16-Algona, (lo.) Upper Das Moinet Tueidoy, May 16, 1967 P0ft 1(111(1 Clllfa Will Have A Picnic In June Council Okays Survey Of Sewers For East Algona The first major rain storm of 19G7 here Wednesday was followed by a meeting of the city council that evening — and one of the main items of business pertained to a project aimed at bettering the sanitary sewer setup in the eastern portion of the city. From reports, the eastern portion of Algona is not the only one needing improved sanitary sewer service — as many residents experienced backed-up sewer problems that night in their homes. However, the council approved the investigation for infiltration for residents in that part of the city - and at least if s a start. Such a survey, which is already underway, includes every day checks at various points in the area - and eventually a TV camera wil work underground in an effort to find cracks, etc., in the existing sewer lines. Some areas have been reporting water back-up for several months, although the problem doesn't compare with those in the same general areas several years ago before new lines were installed and the system improved. Another sewer problem discussed by the council had to do with an intake at the intersection of Call and Smith streets. It is probable it will re-designed to handle water better. A trash pump, which can be used to get sludge out of sewers, was purchased for the street department for $570 and the council also bought a generator for the same crew for $702. An offer from Herman Wise of Corwith to purchase a lot owned by the city at the corner of Elm and Main streets was read and City Clerk Dave Smith was authorized to advertise the land and set June 14 as the date of hearing for the sale. Mr. Wise offered $1,350 to the city. The council also okayed a trip by Mr. Smith to the Iowa Finance Officers' meeting in Des Moines this week and authorized a quit claim deed to Bituminous Material and Supply Co. Juniors Fete Seniors At Garrigan Prom "Moonlight and Roses" was the theme of the Garrigan Prom held last Thursday evening.

Guests were ushered into the gymnasium through a trellis decorated with roses. The gymnasium had a large mural about 9 x 40 feet, which contained a large moon, reflected in the water, with a spotlight trained on it. On the stage was a fountain, picket fence, lawn furniture, garden, and many roses used. Against a midnight blue ceiling, there were 1,000 stars. Before the facade of a colonial house, there was grass on which lawn furniture and tables had been placed. Large rose trees occupied one corner, while a lily pond and white wrought iron furniture was in another. A number of love seats were used to seat those who wished pictures taken.
