By-Law No. 12.

A By-law to provide for drainage work in the Town of Kingsville in the County of Essex and for borrowing on the credit of the municipality, the sum of twelve hundred and eighty dollars for completing the same.

Windsor, 27th August, 1901.

To the Reeve and Municipal Council of the Town of Kingsville.

Gentlemen:- In compliance with instructions received from your honorable body whereby I was instructed to make a survey &c. of a tile drain on Division street in your town (under Section 11 of The Drainage Act 1894), I have made the necessary survey &c. and now report thereon as follows:-

I commenced my survey on Division street at its intersection with Main street, thence I followed Division street southerly to a small creek or swale south of Stanley street in your town.

I find that the said drain is badly needed to give proper drainage to the streets and abutting properties.

I would therefore recommend that said drain be constructed of the form, size &c. as shown on profile and that brick catch basins be built at the points shown on plan so as to give proper drainage to Division and intersecting streets.

My estimate of the cost of the whole of the above work together with all incidental expenses is the sum of $1280.00. Of this amount I have assessed the municipality of Kingsville for benefit and outlet to the streets with the sum of $611.26 and the abutting properties for benefit and outlet with the sum of $668.74, as set forth in the schedule of assessments hereto annexed. [. . .]

All of which is respectfully submitted,

Wm. Newman, C.E.
