SVC- .ON A ..O'E HOMSi § W«»ih« Council Opens Blacktop Bids A petition signed by 25 property owners, dealrng with storm sewer activities slated for the northeast portion of Algona, furnished most of the fireworks at the meeting of the city council Thursday, June 23. The storm sewer discussion last week centered around a petition that stated—"objection .to construction of storm sewer and the including of blocks 89 and 101 and all lands north of the Milwaukee right-of-way east of Johnson street and south of highway 18. Reason—that the area is principally farm land and has been included in a county drainage area and the land assessed for such drainage, and said drainage is adequate under normal conditions." , According to a survey mads earlier in the year, one of the storrn sewer ditches would serve that area, but land owners feel it is unnecessary as a county sewer now serves the area and additional assessment by the city would be forthcoming if a new city sewer was installed. No action was taken by the council on the matter. City Engineer Lewis Ferguson told members of the council that the 1 present 8 inch storm sewer now serving Moore street, from Call to North streets, should be replaced by a 24 inch tile. A motion was passed, instructing Ferguson to reconstruct the sewer. Building permits approved—G, M. St. John, Jack Limbaugh, Charles Patterson, Harm Helmers, Mrs Eva Wille, Josephine Dittmer and David Gouge. A permit, applied for by Richard Norton, was rejected. A possible "stop-and-go" signal "for the intersection of State and Phillips streets was discussed. No action was taken, but further investigation of the matter will be made. Spraying equipment and supplies were discussed with Fritz Possehl, a representative of the Ready Chemical and Equipment Co., Cedar Rapids, and a letter from the Motor Club of Iowa was read.
