The city Wood River, from the viewpoint of residents of Rosewood Heights, were recited today by Ed Doerr, president of Rosewood Heights Improvement Association. Saturday residents of Northwood Place, a section of RoSe- wod Heights, along with residents of nearby Lincoln Addition, will vote on a proposal to annex «to Wood River. Without taking a stand on the proposal, Doerr said the basic arguments for and against the proposition should be pointed up. Among the principal points in favor of annexation, Doerr pointed out, is the fact that Rosewood Heights now has an estimated population of 5,000 and is no longer the suburban- type area it was when the district was first developed. It has the problems of a city without the city organization to cope with them, Doerr said. Doerr broke down tax figures to show that most home owners, with "a mortgage" would find, in the long haul, that-the cost of living as a part of Wood River 'would be about $13 a year less, taxation, cost of water, garbage collection and other items being considered. Also, Doerr pointed out, most residents believe they will be able to get sewer service sooner as a part, of Wood River than as a separate and unincorporated area. On the opposite side of the ledger, Doerr said, it is doubtful that Wood River* would be able to extend better fire protection to the area since the present water mains are not has proposed a bond issue to remedy this, but there is no guarantee this bond issue will be passed, he said. Opponents of the annexation proposal, Doerr said', also ask the cost in taxes If such a bond Issue Is approved. In addition, Doerr pointed out, it has been claimed that Wood River can provide Rosewood Heights a sewer more cheaply than one can be erected separately. Since Rosewood Heights residents have long sought to obtain sewer cost estimates, Doerr said, and have faired to do so, how can Wood River estimate such costs without an elaborate survey? Minor Crash WOOD RIVER — A minor collision between autos driven by Ann Vernor of 1215 Exchange, Alton, and Frank Lavite of 135 S. Main was reported to polico Thursday. The Vernor auto was traveling west on Edwardsvillc road, police said, when the the collision occurred. The rear of the Lavite auto was damaged.
