CITY COUNCIL ENQUIRY. Why the Delay? [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 November 1913

?'?;' ',', CITY COUNCIL ENQUIRY. . - ; ? ?? Why the Delay? \\ hue the policy ,of rush never pays, procrastina tion is equally unsatisfactory. It is in the latter respect that the Sydney City Council seems at fault in de'alin'g with the Lord' Mayor's' statements of civic chaos. A great deal of haggling has ensued as to the method of conducting the enquiry ''Upon which, outwardly at all events, every aldefma'n seeius agreed. Some want the enquiry, conducted from', within, while others are of opinion that out side' experts should be asked to report.: Adjourn have any enquiry at all, have taken place. The latest is for the purpose of discovering whether the council's coffers can stand the tremendous strain of £150 to cover the cost. Whether a more absurd level of precaution can be reached, or a better ex ample of procrastination produced, remains to be seen. Meanwhile, aldermen assume the air of re formers, and if the Lord' Mayor and a few others do not keep the subject alive we are cer...

MINISTER GRIFFITH SUMMED UP. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 November 1913

MINISTER GRIFFITH SUMMED UP. It can never be forgotten of Minister Griffith that he attempted to impair the efficiency of Local Gov ernment by wrecking the status of Local Govern ment engineers, even though his attempt signally i ailed. Whenever his administration calls for review this one fact bobs up and hits one, as it were, and it is questionable whether Local Government authorities at least, will ever either forget or forgive. In his alleged solicitude for. the interests of shires he raised the minimum from £8000 to £0000. But that his 'sympathy' was misplaced was proved by the almost unanimous refusal of the councils to take the retrograde step of dispensing with qualified engineering service, and installing the advanced ganger and other inepts. The Minister, however, did splendid service in discouraging under-rating. He is accused of doing this out of financial necessity. But we can say that his discouragement was directed at a time when money was flush. In this attitude he w...

A WORD TO KATOOMBA. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 November 1913

A. WORD TO KATOOMBA. Under a backward Local Government Act. Katoomba (N.S.W.) being a municipality, need not employ a permanent qualified engineer, unless the common sense of its aldermen dictate otherwise. Legally, however, the council is immune from the compulsion generally applied to shires. But Katoomba is a district in the developing stage, with ample scope for' fine engineering service. The veriest novice can realise this at a superficial fiance, and that the council holds a similar opinion is suggested by '-a -recent discussion. This was inspired by the convinced conclusion that engineer ing advice of some character was necessary, if the splendid opportunities- of the famous tourist centre were to be converted to the best practical use. With a view to meeting the necessity, overtures, we believe, were made to a qualified engineer of a neighboring shire, but the council made the fatal mistake of endeavoring to buy brains cheaply. Consequently the services of that engineer were...

BUILDING "RESTRICTIONS." [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 November 1913

? * — . ? BUILDING 'RESTRICTIONS.' A house agent, giving evidence before the Cost of Living Commission, declared in effect that building was restricted owing to the exacting laAvs of muni cipal councils. He gave as an example the demand for a certain frontage. This opens the question as to Avhether a necessity can be termed a restriction. The councils are Avise in providing for ample space for a house, otherwise a heap of narroAV-fronted, crowded humpies Avould soon spring up in their midst, and the nucleus of slums be established. While councils have the good sense to realise that in n COlintrv of wirip ^nru-f--; i-nncrpsh'nn r-f anv r1-»cffir-_ tion cannot be condoned by any circumstances, so surely will they serve the people well. Councils Avill find the newly-formed Town Planning Asso ciation of service to them in this connection. The Association aims at giA-ing the children a show by advocating ample building space to eA'ery resi dence.

The Government Avere requested to sta tion a man with a flag to warn pedestrians of the danger existing from overhanging cranes.

The Lord Mayor does not hold with this official vieAV, but a detail like this does not trouble the Government.

UNDER-RATING. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 November 1913

UNDER-RATING. The General Secretary, in his report to the recent Victorian conference, referred to under-rating, by councils and 'its effects. Apropos of ii'if 'statements, the following paragraph from the Victorian press is interesting: — 'At the Kyneton Shire Council meeting on Satur day motions were submitted by Councillor Knight (Tylden Riding), and Councillor Spain (Kyneton Riding), for a shilling rate and an eighteen-penny rate respectively. The shilling rate was agreed to by eleven votes to one. Three councillors, who were understood to be in favor of the higher rate, were not present. Several councillors admitted the ne cessity for the extra sixpence, owing to the bad state of the roads, but Councillor Knight remarked. Two former councillors who advocated eighteenpence were sent to the 'right about,' and let any Tylden Riding councillor advocate it now, and he'll see what position he'll be in. We know the roads are bad, but we're prepared to put up with it as long as we have...

The Canberra Plans Described. [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Local Government Journal — 17 November 1913

The Canberra Plans Described. Mr. Griffin, noting the relations of the salient points in the topography, observed a curious series of coincidences. The snow-capped mountain peak Bimberi, thirty miles away to the south-west, is in alignment with the conical peak of Ainslie, which is at the north-east corner of the city's site and a most prominent and striking feature of the landscape. And also in alignment with these two mountains is Kurraionsr. -which is the highest point within the prescribed city limits, and Camp Hill, which is ad jacent and .somewhat below. The latter drops in terraces to the river. Mr. Griffin accepted these features as establishing the natural axis upon which should be developed the spectacular features of the city.- ? ??- Upon Kurrajong he places the Capitol building, ihe executive palace and the adjoining residences of the Premier and Governor-General,'- the. lovely forested slopes of this hill being retained as' a' park.' On Camp Hill, some ninety feet below...
