Lake Worth Plans Study Of Sewer Bill Area Deaths And Funerals Palm Beach Post.Thurs., November 14. 196& B9 New Trial Ordered In Barmaid Murder the engineer's letter was not on file. "It's possible it was addressed to the mayor, or council, and has not been passed on to us yet," said Mrs. Lois Doe, secretary. "I'm sure there's no intent to withhold It." Grant declined to repeat his. recommendations to the council, during a telephone conversation Wednesday afternoon. "You will have to get it from the town. That's where the recommendation went to." Both men have been on death row at Raiford since their convictions at De Funiak Springs in December 1965. In ordering the new trial, the high court upheld the first-degree murder verdict for Schneble. The high court ruled that in light of a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision, the conviction against Snell must be reversed because Schneble's confession was improperly used to implicate him. Schneble. a 39-year-old New Yorker, and Snell, a 41 year-old Connecticut resident, were convicted of murdering Max-ine Ramonda Collier while t!ie three were traveling from New Orleans to Paname City. The Supreme Court said e i-dence showed that the men drove Mrs. Collier from New Orleans and strangled and shot her in Walton County. Then they put the body In the trunk of the car and hauled it to Hillsborough County, where it was discarded in a trah dump, the court said. The court said Schneble and Snell then drove to Key West and later on the way north were stopped on Florida's Turnpike by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper because of a faulty tail light. They were arrested when the trooper discovered bleed stains on the front seat and In the trunk of the car. He also reported finding two guns in the vehicle. LAKE WORTH - City commissioners at a workshop meeting at 7:30 p.m. today are expected to consider the $2,364.33 bill owed by the Town ol Lantana for sanitary sewer service. When Lantana hooked into .Lake Worth's sewer system, there was a provision in the contract for rates to be reviewed at the end of three years, and a maximum adjus'-ment of 20 per cent allowed. The three-year period expired Oct. 6, 17. Lantana did not have a consulting engineer at the time. Lake Worth engineers recommended a maximum increase, bringing the cost per 1,000 gallons of flow from five cents to six cents. In June, 1968 the Lantana Council retained John Grant of . Boca Raton as the town's consulting engineer. Acting on his recommendation, the town ; council agreed Oct. 30 to pay a 20 per cent increase. The Lantana council voted to increase the rate charges, effective Nov. 1, 1968. According to Lake Worth's financial director, unbilled charges to Lantana had reached $2,364 on Oct. 7, and are increasing at the rate of $250 a month. Contents of the engineer's report were not read int the record of the Lantana Council meeting. Councilman Richard Flodder said, "There are figures in it we should keep to ourselves; at one cent, we are getting a bargain."
