City moves to halt batch plant operation Court action against a ready' mix concrete batch plant operation said to be illegal on seven counts was authorized by t h e City Council at a special meeting yesterday. City Attorney Edward F. Taylor was instructed to seek an injunction against the Pomona Ready - Mix Company ui the event that other remedies fail. A report on the batch plant operation was made to the Council yesterday by City Manager R. P. Merritt, Jr. He said the ready-mix company had recent ly established a batch plant on Dill Lumber Company property, abutting the Redlands Freeway. Seven Violations Merritt reported that the oper^ ation was illegal in seven respects: 1—The operation is not permitted by right of zone. 2—No special use occupancy permit has been issued. 3—No on-site business license has been issued: 4—No permit has been issued for connection to a city fire hydrant and use of the water. 5—No water meter has been attached to the line from the hydrant 6—There is no street or driveway approach to the property. The company has been driving its ready-mix trucks across Southern California Edison company property. 7—None of the property improvements usually required have been installed. Merritt stated that the plaU' ning director had previously advised the company's Pomona office by registered mail that thn operation should be discontinued until the proper permission had been granted. He said the notices had been disregarded. The company previously had obtained a "job site" business license to prepare concrete mix for a subdivision at Brockton and Church streets. That license was limited to work for the tract. Accordmg to Merritt, the Edison company plans to barricade its property to prevent access by the mix trucks. Taylor stated that he would wait on initiating the court ac^ tion to see what effect the Edi son company baricades w i 1 have. "We may be able to accomplish our purpose without spending public funds," he said. Mayor Charles C. Parker asserted: "You can perhaps attribute most of the violations to ignorance, but there's no excuse for hooking up to a city fire hydrant without getting the pro per authority." Redlanders in Alaska, no word as yet The thoughts of many local people today turned to relatives in Alaska and to former Red- landers who are now there. Gordon Bninton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Brunton, 737 South Buena Vista street, is currently at Fort Richardson, Anchorage, on two weeks military reserve duty, and presumably safe. Mr. and Mrs.' Brunton here, were more concerned about Gordon's wife who re mained at the Gordon Brunton home in Valdez — a commum- ty that is said to have suffered severe damage. The Rev, Gerald Churchill, former pastor of the Congrega tional church of Redlands, and widely known here, moved to Anchorage upon leaving Redlands, continuing his ministeri-, al work. Mr. and Mrs. Earl Andriese and their child also reside in Anchorage where he has been in sales work. He was formerly in the city planmng department in Redlands and in Anchorage. Mrs. Andriese, the former Diane Pettet, worked at the city hall switchboard several years ago and was also a former Miss Redlands." John L. Anglin and his wife and two sons are living in Kodiak, Alaska, an island some distance southwest of Anchorage where the quake was cen tcred. He is the son of the Wilbur AngUns, 1079 Kevin. Ronald Stutt to manage new swimming pools Ronald L. Stutt has been hired to manage the new swimming pools at Redlands Senior high school during whatever part of the summer they arc usable. Contract for construction of| the two pools has been awarded to Swen Larson and it is hoped the pools can be completed in lime for some use during the summer months. School Trustees had agreed at that time that from a recreation standpoint, activity at the high school pools should be co ordinated with the overall summer recreation program but that a pool manager should be employed. Stutt, who teaches U. S. history, is also the varsity swimming coach at RHS. His appointment was affirmed by the School Board this week. In his capacity as pooi man- sger, he will have complete charge -of the two high school pools and will develop a program in cooperation with Bob Chambers who will be director of the swimming program for the city. In all hTccIihood, recreation will, be in charge of the new Recreation commission by next year but organizational prob Jems were too great to be accomplished in the limited time available so far. Agreement Approved The Recreation commission does exist, however, and School Trustees this week approved the enabling agreement provid tag for financial participation by the school district. This agreement is now expected to go to the City Council, probably at the first meeting in ApriL It provides, generally, for a 50-50 sharing of all costs with all facilities of both city and school district to be made avail able for community recreation uses. It also sets up the organiza tion of the Recreation coramls sion wWch now consists of Bill Klausner of the UR faculty as member-at-large and chairman. A. R. SchulU Jr. and Richard L. Scott as school board mem bers and Robert Wagner and William Hartzell as City Coun cil members. This, particular, membership arrangejnent is expected to be revised once the commissioo js on steady footing and moving| ahead to provide for broader community representation. PORTABLE BATCH PLANT — This is the portable equipment a Pomona ready-mix firm moved onto a strip of land near the easterly end of High avenue off of Ninth street. The City Council yesterdoy took exception to this plant since it apparently was using city water out of a hydrant, was operating without city licenses and contrary to zone. An injunction to halt the operation was authorized but the Southern California Edison company, which owns tha adjoining substation, sold it would halt access to the botch plant, which has been across Edison land (without permission.)
