Notes of the Week [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 11 April 1885
Notes oi tin 'Week- I \t the last meeting of the Leichhardt Council, 'it was resolved that Carlisle street bo moi.illed and ballad, d at a probable cost of £500. Alderuian Neale thereupon urged that works of such ma .nitude should bo done by con tract and not by day labour. It was time, lie said, to economise the expendi ture. Alderman Hearn pointed out that contracts were sometimes taken by persons a hundred miles away, who had no interest in tho place and did not spend their money in it; whereas many ot the day labourers had little properties of their own and the money the re ceived wont for the improvement of tho district. . The Leichhardt Council has resolved to purchase a block of land as a site for a Town Hall. It is at tho corner of Marion and Norton streets and has a frontage of 246 feet by a depth of 185 feet. The position is central.. The current estimates' contain an item of I £6,600 for new Council Chambers. I
