A new sewage facilty is located on Route 119 adjacent to the new Burrell Township system installed by Dow Chemical Co. The authority agreed at its May meeting to open bidding for sale of the plant in Black Lick to private companies who would agree to remove the old system and store it on private property. Since the quoted price was changed, it became necessary for the board of directors to reaward the workmen's compensation insurance contract to PMA Insurance of Johnstown.

Betty Schmedicke, executive director of the housing authority, reported that beginning June 17 and continuing through"July, the authority will be conducting houskeeping and maintenance inspections of its 224 housing units. Another issue dealt with Saltsburg Borough Council's request for authority support of a hydroelectric plant to be built in conjunction with Westmoreland County on the Conemaugh River. The council, in cooperation with Westmoreland County, seeks support for a Urban Development Action Grant. Application for the grant must first be approved by the Pennsylvania Public Utilities Commission, then be submitted to the federal government for final approval. If the grant is approved and the hydroelectric plant built, it would mean an economic boost of $160,000 per year for the Saltsburg-Loyalhanna Township (Westmoreland) area, according to a Saltsburg spokesman. The authority will lend support to the project through letters to the county commissioners and state and federal legislators. The housing authority's existing Section 8 program, it was reported, has 518 low-income people on a waiting list for rent aid to be paid directly to landlords. The authority presently spends $26,000 per month for the 148 units it now has leased. Schmedicke announced that effec- tive July 1, the federal government will be reducing the administrative fee for Section 8 by 10 percent. This will mean an annual revenue loss of $7,000 for the authority. In other action, the board of directors: — Announced that its annual reor- ganizational meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 9 at Chestnut Ridge Inn in Blairsville. State representative Bill Stewart, D-Johnstown, will speak. The Indiana County commissioners will also attend. — Established employee wages for fiscal year beginning July 1. There will be a 6 percent increase across the board. — Opened the loan bid received for general liability insurance for a three-year period beginning July 11. The bid was received from and awarded to Alexander and Alexander of Forth Worth, Texas. The premium on the policy with Gulf Insurance of Dallas, Texas, will be §2,197 annually. Limits of coverage are $1 million for bodily injury, $500,000 for personal injury, and $50,000 property damage. — Awarded a contract to purchase 97 closet doors for Conemaugh Terrace Project in Blairsville, a housing program for the elderly. Bids were received from W.R. Hardware, Williamsport, Md., $7,968; Lazor Lumber, Indiana. $5,272.95; and Sears HUD Consolidated, Pittsburgh, $4.104.90. The contract went to the low bidder.
