Rook said the proposed reconstruction of the combined sanitary and storm water sewer would be restricted to a 200-foot area east from Onondaga Creek in W. Fayette Street. The trunk line sewer is one of the longest in the city, serving the entire area from Onondaga Creek easterly to Seeley Road. It is a 33 by 60-inch brick structured sewer and it dates from 1867.

Indications are that BOCES, despite $2 billion in true real property valuation in its 19 member districts, will select a relatively lengthy bonding term — perhaps 25 or 30 years. Federal aid estimated at $1 million for the two occupational centers would bring the bond issue amount down to $12.9 million. The cost, in terms of its impact on local school district taxpayers, would be "pennies per $1,000" of assessed valuation, BOCES officials maintain. Based on a 30-year bond term, the payment cost a year would be about $1,020,000. The aim of the proposal, said Henry, is to "get us out of the rental business." All local BOCES facilities are rented on a year-to-year basis. Rental costs for the 337,000 square feet sought in the bond issue could run as high as $2 million a year, said Henry. Current rental costs are about $300,000 for facilities, which BOCES officials characterize as inadequate. The proposal involves three buildings on two sites. One site, on state school and near the Route 5 bypass Rains Cool County A line of thunderstorms latf night brought much needed relief from the heat wave bet caused problems for firemen, police and power company crews.

Deputv Engineer Richard F. Kun-der said repairs to the break near a railroad overpass at 7th North Street moved along rapidly. The city was able to increase its supply of water from Lake Ontario by -tightening valves/' Only a few places in the immediate vicinity of the main break were stil affected late last night, Kunder said. The break in the pipe, a city line, was traced to a 15-foot section of the 20-inch line. It was carrying Lake Ontario water which the city has been taking in an amount of about 10 million gallons daily to bolster the Skaneateles Lake supply during the long hot spell. Use of water in the city and dis tricts supplied from the city's system has mounted to 64 million gallons a day while 90-degree heat has persisted. Of the quantity being consumed, Skaneateles has been furnishing about 58 milllion gallons daily while the city has doubled the 5 million gallons it would ordinarily take daily in an emergency from the Lake Ontario system: In this way, the city has been able to provide water to meet all needs in thehotdrvsoell.

Investigators said they had not determined why the mausoleum of Henry Keep was vandalized and his body removed from its coffin at Brookside Cemetery here. Keep died July 30, 1869, leaving an estate estimated at $5 million. Investigators said they were trying to determine whether he was buried with any valuables, but they noted that records of that type were sketchy. Keep's remains were left on the floor of the mausoleum, and the vandals tore open a passageway to reach a basement, where two other bodies were buried. Those caskets were sealed in a wall, and efforts to chisel open one of them were unsuccessful* investigators said. The bre#k-in occurred sometime over the Labor Day weekend and was discovered late Tuesday. Earlier this summer, a grave in the Herkimer County Town of Russia was opened and the body of a man was stolen. Authorities did not link the two incidents. Lightning also kept city and county firemen busy checking on struck houses, trees and utility poles. County Fire Control personnel said at least three houses apparently had been struck by lightriing, but resulting 1 fires were minor. Most of the traffic accidents . reported during the storms involved only one car, usually with driver losing control and the auto skidding into a pole, guardrail or bridge abutment. No serious injuries were reported. Temperatures dropped 12 degrees in the two-hour storm period, but the mercury still hovered around 70 degrees near midnight. Yesterday's session was ;e Thompson Road center.
