V mosstx ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, APRIL 21, Sewer Contractor. Woodfciver Board Agreement f Firm to Begin Work in i 10'Days After Suit - Has Been Filed WOOD RIVER — Eight reluctant ildermeri here voted at a regular •Council meeting Monday night to adopt a written agreement, entered Into With 0. T. Dunlap of the Madison Construction Company, Kd- wardsvllle, whereby the construction firm will begin work on the sewer project on Madison Ave. within 10 days after a declaratory judgment suit Is filed In the Circuit CourJ which would clear up several controversies In the whole, gigantic $1,800,000 job. The supplemental agreement had been drawn up Monday by City Attorney Thomas Holland shortly 1 after a meeting between city officials and Dunlap, with the executive committee of the Township Chamber of Commerce serving as a "liaison team." It was t held In the Chamber of. i flcei here, lasting for more than I tfifree hours! ; ' Dunlap signs : ^After Holland had drawn the paper up, It was turned over to • tHe Chamber officials, who went to Edwardsville and secured Dun; lap's signature on it. • :Essential]y, the agreement stipulates that if the Madison Construction Company wins a declar- afary judgment suit before a caft judge in clarification of the ; lengthy pact, the city will pay an estimated $18,000 extra to Dun! lap" for work on the sewer project 1 on Madison Ave. between 6th St., easterly to where the sewer line terminates. The money would be for alleged extra labor and materials involved in restoring gutters, curbs and sidewalks in the i area. ; ; The city has contended that they • would not have to pay any extra ' f amounts for restoration of the : curbs, etc., if a straight open cut • was used to lay the sewer, "as i specified in the contract." I Dunlap has repeatedly claimed I the city would have to do so, and ,; work on the whole project had i lain practically idle for a long • period of time. } The declaratory Judgment suit. C^Xyas considered the most practical answer. "This matter will get into court one way or another," Holland told the dubious councilmen, "and it is the easiest and quickest way to get the job done." Even if a suit were not filed at this time, one would be filed at a *Jater date, and the city may still owfe Dunlap the $18,000, it was brought out. Filing of the suit appears the quickest way to settle the matter. . "We are losing revenue in the southeast end of town, so we want to, get the project finished," Holland commented. Alderman Byron Killam, who was present at Monday morning's meeting with Dunlap, said "we owe a certain obligation to the people to finish." Start Work In 10 Days Dunlap .according to the agreement with the city, said he would start work within 10 days after filing of the suit and would "work diligently to finish Madison Ave. within six months." It appears that Dunlap intends to use the jacking method of trenching for Ihe sewer line which must go to a depth of •about 28 feet on Madison Ave. This method, it was said, probably will not disturb or destroy gutters, curbs or sidewalks. Alderman Jess Ford said he was going to "vote to sign,this thing under duress." 'Upon a roll call by City Clerk Emmet P. Howard, all of the aldermen present pronounced a hes- • Mating "yes" to a motion Killam, seconded by A. R. House'r to adopt the agreement. About one month ago. the aldermen had voted to file a declaratory judgment suit, but the move was held up. because Holland said j at that particular time nothiiiK would be gained by it. At their last meeting, the city fathers approved a move that! called for sending a letter to the construction company that It was in breach of contract, and to terminate the work and be off the job within 10 days. Yesterday was the 10th day after the letter was mailed but the new agreement apparently voids that action.

WOOD RIVER — At. least: one construction project here will bo finished in relatively short, ordrr, weather permitting,- councilmen were told Monday night at a regular meeting here. That is Penning Ave. curb and guttering program, which will be terminated in about five weeks according to Wilbur Stevens, former city engineer, who remained as the city's boss on the job. .•*"" ^Because two sewer inlets (manholes) had either been destroyed or damaged in recent days, Stevens asked for police protection on the project. The contractor will put up barricades, warning lights, etc., councilmen were told. "Unless the council objects, I will tell the police to give protection," Mayor William R. Stoneham said. There were no objections. The mayor said his orders would read that police "strictly enforce" the law if people in cars drive over barricades or new parts of the project. Police will be asked to patrol the streets involved heavily, Stoneham remarked. 32 Manholes Installed ' Thirty-two of 38 manholes have been installed to date, Stevens said, trees have been removed, and the project was progressing easterly from Haller and Penning Aves. this week, it was stated, with curb and guttering being installed. Stevens noted an apparent oversight of the contractor at 9th and Penning Aves. where a manhole for the new sewer has never been installed. The problem of whom to give water service again reared its ugly head at the meeting Monday night. An applicant for water lives in an area that is surrounded by the city limits, but the small area itself is not in the city. The City Water Commission, in a ruling, said they would not give the applicant water. However, applicants seeking water who live outside the present boundaries may receive water service if they desire. "That's a silly ruling," piped Mayor Stoneham. "I can't feature one like that. The ruling is unfair, it is discriminatory, not to give this man water even though he has lived in the city limits and has paid taxes, yet give it to others who have never lived inside the limits." "The idea," commented Earl Krenz, city engineer, who is also head of the water; commission, "is why he should not come into the city. He's getting all the advantages (of living inside a cify limits) hut none of the disadvantages." Stoneham said it was his understanding if the city surrounds an area, the area can be absorbed into the city without much trouble. Alderman Jesse Ford said: "We're in an untenable position. We've allowed others outside to tie on at the higher rates. So we can't hardly refuse this man." Krenz is expected to report the sentiment of the council to the members of the water commission at their next meeting. , Hamilton Resigns In other action Monday night, the council: (1) Accepted the resignation of John Hamilton as street commissioner, effective April 30. .(21 Approved a request by the Village of Roxana's water department that the Roxana water department be granted permission to supply water to Ihe Ohio Oil Company, which actually is inside the Wood River city limits. However. Wood River's nearest water main to the oil company if approximately 1,000 feet away. "It's a nice gesture on the part of Roxana. It will save us several thousand dollars," commented the mayor. (3) Heard a recommendation by Alderman Joe Stassi, «halrman of the street lighting committee, that a street light be placed on N. 9th St., near the northerly city limits, north, of Edwardsville Rd. (4) Instructed Stoneham to cojv Hold Court of Honor Sunday Afternoon WOOD RIVER Twenty-six were in attendance at a Father- Son overnight camp Saturday night and Sunday at Camp Warren Levis of local Scout Troop 70.
