Excerpt from The Mayor's Message: With Accompanying Documents, to the City Council of the City of St. Louis, at Its May Session, 1874 The cleaning of the streets is not entirely satisfactory under the present system, nor was it so under the modes formerly in force for, if let by contract, the contractor, as experience has shown, neglects the work in order to increase his profits. The real difficulty of the case is the great extent of territory to be cleaned with a limited annual appropriation, and as I have often before remarked, we can never expect good or clean streets with our present system of repairs, for the macadamizing laid down one day is hauled off again in a short time in the shape of mud or dust. I am not prepared to recommend a return to the contract system as formerly in force, but it may be advisable to revise the existing ordinance and supply such additional 'regulations as experience has shown to be necessary.
