LURGAN LIGHTING

Urban Council's Schemes. At the monthly meeting of Lurgan Urban Council on Monday, the Town Clerk , Mr. F. W. Pollock submitted an estimate from Mr. J. Tallentine, gasworks manager, for 6,545 (which with 10 per cent. for contingencies amounted to almost 7.000) for repairs to the gasworks. Mr. Tallentine added that no gas could be made for two months while the works were being carried out. The Chairman (Mr. E. Lnnn, J.P. said that would be a very serious matter for the town. The council decided to apply to the Local Government Board for sanction to loans of follows: 25,000 for electric lighting scheme, 4,000 for conversion of power at Casto- Bay from steam to electricity, 7.200 for repairs at gasworks. 1.500 for purchase and alteration of stores, and 1.500 for the purchase of additional ground for a cemetery.

If you would like to make a donation to the Lurgan Ancestry project, however small (or large!), to enable us to acquire these records, it would be very much appreciated. We could cover our pages in Goggle Ads to raise money, but feel that this would detract from the information we are trying to provide. You can also help us to raise money by purchasing some of our ebooks on our sister website: www.genealogyebooks.com
