The Shelton City Commission Tuesday voted to take a 90-day option on a piece of property across the creek to the North of City Hall. Mayor Frank Travis Jr.. com- menting on the action, said there are no plans at present for any ex- pansion of city hall facilities, but, I:hat indications of grow[7 of the city would probably make it nec- essary in the future. The city is acquiring the prop- erty now when it is available, be- 3ause, when property is needed for xpansion, it probabIy would not be available as close to the pres- ent city hall. the mayor said. THERE IS AN appartment house on the property which the city is buying from Mrs. Grace Beckwith. The operation of the partment house will be contin- ued just as it is at present, Travis mid. "Cost of the property will be $25.000. Travis said the raceme from the apartments will be more than sufficient to pay the inter- est on funds necessary for the purchase. Travis emphasized that the city has no plans to develop the prop- erty for city pnrposes at present. he commission voted to reject both bids received on storm sewer work. on Pioneer Way Monday. The action was taken on the rec- emendation of City Supervisor Pat Byrne. Byrne said that temporary work would be done to protect the street this winter, and. in the spring bids would be sought again, or, if possible, the work would be done with city crews. THE REJE(;TED BIDS were well above the engineer's esti- mate of the cost of the project. This was the second time bids were called. A singTe bid received in an earlier ca:l was rejected when it proved to be almost double the engineer's estimate. The commission granted per- mission for Mrs. Susie Pauley, to have a low concrete wall installed in front of the Ming Tree Care to keep water from being splashed front the street nto the sidewalk and side of the building. . Police Chief Paul Hinton asked if something could be done about' the lack of sidewalks on Hillcrest where school children cross High- way 101. He said there were no sidewalks on the East side of the highway, and. when the children get across, they must walk on the 'oad. City Clerk Mrs. Alma Carte told the board a donation of $150 had been received from the Zonta'<Cub for the city's 'ecreation fund. Mayor Travis exlressed thanks to the club for. its. zsistance. :*' Simpson Names Rigging Foreman For 6risdale Promotion of Herbert F. Breh- meyer.
