City Mulls ' Water, Sewer For Park Development of Callanan Pm ms progressed about as far as .'an until water and sewer lines ::or r'st room facilities, and, for ase in watering plants, the Shel- :on City Commissmn was told Tuesday night. " A delegation of Jaycees ap- peared at the commissic{n meeting to ask if the city had funds av- il.'ble to install" the water and sewer lines. City u)mr':isor Pat Byrne said he h;d mi(te a rough estimate o: !./n)nt $2.300 for just matvrials to :11 the waLer and sewer 1.o where ',,e 1)}ms eaii for the permaneI ,.s room facilities. MAYOR FRANK TRAVIS said that there was no provision flz the 1963 budget for the work and it was doubtful if that amount of funds could be squeezed out. Arnold Fox, acting as spokes- man for the Jaycees.-said the , group had been working on the park with the idea it could be put into shape for use by the public this summer. Byrne suggested the possibility of temporary restroom facilities for this summer in a location clo- ser to existing water and sewer lines. Travis said tills appeared to be the best bet and suggested city officials and Jaycee representa- tives explore the possibility. iF SUCH A PLAN could be worked out, Travis said, the com- mission would do its best to find the money some place in the bud- get to get the job done. The Jaycees also asked the city to establish the grade on E street so the planned parking lot can be graded off. Byrne said he would get this done. Byrne reported to the commis- sion that the contractor's work on the repair of the Angle Way slide area was complete. A letter was received from Con- gresswoman Julia Butler Hansen stating she had contacted the Community Facilities Corporation about the city's request for funds under the Accelerated Public Works Program and that a check on the status of the request was in progress. Police Chief Paul Hinton said 1963 dog licenses are now avail- able and that the 1962 licenses expire June 30. Licenses purch- by the board at the Monday re- ased now will be good until June organization meeting. 30, 1964, he said.
