TARRING THE ROADS
In consequence of road watering being stopped, the Urban Council has some £10 in hand, and it has been decided to expend it giving coatings of boiling tar to certain portions of the town, viz., Broad-street, High-street and Whiteman's Green. The Surveyor has found that dressing the road with tar does away with the dust nuisance, for which motor-cars are largely responsible. His plan is to sweep the road, then place the tar upon it, and next the road sweepings.
The cost works out at 1 1/2 per yard super.
