Open Evenings from Dec. 17th Holmes & Company Lonaconing >ruperty and according to ou •ecords, Mr. Hall replied to th Vlayor and Commissioners o Westernport that it would be nee essary to submit a set of plans fo he sewer line in order to obtai a permit: as you are doubtles aware to obtain a permit from Mr Hall, detailed construction plan ind specifications for any sanitary iroject is required. "However, in order to take car if health hazards there should no 3e any trouble and delay in plac ng the 500 feet of sewer line tha ou are ready to start. A smal letailed sketch will get you a per nit to do this and we feel sure Mr Hall will give you a permit to star his work if you request it." The following reply was orderec ent to Dr. Frantz: Town is still interested in the lacing of .the 500-feet of the 48 inch sewer pipe, but one of the outstanding obstacles that we have been unable to overcome is the se curing in writing of .? right-of-way for the placing of this pipe. If we are able to get a right-of-way from Mr. Wilson we will be glad to furnish a detailed sketch of this project to Mr. Hall for approval. How- everr if the state insists upon s separation of the sewerage from the draining water as suggested by Mr. Hall, the Mayor and Commissioners feel that it would be advantageous to all parties concerned to engineer a comprehensive sewerage system and spend what funds we have toward completing that system. • • "At the suggestion of Mr. Hall n a letter of October 18, we have engaged the firm of Glace and Glace, engineering firm to study .his problem and Mr. Hall has jeen advised of this action. No definite action can be taken jy the Mayor and Commissioners until we receive in writing the right-of-way document which has )een prepared and has been in Mr. Wilson's hands for several months." The city; officials also ordered hat a copy of the letter be sent to Hall, Wilson, Glace and Glace and he Allegany County Commis- ioners. .
