THURSDAY, JUNE 23,1960 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Resignation Approved Alton town board Monday night approved the resignation of Thomas E. May as a Justice of the peace, directing that it be transmitted to the county clerk, Miss Eulalia Hotz. But It deferred making any'endorse- ment as to filling the vacancy. Justice May. who was present and spoke briefly, asked to be relieved from office as of July 1. explaining that his condition of health makes it inadvisable for him to continue. His second term In office would have continued to next April. Town Attorney Kenneth F. Kelly advised the board that, under opinions of the attorney general as to statutory provisions, May's resignation must be made to the county clerk, and suggested it be forwarded with the board's approval. Kelly also advised that since the vacancy to be created by May's resignation is one of less than a year, any appointment to fill the vacancy must be made by the Board of Supervisors. He suggested that the board might, if it chose, make a recommendation to the county body as to an appointment. Presented to the board was a written application by Fred C. Swain for appointment to fill the coming vacancy. Some members questioned whether there was need to fill the nine-month vacancy. It also was suggested that any action prior to effective date of the May resignation, and its county approval, would be premature. Voted was to defer any action as to a successor to Justice May until the next board meet ing July 13, leaving open an opportunity for any applicant.* for appointment to be heard at that time. Supervisor Stephen Kennedy said cost to the town If the justice vacancy is filled will be 5120—the amount provided over nine months to each justice for office expenses. Alton justices besides May are Harold Beneze, George M. Berry, Earl Manns, and Paul F. Schreiber. By resolutions, the board took the customary annual action to authorize issuance of anticipation warrants against forthcoming taxes as may be required in financing the township in the current fiscal year. Kennedy and Mayor P. W. Day as board chairman were authorized to sign the warrants which apply to -the relief, town, and municipal retirement funds. • Under a new monthly reporting plan, Kennedy tendered the board members a first month- end statement showing appropriations in all town funds, expenditures to date, and unexpended balances. Last night's report covered two months, so that the system will refer back to the April 1 start of the present fiscal period. Claims approved last night for payment totaled $13,636 from the general assistance fund, and $6,158 from the town fund. The two figures were larger than usual because disbursements included $9.652 from the general assistance fund, and $4,677 from the town fund to retire remaining anticipation warrants from last year.
