No. 56. Buffalo, Sept. 7, 1915.

Plans have been filed by Peter Mazuka & one for a fire proof theatre, to be located at No. 261 E. Seneca street. Section 221 of Chapter XIII of the City Ordinances requires that in buildings of this class the automatic sprinkler system must be supplied with water from a presssure-tank or tanks located on the roof. The plans for the above buildings do not provide for such tank or tanks. However, in this case the ceiling of the stage is only 22 feet above the grade and the City water supply will give sufficient pressure and a much greater volume of water than would be supplied by a tank or tanks. Under the circumstances, I would respectfully recommend the suspension of Section 221 of Chapter XIII of the City Ordinances, so far as said section relates to the above improvement, in accordance with the provisions of Section 223 of the same chapter. All other requirements of the building laws to be complied with.

Received, filed and recommendation adopted.

Ayes—Ald. Armbrust, Broderick, Burley, Coughlin, Dance,Davidson, Endres, Fries, Geyer, Haffa, Holtz, Houck, Humphrey, Kelly, Kohl, McDonough, Meyer, Mildenberger, Purcell, Roskwitalski, Shea, Sperry, Sullivan, Suttner, Walkowiak—25.

Noes—None. (Proceedings of the Common Council, Minutes No. 32, Board of Aldermen, Tuesday, 7 September 1915, p. 1933, c. 1.)

Mr. WEIMAR moved that the action of the Board of Aldermen taken Tuesday, Sept. 7, 1915, in adopting resolution No. 56, suspending ordinances, be and the same is hereby approved.

Adopted.


Ayes—Councilmen Coad, Coppins, Dorasewicz, Glass, Holloway, Kaitanowski, Mills, Warwick, Weimar—9.

Noes—None. (Proceedings of the Common Council, Minutes No. 32, Board of Councilmen, Thursday, 9 September 1915, p. 2029, c. 1.)
