Harbour Improvement Dues
Harbour Improvement Dues.
This subject which has given rise to a somewhat acrimonious controversy was for a time almost daily before the Committee during the three preceding months. Several conferences, with a deputation from the Harbour Board have been held, and the result of the joint deliberations has on several occasions been submitted to members in General Meeting, with the result that a modified scale of dues has been arranged to the satisfaction of all parties.
