Cr Longmuir Dissatisfied Cr Longmuir said 3 months had elapsed since the new work referred to had been ordered. Why had it not been done at once ?

Cr Alden Reviewes Position [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 22 April 1921
Cr Alden Reviewes Position Cr Alden said that time was rolling on, and his riding had still a lot of work. unfinished.. They had been banging back for the financial posi- tion to improve, but things were very little better now. As far as he could ascertain from the balance sheet the council's yearly income from rates was £4057. Out of that &nbsp; £1981 was absorbed in domestic ex- pendlture leaving £2076. There was &nbsp; a yearly liability of £I099 to the C.R.B., leaving £976 to be expended on general work. He found that the result was that they had a bebit of £1761 on one year's operations. Cr Alden then analysed the position in the varlous ridings. He found that they all made a debit on the year's operations with the exception of Seaford. Cr Latham-That is because we could not get any work done in our riding. Cr Alden said the Frankston rid- ing for the year had over expended to an amount of more than £1000. Cr Oates-We have improved our position since last year.....

SGENERAL .NOTES. Unless he overcomes the. debarring rule by. sleeping four' nights weekly in the district, the valuable aservices of "Dutchy" Wall will' be lost to the R:ed :and Blacks this 'coming season. His absence' would be keenly-folt. "I am sorry Wall comes under this rule," said one of the prominent officials of the Frankston Club, "for he'is a fine little fellow, who plays for the love of the game, and always gives his best." Testimonies such', as this one are,; of course, 'very nice,, but the ringsiders would rather' .have. Mr. Wall's services than our friend's sym pathies. It was rumoured that last year's skipper, Mr. H. '. McCulloch, would not be playing this season, but the writer was,assured on Saturday by one who 'ought to know. that "Mac will play alright." By the way, his brother, who formerly played with Geelong, but who is now residing at Seaford, will don the Red and Black jersey this season.
