Temperatures of 91 degrees Uruguayan Politicos Call for Resistance has authorized the city engi neers (to begin working on plans' fw a new water well. An estimate was recently sought from the 0% of Galesburg on a proposal for Mon- moutti to tap into the water line Uhat serves Galesburg. Bersted said, "Our engineers and our bonding firm agreed with me that the coat fa> <bap into (the Galesburg line was too high." Bens ted said he has notified GaJesbung officials (that unless the cost can be lowered the City of Monmouth will have to seek other means of increasing its water supply. "But fihey have already'told me *hey are in the process of raising their water rates and I doubt they'll come down on ibhedr estimate, so I have asked our engineers to proceed with pians for a new well," Bersted said. He noted however, Hhait should a more fa complete our engineering plans for a new well until we are certain we are going to have to have one," said Bersted. While discussing the city waiter supply, Bersted said there [is a possibility that water rates may be increased. "We now have (the lowest water and sew- |er raltes in this area and our expenses in the waiter department were very high this past year." He said no decision about rate increases will be made, however, until an audit is completed. A deed to easement on city property was approved by tine aldermen. The easement will permit a lire escape to be built on the Bowman Colwell annex which will extend onto city property. In recommending the easement, Bersted said that allowing the fire escape to extend onto city 'property would pre­ vent the elimination of a park ing space in the adjoining city parking lot. The easement was granted with a specification that the city can reclaim the property at any time alter giving a sax month notice.
