Local Notes i Q ty Co Unc j| purchases Lange & Runkel The downtown building on the southwest corner of Fourth and Citrus, now occupied by the Lange and Runkel Chevro'et agency, was acquired by t h e City Council last night for $90,000. The Council acted upon a rec ommendation from the Board of Parking Place Commissioners which suggested that the Council and the commission (on behalf of the parking district) acquire the land jointly, probably on a 50-50 financial basis. The building has 150 feet of frontage on Citrus avenue and is 130 feet deep back to the alley. It is expected that the property would be used to provide additional off-strcet parking for the downtown area, initially, at least. Lange and Runkel is building on Alabama street which the firm expects to occupy in the near future. Mr. and Mrs. Luke de Vries now of Los Angeles, are owners of the Citrus-Fourth property, and have offered it to the city for "no down payment" and terms at 6 per cent interest up to 25 years. To Demolish In the offer to the manager's office. Mr. deVrics agreed to demolish the present structure and clear the debris down to the cement slab at no cost to the city. And he also offered to defer payments on the principal for six months, if the city desires and to advance escrow costs if the city could not finance them at this time. R. P.

Korn Funeral jposal lo the Council along with Graveside services for Missithc Parking commission recommendation for acquisition Fair Price He noted that Raymond Canterbury, a Parking commission member but also a professional appraiser, said the price was a fair ono. Mayor Charles C. Parker also pointed out that the city acquired the Robin Hood Sports wear building on the opposite corner for more than $70,000, and that it was only 50 x 130, or one-third the size of the de- Vries property. Planning Director W. C. Schindler reported that he had consulted with Victor Grucn Associates, the firm which is conducting the 701 Study of downtown Redlands, and that this firm said the properly should be acquired as the first step in getting "open space" between the City Hall and Safety Hall. In Civic Center The property is within what is shown as the "Civic Center Complex" on the city's master plan. Because of its central location, it was noted that it could provide parking for the library, the bowl and churches, in addition lo businesses. The Council moved swiftly on the proposal last night since Mr. Mcrritt reported that in his negotiations with Mr. de Vries he was only able to get a 10-day option which expires this weekend. As a result, the exact number of parking spaces which can be created on the property is unknown, but guesses ranged from 30 to 70. Preliminary thinking was that the property might well be used for monthly parking which would be helpful to the telephone company, businesses and the city hall itself. Frames Motion Councilman William T. Hartzell framed the motion for acquisition which stipulated that the city would pay for the property at the rate of $3,600 per year or more on principal, with interest at 6 per cent, payable quarterly. J Mayor Parker and Mr. Merritt were later named lo a special committee to consult with the Parking commission on how the city and parking district would split the purchase payments. It was emphasized, however, that while the city will acquire title, the parking district would manage and operate the lot. Depending upon the number of parking spaces, it was expected that income from the lot would pay a good share of the acquisition costs. bldg. NEW CITY ACQUISITION — The Redlands City Council voted unanimously last night to acquire this 150x 130 building at Citrus and Fourth from Mr. and Mrs. Luke DeVries for $90,000. The city and parking district will jointly finance the purchase over a 25-year period. The building will be torn down after Lange and Runkel move to their new building and the city and parking district expect to use the property for parking purposes as part of the civic center.

Redlands Blvd. Redlands On a split vote, the City Council last night agreed to initiate annexation proceedings for a 13.7-acre parcel on Edgemont drive on the city's southerly boundary. But it was emphasized that special circumstances existed for this property and that a special study will likely be undertaken before any additional properties in this area are considered for annexation. The city had previously turned down annexation for the laud on the basis that it was a spot annexation and would br of little benefit to the city. Morris Singer, one of the own ers, had maintained previously, and reiterated last night, that he and his associates had bought the land on the assump tion that 1946 and 1961 conferences with the city manager's office meant that the city would annex and serve the land. R. P. Merritt Jr. reported, however, that research by the public works department showed that prior agreements actually referred to property to the east of the land under con sideration. But John Shone, director of public works, did report that the acreage could be served with city facilities but the de velopers would have to pay some $8,000 for an eight-inch water main extension. Mr. Singer said this cost would not be a deterrent and that he understood water stock would have to be acquired to satisfy city requirements. Hartzell Opposes Councilman William T. Hartzell still contended, however that the area was not desirable for annexation and that Mr Singer should have protected Leo Hiti dies in Yucaipa, aged 73 Leo Hiti, a 23-year resident of Yucaipa, died in that community yesterday at the age of 73.

