Galesburg ftegistef*Moi!, Galesbura;,.HI; Tuesday, June 19, 1973 £5 Council Hears Report on Damage To Monmouth Sewer Lagoon Cover luiJiliilililllillllliffi! MONMOUTH — The sewer lagoon at the north edge of Monmouth ds once again threatening to become a "stinkln' mess," Monmouth Mayor George Berated said at the meeting of the City Council Monday night. Berated said the large plastic cover which has recently- helped prevent odorous gases from the first stage lagoon from polluting the air has been ripped to shreds. "I'm afraid that people are going to start complaining about the odor from the lagoon any day now," Bersted said. The trouble started, according to Bersted, about a week ago when a 30-foot rip developed in the plastic cover. "I was notified as soon as the rip was discovered and checked it but I have no idea what caused it." He said high winds over the weekend completed the destruction of the cover.

IRA Ends Bomb Warnings BELFAST (UPI) - The Irish Republican Army, retaliating for the weekend deaths of two Roman Catholics, announced a major policy change Monday- it will no longer issue warnings prior to bomb attacks. IRA. tactics in the past usually included telephoned alerts before bombings were carried out at public gathering places such as pubs and department stores. But a statement issued In Belfast by the militant Provisional wing of the IRA said it would strike in the future without warning. The statement said the new IRA policy was based on the activities of a new Protestant extremist group, the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF), which claimed responsibility for the weekend deaths of two Roman Catholics. "In view of the activities of the Ulster Freedom Fighters, the Provisional IRA will no longer give warnings of its explosions," the statement said. The deaths of the two—Daniel Rouse, 17, and James Kelly, 25 —raised 4o 827 the number of dead in nearly four years of Northern Ireland violence among Roman Catholics, Protestants and security forces. Disclosure of the IRA policy change came as police appealed to the public for help in smashing the UFF, which threatened more violence after claiming responsibility for the two killings, British intelligence sources said army agents were trying to infiltrate the group and capture its estimated 20 members.

Financial Institutions Save Day MONMOUTH - The .Com- imunilty National Bank, the Security Savings and Loan Association, the Monmouth Trust and Savings Bank, and the National Bank of Monmouth are joining with the Warren County Prime Beef Festival to provide fireworks for the Fourth of July celebration at Monmouth Park. Monmouth Mayor George Bersted said indications last week were that there would not be a fireworks program this year. He said the Warren County Prime Beef Festival had said they would cooperate with other agencies but could not finance the entire program. "It was not until this morning," Bersted said Monday, "that the fireworks for our celebration were assured when our four financial institutions volunteered to underwrite the program, "I know I do, and I think everyone of our citizens should congratulate our local finan- ical institutions for their public-spirited generosity," said Bersted. The fireworks will be fired at Monmouth Park on the evening of the Fourth. F. Carter Stanton, veteran commander of the fireworks firing crew, will supervise the job.

Bersted said he would notify the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today as to what has happened to the lagoon cover. "They ordered us to put that cover on and we spent about $70,000 doing it and I don't think it ever did work as well as it was supposed to even before this happened," The EPA entered the picture when they fined the city $2,000 about two years ago for allowing the odorous gases from the lagoon to pollute the air. At that time, the EPA ordered the city to place a cover over the lagoon that would collect the gases so that they could be burned. The firm which installed the lagoon cover was called here last week. "They inspected the initial rip but I haven't heard a word from them since," Bersted said. Since the city's engineers had never felt that the lagoon cover worked as effectively as it was supposed to, the city had never accepted the work. The contractors are also still under bond, according to Bersted. He said action would be started immediately against the suppliers of the cover and the contractors. "The courts may end up having to make a decision on this," Bersted said. In other matters before the council, the mayor reported that work may be started this fall on widening North 11th Street and building a bicycle path from Detroit Avenue to Society to Meet MONMOUTH - The Warren County Historical Society will meet Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the Warren County Historical Society Museum at RoseviJ,!e.

Basic engineering work, which has been completed for over a year, calls for the new road to be 30 feet wide with a 4-foot pedestrian and bicycle path. A total of $25,000 of motor fuel tax funds was authorized for street maintenance. The councilmcn approved a standard engineering agreement with Stanley Missman and Associates, the city's engineering firm, for work they are to do in improving the water supply. Bersted said a decision remains to be made on increasing its water supply by constructing a new well or by tapping into .the Galesburg water line. He said he, Buiford Hottle, city council, and representatives of the engineering firm would meet today with Galesburg officials to discuss tapping into the Galesburg water line. Jim Wills, chairman of the Geology Department at Monmouth College who was employed by the city to update the city plan, reported to the council that the updating has been completed except for the cartography. That will be done Thursday, he said. Wills noted that the updating also completes the city's eligibility for the grant of about $400,000 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development needed to finance the improvements to the city's water supply. Wills, who also acts as the city's representative on the West Central Illinois Regional Council of Public Officials, reported that it will vote Thursday on the adoption of a budget. The proposed budget calls for the City of Monmouth to pay $1,104 as Its share of operating expenses. He said he and Bersted thought the amount was too high and he was going to propose en amendment to cut the amount to about $500. He was authorized, however, to agree to the proposed budget figure, if his amendment was voted down. During committee reports, the aldermen approved the purchase of a new sludge pump for the sewer plant. The 38-year-old pump now in use is in need of repair and no parts are available, according to Aid. Francis Martin. The new pump will cost $1,958 and shipment will take 16 weeks.
