Regular meeting of the Board of Directors of the Newhall Chamber
of Commerce was called to order by President Swall at 8.00 P.M. in the Masonic Club Room.

P.C. Miller, chairman of the Fire District Committee, reported that we
could get the following fire trucks at the following prices; New Reo for $4500., Second Hand
Reo for $3500., Dodge for $3850. and Ford for $2700. After discussing the merits of each truck
and its equipment, a motion was passed that those present forward the buying of the
Second Hand Reo and that the chairman of the committee be instructed to get further particulars
in regard to the purchase of this truck and report at next meeting.
Mr. McMannus reported that Mr. Erwin said he would do everything possible
to help us get street signs. Mr. McMannus was asked to draw up the outline of an improvement
district according to tentative plans presented to the Board and report at next meeting.
President Swall reported that an engineer had gone over the water situation
here but that so far no report had been made. He also reported that Mr. Perkins offered to put
in a public water place just as soon as we decided where we wanted it.
As it had rained on the day set aside for cleaning up the town, a
motion was passed that we hire someone to gather up the rubbish, to be paid out of the regular
funds of the Chamber, and Mr. Doty was asked to take charge of this work.
A bill of $20.50, presented by Mrs. Brown for the printing of letter
heads and envelopes, was approved and ordered paid.
There being no further business, the meeting adjourned to Oct. 10th at usual
time and place.
