Cop Job Loren Nelson, who applied in person at the last council meeting for a job on the city police department, attended last night's meeting and inquired on the council's decision. A meeting was scheduled today by the police committee and Chief of Police Charles Wheelhouse to decide Nelson's addition to the department. Blachinsky advised the Galva Planning Commission to' reconsider a recommendation that a rezonlng permit be garnted to Leon Brooks for sale of horse and pony trailers at his residence on Southwest Sixth Avenue. Frances D. Thompson, secretary of the Planning Commission, reported on the commission's findings at a hearing July 6 which would have re zoned the residence located vithin the city from residential to business and general services.
