Golesburg Register-Mail, Gglesburfl,Jfl, Tuesdoy, Moy 22, 103 %\ ^^^^ •" Members of Monmouth Council Handed Copies of $791,500 Budget for City- •illl Illlll, llllllll MONMOUTH — A corporate budget of $791,800 (or the 19731974 year was distributed to members of the City .Council by Mayor George Bersted at a meeting Monday night. The new budget is about $10,000 higher than the 19721973 budget and allows for a $33,000 deficit from estimated revenues. Bertsed noted, however, that last year's budget also allowed for a deficit and that it was not necessary as the budget was balanced at the end of the year. Expenditures listed in the new budget are basically the same as last year except for salary increases for city employes, according to Bersted. He said a decrease in property tax is being balanced by an increase in sales and income tax returns. Some of the larger budget items are: Police department, $221,900; Fire department, $144,100; Street department, $197,000, and landfill and garbage, $55,500. Of the total $808,130 expected in revenues, $159,000 is expected from general property tax; $340,000 from city sales tax, and $95,000 from state income tax. The new budget also calls for an expenditure of $95,000 in 1972 general revenue sharing funds, and a like amount from the 1973 funds that are expected. Mayor Bersted said the city expects to receive $135,170 in general revenue sharing funds this year and that the $40,170 not allocated in the budget may be applied to future contracts for tennis courts, locker rooms and other improvements at the proposed Citizen's Lake project. The budget calls for $90,000 of the 1972 revenue sharing funds to be spent on the city garage with the remaining $5,000 being used as part payment for the landfill tractor. Bersted said plans for the city garage would be ready to be put up for bids within two weeks. The $135,170 expected from federal revenue sharing in 1973 is to be spent as follows: land acquisition at Citizen's Lake, $25,000; initial sewer and water contracts at Citizen's Lake which are to be put in before the bypass highway is built, $20,000; payment on the sanitary landfill tractor, $15,000; engineering for Citizen's Lake, $15,000; mental health (if other local governments go into this for expansion of Achievement Industries) $20,000; future contracts for tennis courts, locker rooms, etc. for Citizen's Lake, $40,170. Bersted said supplemental ideas could be added for the revenue sharing money, but that he felt the funds should be limited to use for capital expenditures. Everett F. Hardin appeared before the council as a representative of the City Planning Commission to recommend that a request for rezoning of some property by Monmouth College be refused. Hardin explained that Monmouth College has asked that 16 acres of land it owns at the corner of Eleventh Street Road and U.S. 34 bypass be rezoned from residential to general busi- Roseville Woman Wins Writing Award Sol Hurok Incomparable impresario Sol Hurok waves to the crowd at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York at the gala last night in his honor. He wore the New York City and Spain's highest cultural honors, the Handel Medallion and the Medal of Isabel La Catolica. Hurok was 85 on April 6, and has been serving the performing arts for 60 years. UNIFAX Theater Greats Honor Impresario Sol Hurok NEW YORK (Ufr) - The stage of the Metropolitan Opera House was awash with great stars of ballet, opera and concert Monday night. Then, briefly at the end, there was one "star" on stage, spotlighted alone for a few seconds before the performers came out to bow to him—to Sol, Hurok, impresario of impresari' os, the man who. has had so much to do With their careers and with those of hundreds of others around the world. The occasion, witnessed by more than 3,600 persons who packed the auditorium, was an International Diamond Jubilee Gala honoring Hurok for his 60 years of service to the performing arts, and for turning 85 on April 6. ' Mayor Conveys Thanks Mayor John Lindsay, towering over the short, rotund showman, conveyed the "grateful thanks of all New Yorkers" in presenting him with the city's highest cultural award, the Handel Medallion, and the new Diamond Jubilee Medal designed this year to memorialize creation of the Greater City of New York 75 years ago. "I started in New York and I hope to finish in New York—in 15 years," Hurok responded. The impresario also received from the hands of Prince and Princess Alfonso de Borfoon the highest honor of their native Spain, the Medal of Isabel la Catolica, which is rarely given to a foreigner. The event brought out one of the largest society crowds of the year. Fifteen hundred of the spectators paid top price of $100 per ticket, while the rest of the house was scaled down from $75 to $10. All proceeds go to the Performing Arts Research Center of the New York Public Library at Lincoln Center. After the show, 500 of the patrons went to the Hotel Pierre for a gala ball. The entertainment ran smoothly, with Agnes de Mille and Sir Robert Helpmann, both notables of the ballet world, serving as masters of ceremonies. Outstanding Reception All of the performers received numerous curtain calls, but the outstanding reception was, of course, for Dame Margot Fonteyn of England's Royal Ballet. Other dance contributions were made by Antonio Gades and Company from Spain, Violette Verdy of the New York City Ballet, Lynn Seymour and Alexander Grant of the Royal Ballet, Marcia Haydee and Richard Oragun of Germany's Stuttgart Ballet, which is now appearing at the Met under Hurok's sponsorship, and Natalia Bessmertnova and Mikhail Lavrovsky of Russia's Bolshoi Ballet, who made a flying trip here for the event.
