Alton Evening Telegraph Tuesday, Jan. 12, iffJl A-ft w Greene County begins jail study By MARY HAZELWOOD Telegraph Staff Writer CARROLLTON — Employment of a Peoria ar. chitectural firm on an hourly basis to make a site survey for the proposed new Greene County Jail was approved Monday by the board of supervisors.

While accepting the committee's selection of the architectural firm, the board limited the survey to the old jail site with work to be completed within five days of its beginning.

Roennigke also said that he thought it would be 1972 before actual construction would start on the new sewer system. He said that 1971 would be devoted to working out engineering details and securing financing for the project.

Roennigke told the Belmont Village resident that the board could do nothing about the request now, but that it would be under consideration when changes are made in the sewer system. In other business the Utility Board instructed sewer district manager Koeller to get bids for raising the heighth of 25 to 30 manholes within the district where road surfaces are covering the manhole lids. ^TAILORED AT CENTRAL HARDWARE We cut lumber to the size you need; a board for • *helf or for the fence.. .or lumber for a complete project.
