Village police contract at issue (Continued from Page 1) According to County Clerk Judy Roehm, since April 1, the village has not. been paying its fair share of the cost of services. The county board agreed to send a bill to the village for $4.26 per hour from April 1 until Sept. 30. Since the county contracts with the village to provide up to 70 hours a week, the bill could be more than $1,000 a month. Ellisor said today the village paid each bill it received from the county and now the county wants to "bill retroactively for services we have already received." The county board agreed in any new contract, the village could be charged $20.50 an hour. The village had been paying $16.31 an hour. Sheriff Gerald Kitzman asked the commission to consider that village taxpayers also pay county taxes. He suggested the county clerk determine what percentage of county taxes are paid by village taxpayers and take that percent from the charges to the village. Roehm countered, "We pay village taxes and that should pay for police protection."

Ml Clinton says much volatility to be expected By BARRY SCHWEIO AP Dtptomatk: Writer MOSCOW (AP) — Trying to calm global turmoil, President Clinton said today that volatility in U.S. and world markets is to be expected and "the right thing to do" is to restore growth in crippled economies from Asia to Russia. "It means, in short, that America must maintain a leadership role cf active involvement." the president said. Speaking from the Kremlin at a joint news conference with Russian President Boris Yeltsin, Clinton aimed his comments at calming wild gyrations in the U.S. stock market as investors react to currency and economic crises in Russia, Japan and other major industrial nations. The volatility in the world markets, including in our stock market, I think is to be expected under these circumstances," Clinton said. The right thing to do is to try to restore growth in the economies of the world where there isn't enough growth." He spoke about 3V^ hours before Wall Street opened for another uncertain day of trading. The most important thing is sticking with sound economic policy," Clinton said, referring to his administration's platform of "fiscal discipline" coupled with increased spending on education, science and technology. In Northwest strike ty, since they are paying for 80 hours of coverage and get 70, he was cut off by Chairman Slye who said the issue had already been determined. Slye added, "If the village doesn't like the contract, they should not sign it." County board members stressed the county must have an answer before it can approve its budget, because if the village does not renew the contract, the county will have to lay off two deputies. Accompanying the letter to the village will be a copy of the portion of the contract which states if the village reinstates a contract after dropping coverage, the department will have a 90-day notice. Ellisor said he was disturbed by the turn of events. The county has apparently forgotten that the village taxpayers are entitled to coverage anyway, and we tried by dedicated service to supplement what we are already entitled to." He continued that the contract also helped the county since it enabled them to add an additional 10 hours a week to county coverage. •'We have to make the investments and decisions that we know will produce growth over the long run for the American economy," he said On Tuesday, Wall Street logged its second-busiest day of trading and saw the Dow Jones industrial average bounce back 288.36 points from Monday's stunning 512-point plunge. 'That 6.4 percent fall was the second-biggest point drop ever for Wall Street's best-known indicator. The rebound sent Asia's three main stock indexes higher today, despite the region's unresolved economic woes. Markets in Tokyo, Singapore and Hong Kong all closed higher today. The Dow's roller coaster ride has raised fears that the U.S. economy could slow down und slip into a recession. Monday's plunge on Wai! Street specifically raised concerns that Asia's 14- month-old had spread to the West and Russia, where an economic crisis is widely regarded as the country's worst since the fall of communism. Clinton, who often talks of global turmoil as a direct American interest, said the United States must take the lead in bolstering world economies. "Because of our relative economic strength, (Americans) have an extra obligation to try to build a system for the 21st century," he said. Mediation board calls for meeting WASHINGTON (AP) — The National Mediation Board today called an "exploration meeting" to bring Northwest Airlines officials and union leaders back to the table to identify areas of flexibility as the pilots' strike entered its fifth day. Both parties indicated there was room for negotiation in their Tuesday meeting with Transportation Secretary Rodney Slater, said mediation board spokesman Jim Armshaw. The purpose of the next session, he said, would be to identify the areas of flexibility. Armshaw said that National Mediation Board member Maggie Jackson was .contacting the parties to establish a time and place for what he said was "an exploration meeting, which could then turn into a negotiation session." While Armshaw stressed that this was not a formal bargaining session, deciding to bring the two parties back to the table was a sign of progress. Dispatchers and meteorologists were the first to go aa Northwest began laying off other employees in the fifth day of the pilots' strike. The company laid off 177 workers Tuesday.
