Councilman Charles Cowen, without explanation, voted against the "lights out" order. They ordered study of the Reno arch, on which the city has been paying Electrical Products Co. $29 a month since 1946 with out any agreement that can be found by the city clerk. City Manager C. B. Kinnison said the company had been getting payments from 1940 to 1943 on one agreement, and from 1943 to 1946 on a renewal. ! "I don't know what the pay-jments are for," Kinnison said, "but we've been making them." He was ordered to find out and report back. The other neon sign is one on a city owned parking lot on West Second St., where the bills keep coming in, even though the city has since leased the lot to a private operator. Kinnison was told to find out about that one too.
