Valesano asked to haul the scrap. Police Chief Dominic Valesano was then asked if the public is informed as to the receipts and expenditures of this drive and he said no. Mackie said he thought they should receive a concise report. Valesano said they would drop the matter, as he believed the police had done a great favor In promoting this trip. Councilman Emil Movrich sided with Mackie stating that as long as city trucks are involved that such a report should be presented. Council man Walter Nun i maker asked why there was such a large "hullabaloo" about something that had been going on for years. He asked: "Don't we trust anyone any more?" Gus Seppa also stated he believed that such a report should be made when city equipment is involved. The police chief was offered trucks by volunteers a request for representation at the Municipal Employes Retire-! ment System meeting at Munis- j ing Thursday, July 15, at 2 p.m.! A lengthy discussion followed' the reading of a letter from thei Michigan State Highway Depart-, ment in regard to the proposed two-way system here which will' be part of the state trunk line in 1967-68 and request for a res-i olutipn to be adopted in regard i to this matter. On the vote for| adoption of the resolution, Mov- rich voted no, stating the plans are indefinite, and Mackie also voted no. Nunimaker and Linnj voted yes, and the motion wasi lost as there was a tie. On a! motion by Movrich that the high-j way department be sent a letter asking them to present definite plans at once, all voted yes except Nunimaker, who said this matter had been aired on several occasions and he could see no reason for postponement. A letter was read from the State Health Department in regard to the sewage plant, and the matter was postponed to the executive session following the meeting. In regard to construction of a boat landing near the VFW, with liabilities and leases to be involved, the matter was tabled j on hand June 30, 1964, as re- j fleeted in the budget. Based on estimated tax collection at $136,000 and estimated student membership and other estimated factors, the budget anticipated receipts of $324,449 and expenditures of $336,256. Current tax collection was actually about $6,000 more than anticipated; de- linquert taxes about $2,000 more and library fund and other unexpected revenue accounted for the additional $10,000 in receipts. Expenditures were about $8,700 n the report should also contain the number of hours on their own time, spent by the police in these collections for the boys. He also stated that city trucks are used only periodically for this use.
