City Acts Under Other Luw. The city Is proceeding under }ode Sees. 6127 and 351 et seq. Sec. 6127 Is grouped with the concerns to erect iperate municipal plants, the to be paid for out of earn- land not from taxation. , is question whether the „' law applies in Algona's The supreme court has not | occasion to decide, hence B is no absolute authority to iy.

The section confers the needed power on cities and towns to buy or bui-ld and operate electric plants, and the section's history goes back to the 'Code of 1873. Sees. 351 et seq., under which the -city is operating, first appeared In the Code of 1924. Sec. 351, which is expressly made applicable to cities and towns, defines 'public improvement' as 'any building or other construction work to be paid for In whole or In. part by the use of funds of any municipality.' ' The Law on Notice. The next section provides for notice, as follows: 'Before any municipality shall enter into a contract for. any pub- five . the lic improvement to cost thousand dollars or more . governing body shall fix a time and place for hearing thereon . . equipped of this same ture, and to introduce ilds and let a contract subject to the comptroller's supervision, etc. >"o Appeal; No Bids. The procedure is similar to that under the Simmer act, provided an appeal is taken. If there is no appeal the city simply goes ahead and lets the contract. No call for, or consideration of, bids Is required if there is no appeal. City Attorney Bonar says this is the Code chapter under which the city has heretofore operated, and he is convinced that it is the appropriate and legal procedure. To laymen the presence and the wording of the two Code chapters is confusing, and in the absence of authoritative decision or decisions some questions, relative to the proper procedure in the case naw at issue might well puzzle both lawyers and courts also. Why Bids Not Asked. It is explained that the city is not asking for bids, because it is a Diesel engine of the same manu- now has , which Is wanted, and to ask for I bids when a product of specified manufacture is desired would be futile. The plant is now all Diesel- manufac- an engine of another make would not be to the plant's 'best interest, in the opinion of the mayor, council, and Supt. Kelly. The price asked for the equipment the city contemplates purchasing is well in line with that of other manufacturers who have the same type of equipment to offer: viz., 1000 h. p. 4-cycle 225 rpm. One of the great benefits of buying from the same manufacturer is that many parts are Interchang- a'ble, and so can be transferred from one engine to another, thus making it unnecessary to ibuy expensive duplicate parts. In the meantime the mayor and council say they beg to assure Interested citizens that they are not endeavoring to do anything under cover (this, they point out, is evidenced by the fact that notice was given and a hearing provided) ; that they will welcome and counteously hear objections, if any, next Monday night, and will carefully consider the same; and finally, that if it is shown that they are proceeding under the wrong statutes they will cheerfully change to the right proceed- ure, their only intention being to comply scrupulously with the law.
