TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1963 Should County Heating Facilities Be Replaced ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVEN EDWARDSVILLE — Madison County officials were in a dilemma Saturday, Should the 100-foot smoke stack at the county heating plant — which supplies heat from coal-fed stokers and boilers for both the county jail and the courthouse, be repaired? Or, would it be cheaper, in the long run, to abandon any move for tuck-pointing the stack and rebuilding the top portion now in hazardous condition—and, instead, install a natural gas or oil heat- tag system? The delemma confronted members of the board of supervisors, jail and emergency committees here Saturday when they failed to receive a single bid for emergency repairs to the 100-foot brick stack. Members of the two committees, County Clerk Eulalia Hot/,, Sheriff Barney Fraundorf and a Collinsville brick contractor gathered at the smoke stack site Saturday to determine what further emergency action to take with the stack at the county jail building. Several weeks ago the two committees advertised for bids in area newspapers to repair large cracks and openings in the bricks in a 20-foot section near the top of stack. County officials peered at th hazardous section, which is 100 feet above the ground, through binoculars. Bricks near the top are leaning and officials feared the section would fall. Inspection by the party of coun ty officials included the boiler room facilities of the heating plant adjacent to the jail building. The two committees directed the county clerk to write letters to several firms which specialize in construction and repair of chim Jieys and smoke stacks to request their inspection and estimates on the cost of repairs or replacement of the brick stack.
