A short discussion of curb and gutter was followed by a motion to' table the proposal indefinitely. Under the present arrangement, it is possible for property owners to have curb and gutter installed on their own, so long as a whole block or double block, in some instances, can be done at once. .Complete details; on such construction should be obtained from officials ai the city hall. It was announced that no so-called "do it yourself" curb and gutter would be allowed. Such installation could foul up the city's long-range curb and gutter plans', it was stated. It is probable that the proposed large curb and gutter program will remain tabled until this fall when plans for 1961 installation can be discussed. • George Dresen, operator of a local record shop, after presenting his case for a youth center, which will operate in a building now leased by him on East State street, was given an okay by the council.
