Nov. 5, 1948 - Meat inspection on books only: According to the law books, Green Bay has had a meat inspection program in force for the past 10 days - but that's according to the statutes only.

There is no such inspection because of a controversy in the finance committee of the city council about how much to pay the meat inspector, Charles Corson, a veteran of 20 years as a meat checker for the federal government.

The law says that an ordinance goes into effect 60 days after its adoption by the council and its subsequent publication. The ordinance was passed on Aug. 17 and published on Aug. 26.

Difficulty began at the Oct. 7 meeting of the city council when some council members felt that the $5,000 annual salary recommended by Dr. G.M. Shinners, city health officer, was excessive. The proposal was turned over to the finance committee.
