Three lights were broken in the windstorms last week, and he had just enough globes and parts left to take care of those that became casualties yesterday. Suggest Widening Of Merchant St. Members of the City Traffic Commission have recommended to the city icouncil several steps to relieve congestion in the use of one-way Merchant St. at the northerly edge of Upper Alton business district. Proposed is widening the street to its full width, elimination of all parking on the north, side, and a one-hour limit on parking along the south side. The commission, through a special committee, recently made a thorough study at the request of the council on means of bettering the Merchant St. traffic situation. Also adopted by the commission is a recommendation to move the bus stop, on the westerly side of State St., opposite West Junior High school, from the northerly side of Patterson to the southerly side of Patterson. The change would provide a "far-side stop" to replace the present "near-side stop." Because of enlargements to the parking meter system, now including more than 700 meters, the commission approved a suggestion to the council that the job of main- tailnng and collecting from the meters has become too much for one man to handle. At present the city meter maintainer must make all repairs and adjustments as well as handle the collecting which alone takes about two days of each week. . Better operation would be assured, the commission suggests, if the maintainer had more time to give to kdeping meters in order. The maintainer has special police power so that he may enforce meter rules. The meeting of the Traffic Commission, last Friday, was the last of the present administrative year of the city, and prior to adjournment. Mayor Linkogle made a short address thanking the members for their services. StiLonimnHetd After Crashing Into Patrol Car fcDWARDSVtLLE - Dale T.
