Elble predicts vote at polls Saturday will favor sewers Alton Evening Telegraph Thursday, .Tart. 7, 1971 A-3 By BILL McFADIN Telegraph Staff Writer Anticipating a . "heavy turnout" of voters this Saturday, Wood River Township Supervisor Rodger Elble ,said Wednesday he expects passage of a sewer project'in Cottage Hills and Forest Homes. Elble made the statements as he prepared final information on the proposed project, which will be submitted to voters at two polling places from noon until 7 p.m. Saturday. On the ballot is approval or rejection of the overall sewer system plus a choice of five plans to finance the project. The five options give the voter a choice of increasing tap-on fees coupled with decreasing monthly charges. The lowest tap-on fee, $130, carries a monthly charge of $9.22. The plans range upward with a $260 tap-on and $8.35 monthly; $390 initally and $7.50 every month; $520 tap-on and $6.67 a month; and the top plan; with a tap-on fee of $650 and a monthly rate of $5.78. Polling places will be firehouses in Cottage Hills and Forest Homes. Elble said if the project is approved, he would authorize the' township's engineering firm of Russell & Axton of St. Louis to prepare final plans and specifications for the sewer line. He expects that to take about five months. Those plans will be reviewed and approved by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. Later, Elble said, he will step up efforts to get an additional $460,000 from the $750,000,000 approved by Illinois voters in the state environmental bond.issue in November. Earlier, the township had been ' granted $532,000 by HUD to. start the project. Elble .has said previously the HUD grant is approved, but as a future grant. A favorable vpte Saturday, he says, will step up the project's priority in HUD's Chicago office. Following final approvals by state and federal agencies, Elble says, he will advertise for construction bids and award the project. Elble also released figures Wednesday showing the dimensions of the project. He SEiid that in Cottage Hills, 64,750 feet of main trunk sewer pipe, 8- to 15-inches wide, would be laid from six to 20 feet deep. That part pf the project would require an additional 18,300 feet of six-inch to be laid between the main trunks and the property lines. Additionally, 238 manholes would be required and 29,100 square yards of street would be replaced. In- Forest Homes, 42,400 feel of main trunk pipe would be laid between 6 and 22 feet deep, with another 12,000 feet of lateral pipe between the trunk and property lines. Forest Homes, Elble said, would need 115 manholes and would involve replacement of 20,200 square yards of street. The line from the property line to the house is the responsibility of the homeowner, Elble said. In • his voter prediction, Elble pointed out there are 683 registered voters in Forest Homes and another 879 in Cottage Hills. A special voter registration held Monday at the Cottage Hills firehouse added 62 new voters. Voters in the area approved sewers once before, in an election held in June, 1963. Then, Cottage Hills and Forest Homes were combined with Rosewood Heights for a vote. In Cottage Hills, the measure passed with a vote of 308 to 151. Voters in the other two areas turned the proposal down, and it passed by a narrow 74-vote margin overall. (ADVERTISEMENT) DON'T BE FAT MONADEX will !-.c'.p yoli lose weight.
