To the City I-lecoidor of the City of P.eedsport, Ore.
This is to certify that I have investigated the use

As far as I can determine txom the size of the pipe
and the relative water pressure on the system at Reedsport
at the time of Minimum consumption in the night and the tiine of
llaximum consumption in the day-time hours, I place the minxmum
corruption at 2 to 2-l/2 second feet and the maximum con
sumption at 4 second feet.
In the a"bS3nce of meters on this line this is the
only way I can calculate t-is amount.

Oouncilmen Austin, Lovelace, v/eidner, and /arrelman. Ab
sent, Mayor Johnson and Councilman 3ernhardt.
The minutes oi" the last regular meeting w«ti^ read and ap
proved.
uommunioations:
A letter from the Oregon Stats Highv/ay Commission
requested that the city establish grades by ordinance, for Winches- '
ter Avenue from the west bound3.ry of city limits to the bouthem
Pacii'ic Company railroad track, north and south for one block on ij'irst
Avenue and north for approximately 100 feet on 6th and 7th btreets-
The i'ollov/ing property ovmers avpeared before the Oounoil at this ti;ne
as this matter v/as being considered: Konda Andersen, iu Pranklin,
J.I . U-ibbons, H.O. McCall, H.J. lyster, J.S. Hoberts, llarl K. Chapman,
and hussell J. Hubbard. ringineer ?.?. V/hitmore, re?"'resenting the
State Highv/ay Com:nisi;ion, v/as also present. Careful consideration was
given to the ma^^ submitted by the Highv/ay Department, shov/ing the
proposed grades for the lieedsport section oi the Hoosevelt Highv/ay.
Hone of the property ov/ners-present voiced any objection to the pro
posed grades for Winchester-Avenue, but there \7as objection voiced as
to the deep cuts proposed for oth and 7th Streets. 5]here v;as also
some objection raise/- as to'the proposed cut south from V/inchester on
First Avenue. After considerable discussion the City Recorder v/as
instructed to write to the High\"ay Commission setting out the fact
that there were certain objections to the proposed cuts on ?irst Avenue
and 6th and 7th Streets, but that the grade as proposed for Winchester
Avenue v;as ajceptable.
Heports of Committees:
Councilman Varrelman, Chaiiman of the Street
Committee, called attention'to various complaints which had been made
from time to time as to dangerous condition of certain planked streets,
and especially H and L Streets, and that street extending from the
overhead railroad crossing and joining H and L Streets on the east
side of the track. Aftor considerable discussion, upon motion of
Councilman iVeidner, regularly secondv-d and carried, it v/as ordered
that the street planking on these streets be torn up and bladed.
it v/as'also ord--^red that the v/ater holes along
V/est Railroad Avenue be fill'ed.
Mr. Russell J. Hubbard, of the V/inchester Bay
liurtber Company, called attention to the fact that the dredge fill ^
v/hich is to be made by his company in the near future migh'i: cause some ,
deposit of dredge^material along ./est Railroad Avenue, and asked if ^
there would be any objection, it was felt that there would be no ob- |
jection to this and probably would be some help' to the street. I
A general discussion follov/ea relative to the
n^cesF^i'ty for various traffic *»"egulations. It was decided that an
ordinance should be adopted that would designate Winchester Avonue as
a through street, and it was suggested that the Street Committee look
into the matter of rocommehding certain necessary traffic regulations.
Councilman V/eidner, Chairman of the light Com
mittee, reported that the Council might at any time ask Mr. Watson,
Portrand Manager for the Peoples V/estCoast Hydro-electric CorjDoration,
to come to Reedsnort and confer with the Council relative to rates
f^or street lights. Mr. Watson had si^ified his willingness to do
this at any time at the convonience ox the Council.

i.^ayor Jiucl!: and all Councilmen were present*
Special attention of the Council was first called to the
imediate necessity of the extension and repair of the
water lines and riiains east from 16th street on .Vinchester
Avenue and along //inchester Avenue,near 11th Street* and
it v;as otdered that the necessary extension and repairs
"be made.
i'Jr. Russell J hubbard, oi' th-; .vinchestex- Bay Lumber Company
appeared before the Council, and asiced its co-operation
in connection with th.' v/ater supply for the operation
of a pulp mill on the ./inchester Bay Lum:;er Company mill
site. Ke suggested the feasiciLity of a reservoir construct
ion, at the expense of the raill company,from which the
City would take its supply,as well as the mill, allowing
certain safe guards to assure the City of first call
on the supply; and in consideration of the construction
of the reservoir, the mill company to secure free water*
Although there Y/as nothing of a definite nature to
consider and act on at this time, the members of the Council
expressed themselves aS being desirous to co-operate
to every reasonable extent possible to encourage the con
struction and operation of a pulp mill in Reedsport,
Continued consideration and study was given to the proposed
rate schedules for use of water from the Municipal v/ater
Supply and v.ater i.:ains» Total monthly income,based on the
present ilorth Bend schedules, was estimated and it appeared
that such a basis, although higher than the present rates
ap_.lying for Heedspcrt, was not quite sufficient to bring
the monthly income to an araount which would adequately
provide for bond and bond interests costs, as well as
operation and maintenance expense.
It was finally decided to instruct the Recorder to compute
the income,based upon a 25/& increase on base rates applying
to the present ITorth 3end schedule. Upon motion regularly
made,seconded and carried meeting was continued until
