(la.) Upptf DM Mofnw Thursdoy, July ti, Furst Resigns From Council Councilman Gene Furst, who Was elected from the second ware during Algona's 1955 election tendered his resignation at the regular meeting of the council Wednesday nipht, July 10. The resignation was read and accept rd. Furst's resignation, which will become effective July 22, is due to the fact he will be a resident of third ward instead of the ward he was elected to represeni originally. The remaining five members of the council will name a successor to Furst by ballot within a couple of weeks. A resident of the second ward will be selected. A hearing, set so the council can hear complaints of persons living in the east portion of Algona concerning storm sewers, was Set for 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 31. Walter Peterson purchased the old house and garage located on recently purchased city land across from the library for $50. The buildings were advertised for sale and no bids received. Peterson is to demolish the buildings and haul the material away. North Central Public Service Co. gave the fire department a used 1949 model panel truck for use in emergency and rescue operations. The truck will be outfitted and will serve as a first bid station on wheels when needed. A temporary storm sewer installation, between McGregor and State streets east of Durant street, was okayed by resolution. The project, which has been completed, will be paid for in part by property owners, who purchased the material. The city paid the cost of labor. The city and Faber Construc- tion'signed a contract for grading and laying out some streets in the East Side school area and a resolution, which will allow the state highway department to widen highway 18, was passed. Several building permits, mostly for new sidewalks, were granted. They went 'to Hugh Raney, A. J. Klooster, Al Agena, Dick Meyer, Harriett B. Heitei, Mrs Swan Lundh, Norris Rousseau, Alfred Schultz, H. W. Miller, Lydia Wetzel, Frank Duerr and Skelly OU Co. Bicycle violations, which have become prevalent since schools were dismissed in May, were discussed. There will be a concentrated effort by local peace officers against offenders, especially those riding on sidewalks, riding double, going through stop signs, etc., in the business district, where most recent complaints have originated. Complaints against youngsters disturbing the peace late at night in town may result in the city's curfew ordinance being used.
