Municipalities 'Catching Up' With V. S. Aid S\N KRA .MuM.-i ,) (U >I) City, counly and state govern- rnonts, which have aeon the federal money spigot turned off before, are pouring revenue sharing funds into buildings, sewers, fire trucks and other projects. One reason is their concern over the future of the program, according to the first government-sponsored study of general revenue sharing since the program, began last October. The report, Issued Tuesday at the 41st Conference of U.S. ri 72 per cen' of the 770 jurisdictions surve;*** planned to Use at least some of the $.2 billion distributed thus far for construction, improvements and much-needed purchases. The study covered tiny Alaskan villages as well as giant central cities, it was released by Mayor Moon Landrieu of New Orleans and Director Graham W. Watt of the Office of Revenue Sharing,. Landrieu said a number of cities were ."starved" for funds '.'.-I.,, ii- , -.1' In pi >w the money Into long-delayed improvement projects. But others were fearful of using the money for service projects because of their recurring nature and the possibility they might not receive funds at the same level In future years. Another apparent motive, Landrieu said, was concern about inflation—that projects not bought and paid for today would cost more in the future. Watt said the rush to iis'iiid, loads, buildings, sewage lines or buy various kind3 of equipment was due at least in pa'rt to backlogs built up by a simple lack of money. He also noted there were fewer federal restrictions on using money for equipment or building projects than there were on social services, such as health care. A number of the 38,000 recipients plan to use the funds to reduce local taxes or stave off tax hikes. Other uses that ranked high in local plans .; '.:<•'. (I .i.. . t ai(on, environmental protection, and police and fire services, Watt said. The 800 mayors and municipal officials attending the three* day conference, which concludes today, gave a standing ovation Tuesday to longshore* man-philosopher Eric Hotter, who denounced the "silence of the majority of Americans" about violence RED& WHITE FOOD STORES WE TRY TO BRING YOU LOWER FOOD PRICES IN KNOXVILLE MEL'S Red & White Store Mel Soyrs, owner PETE'S Red & White Stores Store # 1 Store # 2 788 N.
