Urges City: Alter Fund Proposals By John Fryar "Des Moines City Manager Richard Wilkey has recommended not spending the money the Neighborhood Development Program's Central Advisory Board has proposed for financing several programs, such as flood-proofing houses in the Four Mile Creek area and subsidizing the Evelyn Davis Inter-Urban Health Clinic. But Wilkey also recommended increasing the advisory board's funding proposals for such projects as relocating residents from the Vandalia area and enforcing the city's housing code in a number of rehabilitation neighborhoods. .The manager outlined his recommendations in a letter to City Council members about the advisory board's plan for spending f 3,659,657 in federal Housing and Urban Development funds during the year beginning next Dec. 1. Under the changes recommended by Wilkey, the total amount would be the same. . The council Monday night is to conduct its final public hearing on the plan and decide on any amendments to it so that staff members can formally apply for the money. In his letter to the council, Wilkey recommended the city: Eliminate a $4,500 project to study the effects of building and housing codes on rehabilitation efforts. Such a study "has merit" but can be done "in house" without the $4,500 expense, Wilkey said. Cut out a $40,000 program to subsi . dize the flood-proofing of houses in the Four Mile area. Wilkey said this program may be premature because the Planning Department is working on a floodway zone for the creek area. v Eliminate a $25,000 project designed to improve housing conditions for the elderly in the Southeast Neighborhood, Wilkey said this project also is prema- ture because feasibility studies have ! not been finished. ( Slash $50,000 from a $52,500 propos al for reducing flood hazards along I Four Mile Creek. Wilkey noted that 1 $75,000 of this year's Neighborhood De-i velopment funds already are committed to a similar project and that the additional allocation would have a ; "marginal effect" on the flood problems. The cut would leave $2,500 in ; 1977 funds for an early warning flood ! aiert system for residents. : .Cut $25,191 from a $100,191 amount . for. day care programs. Wilkey said the , project should continue at its present I level rather than be increased because : of fewer total funds available for all ! projects next year. ; .Trim $30,500 from a $154,993 pro- ; posal for programs for the elderly. Wilkey said the lower amount should still allow for enough local matching funds to keep such projects as mobile meals going at their present levels. ! : Eliminate a $25,000 subsidy for 'the Evelyn Davis Inter-Urban Health Clin- i ic. .Wilkey noted that because of the un- certainty of the clinic's future and "the I proximity of hospitals in the area," this 1 subsidy should not be made. 'Add $113,691 to the $500,000 the j advisory board earmarked for the Van- i dajia relocation project on the south' east side. Wilkey said the additional ' amount would relocate five more fami I lies that have said they want to get out of the area, which is becoming industri alized. -Add $86,500 for a housing code en ; forcement project that the advisory board had not earmarked for continua-; tion beyond this year. Wilkey said hous-; ing inspections and enforcement are necessary in the city's concentrated neighborhood rehabilitation and urban ! renewal programs. i Southeast Side 'Not Short-changed' In a separate letter to the City Coun cil, City Manager Wilkey disagreed with contentions of the Pioneer-Colum bus Neighborhood Board that the south east Des Moines area had been short IN BEAUTIFUL Woodland Park The Good Life!

Wilkey said the Central Advisory Board included in its plan a number of Pioneer-Columbus' priority projects, such as subsidies for special assessment as street and sewer construction projects, home plumbing hookups to sewer and water, the paving of S.E. Fifth Street, housing rehabilitation and New Horizons job training programs for youths. While a number of specific Pioneer- Columbus requests were, not in the plan, Wilkey said: "Given the fact that there are less funds available than last year, resulting in many other requests for new programs not being funded and a number of major ongoing programs being cut significantly, it does not appear that the Pioneer-Columbus neighborhood was completely ignored by the Central Advisory Board as contended." He said Pioneer-Columbus' requests for such projects as a drug abuse program, an emergency warning siren, a day care facility and added parking at its corrimunity center could be considered if additional or unspent federal funds are available by the end of next year.
