Such ordinance shall be read on three separate days. The rules requiring such reading shall not be suspended. Such appropriation shall not be restrictive of the control by the public officers or authorities over such public ground, common, landing, or wharf, subject to the continued maintenance and use of such elevated track upon the conditions agreed upon.
