Included would be a shop area for servicing city equipment, plus ample parking space; for all vehicles. Price of the new structure would be from .$35.000 to $45,000, which is not considered high when the value of equipment 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 SI00.000. 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 published so the question could be submitted to the voters. All four i.-ouncilmen present were in favor of the action.. Changes in the blacktopping specifications were okayed by the council. It is hoped work on the blacktop can begin by Aug. 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 black- lopping are installed. A total of 23 persons in a'three block area bordering the street have now made the request on two different petitions to the city. The petition' was 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 S280 per month for Policeman Ernest Hutchison in other action during the night.
