Electric Light Near
Council Pushes Plans for the Erection of plant and Recommends Purchase of Water Works.
That Seaside Heights will have one of the most up-to-date electric light plants in the country before the season opens was promised by the members of Council at their meeting on Wednesday. Plans were made to expedite the erection of the new electric light plant but before building can be begun a special election must be held to vote on the taking over by the Borough of the water plant of the Peninsula Water Company.
Everyone is agreed that the Borough should own its own water supply as well as it s electric light plant and other public utilities. The electric light plant will be built on a part of the ground of the water plant and thus save the cost of purchasing ground. Both the water plant and the electric light plant can be operated in conjunction and at considerable saving to the Borough and what saves the Borough money is also a saving to the taxpayers. Every property owner should see to it that the vote in favor of taking over the water plant is unanimous. By taking over the water plant the ground for the electric light plant can be secured without cost and work on the electric light plant can be started the morning after the voters decide to buy the water plant. Both the water plant and the electric light plant will be two of the Borough’s greatest assets.
At the council meeting several resolutions were adopted which are printed an another page.
