That an absence of civic pride, or
unmindfulness of civic responsibility,

City of Ocala, Florida.
Gentlemen: In response to your re

of October 9th, requesting the bond
trustees to render a statement of the
$4290 paid to Hoehler, Cummings &
Prudden in relation to the sale of
sewerage bonds of the city of Ocala,
we beg to say.
Section" 13 of the ordinance, au authorizing
thorizing authorizing the bond issue aforesaid, is
in the words and figures following:
"Section 13. The said trustees are
hereby authorized to incur such reas

be necessary by a majority oi the

bonds, making reports, providing re

V We regret to say that we are un unable

purchaser submitted a bid for the
entire $155,000 of bonds provided the
city would allow $6650 for attorney's
fees, commissions, etc. This bid was
opened in public, a number of citizens
were present and the entire matter,
with a copy of the bid, was referred
to the council for its concurrence or
disapproval of the sale, the bond
trustees having accepted it as the
best bid. The city council concurred
in this sale and authorized the bond
trustees to conclude the contract.
When the purchasers accepted the
$100,000 of sewer bonds, we reported
this matter to the board if we should
accept this money, or if ; the entire
transaction should wait until the ap approval

$4290. This matter was reported to
the council, and the council directed
