Ordinance to Pave Twelfth as a
Business Street.

A resolution was adopted by the upper house of the council last night to pave
Twelfth street, Broadway to Troost avenue, as a business street. If the document passes the lower house and is signed by the mayor, it will devolve upon the property owners to agree among themselves what material they will use. Failing in this agreement the board of public works will decide. If left to the board, Kettle River sandstone blocks will be in all probability chosen. The Metropolitan Street Railway company laid these blocks between its tracks on Twelfth from Grand avenue to Broadway. The experience has been to the credit of the new material for heavy traffic.
