The Texas Lake Ice Co. [pictured] asked that the City water main be sapped to supply water to their offices and warehouse. The Finance Committee approved payment of $10 to Chief Capilano for pasturage related to the Water Works, but turned down the School Board’s request for an additional $1000 to make repairs to and add drainage around the Mount Pleasant School. The Committee considered a charge of $100.00 by the Brockton Point Athletic Association for Canada Day festivities to be excessive. Alderman Bethune and Brown were added to the Police Committee.
Aldermen H. R. McCraney (Ward 3), G. W. Thomas (Ward 4) and W. P. Brown (Ward 5) had resigned, so the by-election in those wards was set for August 2. The July 11 Board of Works report was adopted, including the recommendation that, “the Council do open up a trail on Denman Street from Georgia Street to English Bay and surface grade the same to the extent of 7 ½ ft in width.”
