The project has been discussed several {(nies* during the past several , months, arid an area just ndrth of the present old building has already been leveled and bladed for future use. As presented, the plans call for a concrete and brick building, 150 x 60 feet in size, with a round roof, an office area, and a pair of giant size doors on the front side.j Included would be a shop area for servicing city equipment, plus ample parking space for ali vehicles. Price of the new structure would be from $35,000 to $45,000, which is not considered high when the value of equip-; ment to be housed is ; figured. $100,000 Equipment Lashbrook estimates present city street department machinery is worth $65,000, with a replacement value of approximately $100,000. It is the contention of those interested, that a fire in the present flimsy structure could practically put the department out of business, regardless of present insurance coverage, City Attorney John Carroll and City Clerk Ivy Scuffham were instructed by the council to cause proper notices to be pub- liished. so the question could be submitted to the voters. All four coiincilitien present were in favor of the action.. ,'.•;','' Changes in the blacktppping specifications were okayed ; by. the • council. It is hoped work, : on the blacktop can begin by'Alig. 15. Specifications and necessary papers are on file in the city clerk's office. Want Trees Saved Another contingent of property owners from Church Street were present at the .meeting, to deliver a petition dealing With the' preservation of ash and maple trees while) curb and gutter and,blacktopping are installed. A total of 23 persons in a three block area bordering the street have now made the request on two different petitibns to the city/ The petition .wa^ filed-and no action'taken on it. ' , It has been considered in some cases, that curb;and gutter could be run between the trees where they sit right on the line of the street, but it isn't certain this will be done. Building permits for M. W. Bit- linger, Ray Johnson, R. H. and Florence Valentine and E. S. Kinsey were approved; the insurance premium on the city engineer's instruments paid; salary of $215 per month set for William G. Woodcock of the street department and an increase in wages to ?280 per month for Policeman Ernest Hutchison in other action during the night.
