original programme, Mr. Fellowes explained that he had selected .-a number;*>f  leading streets in each, ward, the -improvement or surfacing - of which  would do the greatest benefit to that  particular district. These be recommended to be passed so that the  work could be got in hand at once.  The total amount involved in the  entire list for hard-surfacing ■ is  $71,927, while the estipate for levelling and trimming up the streets to-  take- the hard-surfacing is approxi  mately $6,703.60, making a total for  this road work of $78,630. The engineer's recommendation was approved and the work authorized to be  proceeded with.  ..'lif   if  i\V,-. C",F.
