Kossuth Approved For U.S. Food Stamp Plan According to a letter received by Mrs. Helen Huber, Kossuth Social Welfare director, tills week, this county is definitely to be Included in the Federal Food Stamp Program, a plan through which needy families may buy groceries at reduced rates. The letter stated, "Kossuth county has been approved to parti- ilpate in the Food Stamp Program 1 and went on to say planning sessions for the plan will get underway as soon as possible. Mrs. Huber stated Friday she had not received any information regarding a possible date when the program will be put into effect here. The letter she received came from thelowaDepartment of Social Welfare. An application for Kossuth's Inclusion In the play was made In May, 1966 - and it Is expected the program might be in effect here about the middle of this year. By Jan. 1 this year, 43 of Iowa's 99 counties were using the plan. The stamp set-up is designed to replace the surplus commodities program. Through it, food stamps will be sold at the welfare office here, with the stamps then used to purchase anything edible, with the exception of some Imported foods, beer and cigarettes. Grocery stores must be authorized to participate In the program. The number of stamps that can be purchased by a family is dependent upon income - and there is also a bonus stamp arrangement, through which the needy family gets more stamps than purchased. Grocers then take the stamps to local banks where they are repaid the actual cash value and the banks redeem the same amount of money from a Federal Reserve Bank. The U. S. Department of Agriculture pays approximately two- thirds of the program costs and the county pays the balance.

A total of 38,838 feet of curb and gutter is Included- and with the drainage Included, aproperty owner with a single lot (66 ft. and not located on a corner of a block) would spend about $299.64.

Besides the actual cost of the project, other costs would be Involved. These costs, however, were Included in the estimates, which are usually high. These costs would include design, $12,100; publication, legal and administration, $6,700; inspection, $5,700; staking, $5,300; plats and schedules, $2,000; and contingencies (possible other expenses), $7,608.70.
