Old Town of Broad Ripple Meeting Minutes #48
posted: Mar. 10, 2006

The Town of Broad Ripple was incorporated in 1894, and started holding regular meetings at that time. In each issue, I will print my transcription of the old Town of Broad Ripple meeting minutes. These are taken from the original, hand-written minutes that contain many spelling errors. I have transcribed all the records as they were entered, including errors. I will make some corrections to the text in brackets [ ]. The original minutes books are at the Indiana State Archives at 6440 E. 30th St.
In the last installment: Sections 6-10 of the ordinance.
Here is the forty-eighth installment:
