EDWARDSVfLLE — A plan to gain support of organizations in the city for development of the Springer Woods area into a playground - recreational area will be launched here by Alderman Orville West. The 16 - acre tract, northeast of Edwardsville, was dedicated to the city by Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Springer in 1913. The wooded area, described as a "good location" for a playground and rec reation area, is underdeveloped except for work by the Civilian Construction Corps in the 1930's and work by private citizens. Letters will be mailed to organizations and clubs in the city this week for support and contributions to develop the property as a recreational site, West said today. West's proposal to the City Council includes clearing of undergrowth on the proposed park site by the city street department and installation of walkways through clearings in the wooded area. West said "civic mindec roups" might be encouraged to n-ovide playground equipment )icnic tables and rest rooms. He suggested that the city In ies and provide a water supply o the land site.

EDWARDSVILLE — Procedure to vacate city streets and alleys is outlined in an ordinance given first reading at a meeting of the City Council Tuesday evening at the Edwardsville Public Library. In the proposed ordinance three copies of a request to vacate a street or alley signed by the petitioner would be filed at the office of City Clerk Alvin E. Wooldridge. Petitions accompanied by three copies of the plat proposed to be vacated and a 525 filing fee would be presented at the City Clerk's office and referred to the City Plan Commission for recommendation. On tentative approval the City Council would appoint two persons to appraise the property to be vacated at a fair market value. On return of the appraisals and deposit of a sum which the property is appraised the council may adopt an ordinance vacating the street or alley. In other action the council agreed to advertise for bids for a police patrol car to replace a 1962 model Pontiac car which has registered 60,000 miles. Bids will also be received for painting work on the new bull pen section installed at the city jail adjacent to the police department. The council voted an expenditure of $1,053 for needed repairs of a blower at the city's sewer plant. The repaired equipment will undergo an overhaul and re- placed in about four weeks.
