100 YEARS AGO
A minute of a meeting of the Lighting, Cleansing and Public Health Committee bore that it was agreed to communicate with the Ayr Corporation with reference to the lighting of the tramway poles.
With reference to the town lighting, Bailie Davidson moved that the lighting be increased as far as might be allowed by the police authorities and Provost Cochrane seconded. Councillor Weir moved that the lighting be the same as last year and Cllr Fleming seconded. After a 3- 3 vote the convenor’s casting vote was in favour of the amendment.
