KNOWLTON MAYOR Honorable Members of City Council: I aru vetoing Ordinance No. 4979, entitled "An Ordinance Repealing Ordinance 4802, Approved December 8, 1930, and for Other Purposes," which ordinance was passed by you June 27, 1932. If this ordinance reduced the price of gas to any consumer one cent this action would not be taken. To the contrary, I axa informed by those affected that it would mean an increase to the industries in this city, who are solely affected. by the ordinance, of from $30,000 to $65,000 in fuel cost if the regular price is restored. And the gas bill of not one person, firm, or corporation will be reduced one penny. I am most certainly in favor of a reduction in utility rates along various lines, but I am also strongly in favor of encouragement of our local industries. The laundries, packing houses, oil mills, cotton compress, etc., would have their gas rate increased by this ordinance, and I cannot see where any advantage would accrue to our city by increasing the operating expenses of these local industries $30,000 to W,000.-per, ye r in fuel cost. a, 4- O� f Tide are hoping tom e this an inviting field for industries, yet one of ohindrances is fuel cost. I am approving Resolution No. 1268, which requires copies of all contracts with industrial users and the Little Rock Gas and Fuel Company to be filed with the City Clerk in ten days, where they will be available to the public. Monday night there was introduced by Alderman Terral an ordinance repealing the 50 -cent monthly service charge embraced in the schedule of rates of the -2- City council HORACE A. KNOWLTON MAYOR Little Rock Gas and Fuel Company, which was referred to the PuIblic Utilities Committee. I am sure the Committee will move as expeditiously as legally possible in considera- tion of that ordinance and give further consideration to amendment of the rates and report their findings back to the Council, but pending a final settlement of rates with the Gas Company I do not think our local industries should be required to pay higher fuel xE.tes than have been existent under Ordinance No. 4802. That is ray sole reason for this veto. Respectfully submitted, Awe HAK: VT hdayor. June 30, 1932.
