  • Notes 
    • J. C. Breithaupt, Mayor, 1896-7.

      Mr. J. C. Breithaupt entered the council in 1890 and continued in it until 1891. He was elected first deputy-reeve in 1893, and reeve in 1894. His services were appreciated and he was elected mayor in 1896 and re-elected the following year. He went back as a councillor and served until 1898, during which time the water-works were purchased by a committee of which he was a member. In 1899, he was elected a member of the first water board and has remained on it ever since. During his terms as mayor, the new G. T. R. depot was erected and Victoria Park opened. Mr. Breithaupt's public services are invaluable.1a
