Pend d’Oreille Review

Aug. 18, 1919 – PASS ORDINANCE

At Monday’s city council meeting, Alderman Gibson introduced ordinance No. 226, to regulate the construction, alteration and repair of sewer and house drains in Sandpoint. Under a suspension of rules it was given its third reading and passed. It provides that $5 be paid for a permit to connect with a sewer and that all owners of property abutting on sewer lines be required to connect within 60 days after passage of the ordinance or within 60 days after the construction of new sewer lines.

FOREST FIRES INCREASING

During the past week there has been a steady expansion of forest fires throughout this district although no fires in Bonner county are presently reckoned beyond control. Fires in the Priest river and Priest lake areas are well in hand and only the Pack river conflagration shows indications of getting again beyond control. The local forestry office has been sending men to the Lost creek fire in the Coeur d’Alene reservation which has been practically untouched by rain since it started almost two months ago.

CITY BREVITIES
