December 10, 1976 PACK 14 Bulk Of Street Plan OK'd Hays City Commissioners Thursday approved the bulk of a $1.16 million street improvement project for 1977, but balked at a proposal to widen Hall Street from 27th to 33rd Street. Commissioners also deleted a proposal to lay a 15-foot strip of asphalt along 9th Street from Walnut to Ash for improved traffic flow and parking. The 9th Street project was dropped on the advice of City Attorney Bob Classman, who said such capital improvements on land leased from the adjacent railroad could create legal problems. The Commission postponed action on the Hall Street improvements for two weeks, so commissioners could individually view the area before deciding the issue. City engineers recommend widening the street to 53 feet from the present 40, and building curbs and gutters. Commissioners Scotty Philip and . Dan Rupp questioned the plan. Both said ESTATE PLANNING: A Financial Art •BUILDING: Assets •PRESERVING: Liquidity •TRANSFERRING Minimizing Taxes •Appraisals •Farm & Commercial Property Management •Administrators For more information contact Financial Planners: R. Edwards Allen L. J. (Bud) Brungardt 2707VIM013 Hay i, Kmim VI3-42I-30II ESTATE PLANNING & MANAGEMENT Bonded for your protection the 53-foot street might pose traffic problems, since Mall Street south of 27th street Is only 40 feet wide. Ray Flemons, consulting engineer, told the panel that previously-adopted city policy called for 53-foot widths on arterial streets, which Hall street has been designated. Flemons added that the growth of the city toward the northwest, coupled with the fact that the county land-fill is north of the city on that street, made the wider street advisable. The street projects involve construction of curbs and gutters, storm sewers, con- crete and asphalt streets, primarily in new developments in northeast and northwest Hays. The improvements, as approved by the commission, are: Canal Blvd. from 33rd to 37th; Hillcrest Drive from 35th to 37th; Lincoln Drive from the walkway sbuth of 37th to 37th; 35th from Hall to Hillcrest; 36th from Hall to Canal; 37th from Hall to Lincoln Drive. 37th from Lincoln Drive to WilloW; Willow from the alley north of 37th to the alley north of 38th; Fort and Skyline from the alleys north of 37th to the alleys north of 38th; 38th from Willow to Skyline. Gen. Lawton Road from 26th to 27th; Indian Trail from 25th to 27th, across Chetolah Creek and from 27th to 29th; Barclay Drive from 27th street Terrace to 29th; 25th from Gen. Custer to Indian Trail and Donald Drive to the alley east of Felten Drive. Felten Drive from 25th to 26th; Timber Drive from Virginia to the alley south of 25th; and repairs at Virginia Drive and the alley east of Timber Drive; 29th and Fort; Allen and 23rd and 8th and Oak. City, Service Union Okay Two-Year Pact A two-year contract between the Hays city service union and city fathers was approved Thursday by the City Commission. Administrative Assistant Mike Bair said the 1977 agreement represents a "maturation" in labor- management relations, in that the length of the contract was increased from one to two years, and the areas of negotiation have been greatly reduced. Under the pact, items to be renegotiated in 1978 involve only wages,, insurance, and one item each by the city and the union. Any other negotiations, Bair said, must be agreed upon by both parties before hand. Bair said the most significant aspect of the agreement is establishment of a labor-management committee, designed to establish "a formal environment for communication between labor and management other than the advisory proceedings of the bargaining table." The wage settlement, averaging about 9 per cent, is somewhat misleading, Bair said. That average includes some job reclassification, which involves one-Step pay increase under the city's pay plan, as well as the negotiated increase in base wages. In other Commission action: —The panel approved a three-year renewable lease of city property with the Hays Humane Society of property near the Municipal Airport. The lease will enable the Humane Society to continue plans to construct an animal shelter on the site. Carol Eddy of the Humane Society said the group has no plans at his time to ask the city to allow it to run the city dog pound. That chore is presently handled by a privately-owned kennel. "Dutch Koerner seems to be happy with the job now, and we don't want to take anything away from him," Mrs. Eddy said of the present city pound. "We believe he does an excellent job." —Heard a presentation from two Hays businessmen, Viv Meckel and Pat Taylor, concerning the proposed Custer Island park project. The men asked the Com- HEY KIDS!

BE GOOD 'CAUSE SANTA IS WATCHING! "discover the difference mission to be alert for any possible ways to help fund the proposed 100-acre park, which they said would serve both city and county residents and travelers to this area. —Granted one appeal of the 1974 sidewalk improvement project. Alois Miller, 411 E. 5th, had appealed the $196 bill he received after the city installed a sidewalk on his property. The city had removed a tree in the process and billed Miller and a neighbor for the cost. . Commissioners agreed that Miller should not have to pay for the repaying of the sidewalk that was made necessary with the removal of the tree. They voted unanimously to reduce his bill to $50, the cost of his share of the tree removal. From The Record County Court Diane Walker, Ransom, pleaded-guilty to writing an insufficient fund check; no fine, must pay $13.40 court costs and make restitution. District Court Ward . Electric Supply Company, Inc., Denver, Colorado, vs. Melvin Korbe and L-K Electric Company, 2202 Vine; seeking $1,893 plus interest and costs allegedly owned for merchandise.
