The Street Lighting committee agreed to recommend improved lighting in Infirmary Street with Seven new lamps. Bailie McKenzie wanted full lighting to be left on until later, so that people, especially young girls, coming off the last bus could get home before the lamps went out. The committee asked the surveyor to report the extra cost.
