Land Purchased For New One-Way Alley Ordinance windfall Telephone Office To Undergo Further Study City Council met Monday afternoon for their regular meeting and to consider passage of ordinances 311 and 312 concern- traffic. The councilmen voted 1 to approve ordinance 311 making Court Street one-way south on the third and final reading. Notice of date the ordinance goes into effect will be announced later by City Council. Parking arrangements for Court Street were discussed and it was decided to leave parking as it now stands with possible changes later. Mayor Ray Rench read two letters from some local citizens who requested that Ordinance 312 be reconsidered. The ordinance calls for making the alley between Main street and West Street one-way south to the intersection of that alley with the alley between Jefferson and Madison streets. The letters stated that it was felt the alley should be made one-way all the way through instead of just to. the intersection. Councilmen discussed the possibility and considered the heavy flow of traffic in that area as well as the narrow width of the alley. It was decided to study the situation further before coming to a vote on the matter. Many complaints 'and criticisms have been brought to the attention of City Council in regard to the *No left turn' sign at the Jim ..Dandy Drive-in. Individuals have aired complaints that this sign is not enforced and have questioned, why. According to the councilmen, the sign was erected- without the authorization from the State. Since the sign concerns traffic on the State Highway (Road 28), city and county law officers have no authority to enforce the sign until the State gives approval for its enforcement. It is unknown as to who placed the sign up since neither the state nor the city have made it illegal to make the left turn. However, the coun-, cilmen are studying the possibility of easing traffic congestion by stopping all left hand turns except at intersection and alleys. The State must first be notified and give consent to enforce any such ruling before the city can act with authority due to some of the areas being located on State Roads. City claims numbers 115 to 137 (Continued on page six) Extended telephone service was discussed by two representatives of the telephone company serv- Two Plead Guilty To Thifd Degree Burglary Charge uien / Dtvey Utility Board Opens Bids On Chlorination Facility Members of the Tipton Utility Board Monday afternoon opened eight sealed bids on an advertised project for the City of Tipton on the Tipton, Utilities Board for New Chlorination facilities.
