The first part of the index contains street sewers and street pavements only. There is given a complete record of every step taken in regard to any sewer or pave. ment during the year 1922. (In some cases reference must be had to the 1921 Recoril for the initial steps; in other cases all the steps were not completed during 1922.) The streets are arranged alphabetically by their first letter only. Numbered streets are indexed by their first letter when written out-as, East 91st St. (Ninety-first Street) will be found under was follows: 91st St. E.; West 105th St. (One Hundred and Fifth Street) will be found under 0 as follows: 105th St., W. The word "Pave" or "Sewer” following the name of the street indicates the character of the improvement. The limits of the improvement are indicated on the second line usually by the names of two streets. Below the limits will be found the names of councilmen who are the authors of the legislation and the number in front of the name refers to the column of the index, similarly numbered, where will be found the reference to the legislation in question. The main divisions of the street improvement index are: Petitions, Remonstrances. Communications, Resolutions, Ordinances, Miscellaneous Matter and Board of Control.
