Description

Excerpt from Annual Report of the Town Officers of the Town of Gilmanton, Comprising Those of the Selectmen, Collector, Treasurer, Auditors and School Committee: For the Year Ending March 1, 1882 The debt of the town March 1, 1881, was 3836, March 1, 1882, it is showing a reduction during the last year of This reduction is actual, and has not been made at the expense and general welfare of the town. No material interest has been allowed to suffer, and no large bills left unpaid in order to show unprecedented decrease of the debt. The bridges in town are a constant source of expense, and vou Will observe that a large amount has been laid out on the same. This was absolutely required in order to put them in a safe condi tion. The roads of this hilly town are hard to keep in repair and the appropriation annually made by the town is not sufficient to keep the roads in suitable condition. You will observe that the drain upon the treasury is large to supplement the annual amount raised for the repair of roads and bridges. We would recommend that the sum of $500 be raised in money in addition to the amount usually raised to be laid out in work - so that the selectmen may have some funds to draw on to defray these ever recurring ex penses. The expense of taking care of the poor in town the past year has not been large. We are now supporting James F. Sanborn at the expense of two dollars per week. The other items under the head of poor in town have been on account of temporary aid. We have settled several cases on account of damages on the high way. The year past has been an unfortunate one to the town in respect to accidents occurring by defective roads and bridges. The claim of Charles H. Shannon for damages to horse in 1876, was referred by order of the Supreme Court to John W. Ashman, Esq., and a hearing was had before him, with a result adverse to the town. Jesse L. Allen in August last met with an accident at the bridge near Allen's Mills, and after a careful investigation of the casement for the town. There are no claims outstanding against the town for damages. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
