the west of Itenta who have been
striving for the past four years to
have the city council authorize the
hard-surfacing of Foster Road and
the construction of a trunk sewer
for the district finally were rewarded
with success yesterday when the
city council, by unanimous vote of
four members present, overruled the
remonstrance filed against the pro
ject and passed an ordinance to pro

The special session of the council
was devoted to hearing the remon-

The only change in the arguments
came near the close pf the session,
when Mrs. George W. Chilson and
other persons who have been against

objections if the city council would

Baker declared it was probable that
both units could be constructed at
the same time.
City Engineer lAurgaard estintated
that the entire sewer would cost th-
property owners approximately $6X
for each 50-foot lot. City Commis
sioner Barbur explained that it was
probable that the sewer would be
constructed in a number of units in
order to give the smaller contractors
an opportunity to bid and thus bring
cheaper prices In the bids that will
be offered the city for the work.
