Si. Johns gets $331,200 in V.S. aid Apache County reorganizes to improve city's water system justice of peace precincts By ERMA GRANT ST. JOHNS - City applications for $331,250 from the Economic Development Agency and Four Corners Commission to improve the water "system have been approved, Mayor Darwin D. Grant announced. Sen. Barry G o 1 d w a t e r R-Ariz., told Grant that the ..federal funds include $248,400 ., from EDA and $82,800 from the Four Corners Commis, sion. The city will provide $82,800 to complete the $414,000 project. Work will include putting in a pump and well at Concho, constructing the pipeline to St. Johns and installing a 600,000 gallon storage tank. When the system is completed, the city will be able to pump approximately five times the present amount of water per day, Grant said. The water will be of better quality, he added. The city has been obtaining its water from Lyman Lake, but the water level there has dropped too low to furnish the needs of the city, he said. Safford drugstore robbed Apache County was designated for the EDA assistance because of an 8.3 per cent unemployment rate in 1968 compared with the 3.6 per cent national average. The announcement of the grant culminated two years of work by the mayor. He made four trips to Washington during that time to secure the needed funds. "But I had a lot of help," he said. "We had Sen. Goldwater, Sen. Fannin, Congressmen Steiger, Udall and Rhodes of Arizona as well as Gov. Williams and New Mexico Sen. Joseph Montoya working for us." v SAFFORD - A drug store - here has been burglarized of •' an estimated $500 worth of ; drugs, disposable hypodermic Jieedles and empty capsules.
