(Staff photo) Four Candidates Back D owntown Planning By Bob Gunsolley Journal Staff Writer Four of the 14 City Council candidates indicated Thursday they go along with the present council policy of keeping large outlying shopping centers out of Sioux City until downtown redevelopment is completed. John T. "Ted" Alvey, Mayor George Cole, Gary Lipshutz and Robert Rivin were guests at Thursday's meeting of the Exchange Club at the KD Stockyards Station. The shopping center issue came up during a question period after the candidates made five-minute opening statements. Alvey said that although the shopping center question is likely to be a hot election issue, he's convinced that the city must meet its commitments downtown. Provision of adequate parking is essential to downtown development, he said. A strong downtown tax base is needed by all local taxpayers, Rivin said, and added that District Court Cases Municipal Building Liquor Charge (Forfeiture) Philip Moran Lucent, 30, Wichita, Kan., charged with drinking alcoholic beverage in. public place Tuesday afternoon; defendant failed to appear in court and forfeited bond of $25. Assault and Battery Edward James Thompson, 32, Route 1, Lawton, Iowa, charged with assault and battery on Richard C. Fox, no address listed on information, Sept. 11, pleaded guilty; fined $75, including costs. Two Traffic Charges (One Dismissal) Dave Allen Keleher, 19, Sioux City, pleaded guilty to charge of speeding Sept. 5; fined $40, including costs. Additional charge of reckless driving same date dismissed by court on motion of city for lack of sufficient evidence. Courthouse Guilty Verdict Janice Ivory, charged with delivery of controlled substance, pleaded innocent, found guilty by jury; sentencing set for Oct. 27. Arraignment William L. Heck, 36, Homer, Neb.; charged with OMVI (second offense), arraigned and given to Oct. 27 to answer charge. Correction The price recently paid by the city in the purchase of five additional acres for the Riverside sanitary landfill was $8,250. The figure used in a story in Thursday's paper was in error. downtown serves as a sort of "psychological anchor" that keeps Sioux City a single community rather than a lot of separate areas. There's no way Sioux City can support four regional shopping centers, he said. Lipshutz also expressed agreement that Sioux City must meet its commitments down- town, but said the shopping center issue is a good issue because it shows people are concerned and want things to happen in the city. He said there is a need for more neighborhood shopping centers. Mayor Cole, the only one of the four that has had a hand in the city's shopping center policy, denied that it is an effort to eliminate competition for downtown. He said he's all for competition, but said downtown first must get a major retailer to anchor the west end of the central business district before outlying shopping centers be allowed to come in. When questioned about Brandeis commitment to build in the Badgerow block, Cole said it is definite that Brandeis will open its store here by November of 1977. Although the three non-incumbent candidates went along with the city's shopping center policy, they had other criticisms of the present administration. Alvey said the present council has a communication problem with residents of the various neighborhoods. He said he Spagetti . . . Chicken . . . Fish Fry . . . Children 12 and Vi price. I i . would improve that situation by selecting representatives of each neighborhood to keep the council advised on problems in the area. Rivin said that while the council conducts its business in the open, it is often hard to get information from the various departments. Ail city offices should have public information immediately available to the public, Rivin said, but added that instead, they are often restrictive and obstructive. Lipshutz said he thinks coun- cil members should scrutinize closely the city administration and have the "toughness" to make any changes it finds necessary. He advocated full financial disclosure, not only by the city council, but also by the city manager and his staff. Mayor Cole said he would like the opportunity to continue making the tough decisions he said the council has been making. Under the present administration, he said, Sioux City, has a good record of growth and progress. The city is revitalizing its physical assets, he said, and is taking care of housing needs with leased housing and housing rehabilitation. He cited the city's triple A credit rating and a recent survey giving Sioux City a good rating on the quality of life here. Delegates to the recent meeting of the Iowa League of Municipalities here were im- pressed with the way Sioux City was preserving its downtown area, he said. coffee gallery DINNER SPECIALS .
