No D/'scriminaffbn In City's Sewer Program, Shelly Says The Freeport sanitary sewer expansion program includes new trunk or collector sewers for east Freeport, west Freeport and south Freeport, Mayor Joe D. Shelly reminded The Journal- Standard today, correcting a statement which appeared Saturday. In a report received from the Freedom of Residence Committee, it was implied that East Side residents must finance sanitary sewer service, while sewers serving west side residents "out to the Country Club" are provided by federal funds. All Freeport property owners, including Freeport County Club, must finance extension of sanitary sewer service to their homes or buildings through distribution laterals from the collector sewers, the mayor said. Freeport Country Club, like other property owners, granted easement for a collector sewer to pass under its golf course, in order that all of northwest Freeport might be served by a sewer carrying sewage by gravity to the sewage treatment plant. The collector will serve areas northwest, west and south of the city. Jackson Street Trunk Similarly, Mayor Shelly said, a new collector sewer will -be built on East Jackson Street, together with a lift station on Louis Avenue to serve a flat area where gravity drainage is not possible. The mayor said that during the past two years he has examined with federal officials every possible way to provide sanitary sewer service to east Freeport with federal funds, and found that only the collector sewers can be included. Recently, he said, FOR askec the Chicago office of the federal Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD) for At that time William Davis gram supervised by the courts, of HUD said he believed such and court costs are added, the aid to be available.

Error by J-S The Saturday story said in error that the Rev. Lyle Sherred made the statement to FOR al- eging discrimination. The statement was taken from a written report of an FOR meeting which the Rev. Mr. Sherred did not attend. A report was given at the meeting of efforts made by Mr. Sherred and Mrs. William Fair to investigate sanitation problems in east Freeport. Mr. Sherred said today that tie would not wish the mayor or other readers to suppose he had made the statement attributed to him. How It Works Mayor Shelly said today there has been much investigation about what the federal aid can be applied to in a sewer program. Federal aid does not apply, HUD confirmed Friday, to whal the department calls "distribution laterals" which run down the center of a street to serve properties on either side. Cost of these laterals and o: connections to residences anc other buildings is included in the cost to property owners. This may be financed through voluntary agreement of the property owners when there is 100 per cent agreement by the owners, saving court costs. When more than 50 per cen but not 100 per cent seek ser vice, this cost is financed through an assessment pro- City Band Calls Shot In Sunday Night Storm The Freeport city band concert Sunday night at Krape Park ended prematurely with the selection "Cool Water," the second number after intermission. A downpour moved in from the southwest and scattered bandsmen and the audience as well as other persons around the park. The electrical storm was ominous, but did little damage. A motorist reported sighting a funnel cloud near Lena to the sheriff's department about 8 p.m., and there was another report that a tornado was starting to form near Dakota. However, the sheriff's department had no further calls on anything that could be attributed to a tornado. Commonwealth Edison at Freeport said only two calls were received on outages to individual services caused by lightning strikes in their service area. Rainfall during the Sunday night storm was measured at JCs Map 4th Activities The Frecport Jaycccs have planned five days of activities in observance of Independence Day.
