Inside rate of two taxes eiii-.h year, but getting a very minimum for their taxes, so It appeared.- ' : • Warden Brophy stated 'that all the houses on the street tV>uld be taken care of, not a single instance us the application at the meeting. The warden alleged, and it-was so voted, that Borough Engineer Curtlss should secure waivers from all residents of the street, and prepare plans showing grade lines and other pertinent factors there preparatory to the acceptance of the street by the town. Warden 1 Brophy pointed out that in the very near future he hoped the necessary legislation would be enacted here whereby the borough will have .tight control over all -eal estate developments within the confines of the borough. In that way situations like Golden Hill street extension and several others that have taken place in recent years in Naugaluck cannot be formulated he stated. Thus persons who buy lots will be accorded a maximum of protection before any money is invested, it was pointed out. Apparently the warden waa referring to a zoning ordinance whereby all realty activities will be under olllcial scrutiny at all times, and streets cannot bo left for the borough to improve, in some cases years after the development was ilrst opened Wlliam Kamunsky of Spring street appeared before the board to tell of speeding in the area of Porter road, near his home.

In view ol' I ho fact that Cherry street is quite narrow, is heavily traveled anyway and also has a school on it, it was felt that the addition of t-hc --rucks was contributing toward a very serious traffic silu.'itior.. The burgess nnd Burgess Anderson also pointed out that speeding on Cherry street is also now a serious rr.atler. The hoard finally Spring street man stated that two : " dccitlcd Lo no (ify the Naugatuck children huve been struck by autos | Chemic .,| a!ld Ull _. synthetic plants in the past few years and there thut he is fearful of other tragedies if motorists are not cut down in their speeding. Burgess Klimu- sewski declared that he had called the attention of the police department t'o the situation some time ago, but that the police patrol, naturally cannot stay long enough in that one .area to wipe out the practice. The matter was turned over to Chief of Police John Gorm- Icy fo: 1 interpretation, Maps of the Sheffield Lnne-Woos- ter street sewer were also on display at the board meeting and some discussion was heard relative Character / PLACE-SETTINGS AVERAGE ABOUT $23 00 • • I NCI U DIN 0 10% F IP I HAL TAX III American fiimily' the dining-room, social hc.irt of every home, Gorhiun products arc conversation!*] pieces —tlio cln-.*ic gift nt good-family weddings; the preferred cup at christenings, the chief treasure handed down fro in mother to daughter. JIWILMS SILVERSMITHS SINCE IfOV 68 BANK STREET 10 the baroujrh doing the work itself or contracting for it. The project is one of the mosi extensive and costly of its kind ever contemplated locally, and the warden stated that at least 400 feet of the sewer ditch was located in such a way that the work would^ have to .be done by hand. Mary Granica, it-was stated, will not give the -borough pel-mission to carry the sewer lines through her property, although it was explained that she was offered free assessment for this privilege. Michael Nolan and the State of Con- nccliciit, two of the other property owners whose property will alsa be crossed by the sewer lines, have agreed to co-operate, it was stated. The failure fo secure the right of way through the Grtn- ca property will not block • the sewer exlension, Warden Brophy pointed out. although this fact will add more work to the project. It was. voted to rescind a recent vote of the board in which John VVilktis of Shattuck Road was ap- aoinlcd Naugatuck garbage col- cctor at a salary of $6,000.00 per year. The collector is Frank E. Wilkas and the salary and all other conditions arc the same as previously'. ' Burgess J, Francis Cullen wrought up the matter of minor itreet repairs or, Cherry street ex- ension in connecl.ion with points vhere work has been done recently in the street. The matter was referred to the street department. Burgesses Ploski and Klimasewski stated thai there is quite a bit of speeding on Spring street that endangers childi-cn crossing that street, near Diamond street. It was voted lo have cross walks act up from Diamond street across Spring street in an effort to alleviate an admittedly dangerous condition, John Simmons of Lewis street, on. the motion of Burgess J. Rudolph Anderson was given permission to connect into a sanitary sewer near that point, with a charge of $30 to be levied for rear house privilege. • • • Burgess Anderson • also inquired about sidewalks on the north end of Gorman street, on the -west aide of the street, but was informed that waivers from other property owners was necessary before this work could be accomplished. Warden Brophy, when nskcd by Burgess Anderson about the possibility of a public dump here stated that he had nothing to report on this subject, Burgess Anderson stated that with winter coming on the hauling of refuse to Waterbury would become more and more of a tusk to Naugatuck. truckmen. The warden pointed out that the Schlldgen property on the East Waterbury road was still open provided the borough diverted a jrook, to guard against the possi- jility of water contamination! Buress Klimascwski declared that a dump at that point would no doubt cause a great furore among property owners who have built new homes along that section of Prospect street. Warden Brophy and Burgess Anderson who are both, on the dump site committee exchanged a few words about another dump site they have in mind but did not talk loud enough for the spectators to find out just where this new site was located. Burgess Cullen brought -out the fact that many heavy trucks are now using Cherry street to make deliveries to the Naugatuck Chemical and the Synthetic rubber of its desire to have the '..rucks use Elm siren! in reaching the factories. If the practice is not discontinued, legislation will be enacted to keep thu heavy trucks off the thoroughfare. The mailer of the .speeding on Cherry street was referred to Chief Gormley for solulion. Maps of the hydrant locations on the Glenridge Estates development off Park avenue, also were exhibited at the meeting and the pioblem of the inside and outside district jus it relates to the hydrants, was di'opped squarely in !hc laps of the Borough Fathers. Tentative points were indicated on the map for tho location of hydrants, but since some of- theso spots wore in the outside district, the matter soon reached an impasse. Burgess Andrew O'Tcole almost solved the problem by moving the location of hydrant points to ihe very end of the inside district, but even with this interpretation, in some cases it wo.s l.COO feet from the end of the outside dislrict to a hydrant. Fire hydrants are already located and those on Chestnut street not be disturbed. Fire Chief John J. Shorid.-.n was asked for his opinion on tho situation and pointed out I hat the dan- i gers of a conflagration in u development of wooden houses built so close together was not to bo taker, lightly. He pointed out ilia-: fire underwriters desired hydrants lo be not more than 3(iO feet apart if possible, but that hn personally could noi agree to hydrants more than 500 feet apart at a maximum. Chief Sheridan also stated thai persons buying in a development of this nature should know exactly what they ore get- ling in the iine of fire protection and all other city conveniences and improvements. ' Tho Hydrant Committee of Warden Brophy. and Burgesses Cullen and Anderson finally decided to visit the development on Sunday morning and bring in a recommendation to the next board meeting on Ihe situation.
