County Engineer Dick Doss iaid Tuesday. * Doss reported that last Friday 4as received a letter from Hoy Jlofheinz. HSA president, in -which Holbein* outlined 43 defects and incompleiions. * Cost of correcting the items •was estimated by Hofheinz at 3500,0000. ; Hofheinz said in the letter that •he felt the 43 items should be 'corrected before the final pay- •Taent is made on the Domed IStadium contract. Doss said. * The engineer explained that :Harris County is withholding *JS9,COO from the joint contract xrf $19.476.000 of H. A. Lott. ~Jnc.. and Johnson, Drake & Inc. Doss said the 43 items cited 'by Hdfheinz are scattered all "throughout the stadium and do not consist primarily of roof re«pairs. " He said Hofheinz stated in his letter that the HSA is looking to Harris County for reimburse on the cost of painting the ^skylights so that the stadium; xould be used. Glare interfered! 'with baseball when the Domed ".Stadium was first used last -spring. No figure was given on /cost of .painting the skylignts. Doss reported that Hofheinz; called in his letter upon the con- 1 "tractors and their bondsmen for oorrection of the defects and the ^completion of the stadium. •> The engineer said the inforrnat- .iion In Hofheinz's letter has been •given to Commissioners Court, Highland's Fabric's QUALITY FABRICS 324 N. Main Highlands. Tex. Pfeone 42&-237S and Doss has held a conference with the Domed Stadium architect. Doss pointed out that a considerable amount of time will be required for checking the 43 items cited by Hofheinz. JLater, he explained, the legal aspects will be reviewed with the county attorney's office. County Commissioner V. V. Ramsey said Tuesday that Commissioners Court has virtually no responsibility concerning deficiencies complained of by Hof- heinz, "except to see that other people (contractors, etc.) do what they're supposed to do." Commissioner Ramsey added that Hofheinz "did not make any demands" on Commissioners Court, but addressed letters about the stadium deficiencies to the proper parties who must deal with. them. A Houston Post story Tuesday morning said Hofheinz demanded that the county do something about the $500.000 worth of deficiencies at die stadium.

Other facilities that would be provided with the bond funds include an academic building and a mechanical center. Total cost of the buildings is workers estimated at 51,974.293.

He expressed the opinion that the ordinance would provide "all of the controls needed but would not hamstring any industry planning to come tx> Baytown.'' The meeting also was attended by two other members of the planning commission —• Dr. George Walmsley and Mrs. Dan Mundinger — and Keith Raftor- fer of Bernard Johnson Engineers, Inc. Bernard Johnson prepared Baytown's comprehensive plan, of which the proposed zoning ordinance would be a part. Dr. Walmsley termed the proposed measure "a minimum requirement ordinance." He said the planning commission members realize that zoning is extremely controversial. Mrs. Mundinger said the help of the relators probably will be needed more tnan that of any other group in connection with the zoning proposal. "I feel that if we want to see Baytown grow orderly and beautifully, we need to begin planning now," she said. Mrs. Mundinger pointed out that many different types oi buildings would be permitted in the residential district. These include churches, colleges, country clubs, hospitals and golf courses. "We have an ordinance we can live with," Hale said. "It is not going to stifle the business of realtors or anyon e else." In response to questions by the realtors, the following information was provided about the proposed ordinance: • A limited number of copies of the measure were prepared, but copies are expected to be disseminated widely before final action is taken. • The city council, which received the proposed ordinance a few weeks ago, has not indicat- when it may take action.
