Boynton To Decide Sewer Idea BOYNTON BEACH - If the city council accepts a proposal made at Monday night's workshop session here, city sewer costs could be cut an estimated $150,000 say developers. A sewer system for Golf View Harbor subdivision, proposed by Hollywood developer Norman Michael, would provide the city with off-site utility Installations in the southwest section of the city. According to John Klinck of Russell and Axon, Consulting Engineers, Inc., the developers plan to cut citv costs for sewers in the area by $150,000 If the citv accepts the proposal. In return, developers in the southwest area are hopeful that the city will install a force main to carry sewage from the area to the city's treatment plant. In other business at the workshop session, the council studied the garbage and trash collecting problems facing the citv. about $300,000 remaining from a 1966 $1.5 million beach bond issue, is expected to be spent during fiscal year 1968-69 when Spanish River Park acquisition matters are resolved.

' " "Everyone Ignores the average 18-month lag that exists before a city realizes a tax . return on the new improve ments to a property ," the mayor declared. "In.. the interim the service must be provided, and that falls on those already on in? tax roll." An additional tax burden, he said, befalls the taxpayer because of homestead exemption. About 8.5 per cent of potential tax income was deducted from the tax roll in Boca Raton this year because of the exemption. An additional amount will be deducted In the future if the proposed condominium exemption clears the legislature. In his talk, entitled "The Present and Future Problems of a Growing Boca Raton," Maull called for the elimination of the exemption program entirely, declaring that it had served its purpose in attracting people to Florida and was no longer needed. Turning his attention to another point, the mayor said retention of single family, zoned areas is the greatest safeguard against high density. ' . He said the lowest tax mil-lage Is produced by high per-capita property values "and for this we can thank the .single family unit." - ' Maull also touched on the problems the city faces In funding street, sewer, drainage and recreation Improvements. makes good gift sense to a man! credential billfold by r: Handsome?

Authority to advertise for the bids was given by the St. Lucie County Erosion Control District, Tuesday, as was a formal contract with the engineering firm of Wood, Beard, Bell & Associates for consulting services on the project. Erosion district Chairman Cody L. Bailey announced that a meeting will be held with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers soon on the dredge permit which will be required by the successful bidder. The fill material Is to be taken from a 200-foot wide channel, more than a mile long, connecting with a channel that now runs to Faber Cove and extends south to Surfslde Park.

Carlton, director of the division of beaches and shores, State Internal Improvement Fund trustees, for his presentation of the erosion plan before the trustees last week. Carlton wrote that Bailey and the county staff had put in many hours of hard work to combat what at first appeared to be insurmountable odds against successful completion of the project. He suggested that the corps of engineers be contacted as soon as possible, "to move the project along." BOCA RATON Investment of "idle" funds during fiscal year 1967-68 has reaped $410,160.30 in interest, City Finance Director Thomas J. Mullen disclosed Tuesday. The greatest portion of the interest income, $134,516.56, was derived from about $3 million in water and sewer certificate funds which have been held In escrow since their issuance in 1963. Part of a $6-million issue, the $3 million will not be needed for bonded indebtedness payments until 1972, and therefore had been invested, Mullen said. The remainder of the interest income comes from 13 other budget sources. A total of $78,834.06 Is Interest from a water and sewer construction fund. A total of $66,368.47 comes from a beach fund. The last amount was earned from about $1.3 million the city has ready for buying additional land at Spanish River Park. Acquisition has been stalled because of land litigation.

For water and sewer loans, a total of $7,380,000 and $5,234,-000 in principal and interest is Jupiter Inlet May Stay With COG JUPITER INLET COLONY The town commission probably will retain Its representation in the Council of Governments (COG), a source said Tuesday. The decision to stay with COG was made last month during a workshop session, and the commission still has taken no official action to withdraw, it was pointed out. Last month, Commissioner Fred Baldt resigned from the chairmanship of the utilities sub-committee of COG after a dispute with Dr. George Shearer, mayor. Mayor Shearer said Baldt had been given no authority to speak for the Colony on matters pertaining to the spending of money for a feasibility study of creating a water and sewage district, and he would ask the commission to withdraw from COG. Commissioners disagreed with the mayor, the source said, and Baldt probably will remain as a representative to COG. The sub-committee he had headed now Is chaired by VV. D. Jenkins. COG's committee chairmen were slated to meet last night at the office of Dr. Robert Gro-gan, finance chairman, but the session was not open to the press. California COHI5! ' - - , Sixth Fleet 1 to 5 p.m. the Port at fluent could pollute off-shore waters, said "Until outfall system pollution is a proven fact, we have an obligation to our own citizens who have been paying for 40 years on a sewage system. A contract with Palm Springs could lead to a rate reduction to our citizens." However, since the April meeting, nothing further has developed. The Village of Palm Springs has Its own sewage treatment plant, but has been warned to update it at a high cost. Seepage from the plant has been the cause of complaints from residents and persons living in nearby Lake Clarke Shores. Cost of a tie-in with Lake Worth might be worked out on a monthly payment basis, instead of calling for a bond issue for village residents. 2 Kids' Day Shows Set For South Bay SOUTH BAY Members of the South Bay police auxiliary have scheduled two Kids' Day shows Saturday at 2:30 and 8 p.m. on the lot north of the Phillips 66 truck stop, it was announced by Capt. Don Clark, auxiliary commander. Profits from the one-day shows will be used to purchase equipment for the volunteer organization. GOP Considers Men To Fill Bafalis' Seat this year, Commissioner George Ingersoll proposed a plan similar to one now In force with Palm Beach Junior College. Commissioners unanimous ly accepted the plan calling for a force main to be run to the village boundary, and for the village to pay the cost of the main from the boundary. The village would also have to forfeit its sewer service franchise between city and village limits.

Meeting for the first time since the acceptance of a revised state constitution, members speculated on the future structure of the Republican party in the state. Mrs. Jean Reich, wife of Palm Beach County Republican Executive Committee Chairman Donald Reich, said, "If Senator Bafalis is appointed and accepts the position, there will be an election In the offing." Mrs. Virginia Engstrom added, "We have three legislators who were not elected last week who would be available for a senate scat, Joseph Humphrey, Robert DeYoung and Robert Rust."
