Ask Engineers Contract For Big City Sewer The Algona city council discussed a variety of subjects during a four-hour meeting at the city _ hall Oct. 27. High on the list in importance was consideration of engineers to begin work immediately on the big • Storm sewer project for the northeast and east sections of Algona., A letter from Buell & Winter, Sioux City, informed the city that they would not be available at this time due to previous com- mittments. M. W. Bittinger, representative of Collins, Thompson and Willis, Marshalltown, was asked by members of the council to present a proposed contract at the meeting Thursday, Nov. 3. It is uncertain as to the exact length of time required for the engineering portion of the portion of the project, therefore impossible to ascertain when the actual digging will get underway. If, and when, finally completed in total, the storm sewer construction would serve all those persons living in an area generally bounded by McGregor street on the south, the Northwestern tracks on the west, almost to highway 18 on the north, past the city limits on the east.

The company foresees possible damage to its equipment, and wants it avoided. A possible answer is being investigated by city officials. Linnan and Lynch, law office, was employed by the city to defend policemen Al Boekelman and Richard Groen in a district court action filed by Mrs Jacqueline Pifer, widow of Robert Pifer, killed in a chase last summer.
