Alton Evening Telegraph Wednesday, Sept, 6,10RJ A*3 Tons of machinery is busily \vofldiig like ants in the area just west of the Illinois Power Co. plant in East Alton, where land is being torn up for dirt to fill the base for the Berm Highway near the Wood River end of the road. When the pit is completely empty of dirt for the fill, Illinois Power will use the space available for depositing fly ash. This view is from the top of the Mississippi River levee looking north. The area comprises an estimated 15 acres and will be filled with fly ash over tho years. Though dirt is being used for fill, placed over the sand pumped from the river, the Berm Highway level still will be below the levee after the road is built and motorists will not be able to see the river at all while driving along it in that area. The Berm roadbed is being built up there to connect with the new bridge over Wood River Creek. (Telegraph photo by Robert K.

Also approved, on a rare split vote, was a bid by a Collinsville firm for audiovisual equipment for the police department. The high bid of $6,463, by Revideo of Collinsville was accepted over a bid of $6,175 by Sales Dynamic Supply of St. Louis. Police Chief Fred Bright said the low bidder did not include a warranty, classroom training or equipment maintainence in his bid and "it was worth the difference to have these." The purchase was approved on a 4-2 vote, with Trustees Wayne Buttry and Bill Ma'his voting against the measure. Buttry had previously opposed the purchase because ,of the cost, though state grants will pay 75 per cent of the price and local funds are liable fin- only 25 per cent.
