I I BOCA RATON A garbage pickup scheduled for Saturday will resume the first three-tlme-a-week garbage collection since before the spring strike of public works employes. A walkout of some 75 department workers, including the entire sanitation force May 28 had forced garbage pickup since to be held to once and twice a week. Public Works Director William Prendergast reported Thursday that the department now had a full complement of 46 employes again and garbage pickup had been resumed to its original schedule this week. Five garbage trucks carrying crews of four men each are in service with a fifth crew of four men being used as a relief crew, Prendergast disclosed. Collections are to be made at each residence Monday, Wednesday and Friday, or Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Each crew is working five eight-hour days a week, with the relief crew working the sixth day The depa.

One of the trucks is to replace one of the old trucks now in service. The second truck will bring the garbage fleet to six vehicles. So far, Prendergast reports, there has been no rush to fill the five job openings even with a raise. Beginning today, the basic wage for a sanitation worker is $1.96 an hour, up .24 from last fiscal year's beginning pay of $1.72 an hour. Thirteen workers already employed in sanitation meanwhile will get a raise from $1.83 to $2.10 an hour beginning with this week's pay check. The wage Increases are all part of a $150,000 raise total included in the new year's $244,828,000 city operating budget. The figure does not include salaries for 21 new positions now open f or Increment raises. The Increases boosts the starting beginning wage for police patrolmen from $441. to $482. a month, and the starting wage for beginning firemen from $421. to $468. a month.

LIGHTWEIGHT PORTABLE COLOR TV sioners that Rotonda district use the Loxahatchee River. Objections by federal, state, local agencies and conservationists to the original drainage plan for southeast Martin County, outlined by the US. Army Corps of Engineers, were noted in Storch's letter. Storch said In his four-page letter: 1. The initial plan developed by the corps of engineers was for drainage of surface water In excesses from southeastern Martin County into the upper reaches of the northwest fork of the Loxahatchee River; drainage In the general direction of "the fall of the land." 2. Fish and wildlife Interests and local conservation groups strongly objected to channelization in the northwest fork. 3. Full consideration was given by the corps to reasonable alternatives for drainage which would not require channelization in the northwest fork. 4. Strong objections to any drainage into any portion of the Loxahatchee River were received again from conservation groups, fish and wildlife agencies and, In particular, from the Florida State Board of Conservation. 5. The final recommended plan, now authorized, has removed from the project the construction of any works which will result in accelerated flood runoff to any part of the Loxahatchee River. Bell pointed out that the planned canal of the Rotonda Drainage District parallels on the north and west the C-135 canal In the final recommended plan referred to by Storch. Storch summarized positions taken by various agencies concerning drainage into the Loxahatchee River. The director of Florida Board of Conservation, Randolph Hodges, wrote In May 2, 1966: ". . . it is requested that the water control study of Martin County now being made by your office consider other ways and means of routing the flood waters out of Martin County without using the channels of the Loxahatchee River. The plan as now proposed Is not acceptable to the board." Referring to letters objecting to the drainage Into the Loxhahatchee River, Storch stated: "A wide spectrum of federal and state agencies voiced strong and serious objection to any plan which contemplated directing excess surface water runoff from Martin County Into the Loxahatchee River. From every Indication received by this district, this position was completely endorsed by all conservation Interests In the affected areas." At the Oct. 22 commission meeting, commissioners pointed out the original objections to drainage into the Loxahatchee River when representatives of conservation groups suggested that no more surface water be emptied Into the St. Lucie Canal. A public hearing was held by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers several weeks ago at the Holiday Inn here on Ro-tonda's request for a temporary drainage ditch permit which would allow discharging water Into the St. Lucie Canal near Spillway "H" just east of Indian town. The corps Is asking the county commission to state whether or not It has any objections to issuing of the permit. Commissioners are expected to make a decision on the permit at the Nov. 12 meeting. s j Cl0rTV J ' o o D "The carryette" 14 inch diag.
