Lrnz and his department. The car has broken down. City Comptroller H. B. Ramey submitted to the council's finance committee Monday night sealed quotations he had obtained from dealers in small cars. After the proposals were opened and considered, the committee voted to accept the offer of Cordes Motors for a 19M Studebaker, 4-door sedan at net of $1,314.27 after trade-in of the disabled car. Ramey explained that he had called for quotations from dealers under provisions of the ordinance on purchases which permits such action to be taken in an emergency, thus shortening the time that a formal call for bids would entail. Other cars offered were at the following net prices after trade- in allowances: Chuck Diering Ford Sales, 1%:( Falcon <l-door, $.1.233.75; Reilley Bros., 1963 Chevrolet II. 100 series, $l,(i8, r >, or 3(10 series, $1,760; Hoefert Bros., 1963 Dodge Dart, 4-door, $1,550; and Roberts Motors, 196-1 Plymouth compact, 4- door, $1,638. Chairman Maitland Tummer- miere said (he car assigned to Lenz's department has had 90,000 miles of city use, and now is inoperative. Len/. said it had been assigned to him by then City Manager Frank Zeitlin last February. Christmas Test Proposed for 10-Hour Parking Meters on Market Street An installation of 60 new 10- hour parking meters on the west side of Market Street, from Third to Sixth, on a free trial basis is proposed for the Alton Christmas shopping season. The city finance committee at its meeting Monday night recommended to the city council that an offer of the Duncan Parking Meter Division of Nautec Corp. for the trial installation be ac- | cepted. An impletenting reso- i lution will be submitted to the council at its meeting Wednesday night. The proposal, originally recommended a few weeks ago by Mayor P. W. Day, was put before the finance group by Alderman Harry Smith of the streets committee. Suggests Angle Parking Smith, who had conferred with some of the downtown merchants yesterday afternoon, also sug-| gested a return to angle parking! on West Third from Piasa to State Streets, but the committee after discussion, left this matter for further study. The object would be to get more shopping traffic into the W. 3rd shopping district, using angle parking to afford some added parking spaces. Smith also reported that the merchants have plans for a pro-j ject to make W. 3rd more inviting to shoppers, a mid-street decorative arrangement being one suggestion. Public Works Director Paul Lenz advised there be careful study either before a change to angle parking or before anything be placed in the center of the street that might be a hindrance or hazard to moving | traffic. , Chairman Maitland Timmer-j miere cited that any decision to be of benefit for the holiday shopping period must be made within 30 days. Under the Duncan offer for a| free 90-day installation of 60 new meters on Market Street, the parking time given would be I increased from two to 10 hours as is provided in the city hall j the remaining 40 per cent to the| parking lot. i Duncan firm: '2) or it could | The city would retain nil park-imnke payments at a rate of $1.2o| ing fees at the rate of a nickel j a month per meter j for each two hours of parking.
