Look over the new office desks, chairs, files and safes at the Office Supply Dept. of THE UPPER DES MOINES. Much of the prellm'nary groundwork, preparatory for the future sale of $1-1/2 m'lllon in school bonds for construction of a new high school here and improvements at twrj other local public schools, was completed during a regular session of the Algona Community School District's board of education here Monday night. Remaining on the agenda Is another important piece of business - teacher's salaries for 1967-68. It Is a major Item for the next meeting of the board, a special one, slated Monday evening, Feb. 13. Beginning at 7:30 p. m., the board will meet in executive (closed) session for 1-1/2 hours, then at an open meeting with a committee of Instructors at 9:00. The State Education Association is recommending that all Its members seek salaries for the next year that begin with a base of $6,000. Current base pay here Is $5,150-and school district boards who have already set up salary slates have put the figure from $5,300 to $5,800 in most cases. Just what the local board's thinking Is on the salary question will probably be disclosed next Monday. Guesses place the amount in the $5,600-$5,700 category, which could cost the district at least $48,500 more in salaries next year. An Insurance plan is also being sought by the teachers - and It Isn't known if it will be included in some sort of a "package" deal with salaries or not. If the board offers $5,600$5,700, the percent of Increase would be about 12%. Richard H. Goss, Chicago, vice president, and Lawrence J. Rlm- mer, Waterloo, associate, from Paul D. Speer and Associates, municipal finance consultants, discussed the bond Issue with the hoard. The board decided on the shortest term presented, about 15 1/2 years, with an average mtllage Increase for taxpayers In the district of 4-1/2 during the period. The shorter term will result In a savings of $95,000 In interest, consequently less taxes. It was explained that the district's $250,000 bonded Indebtedness base would not be threatened by the new issue, which voters approved Jan. 30. The first year's Indebtedness will range from $159,000 to $174,000, depending upon the date the bonds are issued and sold. From then on, with slight fluctuations, the Indebtedness will be in the neighborhood of $164,000 per year until 1974, then will drop appreciably as present Indebtedness of $308,000 is nearly retired. Goss pointed out that the current rate of Interest on school bonds being sold Is the lowest it has been for 18 months and the trend should be the same for another 4-5 months, suggesting the board make preparations to sell the bonds at any time. The Chicago firm expects the bonds may sell for as low as 3-3/4 percent, and certainly under four percent. It takes from 4-6 weeks to sell bonds once the board decides the move should be made. Al Buchanan, president of the board, and Jim Palmer, superintendent of Algona Municipal Utilities, appeared at the meeting for a conference pertaining to demands and uses of electricity in the new building. Buchanan pointed out possible savings in construction and maintenance if the board, architects and engineers plan on electric heat for the structure, also giving a run-down on advantages of electric heat. He asked that the board give the matter further thought before making a final decision on heat for the building, The board granted a $25 per month Increase In wages for Arnold Meyer, new bus foreman j canvassed election returns and certified them; and passed a resolution, thanking the press, and radio, Citizen's Advisory Committee, voters and anyone else w'.io helped present Issues prior to the election. Passage of the bond Issue kept the district's record of never defeating such a proposal Intact. That Darned Groundhog Is At It Again Conditions weather-wise in Kossuth county during the past few days have proved without a doubt that the groundhog saw his shadow Feb. 2 - a fact that guaranteed the area at least six more weeks of winter. Since that bright Groundhog Day, readings have dipped and the area has been showered with snow several times. However, It's nothing like Chicago and New York. Low mark during the period was -11 degrees Monday, while the high, according to the weather station at KLGA, was 34 degrees Friday and Saturday. Total snow- fall topped 21/2 Inches.
