The boy was treated for scratches on his arms at W nod (liver Township Hospital and released. Cox was charged with failure to reduce spend in an alley*. The accident occurred at 5 p.m. according to Board attorney Stephen Mottaz, will test a state statute which permits Alton the right to refuse to allow Godfreyites within a mile and one-half perimeter area of Alton to vote on inc o r p o r t a t i n g Godfrey Township. 'In addition to giving Mottaz the green light for the suit, the Board also amended the annual budget, and tax levy to include $2,500 for legal work on the lawsuit. This brought the $82,400 'lax levy and appropriation ordinance up to $84,900 for fiscal year 1972-73. In other board action Tuesday it was voted to accept bids for two new Godfrey police cars. Deadline for the bids is 7 p.m. Sept. l!l. Township Supervisor Dale Kennedy said that the new police cars will not, include air conditioning because he, and some of the board members feel that, air conditioning units being run while the cars are parked will cause engine damage. Specifications for the two new cars call for- a "police package" vehicle but no air conditioning. The bids will be opened at. the Boards next, meeting at 7 p.m. Sept. 19. By MARY HAZELWOOD Telegraph Staff Writer BRIGHTON - The village board Tuesday night okayed a zoning ordinance as well as passed an updated subdivision control ordinance, which will require subdivides to install streets and underground utilities before final plats will be accepted. Also read and placed on file was a proposed ordinance for control of horses within the village. It would prohibit riding of horses in the business areas as well as require horse owners to clean the streets whore they have ridden the horses. Riding of horses would be prohibited in the park areas of the villages and on sidewalks, with no horses to be ridden in the village after sundown. No action was taken to allow citizens to express opinions pro and con before the ordinance is passed following its second reading at the next regular board meeting. The subdivision control ordinance would require subdivide^ to set aside areas f o r future park and recreational development, but should the village fail to purchase or condemn the areas within two years the subdivider would be free to develop the set-aside areas in accordance with ordinance requirements. Preliminary plats submitted by Lloyd Well in July, which were tabled pending drafting of the new ordinance, were returned to him for additional planning to bring them into compliance with the new ordinance provisions. City Engineer Charles Shepherd told the board that plans for the village's portion of the new watermain construction under a contract with the Alton Water Co. to furnish additional water to the village are complete and he is now waiting for the Alton company to furnish their plans for the tie-in with the new meter in the Godfrey area. The documents for 14 easements required for the project have been delivered to the village with a call for bids expected as soon as the easements have been secured, he said. A permit for extenion of trunk sewers have been received and a bid call will come after an easement has been secured from the Betsey Ann Picnic Association to cross Betsey Ann Park and a railroad easement to go under the track, Shepherd, said. An audit report indicated that the village is in good financial condition with the Why be on time? PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Proscrastinators' Club of America claims it's unnecessary to be on time. And to prove it, the club will sponsor a Be Late for Something Day 'here Wednesday. recommendation that a general ledger be set up to include separate funds in relation to appropriations already underway. Purchases included a float- type warning device for the lift station at Palmer Street, which has allowed sewage to back up into basements of homes when the pumps have failed to function. The system purchased from the Alton Protection Co. on its quotation of $419.60 Including installation not only provides for ringing of three phones when the pump ceases to function, but also provides battery back up power. Also purchased was a used truck from Melvin Phelps for $800 with $325 the village owed in rental on the truck •applied to the purchase price. The board refused to purchase the truck when it was offered last month but agreed to the purchase since the village's truck has since been broken down and a truck is urgently needed to complete street work. The contract for work to improve drainage on Margaret Street went to Phelps on his lone bid of $2.125.50 which was about $200 under the engineer's estimate. In other business the board authorized the civil defense committee to purchase a civil defense truck at a cost of up to $1,000 should one become available. Bill McNear was approved as the new animal control officer. Sale! 15% off Penneys * Tique 1 insulated Beg. 8.99. Sill length, floor length, triple widths, wall-to-wall, and lots more!
