Vets' Families to Get Baskets Council Takes ' Board to Act No Action on Mayor's Veto No action was taken by the Austin City Council Monday night on Mayor Hansen's veto of the ordinance to placing street sealcoatlng undef assessment in • program intended to encourage construction of streets of a more permanent type. Alderman Ernest Diederich, street, committee chairman, said his only regret was that "the • •• «• Citizens Advisory Committee had an additional $100,000 a year under worked hard in preparing their! another increase which went into report," that he felt it was "a' effect Nov> 27 ' Smith explained, good ordinance" and "in gratitude) Thc de P ar tment has absorbed and fair play" to the committee ! more than four lncreases s "«e he had wanted to see the ordln-! 1952 ' but thls last hike makes an on Gas Rate Hike Tuesday A hike in the |ai rate and adjustments for steam and water will be acted on next Tuesday at a special meeting of the Austin Utilities Board.

Based on Committee Study Passed, 4-3, Dec. 5, the ordin- ;ance was based on a study by I the advisory committee and included a provision that seal-coating of streets and major repairs be done under assessment of prop- jcrty owners rather than out of the general fund. It also provided that in the paving of streets, property • *O *** wn WI.M9) ui UUCl bY Christmas baskets will be pack- owners be given up to 10 years to ed for 18 needy veteran families, the Veterans Council decided Monday. The packing will be done at VFW Hall Tuesday morning. Christmas cards will be sent to all veterans who are ill, either at home or in a hospital. It was announced that Co. H sent 25 wrapped gifts for children in lieu of the unit's customary gift exchange. the meeting. It was reported that 16 baskets of food and one box of canned goods were sent out for Thanksgiving. The Congregational Pilgrim Fellowship contributed 404 cans of food to the council. In addition to this, three quilts were sheets, . cles were prepared. new water towers and four wells built in recent yers. Austin has the lowest rate of any comparable area city, members said, and some adjustment is needed to insure continued expansion. The board approved bids by Usem Chevrolet and International Harvester for two trucks. Accepted was Usem's bid of $2002,50 for a ladder truck. Other bidders were Fordtown, $2,255.55 and International Harvester, $2,010. International Harvester's bid of pay, instead of the present three years.

TUB., DEC. 16, 1958 PAGE 8 Council Goes Slow on Purchasing Truck Austin councilmen will wait to buy a new garbage truck until they decide definitely on whether the city will stay in the garbage collection business. A motion to advertise for bids for a new truck was held up Monday night pending an investigation in which a report will be made at the January meeting. When the question of buying a truck arose, Alderman - at - Large Wayne Austin pointed out that last February the Council considered dropping the garbage business which was operating in the red. He said he thought the Council should make a decision before considering purchase of more equipment. Alderman Nelson said this was also his understanding. Looks Like a Profit Alderman Paul Johnson, chairman of the ordinance committee which is in charge of the garbage department, said "As far as I can see we are making money — probably $5,000 to $6,000 better than last year." He said it was the only, department in the city that can! be self-sustaining. j Alderman Diederich asked! whether the new garbage truck would be bought from garbage collection revenue or would be taken from the general fund. Johnson said it would come from the general fund but that any profits from garbage collection would go into the general fund. Alderman George Weiss'said he thought the city should continue in the garbage buisness. Better Holiday Service , An effort will be made to pro- over tt plaints said City Recorder Wetland, have been on holiday collections. The many holidays that fall on Thursdays, has caused most of the trouble, said Johnson. The garbage crew ^ works a 10-hour day on each of four days — Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Collection la eliminated on holidays which this year have been mostly on Thursdays. The alderman suggested that the crews work on the Saturday which follows Christmas for which they would receive their regular time plus time and a half overtime. He estimated this would cost the city about $400. He put his suggestion in the form of a motion which was approved, with a dissenting vote cast by Alderman Austin. The extra garbage pickup will be made on Dec. 27, as an experiment to see if this solves the holiday collection problems. 200 Attend Youth Rally two hundred Latin* Leafuert of St. Ola!
