GUNNING: Further details of the scheme to supply Burrin-
juck electricity to the Gunning Shire were gleaned on the return
in Sydney.
The cost of tihe Gunning supply for
the first year will be £1619; the
revenue, allowing for 100 customers
and a 1½d loan rate on town allot-
ments, is estimated at £1659. At
Collector the revenue will be £682.
and the expenditure £682. The
whole of the work, which will be com-
pleted early next year, is to be done
by contract. One contractor has
offered to make connections at 22/6
a light. The council will erect the
wiring to the house with meters free
of charge.
The present house wiring will be
inspected by a certificated mechanic
and the existing installations will be
brought up to standard. As the pre-
sent voltage is 110, heavier wiring
may be necessary to take the new
power of 240 volts.
It is assumed that the Gunning
supply will be taken from the shire
boundary at Breadalbane, along the
Hume Highway to a point opposite.
"Raeburn" homestead (the Collector
light will branch off from here),
thence to a point opposite Mr. Han-
nan's homestead, along the northern
side, of the railway to Cullerin, con-
tinuing past Signal Hill to "Colliing-
wood," and finally to Gunning.
Provision is made for 35 street
lights in Gunning; this Iincludes 10
mercury vapour lamps;
