Auc­tion­eer AD­DI­TION TO MU­NIC­I­PAL BUILD­ING The Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Rock Is­land has had plans and spec­i­fi­ca­tions drawn for a 24x45 foot ad­di­tion to the present mu­nic­i­pal build­ing, at the cor­ner of Wy­man and Church streets. The new ad­di­tion will be one story high, with a 30 ft. hose tower. A room 16x24 feet will be pro­vided for the fire­fight­ing ap­pli­ances. This room abuts the coun­cil room with a door open­ing into it. The bal­ance of the build­ing is to be used for stor­ing the tools used by the street and side­walk depart­ment. When the ad­di­tion is com­pleted and the grounds graded the vil­lage plant will be quite ef­fi­cient and pre­sentable. The fire­men will use the coun­cil room for their gath­er­ings. BALL-PLAY­ING FOR­BID­DEN ON ANY MU­NIC­I­PAL STREET Ball-play­ing on the streets of Rock Is­land was out­lawed at the May meet­ing of the coun­cil, Mon­day night. A num­ber of com­plaints had been re­ceived by mem­bers, com­plaints ob­ject­ing, not only to ball-play­ing, but to tres­pass­ing upon pri­vate property and cre­at­ing dis­tur­bance through shout­ing and loud talk. It was ap­par­ent that the coun­cil re­al­ized a re­spon­si­bil­ity, and in the end a res­o­lu­tion was passed for­bid­ding ball-play­ing on any street in the mu­nic­i­pal­ity. An­other mat­ter which claimed at­ten­tion of the coun­cil was that of tax ar­rears. The coun­cil has been bor­row­ing money to meet cur­rent ex­penses, while taxes re­main un­paid. By res­o­lu­tion the sec­re­tary-trea­surer was au­tho­rized to take the nec­es­sary steps for the collection of all such ar­rears.
