David 'nimbull, a representative of the City Beautiflcation Committee, requested the fSOO for landscaping and care of the public square this summer. Turnbull said, "The appearance of our town depends a great deal on what our visitors see in the center of it." Turnbull pointed out that several shrubs planted in the past few years have died and that the public square also needs s6me re-sodding. The money for the new shrubs, sod and care was ap^ proved after it was determin* ed that all plantings would be low enough that they would not obstruct moteriits' views. Mayor George Bersted reported that the dog leash law will be in effect from April ^ to June 10. The leash law is instituted each spring to protect newly planted flowers and gardens. Bersted also noted that anyone wishing to contact the dogcatcher could do so by calling the police department or the landfill office. The week of April 23-28 was de(;lared both Chamber of Commerce Week and Clean-up, Fix- up Week. Alderman Itobert McVey said there would be some changes in connection with Clean-up, Fix*up Waek. As usual, the extra trash pickups will be made on regular garbage pickup days. In the past the members of the pickup crews would remove anything people placed on the boulevards. This sometimes included large tree limbs, trees and piles of trash. McVey said that this year only tree limbs which were tied into bundles would be removed and that all other trash must be in containers or bags. He said, however, that contrary to regular pickup collections, trash could be placed on the boulevards In large cardboard boxes for the special pickup. "We just don't want anything so large the men can't handle it easily nor placed on the boulevard in such a way that they have to rake and clean up the area," McVey said. Bersted reported to the alder* men that a decision on how to use the recently authorieed grant of |484,000 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development will be delayed for a while. The grant was received in response to an application for money to construct another water well for the city. It will be used to increase the city's water supply but the possibility now exists tliat it may be more feasible for the city to tap into the Galcsburg water line rather than drill a well. Bersted said the city engineers need more time to develop their plans before making a definite decision between a well or the water line. Bersted also reported that the motor for Well 7 should be repaired and returned in about three weeks. He said the firm doing the repair work informed him this week that the only part of the motor they could salvage was the housing. Among the people attending the council meeting were Harold Hubbard and a group of students from Central Junior High School. HuHbard, a teacher at the school, annually visits a council meeting with students who will later participate in Civics Day.

Paying money to warm up sparrows is for the birds r~i -n. ?9 and other thoughts on getting more comfort for your heating do ars if your heating bills seem to be going through the roof every winter, that's probably where most of the problem is. Because without proper insulation, you're spending money to melt snow off your roof and keep birds warm. Proper insulation pays for itself quiclcly and will save you important money every year thereafter. • Th« home needs an alKaround blanket of insulation: beneath the roof, In all outside walls and under floors over unhealed areas. An insulation contractor will recommend the proper type and thickness. Proper insulation saves on air conditioning as well as heating costs. It helps maintain a comfortable level of humidity and results in a quieter home. • Storm windov^ and weath«r>stripping around doors and windows will also help cut heating bills and increase your comfort.
