Did the mayor exceed his authority? This question was hotly debated at a town council meeting in September of 1938. The subject was relief payments, which were paid by the town in those days. Some councillors waffled, some chose sides, and one excused himself from the meeting! In the end it was dealt with as these things so often are – they would wait and get a report, then deal with it later.
