The Post Office Department is seeking bids for an improved building to house its postal operations at Fenton. Under the Department's Lease Construction program, a contract will be awarded to the bidder who designates an existing building suitable to the Department's needs and agrees to improve it according to departmental specifications and then lease it to the Depar- tmen for a basic period of 5 years, with options to renew the lease for an additional 6 years. The Department's capital investment will be limited substantially to postal equipment. The building will remain under private ownership, with the owner paying local real estate taxes. * * Mrs. Kate Wegener will be honored on her 90th birthday April 16 from 2 to 5 p.m. A family open house will be held at the Kenneth Johnson home.
