November 3, 1909

$30,000 Will Be Expended in Build-
ing City Hall.

At the special election held in Independence yesterday for the purpose of voting to increase the bonded indebtedness to the extent of $30,000 for the purpose of erecting a city hall, the bonds carried by a majority of 456, leaving a few votes to spare, a two-third majority being required. The council met last night, canvassed the vote and decided at once to have plans and specifications drawn for the new building.

The building likely will be erected on South Main street, just across from the Masonic building. The city has secured an option on this property, which will cost $10,000, leaving $20,000 to be expended for the new structure.
