Fabric Shop GALESBURG/ ILL •••^ps BUSHNELL - The Bushnell City Council Monday night set Aug. 28 as the date for a special election on a new recreation ar.d cultural center. The center, to be built at the VFW Park, requires approval of a majority of voters before $224,600 in federal funds will be released by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The city's share is $92,000. Mayor Harold Fitch said that if the referendum passes, the earliest possible date for start of construction would be Dec. 1. Polling place for the election will be City Hall. The annual tax levy ordinance was placed on first reading City Atty. Gordon Hunt told aldermen that .the city can decrease taxes this year because of the availability of money from other sources. A new police manual was presented to the council and approved. It was pointed out that jtlie new manual gives authority to the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners to adopt rules and regulations for the police department. AM. Marshall Buchan, chairman of the council's Police Committee, said that the committee and the Police Commission now have conferences with city police on the first Monday of each month. Trash Contract A trash removal contract with Havens Disposal Service was presented by Aid. Howard Mathewsan. The 3-year contract calls for a guarantee of $45,000 in gross receipts to Havens. The city would continue to collect fees from residents and commercial pick up would be negotiitated separately. The agreement would be subject to renegotiation to reflect changes in cost or new regulations. Aid. George Bucher told the council that he thought $45,000 was too high. The city pays only $32,000 now, he said. After discussion, Mayor Fitch suggested that the matter be referred back to committee to negotiate a compromise figure. Owners of the service, Carl end Ralph Havens, who were present at the meeting, told aldermen that they hoped an agreement would be readied soon since funds were needed to pay for equipment they had purchased. The council also passed an ordinance providing a 35 -mile- per-hour speed limit on the Murphy blacktop past Lake Lawn subdivision. Other items discussed by the council were: — Possibility of leasing a new police car to replace the present one which has over 100,000 miles on it. — Progress of the sewer im provement project. Work will begin as soon as contract de' tails are completed. — A new pump for one of the city's wells. — Weed complaints.
