Tr»4e Proposal Refected An unusual problem the council was faced with in 1962 was a proposal of the Karlun Corp. to trade three lots it owns plus $11.500 for two lots the city owns at the corner of 10th St. and 10th. The corporation desired the city lots as a site for a proposed six- story office and retail building Oiling $600.000. Council finally urned the propusal down. In June, the council suddenly ound itself confronted with the rohlem of providing some kind [ storm drainage system for the ecently annexed West Greeley area, after that area was hit by! series of bad floods following :orms. This resulted in city engineers reparing a low-cost drainage Ian for the area, to be financed y means of a special improve- icnt district.

The council in November decided to hold an lection Feb. 19 on the question ol ssuing $250,000 in revenue bonds build the proposed swimming acilities. Other problems with which the ouncil struggled during the year included whether to retain the walk lights which were installec n an experimental basis at 8th Ave. and 9th St. early in the ·ear and the barricade crectei )n 8th Ave. while the Greeley luilding and old post office wen being razed.
