City Engineer Pat Byrne told the commission that the condition of water mains and lines in the Beverly Heights area, part oI Stewarts addition outside the City, and some areas on Mr. View was very poor and that repiaeement was needed soon. He said the lines in Shultz Addition were too sma to carry the amount of water need-' ed t() serve the area adequately, al- though they were not the main- tenance prOblem that the other ar- eas were. The commission discussed the possibility of forming an LID for the repair work. Byrne said he had cost esti- mates prepared in his office. THE COMMISSION ALSO vo- ed to have the city laws codified by the Book Publishing Co. of Se- attle. The firm made a proposal to the city to do the job for between $3,500 and $4,000. The commission agreed to pay the firm $1,000 this year, which would carry the worl through the initial phases after which an accurate estimate of the cost of the work can be made. Byrne said it was necessary to purchase two new tires for the city's Recreation Program bus and that two more would be needed next year. HE SAID THE JAYCEES have enlisted the aid of other service clubs and plan to have Callanan Park in shape for use by the pub- lic soon. He said the city had agreed to put the water and sewer lines to temporary rest room facil- ities. The commismon was informed that arrangements had beGn made to have a representative of Cas- cade Natural Gas Company at the next commission meeting to dis- cuss inspection of gas installa- tions in the city. The commission asked that any- one interested to attend the meet- ing July 23 at 2 p.m. to get ans- wers to their questions.

LYON recommended in his re- port that membership cards, which were tried this year before the buttons were obtained be discon: ttnued for next year'. The gin- bership Cards were not arc.opted  y the public, Lyon said, and sales of them were light. "Most of the sales were made after the middle of April", Lyon said. "when the buttons were av- ailable." The group voted to extend con- gratulations to the Rotary Club, wmel handled the ticket sale. and to Lyon for the successful ask Rotary Club to take charge sale this year. They also voted to }al officials and committee chair- men heard several reports, large- ly favorable, and then voted to set the dates of the 1964 event for May 2:[, 22 and 23 to get an erly sta;t for next year hen,, they met last Thursday night. Financial reports indicated that the event this year came out a liltle in the black, despite several additional expenses such as the purchase of new street pennants and more trips for the Festival Royalty. Bud Lyon, .button sales chair- man. reported that income from button sales was $3,326.01 for the event this year, more than double PUD 1 Manager Going To Ciailum County PUD of the button sales for the 1964 Festival.

Turner asked that anyone who still has bills which have not been tun]ed in get them in so 'the fin- ancial records can be completed. ORVILLE ANDERSON, Queen's Banquet Chairman, said that at- tendance at the banquet was np this year but. still fell short of the goal. He reported that 232 attended. Anderson said the biggest prob- lem in selling tickets to the ban- quet appeared to be that people still think that it is a more or less "closed" affair for a selected group despite extensive publicity that it was open to the public. Parade chairman A. Roy Dunn said that the parade went off well and that expenses were kept to a minimum under the circumstanc- es. Poster Contest Chairman Bill Looney said that there were an excellent group of posters entered this year, particularly from Irene -S. Reed high school and that part of the program was successful. THE GROUP voted tO express appreciation to Simpson and the Christmas Tree group for having their floats in the Olympia Lake- fair parade. The group voted to express aP- preciation to President Clive Troy Ior his work in making the Festi- val a success. Troy appointed Rocky Hembroff, Los Shelver and Glcnn Correa to the nominating committee to se- lect candidates for president, vice president and five trustee posts to be voted on at the September meeting. There will bc no August meet- ing of the Festival Association. M. D. PARRETT Goes to Clalium County PUD M. D.
