Thursday, July 13, 1967 Algona (lo.) Upper Des Moines—7 Burt The Monitor Lone Rock Ruby HlftntMyi Publiih«d ly tht Upptr &*i Meln»i PubHihing Co., Algona, Iowa D.nnli WdUt, MHor Burt Budget Being Planned By Council The Burt water tower will be maintained under a 10-year contract, Burt town council decided Thursday. A contract was entered into with Watertower Paint and Repair Co. of Clear Lake at $210 per year for 10 years. The company will clean and treat the water supply tank and make necessary repairs once a year, and paint the interior two or three times during the 10- year period. The council spent most of the evening meeting discussing budget for the coming fiscal year. A special meeting was set for Monday night to complete the work and adopt a budget. The council received estimates for several contractors for installation of new sidewalk on the west side of City Park. No estimate was accepted due to lack of money in the street fund account. Councilmen say the lack of funds is due to unexpected costs of repairing the railroad crossing and the purchase of a new truck. The sidewalk will be installed as soon as funds are available. Delegates from the library board discussed their budget for next year with the council. Hugh Williams was granted permission to build an addition on his house.
