CALL COLLECT FOR AFTER HOUR APPOINTMENT RHOADES srA~,N6 ('lARK G,~I,E VB'IEN LEI(;lt LESIJE OLhlk ALABAMA water system, previously sub- mitted to the Federal Housing and Urban renewal agency will now have to be resubmitted to a regional "Clearing house" in Tallahassee, according to infor- mationreceived by City of- ficials. The purpose ,of the clearing house is to "Clear" all applications for Federal Grants or loans, apparently to prevent "Overlapping" of like federal projects. When the application was made a few months back, the Office in Atlanta advised of- ficials that the initial action on the loan would be made through the Regional ofhce, but at that tim~ the exact location was not known. The Clearing House will have the request for study for 30 days before final action is taken. Mayor Gene Clary, Coun- cil president John W. Harrison and Clerk Bill Hurston studied the new information Friday, and agreed to resubmit the applica- tion, containing the same infor- mation as previously submitted. which includes the area the water system will be expanded to cover, number of sub- scribers and estimated cost. The areas that have submitted petitions for annexation to the city for the purpose ot receiving water service are located on the west side. and also on the southeast side. with an esti- mated cost ot $25.000. which includes the necessary cost of a consulting engineers fees. An estimated 30 subscribers would be added tD the water system should the annexation be ap- proved. The prolect will pro- bably be up for turther discus- sion during the regular sche- duled council meeting this Thursday, February 3. espec- ially in connection with those special elections that will be re- quired, one each in the peti- tioned areas and in the City. The council can select one of tWD routes namely the elections can be held now during the period the proposed loan is being pro- cessed, to see ~l annexation is approved by those seeking it, with an understanding, that if the loan is disapproved, the annex- ation would be left out, ~r all voting will be held when and if the loan is approved: Action on resubmitting the loan appli- cation to the Regional clearing house, required no official council action. Buying habits are influ- enced by the weather, accord- ing to a recent report issued in a leading women's business magazine. For every degree of temperature below normal on any day in the spring, and for every ~legree above normal on any day in the fall, sales will drop off one per cent. And with every one-tenth inch of rain that falls between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. on any day sales are inevitably depressed by one per cent.
