Through financing the city lopes to come up with $1,577,750. Financing includes: 1) Funds available from the Blytheville Sewer Commission, $400,000; 2) A grant from the federal Water Pollution Control Administration (WPCA), .$342,750; 3) New 30-year sewer revenue bonds, $835,000. Mayor Little is in Fort Worth, Tex., today 'attending a series of meetings with federal offi- :ials. Tomorrow he meets with Hendon Crane, regional construction grant program director of WPCA, to discuss the city's grant. Blytheville still has about $400,000 in existing bonds outstanding. What yearly revenue will be needed to amortize — or retire — the existing BONDS and the new issue? (Both issues will be combined.) According to E&R's report it will take $14,000 more per year than is now being received by the sewer commission, or a total income of $181,368.30. The additional cash will come by upping residential sewer rates from $1.80 per month to $2 per month. It's interesting to see how the increase Is figured. Comprehending the procedure is a bit sticky, but still not too difficult to follow: To get a net increase of $14,000 per year the sewer system will have to increase its total take by $15,200 (expenses, you know). Now, the city has 6,159 connections to its sewer system. 'Of these, 6,536 are residential customers (the rest, commercial and industrial). At $2 a month these home owners will foot a yearly revenue increase of $13,152 ... still a bit shy of the $15,200 needed to amortize the 30-year bonds. The day Is saved by the fact that there are 175 homes inside the city limits not presently connected to the sewer system. Under the new' plan they will be hooked into it and will pay a total $4,200 a year ... boost- ng total revenue well over the •equired $15,200. warned the city It either will have lo correct the present situation or face stiff penalties. Little also contends that the entire sewer system bond indebtedness can be retired within about 12 years, based on our present growth rate." All things considered, then, Little insists that commercial and industrial sewer customers be brought Into line with the sewer system's customers. Another thing on which he insists is that the rate for home owners or residential customers go no higher than $2 a month and especially, he said, the indigent of the city be protected from high rates. Mrs. Wolsey Services for Mrs. Irene Wolsey were held yesterday in Crys tal City, Mo. She was 71. She was a former Blytheville resident and was the wife of Dave Wolsey and the sister-in- law of Frank Wolsey of Blytheville. Joe Cart Funeral services for Joe Carr, 75, of the Hickman community will be held at i p.m. Wednesday in the St. Luke Baptist Church with Rev. L. R. Hunt officiating. He leaves his wife, Ellen Carr of Hickman; And one daughter, Ruby j Pearl Carr of Dyersburg, Tenn. Burial will be in Carr Ceme- ,ery at Hickman with Home ^uneral Home in charge of arrangements. OSCEOLA (Continued from Page One) 2,500 gallons — the minimum." * * * Of course any discussion of power would be expected to lead Wiygul into an exploration of Osceola's present power situation and this one did. "I got into a hornet's nest on this one, but I'd do it again because I think a good power contract is the salvation of Osceola." To be brutally concise about It, the city of Osceola has a contract with Southwest Power Administration to supply power. Wiygul wants to honor the contract. A majority of his city council wants to negate it and accept an APL contract. There the Currently, matter rests, as Wiygul ex- Ocie Simpson Ocie Simpson, 62, died Thursday while at work at a local jottling plant where he had seen employed for the last 40 years. He leaves The fact that residential users could foot t!ie bond issue bill doesn't mean the industrial sewer customers can claim there is no need to raise their rates, according to the mayor. Not only are the industries' present rates out of line with what home owners are now paying, but Blytheville needs to make provision for a "maintenance factor," Little says. Maintenance factor" means just what it implies: a certain amount of money per year is needed to keep the sewer system operating, and for repairs. Enginers estimate that $66,000 per year is needed io maintain a sewer system the size of Blytheville's. The treatment plant is so overloaded and ineffective that state pollution control officials and state health officials have one sister, Mrs. Artris Jones of South Bend, Ind.; And a brother, David Deed of Blytheville; Funeral services will be tomorrow at 1 p.m. at the Crumpler Funeral Home chapel, Rev. T. J. Green officiating. Burial will be in Mount Zion Cemetery. Governor Invited To Obscene Movie ANNAPOLIS, ,Md. (AP) _ Gov. Spiro T. Agnew and his staff have been invited to see what was called can obscene movie. The invitation was extended Monday by the Maryland Board of Motion Picture Censors. The board has been under fire from legislators and the governor as being archaic and rendered useless by Supreme Court rulings. An aide to the governor said he doubted that Agnew would attend. anyone. Wiygul typified Osceola as "clean and progressive." Its current population is 8,500 and "we think that by.-1971, we'll be a city of 12,000." Osceola has over 3,000 industrial jobs, he said, "one for every 'two and one-half people in town." Jim Hill introduced Wiygul. plained yesterday, the city is purchasing power from APL on a month-to-month basis with no long-term contract. "It's not the worst deal in the world," Wiygul explained, 'we have the cheapest rate in Arkansas (from APL)." As for the SPA contract, Wiygul says, "I'm standing pat. I don't know if we could get out of the SPA contract even if I wanted to." Wiygul said the people of Osceola don't want out. If we had an election on it .bmorrow, I feel sure I know iow. they'd vote. They want the SPA contract. But even if they voted it out, that doesn't mean we could gel out of it." Wiygul said that the most recent study of the two-contracts failed to include the fact that the city's old generating plant can operate at only half of capacity and costs about $45,000 a year to maintain. This.. means that the city's credits! water west of Key^West^Fla for this plant would be less than' the proposal indicates, he said. * * * In his opening remarks, Wiygul said, "Osceola's the only' city I know of that has nerve enough to broadcast its c i t y council meetings ... although not by choice."
