The Council asked to dig deeper
The Water Committee recommends that in order to directly interest the men employed in the work of the South Reservoir in maintaining the production of cuttings at the highest possible rate, it be authorized to pay the employees concerned a bonus at the rate of 1 shilling 6 pence per man per 100 meters for each 100 meters of material excavated in excess of 400 meters per day, based on the daily average over six-day periods.
How Opoho Rd Got Its Curve
It is understood that the City Engineer has reported on grades in connection with the proposed streetcar extension to Opoho, and is not advocating either of the two suggested routes. The objection is thought to be due to the stiffness of the notes. The direct route is rated 1 out of 5, and the other, via cemetery road, is 1 out of 9. Apparently the only way to get an easier rating is to do a wide circuit through the belt and that would be a very costly undertaking.
The new high-end premises of Neills
This will come as no surprise to MM customers. Hugh and GK Neill, opticians and scientific instrument dealers, to learn that ever-growing business relationships have forced the move to larger premises. The building now occupied by MM. Neill is on the corner of St Andrew and George streets, familiar to Dunedinites as a grocery store since the early days of settlement. His appearance is now altered beyond recognition. The beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows now effectively showcase scientific instruments and optician’s wares, and the beautiful display achieved is sure to impress any passers-by.
