Burt Justly Proud Of New Town Hall discuss plans for the new church. Oliver S. Carslon is executive 1 chairman. Mr and Mrs Sheridan Strayer and little son Ricky spent from Thursday through Sunday here with Mr Strayer's parents, Mr and Mrs Keith Strayer. Sheridan, a ministerial student at McCormick Seminary in Chicago, ispoke at morning services Sunday at both the Irvington and Algona Presbyterian churches Mr and Mrs W. E. Beardsley and Jane and Tom arrived Sunday from Lincoln, Neb. to visit Mrs Bcarsdiey's mother, Mrs W. J. Sigsbcc. A family picnic at which the Bob Sigsbees, Swea City, and the Harlan Sigsbec families joined them, was held Sunday evening at the state park, and the Bcarsctleys and Mrs W. J, Sigsbec left 'Monday for" a vacation at Brainerd, Minn. Buri's new town hall, shown here, was completed and put into use for the first time three months ago. The building, completed at a total cost of $38,000, houses all of the town's offices, including the mayor's office, marshal's office, council meeting room, and/the fire station, a community meeting room, city library, rest rooms and a garage for the city maintenance truck. The mayor and marshall didn't have offices before, and all of the other city offices and storage spaces were strung around town in separate buildings. . Hantelman Building Service of Fenton constructed the building after another large structure, which formerly housed a general store, was torn down, The new town hall is a brick, cement block and lumber structure that faces Burt's main street from the south. The town had $13,000 in funds to apply on the cost and a bend issue was voted to cover the remaining $25,000. So one-third of the 50 x 120 foot building is paid for. Residents of the town petitioned, the Burt council to build the new town hall. A special election was held, the building okayed and constructed, and Burt wound up with the biggest change on the main street that the town had seen for 20 years. There had been talk about some type of town hall a year or so before the summer of 1958, but no official action was taken until about a year ago. From then on, it took only a few months, with the contractor working all winter, to put the building into use. Proof that the building is being used is offered -by the fact that the library has more than doubled its business since the move was made into new quarters in April. Everyone seems to like the new town hall. Burt's city officials are Nels Nelson, mayor; Walt Steward, mar- shall; G. H. McMullen, town clerk; Don Patterson, J. L. Miller, E. P. Frederickson, George Manus and O. H. Graham, councilmen; Lulu Hawcott, librarian; and Glee Bullock, fire chief. (UDM Photo & Engraving). .
