Col. Haskins, from the Commissioners of Streets, reported in favor of giving William Ready the contract for indexing and numbering the streets, in accordance with the plan of the City Engineer.
Mr. Scott opposed the report, first, because he did not know that the Council had the right to compel citizens to put numbers on their houses — and, second, because a citizen of Richmond, who desired to propose for the work, had been denied the privilege of doing so.
Mr. Denton thought Mr. Ready was entitled to the contract, and that the Council should give it to him, if it had the right to require citizens to number their houses.
After further discussion, on motion of Mr. Hill, the report was laid on the table.
On motion of Col. Haskins, permission was granted to C. B. Lipscomb to erect a temporary staging over Dock street, for unloading coal vessels.
On motion of Col. Haskins, the sum of $325 was appropriated for reducing and putting Leigh street in order, between
