SIX.MONTHLY MEETING OF PUBLIC AND COUNCIL MAYOR STANDS UP TO CRITICISM [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 12 September 1940

SIX.MONTHLY MEETING OF PUBLIC AND COUNCIL

MAYOR STANDS UP TO CRITICISM

. The public meeting called by the Council on Friday evening last was very poorly atended, only 12 people - being present, plus the Mayor and the Councillors. After reading the advertisement calling, the meeting Mr. _J. Blewman, Mayor, asked! those present for ques- tions on -matters for the welfare of the Borpugn. Mr. C. Price inquired if it were a fact the Council had sold an old Fire Truck for the paltry sum of £7, yet on the balance sheet of 1939 the same truck was valued at £50. Surely, ■ stated Mr. Price, the Council could have got a better price than £7. The Mayor stated that the truck was bought from Petone- some years ago, and as it only ran six miles to the gallon the Council decided to dis- pose of it" at the highest price pos- sible. There was one thing the peo- ple must not lose sight of —and that was that the avearge truck depreciat- edYup_ to £50 a year. One, firm the . Council approach...

SILVERSTREAM FREE BUS SERVICE [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 12 September 1940

SILVERSTREAM FREE BUS SERVICE

A Free Bus Service on Friday nights to and from Silverstream for the pur- pose of conveying residents to Upper Hutt for the late shopping night is to commence on FRIDAY, 13th Septem- ber.' This project is being undertaken by the Upper Hutt and District Retailers' Association, and on its success hinges the possibility of a daily service. .As.'.well as the difficulty of reidents using their cars for shopping excur- sions due to petrol , restrictions and the similar difficulties experienced by traders, in. distributing goods to out- lying districts, it ■ has always been acknowledged that an independent passenger service from the lower end of the Borough to the shopping centre has been much needed. This Bus will leave St. Pat's corner atYSilverstream at 7 p.m. and leave Upper Hutt at 9 p.m. for the return trip. As. none of the existing services, operate on this route during these hours, a large gap in the schedule, will be closed and give shoppers an ...
