The Eglin Field unit dispat- ched a 1600 gallon truck to the city immediately after re- ceiving the request for assis- tance, and remained at the scene throughout the 2-day emergency period. Water wa hauled from Florala at the offer of the of- ficials of that city. The trouble was brought about when an underground cable was accidentally cut at the new high school construction site, which apparently placed the pump on low voltage, causing it to burn out. The council took action to install an overload switch that will eliminate future low voltage damage. In other related corrective action, council acted to get a cost estimate of replacing oil bearings and other needed repair, including installation of an older Turbine pump, in order to be able to incorporate a gasoline powered auxiliary unit to the system for use in case of pump failure. The submer- sible type pump, now in use, has no provisions for auxiliary unit, and when replaced by the turbine unit, will be kept for use in another well, now being considered by council. In other action council set the week of September 17 - 21 as annual city-wide clean up date. Residents are requested to clean up their property and place the debris on street by Wednesday so that pickup can be completed by Friday. In discussing the need to speed up communications between city officials in case of emergencies, council voted to purchase two radio sets for installation in the cars of fire chief and city maintenance sup- ervisor. They also voted to adopt City Ordinance number 160, authorizing council to an- nex to the city contiguos land in an area on paved road south east side of the city boundary. Property owners in the area, already receiving city water services, petitioned council for this action. In related action, council also adopted City Ordinance number 136A, which ammended section 7 of City Ordinance number 136. This will allow present and prospective residents, having more than one residence or trailer, to use an established water meter for 60 days before being required to have one of their own. Councilman Austin Clary was appointed by Council President Pate as safety and licence com- missioner. Council approved minutes of last regular and special meet- ings, monthly financial state- ment and voted to pay all out- standing bills. only three weeks to go for the first anniversary of our class. It looks like now we will miss our 2 tons weight loss by a few pounds. But if we had a few more men to do as well as the three we have, it wouldn't take long. One of our men lost 10 pounds this week. Take courage men, if you want to lose weight, and go by the safe, healthful way, of the Weight Watchers food program and feel good.
