Councilmen Cook and Miller were present, while Pierce, Muckey, Elbert and Andreasen were, absent. The City Council then met in an adjourned session with Mayor Pro Tern Ken Pierce. Councilmen present for this meeting were Muckey, Andreasen, Elbert, Cook, and Miller. Mayor Finn was absent. The two main topics of discussion at the meeting concerned ambulance Mr- vice for the city and county and the extension of sewers in the city. No decisions were reached concerning the ambulance service for the city and county, and action on this matter will be taken after further investigating into the possible solutions to the problem. Officials now are trying to decide just who will purchase and maintain the ambulance service, the county or the city or some sort of combination of the two. Algona mayor William Finn has already met once to discuss the matter with the County board of supervisors, but no definite solutions have been adopted. AFTER DISCUSSIONS with Howard Smith, engineer, Mason City, drainage extensions totaling $70,000 in cost were approved by the Council. These were: the extension of the storm sewer on East Elm for one block to Putnam; and the extension of the sewer from Elm and Main to Putnam and south on Putnam to McGregor. This work will all be in the eastern section of Algona. Smith also discussed with the council the report submitted by the American Pipe Service about the condition of the sanitary sewer on North Jones street. It was the opinion of the council and engineer that some of the sewer be replaced before the State Highway Commission's highway widening project is begun in 1970. The council authorized Smith to meet with the District Urban Engineer of the State Highway Commission at Mason City before any action is taken on this matter.
