January 22 1920-Almonte Gazette
Almonte’s bush lot is going to prove of greater usefulness than the supplying of fuel for our local citizens. It will also provide a new hard maple flooring for the town hall, both upstairs and downstairs. The floors of the town hall are giving out and they are worn and uneven. When wood flooring was considered it never occurred to one of the bright minds of the council that there was enough of the very finest hard maple in the town’s bush lot to cover the floors and lots more besides.
This is to be acted upon and Councillors Bennett and McDonald moved on Wednesday that the fuel committee supply a sufficient amount of hard maple to cover the floors. This was carried unanimously as was also a motion later by Councilors O’Reilly and Gilmour that a sufficient quantity of timber to be taken out of the town bush lot to also cover the bridge near the Wylie Mill.
Councillor Gilmour stated in reply that there was enough red elm and spruce to do this work. In connection with both proposals it is stated that the advice of Council Gilmour will prove vauable when the details as to sawing and drying about the wood, particularly the maple for the town hall flooring, are under consideration.
