OUT OF THE PAST

Newark Post - - OUT OF THE PAST -

Ed­i­tor’s note: Vol­un­teers at the Pen­cader Her­itage Mu­seum have been dig­i­tiz­ing old Ne­wark City Coun­cil meet­ing min­utes. They share ex­cerpts with Ne­wark Post read­ers in a weekly col­umn.

July-Septem­ber 1941: Mr. McCreight of West Park Place of­fered to lay all the pip­ing if he was per­mit­ted to con­nect to town wa­ter lines, but his re­quest was de­nied.

The so­lic­i­tor was in­structed to draw up an or­di­nance con­form­ing to state law con­cern­ing Sun­day op­er­a­tion of movies and other amuse­ments in re­sponse to a pe­ti­tion from some cit­i­zens. The town was still hold­ing monthly cleanup days.

Work to ex­tend wa­ter and storm sewer ser­vice and grade the street on Manns Av­enue was ap­proved, as were im­prove­ments to North and Wil­bur streets and Creek Road. Thomp­son Lane would be im­proved if half the cost was borne by the Ne­wark Post, which was housed there.

Res­i­dents of New, Cen­ter and Lin­den streets protested the build­ing of a milk plant on New Street by Mr. E. F. Richards. Coun­cil voted to ta­ble the re­quest tem­po­rar­ily, and the town so­lic­i­tor said no or­di­nance would be vi­o­lated by the milk plant.

Oc­to­ber 1936: The town en­gi­neer’s pro­posal for adding a dou­ble garage ad­di­tion to the present garage on East Main Street for hous­ing of new elec­tric depart­ment truck and stor­age was ap­proved. It was rec­om­mended that fire com­pany and town of­fi­cials draw up fire safety reg­u­la­tions and have an or­di­nance writ­ten to cover them. E. F. Richards would get his milk plant per­mit if plans were ap­proved by en­gi­neer.

Novem­ber 1941: An ad­di­tional storm sewer was ap­proved be­tween East Park Place and Kells Av­enue. A new deep-well pump was pur­chased for $662.
