Board of Control is faced with an election-year ;4lilemma of gigantic proportions today. City Solicitor Poh Hambling has advised the Board in a confidential report that the city has no legal grounds to appeal an Ontario Supreme Court order quashing a water bill surcharge that netted the administration $500,000 annually. . And the fire-member Board, apparently, has different, views on what should be done to recoup the threatened loss of revenue. One of them favors returning the moneys collected and imposing a supplementary tax levy late in the year of approximately two mills.- - Another favors a rebate If the money can be found surplus in various city accounts. But the most strength leans to holding onto the money and applying to the Ontario Legislature for a private bill legalizing the collection.

One way or the other, the administration needs the money , to pay for the new sewerage system and treatment plant that cost $26,000,000. A decision was to have been made behind closed doors Tuesday, but the meeting wis cancelled after a blow-up at the open session of the Board. It will now likely be made on Thursday with the decision transmitted for Council action - at the next regular meeting Sept. 8. Former Chief Justice J.

' MAYOR'S ESTIMATE Mayor Whitton has estimat ed the "error" could mean a loss to the city of $1,160,000 the amount collected since the levy was imposed la June, 1963 or earmarked for collec tion this year and, in effect, already spent. ; .. That Is equivalent to two' mill on the general tax rate and that amount would be neceanry in a special levy should the surcharge money be returned. ; .
