^ • In a special session of the Al-> gona city council, last Thursday evening, Mayor Linda Clapsaddle vetoed an ordinance which Wbula have established a tity • planning commission. The ordinance' had its third reading the preceding week. "A motion made by Councilman Vic Parsons that the council override the mayor's veto failed to get a second. Basically, the veto by Mrs Clapsaddle took place begause of a clause in the planning commission ordinance which would have given the appointive members of that commission power to approve or disapprove of installation of parking meters here. In a memorandum read to the council by the mayor, Mrs Clap* saddle said that "my reasons for this action-are that the city council recently voted 5 to 1 for adop tioh of a parking i meter ordinance.. .. 1 feel that if a planning commission' became a reality at this time and members of the planning commission, appointed, now, installation of parking meters might' be .delayed. In all fairness to these five members of the council I feel it is my duty tb Veto this ordinance for the, present.. " The hlayor added that she hoped the" council "would see fit to resume • further study, and hoped for ultimate ,passage of a planning commission ordinance. The second reading of the parking meter ordinance took place, and again passed by a vote of five to one. The next reading of this ordinance is slated for June 10, and if successfully -vdted upon then, requires only publiSation to become a law. After such passage and publication, decision will then have, to be m'ade as to the method Of handling meters^ whether to buy. th'em outright via bids, of" sign contracts for 'installation whereby they would be paid for out of meter revenue. > .. Council circles Indicated they did not think meters could be in- Stalled befdre 1 September. , Other council matters included the third and final reading ol the ordinance fixing rates for natural gas in Algona. This ordinance will be found in a legal notice published elsewhere in today's Algona.Upper Des Moines "THouwk^.

School Census Is Now Underway The school census, taken biennially, began last Tuesday in Algona as crews swept through the city and rural areas gathering data. The census, to determine the number of school-age and preschool age residents of Algona from one day old \ to 21 years, will be conducted by high school students under the supervision of Robert Stephenson,< high school instructor. The census helps to predict future school enrollments and is used as a tax base for state aid. The' 1952 census revealed that in the old* Algona district there were 771 males and 779 females in the 5-21 years age group. The new figures are expected to top these by a considerable amount. Supt. Laing indicated, that the breakdown this year will be more complete than in 'the past. When the census is completed, it will reveal a complete breakdown of the number of children in a particular age group. The tally will also reveal the number of children in each age group and the block in which they reside. Laing explained that this will give school officials a clear picture of school needs in the event a selection of a new building site should ever be necessary. Following is a list of the census takers and the districts which they will cover: . Northwest section—Karen Shirley and Barbara Bourne; northeast — Cheryl VanderWaal and Nancy Kain; southeast — Shirley Maxwell and Mary Bruch; southwest — Julia Bourne and oy Hutzell; Rural—Carl Me iride.
