of the duck ponds in the town and
getting the streets in shape for sur-
facing, He said that if a bond issue
in the amount of $97,000 could be
passed, all main business streets of
the city could be suifaced from curb
to curb and that the streets with
less traffic could have a good seal
coat to eliminate the dust,
The work could be done for less
money now than when the original
survey was made in 1952.
No other business was taken up at
the meeting Fiiday, and only a few
businessmen were present.
