BOROUGH COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 23 November 1939
The Mayor, Mr. J. Blewman, presided over the Council Meet- ing on Thursday evening last and a large amount of business was transacted.
The Wellington Provincial Mem-' orial Council wrote stating that the amount required for the mem- orial at Petone Beach was £700' short "and the Zone A2 Commit- tee were asked to provide that amount. Upper Hutt's quota was £186.
Councillor Rendle enquired if this amount was to be a voluntary, c ontribution or was it a liability the-.Council could not escape. He stated that the Council had al- ready paid in nearly as much in the first place. If the Committee vi sponsible for the Memorial had foreseen this shortage they should have altered the design to come within the amount collected. I would like to-know, concluded Mr. Rendle, if the Council had the right to refuse, or was it a de-, finite liability we could not es- cape.
The Mayor stated that he at- tended the meeting of Zone A2. and this item of £700 came u...
