St. Paul Bridge Preliminary drawings for the proposed bridge over Flat Rock, south of St. Paul, were presented by Clifford Seufort of Indianapolis, member of the engineering firm of Butler, Fairman & Seufort. , Seufort pointed out that it will be necessary to secure right-of- way grants before ariy work can be started. He said that seven procurements of land will be necessary, adding that these must be recorded. The request of Earl O'Nan for permission to lay testing highway material on a two and one- half mile .stretch of highway from Jackson School north to the Letts Road'was'granted by the commissioners. A representative of Roadways, Inc., O'Nan told- the commissioners that the company desired, to have a demonstration Stretpn pf 'highway, about .midway between Indianapolis and Cincinnati. This prompted the company to make the offer to the county commissioners here, he said. He added that half of the stretch would be paved with cadionic material and the other half with antionic material. Seek Dog Pound Need for a dog pound was cited by Smiley Fowler and Mrs. Barbara Innis, in appearing before the commissioners. They contended that the city and county should work together on this problem. Advising the commissioners of their investigation into the matter, they reported that Mayor Sherman G. Miers had suggested a temporary shelter on the present city disposal grounds and that Councilman Alden L. Westhafer had agreed to donate a cham link fence in the event a temporary shelter is established. They said that the state law permits cities to spend up to $5,000 for this purpose. It was suggested in the interest of development of a countywide approach to the problem i that a meeting be. held with representatives of boards in incorporated towns. The commissioners took the matter under advisement, awaiting future developments. After Jack Lux, representative of Public Service Indiana, had appeared before the board, the commissioners approved installation of two 7,000 lumen lights at the county highway garage. The cost will be $45 a year for each light. Payment will be made for six months in 1965 as installation was arranged by July 1- Thereafter, payment "will be made on an annual basis. Public Service Indiana with Lux as spokesman agreed to erect a pole and install the ights' by July 1. Requesting a blacktop surface on Road 1300 South from Road 500 West to Road 600 West in Sandcreek Township, Floyd Gatewood appeared before the commissioners. The road leads nto Harper. Gatewood reported that property owners have agreed to donate 20 feet on each side of the road and to move 'ences back. Specifying that a 40-foot right- of-way will be necessary, the commissioners agreed to work on the.ditches and the road.bed this fall and to provide a blacktop surface in the fall of 1966. Robert E. Eck of Shelbyvitte, recently designated as acting administrator at Decatur County Memorial Hospital, was introduced ,,tp' the commissioners by William Dr Gibson, retiring administrator. : John Smith of General Binding Company at Indianapolis appeared before the commissioners and demonstrated a binding machine for assessment books and other county records. He said this equipment is used by a number, of Indiana counties. The commissioners took the matter of procurement of this equipment under advisement. Mrs. Mobley was authorized by the commissioners to invest $5,200 in hospital funds in bonds for a six-mtfntft period. The commissioners granted a request to install a 210 ampere -line into the offices of the county treasurer and the county auditor for use in air-conditioning. Any unit for this purpose will be provided by the two officials. To Meet July 3 In view of the fact that Monday, July 5, will generally be observed as a holiday, the commissioners decided to hold their July meeting at 8 a. m. on Saturday, July 3. Advising the commissioners that their property adjacent to a subdivision at Sardinia is low, Henry Cooper and his son, Gordon Cooper, asked the commissioners to arrange for drainage of some type or installation of a culvert to prevent water on their property. Floyd Gatewood, who built the subdivision, was present. He told the commissioners he will take necessary steps to eliminate any difficulty. Paul H. Huber, county highway superintendent and engineer, was instructed to investigate and advise Gatewood as to what is required. Decatur-Franklin Road Difficulty in travel on a portion of the Decatur-Franklin County Line Road was considered by the commissioners.

It is estimated that 85 feet of culvert will be required at a cost of about S20 a foot. The. county commissioners agreed ,to buy the culvert, if .Fjanklin..County, will. .meet..certain requirements. These are: Franklin County will cut the hill down to a two-to-one slope; that the area would be prepared with a 40-foot right-of-way; and that the road bed will be 24 feet or more over the proposed culvert. In considering the status of a county truck that was damaged in a recent accident, the commissioners decided to retain the bed and to buy a new chassis.
