1896-05-01 Board met pursuant to call of chairman at 2:30pm, with all
members, the clerk and architect Skillings present. The minutes of the
meetings of April 1st and 15th were read and approved. The clerk read a
letter from C.W. Beau, state superintendent of public instruction, relative
to the appointment of two members of the local board reformal school
trustees here to serve as members of the state general board. It appearing
to be doubtful if the expenses incident to the attendance of members of
this board upon the meeting of the general board could legally be paid from
the appropriation now available, the clerk was directed to write to the
state auditor and inquire whether he would audit vouchers covering such
expenses. In the matter of the dedication of $172.00 from the estimate
allowed the contractor April 1st on account of excavation, as shown by the
record of Dec. 31, is appearing from the revised figures of the engineer
and architect that the credit due the board on that account is only
$154.00, and is appearing further that any such deduction cannot properly
be made by the board, without the consent of the contractor, from the
eighty percent to which he is entitled upon each and every estimate, it was
agreed by and between the board and the contractor that the $172.00
deducted April 1st, as above noted, should be updated and that the board
should receive a
