(Guckeen Photo) Discuss $65,000 Set-Up For Translator TV Here A group of Algona citizens appeared before the city council at its regular session Wednesday evening to request installation of CATV (Citizens' Antenna Television). Spokesman for the delegation was Richard Godfredson, chairman, who explained that for many Algona residents television reception is most unfavorable, and that the translator system would make good reception accessible. There are 150 such translator systems now in use in a 6- state area. The are operated at Blue Earth, Mankato, Spencer, Fairmont, Carroll, Windom, Des Moines and Iowa City. He introduced Dan Schulte and Bob Turner, representatives of K and M Electronics of Minneapolis. Mr. Schulte presented brochures on the translator system and explained installation and operation, with emphasis on UHF. He answered a number of questions from the floor. Several channels, 3-5-10, would become available to local residents through a tax levy, ac- cording to Mr. Schulte. Suggested was a 400-foot tower, with estimate of total costs ai about $68,000. Erection estimate was $59,000, exclusive of land and building. An estimate . of $3,000 was placed on the land needed, and $63,000 would include filing the necessary information with the Federal Communications Commission and labor. Maintenance, including power and insurance, was estimated at approximatley $5,000 per year. Cost to the average home owner for the first year would be $40.50, with approximatley $2.83 to be assessed during the ensuing years. The group has in mind three sites on where the tower might be located. None has been definitely chosen. One requisite is that the tower be located four miles from the airport. Charge would be $4,000 to submit patterns and applications to the FCC. Contributions for the system would not be voluntary, but would be assessed to each resident of Algona. Russell Buchanan, city attorney, was of the opinion that at present, council has no bonding authority... He stated that pub- lishment of intent and notices preclude action at present. Mr. Buchanan was authorized to contact James Carpenter, Des Moines bonding attorney, with regard to floating a bond and to establish if it is possible to authorize such a bond. - Mayor William J. Finn and members of the council were invited to view a similar installation at Fairmont and compare reception there, where both color and black and white TV are available. The citizens' group was formally organized at a meeting July 5. Co-chairmen with Mr. Godredson are Dr. J. B. Harris and Albert Van Buren. Others of the committee all of whom were riot present at the council meeting, include DonClapsaddle, Harold Nelson, Al Sage, Tom Rich, Robert Russell, Clayton Pittman, Kenneth Harris, Dewey Skilling, Harvey Reid, Leighton Misbach, Leo Cassel, Paul Haverly, Lyle R. (Bud) Anderson, James Modrell, Dr. William Clegg, Orville Duncan, Ray Gilbert, Glen Graham, Wes Bartlett and Dr. LeRoy Strohman. In other action, authorized was the sale of property and approval of a quit claim deed, regarding a request from Bennie Wibben to purchase one block of West street north of Call street at the west city limits. John Schimmel appeared before council with regard to a storm sewer behind the Good Samaritan Home. Class "C" beer permits were authorized for the Diagonal Grocery, Ron and Jack's and Sjogren Grocery.
