Work got underway during the week on Algona's $170,065 sanitary relief sewer project, which is slated to alleviate sewer problems for the eastern portion of the city and also provide for future expansion In that direction. The photo above was snapped as workmen (in light area, left center) labor in the sun, while a diesel-powered shovel, right foreground, goes after huge mouthfuls of dirt, while shaded, as Fate would have it, by large trees in the area. The p.ace is East Oak street, looking west toward the intersection of Oak and Minnesota streets. The ditch is 14 feet deep. There had been considerable speculation about the job after announcement that : the single,bidder got the contract. An Algona councilman explained it thus: there was'only one bidder, but the council felt that work should start at once without delay if possible for the benefit of the area concerned. The single bid was accepted, even though about $18,000 over the engineering firm's estimate. Of the total cost, 148,365 is for the sewer work proper, and $21,700 is estimated as the cost of leg, administrative and engineering fees and inspection connected with the project.
