Act 186 of 1891

123.91 Lighting works; construction, operation, maintenance, contract power.

Sec. 1.

That it shall be lawful for any city or incorporated village in this state to acquire by purchase or to construct, operate and maintain works for the purpose of supplying such cities or villages and the inhabitants thereof with gas, electric or other lights, or to contract for the furnishing thereof at such times and on such terms and conditions as the common council of any such city or the board of trustees in any such village shall direct.

CL 1948, 123.91
Compiler's Notes: This act seems to have been intended to supercede Act 115 of 1891, on same subject. The only essential difference between the two acts is that this act provides for contracts for furnishing light as well as construction of works by municipality. In section 1, clause “or to contract for the furnishing thereof,” is inserted. In section 2, clause “or when such common council shall deem it expedient to contract for the lighting of such cities and villages, with electric or other lights,” is inserted, and all after first proviso added. In section 3, vote required of electors is made “a majority,” instead of “two-thirds,” and proviso added. The title of this act however, does not mention “inhabitants,” as does Act 115, 1891. But see MCL 123.101.
