The two were Councilman Tom Rapp and Dr. Richard A Perchlik. All three candidates For .mayor had been invited to spejak-at the meeting but Mayor Dorothy Zabka was unable to attend because of a prior com mitment. Dr. Ray DeBoer, speech pro- : essor at Colorado State Col- ege, served as moderator ai .he meeting. Dr. Perchlik set an aggressive tone for his remarks in his reply lo Ihe first of a series of questions the candidates vere asked. Expressing regret .Mayor Zabka was unable to be present, D erch!ik said he had noted in attending council sessions that lapp voted about 99 per cent of he time the same way the mayor did, "so maybe he's qualified to defend her record as well as his own." Liquor Question The firsl queslion put lo the ·andidates was in regard lo the iroposal on the Nov. 4 election lallot to repeal Greeley's long- itanding prohibition of the sale if liquor in Ihe city. Perchlik's reply was that the ale of liquor here had been ontroversial issue for years and he thought a vote on the matler was logical. However, he added he was going lo vote against the proposal for "many personal reasons." Rapp said the proposal to repeal the liquor prohibition was a very emotional issue and that many persons have deep-seated convictions one way or the oth- er. The councilman candidafc. for mayor said he hadn't made up his mind which way he wil vote on the matler. Zoning Proposal Referring to the zoning pro posal that was knocked off the ballot by a court decision, Rapp continued by saying that he hadn't 'agreed with the proposal but had voted to 'put it on the ballot because.people'bad .want -J i^"-_'.'^il-nJL' ;-*i"i-''*".£:V5.**TV~ .*·· ed to vote"bn1t r ani lugri they were entitled 'to'do this i they wanted. He said, if elected mayor, hi would work lo have the follow ing changes made in zoning pro cedures: 1. Zoning public hearings would only be held al regular pre-set times; 2. The Planning Commission and City Counci -mist work closely together anc le would appoint a member ol the council to the planning commission to better achieve this; 1. All properties to be rezoned United Way Drive Nears One-Third Mark As of Friday morning, the United Way of Weld County iad obtained 32% per cent of Is $172,236 goal, with $56,417 n contributions.

All Greeley tusiness drive workers are ask- d to atlend. would be posted; 4. Only one public hearing, by the council would be held on a zoning peti lion; 5. All zoning decisions would be delayed one week aft er a public hearing for study by the council; 6. A zoning reques concerning a particular proper ly could be presented only once each year. Perchlik observed he (juite .. impressed .',. i I pledges' regarding changing zon ing procedures. "But I'd like tc ask, since he has been a mem her of the council for two years why he hasn't done somethinj aboul them before now?" This led to a discussion o Rapp's votes on the very con troversial rezoning of the John Todd property in the Sherwoot Park Subdivision to R-3. City Manager Vote The second question the two candidates were asked to answer was their position on pro- rosed election every six years on the question of retaining the city manager. Rapp pointed out that, under he City Charier, the manager vorks at the pleasure of the 'epprting that 100 per cent of position was that, by adopting Troops Battle Civilians In Tripoli BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) -Lebanese troops fought running battles with armed civilians and Arab guerrillas in the northern port of Tripoli today following a clash between demonstrators and security forces in which at least seven people were killed.

Another clashed ed, he would make it a point to neet with Ihe city manager at east three times a week to keep nformed about city business. "Through this, tighter con- rol could be exercised over the city manager and the council could be kept better informed in city operations." Rapp concluded by saying his he proposed ordinance, the cily nanager's job would be changed rom an adminislrative position o a quasi-political office and, therefore, he was opposed to it. Perchlik, however, declared le felt the proposal was a good me and was something that was (Continued on Page 6) vith security forces in the cityj quare, shortly before noon' Moslem prayers.
