FPL will ask the State Board of Conservation to make the study, at a cost of $100 per dav to be paid bv the FPL. Jack McGee said the properties, a complex of multi-unit apartments surrounding grounds pool and club house, will have to be assessed. Other annexations voted on by citizens Tuesday will have to wait for legislative approval FORT PIERCE The St. Lucie County Commission gave Its blessing Tuesday to plans of Florida Power and Light Co. for a biological study of the area where FPL plans Its newest nuclear power plant. Florida Power Vice President Richard D. Hill asked first for a dredge and fill permit so the company can dredge a channel to the plant site. The fill dredged up from the channel. Hill said, would be placed inside dikes on the property and would be at least a part of the site on which the plant will be built. But the commission backed down on the dredge permit, saying the biological study By DAVETATHAM Buret a Chief BOCA RATON A proposal from a local developer to trade property west of the Florida Turnpike for the city dump site on south Dixie Highway where he wants to build homes and condominium apartments was being studied by city officials Wednesday. City Manager Alan Alford, who met with Fred Mason of Mason Realty Corp., the developer, on the matter Wednesday morning, has asked for opinions from Planning Director Walter Young Public Works Director William Prendergast and Planning Consultant Milo Smith before making a recommendation to the city council. '. The council referred the proposed land exchange to Alford , at Tuesday night's meeting af ter Mason's plan was disclosed. Mason said Wednesday in his meeting with Alford that he could offer an approximate 15-acre site for dumping "outside the city limits." He said the site is west of the turnpike but gave no specific location because the land proposition remains tentative. The developer disagreed with a recent remark by Mayor Harold V. Maull who said the property on South Dixie, which is just about filled to capacity with garbage, was worth more than an exact equal land exchange as had been suggested by Mason. Mason noted that the dump site has no frontage on Dixie Highway or on the Hillsboro Canal to the south, and abuts a railroad track, the Florida East Coast. before becoming part of the city. An area between 7th and 10th Avenues No., west from the city limits to Boutwell Road, with the exception of a northwest plat, was accepted by voters. Final figures recorded 3,186 persons in favor and 614 against its annexation. The property, owned by Dr. Frank Dolly and Arvin Lin, is due for residential development in the future. No one lives in the area now, so there were no objections against annexation. Another piece of property approved In a straw vote for annexation to the city proper, Is a 20-acre parcel of" land adjacent to Lakeside Point Gardens, and bordered on the west by Lake Osborne. The land, formerly owned by former City Manager Tom Smith, Is to be developed by Kenneth Murry Into another adult community. Both annexation proposals will have to be submitted to the legislature when it next meets. The 20-acre parcel will be voted on formally In the March, 1969, municipal elections for annexation.

City assessor Toll Free Phone Use Is Sought BOYNTON BEACH - Serious efforts will be made by a new committee of the Greater Boynton Beach Chamber of Commerce to get toll free telephone service from the Boynton Beach area (telephones with 732 prefixes) to Greater West Palm Beach exchanges. Henry Thompson, president of the chamber, announced the formation of the new committee during a specially called press conference Wednesday afternoon. Thompson said that the toll free service is especially desirable In the light of expected substantial growth in the Boynton Beach area with attendant additional telephone usage to numbers in the Greater West Palm Beach exchanges. Boynton Beach telephone users now have toll free telephone service to prefixed 582, 585, 588, 965 and 967 numbers In the Greater West Palm Beach exchange. Thompson also announced the formation of a special committee within the chamber to see to the production of a 20-minute color film promoting the Boynton Beach area. The proposed film would be released to television stations, travel agencies and chambers of commerce in northern He said the property he had a chance to offer the city contained sandy soil Into which dumping ditches would be dug. The developer added that he would not necessarily Insist on an exact land track swap, but Is interested in whatever the city might suggest In the way of an exchange. Mason said he had made a land trade offer to the city for the dump site some time ago, but that the city did not like the site he proposed to trade. He had another business Investor have plans to construct some 600 homes and condominium residences on the 17-acre dump and an adjoining 39-acre parcel Mason now owns. He estimated that the development he plans, which Is contingent upon some rezoning, could be started within six months and would add a total of some $20 million to the tax roll from his and surrounding future development. Hopes for a compost plant here meanwhile are fast fleeting. City Atty. Malcolm Anderson, upon Instruction of the council, is checking the legal aspects If the city votes to void its eight-month-old contract with Florida Compost. The Boca Raton firm, which has since unofficially merged with International Organics, Inc. of Nassau, Bahamas, has a contract to begin chemically treating city garbage March 5, 1969. Failure by the firms to show by this past Tuesday night's council meeting evidence of their corporate structure, financial stability and option rights to possible property prompted the council to seek a legal opinion for possible contract action at the next meeting. Howard Burr, president of Organics, failed to attend the meeting. Hoyt E. Morris, president of Florida Compost, was In the audience but failed to impress council that any action on the much-delayed and controversial garbage plant had been taken. Action on a give-and-take proposal which would allow a builder to erect ocean front high rises above 150 feet In exchange for deeding to the city minimum 10-foot wide access paths from SR A1A to the beach is scheduled at Tuesday's meeting when a full council Is expected to be in attendance. Nothing was done on the matter at the last meeting because Councilman Bernard Turner was absent. Alford Is expected to meet with at least one representative of the Southeastern Fire Underwriters Association soon to get an opinion about continuing to maintain street fire-call boxes.
