THE FORBES MUNICIPALITY PROPOSED CURTAILMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 9 February 1912

THE FORBES MUNICIPALITY PROPOSED CURTAILMENT. The Forbes municipality has an area of fifty square miles, aiid included in that area are many industrialists whose mode of life and vocation are truly rural. Some of them live so far away from the centre of the town that they derive no benefit from the services which the Muni cipal Council control, such as water and gas, whilst at the same time they are subject to taxation which a dweller in the town is not called upon to pay. It is not unreasonable, therefore, that such persons should seek to have their holdings placed under the civic control of the Shire Council, and some strong reasons are "advanced in a petition presented to the Municipal Council on Tuesday evening, and "which aldermen will discuss at the next meeting of the Council. The petition is signed by W. H. R. Stitifc, C.. Nicolas, M. I. Smith, and 33 other ratepayers, and it sets out, inter alia, the following reasons- for the request Hhat the municipality of Forbes curtail...
