Jeffrey Witherwax, 30 Sunset Dr., noted he and Labovitz are at the end of the proposed extension asking if the line could be run by Ihe homes that need sewers but not up as far as their homes. He noted the cost involved would be substantial to bring the line to the upper portion of the street, since the elevation is higher. Plumbing Charges Thomas O'Loskey ol the Engineering Dept. said Ihe line will be dropped to lO'.i feet to service the basements of these two homes. McGrath asked what if any plumbing changes would be necessary in the homes lo tie in, and O'Loskey responded he did not know since he hasn'l been in either house. Labovitz contended since his plumbing goes out the rear of his home it would mean tunneling through the floor and garage. He will have a choice of destroying his driveway or fronl entrance to lie into the lateral having to blast all the way, he asserted. He stated the cost would be prohibitive for both the town and the two homeowners. Witherwax agreed Die plumbing is designed togooutlherear and il is impracticable to hook in at the front, especially when a good septic system now exists. He informed the boards the lots are 400 feet deep with the rear natural woodland making lor a natural septic system. He said the board could satisfy everyone by extending the line to the two properties where the people want them which is at the beginning of the proposed extension and not install where it is unnecessary. Witherwax said he has a new system with a 1,000 gallon concrete septic tank and long leaches. Chairman McGrath checked and found Ihese lols are one acre or better in size.

LAFF - A - DAY By EDWARD K. DeLONG WASHINGTON (UPI) There should be plenty ol gasoline at America's service stations this summer, but motorists may hare lo pay record high prices for it. The Federal Energy Administration sap there are no signs of a gasoline shortage during Ihe Bicentennial summer despite an unexpectedly heavy spring surge in demand. Supplies are good, the agency says, and refinery capacity is more lhan adequate But crude oil prices are climbing - adding impetus to the normal price hike pressure of increased summer driving — and signs point toward a record high nalicnal average gasoline price of 60 cents or more a gallon.
