Safety Committee had <br /> worked out quite a large schedule for the safety of the school children.

He said one <br /> place in particular they had thought of was at Patterson Schoibl grounds. He <br /> said it was their recommendation that the Bicycle Ordinance should be enforced <br /> as thoroughly as possible.

I <br /> In the absence of Chairman Farrington, Councilman Hawn of the Finance <br /> Committee reported regarding the bills for the month of November. Mr. Hawn said <br /> the bills had not been o,k'd but that it would probably be well for the Council <br /> to order the payment of the bills after they had been G.k'd by the Finance <br /> Committee. Motion was made and seconded that the Council authorize the payment <br /> of the bills after they had been properly passed by the Finance Committee, and on <br /> roll call all councilmen present voted aye.
