The Algona City Council voted ;o use federal funds in a city development program here Tuesday night after holding a public learing at the city hall to hear opinions whether or not the General Development Plan for Algona should be financed locally or in part by grant-in-aid under the Urban Planning Assistance Program. The council had already -agreed on a plan and had chosen an Omaha firm to make the necessary studies at a cost of $16,400. The federal .grant-in-aid will pay two-thirds of the cost while a 2 2 3 mill increase in local property taxes would have been needed to finance the program if it was financed on the local level alone. ABOUT 20 persons were present at the public hearing, and a general outline of the General Development Plan was given before discussion began concerning the actual financing of the program. Several persons expressed concern over the possibility of federal control in the plan and itr implementation. Under the federal assistance program, the plan approved by the city council will be submitted to the Iowa Development Commission for its approval. The commission will then forward the plan to the federal government. If the plan meets the fed- sral standards, the grant-in-aid will be given to the Iowa Development Commission which will work together with the city council in administering the program. Several persons said Algonans would benefit from the program since we are, in effect, paying for similar development plans in hundreds of other cities by the money which is taken fron federal income taxes. They said we should be receiving some of the funds instead of financing those of other cities through the income taxes. MANY CITIES in Iowa Have, adopted similar development plans, and the vast majority have done so on the federal grants-in-aid. A few of the Iowa cities participating are Boone, Clarion, Estherville, Humboldt, Storm Lake, Mason City and Eagle Grove. After the discussion had terminated, a show of hands was called, and those in favor of the federal assistance had the greatest number of supporters (a strong majority). It will be three ;o four months before the plan will be approved and underway. Governor's Day at Country Club next Tuesday The annual Governor's Day will be held next Tuesday, June 14 at the Algona Country Club and the 9th annual joint meeting of the Northwest Iowa Mayor's Assn. and the Northwest Iowa Chamber of Commerce Executives' Assn. will ba held in conjunction at the Country Club. Algona Mayor Bill Finn is the president of one organization and Algona Chamber secretary Bill Steele is vice-president of the other. Harold Hughes, Governor of Iowa, will be the speaker at the evening banquet. Heads of State Commissions including the State Highway, industrial Development, Public Safety, Civil Defense, Conservation, etc., have also been invited. The event is riot political. The local Barbershopper Chorus of 50 men will sing at the evening banquet. DIVORCE IS ASKED A petition for divorce was filed in district court by Carol Ann Presthus against Richard, H.