The Council empha sized that it has a clear policy on this for outside-city resi dents since "city taxpayers pay for these services and should have exclusive right to use them." Approved an allotment of S375 to permit finance director Richard Anderson to attend a finance officers annual business conference in Dallas. himself by purchasing the prop-ivard, to be allowed to connect erty with the condition that an nexation be accomplished. And on that basis, coupled with a feeling that other water service in the area would be impaired, he moved that the an nexation be denied for the sec ond time. He was supported by Waldo Burroughs but Councilman Norman Martinez, and Robert Wagner opposed the denial and Mayor Parker cast the decid ing vote with them. M a y o r Parker said the Council had waited for a report on the capa bility of water service from Mr. Shone and "we should accept that report." Councilmen Burroughs and Hartzell also voted against the resolution of intention to annex. On the advice of the city attorney, it will be annexed as uninhabited land. Mayor parker noted, however, that a matter still must go to the Local Agencies Formation commission for hearings before the city can annex it and that this will add about six weeks to the proceedings. Other Action In other actions, the City Council: Awarded a $14,469 contract to Roscoe Moss company of Los Angeles for the new water well in Sylvan Park. Moss was sec ond low bidder by $229 but had promised completion of the project nearly two months ahead of Ray Roberts, the low- bidder. The faster time would permit the well-drilling to be done before heavy use of the park starts. Awarded to Pipe Linings, Inc of Los Angeles a contract for cement motar-lining 12-and 16- inch steel water mains. It was low bidder. To Aid Jaycees Agreed to allocate $250 to the Junior Chamber of Commerce to help the club conduct the Redlands Orange Show Queen contest.

Jury finds Beaver innocent in dog case A Redlands jury declared former state Assemblyman Jack Beaver not guilty of violating the city's leash law ordinance because there was no "willful intention" to allow the dog to run loose. The trial began at 10 a.m. today in Redlands Justice court and the jury of 10 women and 2 men began deliberating at 1:30 p.m. after hearing testimony from only two people. The leash law ordinance prohibits dog owners from permitting their pets to run at large. Although scores of Redlanders have been cited for lease law violation since strict enforcement began in November 1962, there has never been a jury trial. The offense usually draws a $10 fine. Beaver asked for a jury trial after he received a citation October 4. Charged with Crime His attorney, Russell Goodwin, told the court that Beaver was defending himself in this "small matter" because he had been charged with a crime and that he felt the charge was not justified. Beaver testified that the family pet. Freckles, squirmed out the front door and ran off when he (Beaver) went outside to pick up the morning newspaper. The defendant stated that he and other members of the family searched the neighborhood for the dog, but they were un able to locate him. Was it Willful? Key issue in the case was whether Beaver had "willfully permitted the brown and white cocker spaniel to run at large. Judge Ben G. Alexander instructed the jury that mere negligence or error was not willful intent" and that the defendant should be acquitted ii it could not be determined be yond a doubt that he actively consented to the dog's wander ings on that particular occas sinn. Prosecuting Attorney James Cramer of the District Attorney's office, contended that Beaver's failure to close the front door constituted "willful conduct" resulting in the dog's getting loose. The only witness called by Cramer was Redlands Humane Officer Cecil Pattison. Pattison related that he had spotted Freckles running loose about 8 a.m. on October 4 and that be followed the dog to the Beaver residence at 138 Marcia street. He testified further that when he contacted the defendant later in the morning to issue a cita tion. Beaver admitted: "I deserve this. I've been dealt with fairly and squarely." Cramer pointed out that the dog had been a problem for many months and had drawn complaints from neighbors. According to court records. Beaver received a second leash law citation on November 4 — one month later — and posted $10.50 bail which he later forfeited. Members of the jury panel were: Margaret Buoye, Barbara Bowersox, Ethel Barnes, Luther Holden, Louise Desplaines, Doris Codwallder. And Robert Devore, Aileen D. Combs, Betty Hardy, Phyllis Keim, Elizabeth Brummeler and Laura Burgeson.

(Daily Facts photo) Armacost speaks Western Heights hearing on stock issue continued A public hearing to determine whether the Western Heights Water company should be permitted to issue additional shares of water stock was continued to March 3 at 10 a.m. after a day-long hearing in Los Angeles yesterday. The hearing was conducted by the State's Division of Corporations. Western Heights, once an irrigation company, is now primarily in the business of serving domestic water to shareholders on both sides of the Sunset drive loop just east of the Redlands city limits and in the Dunlap Acres area. The Board of Directors of the company proposed in December that new stock be issued so that present shareholders could get sufficient water for their needs and so that other landowners within the district might get shares to provide water for lands now non-water bearing.
