The Saline Reporter VOLUME 15, NUMBER 6 - WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1962 Free Parking in City Lot May be Approved 10c PER COPY — $3 PER YEAR Removal of parking meters from the city parking lot, on a three-months' trial period, has been recommended to the City CouncU by the planning commission. The recommendation followed a joint meeting of Council, the planners, and a dozen downtown businessmen and Chamber of Commerce members, Tuesday evening. The trial free-parking period in the lot would include the months of November, December and January, to benefit mer- Saline Hotel To Move to New Site The Saline Hotel will move to a new location and erect a restaurant and motel, its owner, Henry Leutheuser, said today. Earlier plans to rebuild the hotel restaurant at its downtown location will either be abandoned or adapted, Leutheuser and his son, Eugene, said. Leutheuser, who has taken a four-months' option to purchase the Harvey Kluwe property at the east edge of the city, hopes to be in operation there "by next fall" — plans include a restaurant larger than the one planned here, and a motel of at least 12 units. The proposed site is now occupied by a restaurant, "Carl's Place", which will be demolished to make way for the new construction, Leutheuser said. Kluwe has been in business there since 1930; "Carl's Place" was opened by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Kluwe, in 1929. Kluwe has "absolutely no plans", he said today. Neither are there any positive plans for the present Saline Hotel site and building, Leutheuser said. AetuaUy, only the restaurant part of the building remains; the two-story hotel section was torn down this summer and architect's drawings for expansion were underway. The building to be constructed on the Kluwe property will be larger, and will provide more adequate parking space for both restaurant and motel, Leutheuser said. It includes 20 acres, nearly all inside the city limits. chants through their holiday and post-holiday sales. The planning commission will then make a study to learn how much revenue was lost "by the absence of meters, and how much benefit merchants feel they received from the free facility, Jack Craigmile, planning commission chairman, said. The commission doesn't feel it would aid businessmen by removing meters from the street, he said; these will be retained to keep parking places for transient traffic. Councilmen at the meeting indicated they would approve the recommendation, after a unanimous show of approval . from the businessmen present. " The next" regular meeting of Council is Monday, November 5. A possible disadvantage of the plan, Craigmile said, is that "we are not in a position to obtain additional parking lots unless we have the revenue. Some form of revenue, presumeably from the municipal lot, is needed to project further lots in the future. If the revenue is not sufficient without the meters in the present lot, then where is it going to come from?" A number of businessmen at the meeting, however, said they believe the present lot is adequate and another will not be needed. Said Craigmile: "But the problem is to look ahead for what will be needed in the future." A planning commission com- Schools Outline Bus Plan for Emergency School officials, after an emergency meeting with teachers WeJlnesday morning, issued the following announcement: In the event of any attack warning, the school buses will leave from the Elementary School and follow their regular procedure. They will take town children from the Elementary School only; from that point they will follow normal loading procedure except that children of the other two schools who live in town will be asked to walk home immediately. Buses are to he parked at the Elementary School during the day until further notice. A teacher has been assigned to each bus, to prevent panic and assist children in getting out and crossing roads. The assigned teacher will drive the bus in the event the regular driver does not arrive in time. In any event the assigned teacher will go with the bus on the trip. We request that parents do NOT come to school with, their cars. In the evenf that they attempt to come despite our request, do not attempt to enter the area within a block of any school. Teachers will be assigned, with flares, to stop traffic if necessary, at the High School exit on N. Ann Arbor St., Aim Arbor and McKay streets, Lawson St., the railroad track, and Harris street. If people let us do our job, we will get the children home easier and faster than they can. We can get the chilctren home within the expected range of time after a warning is given, providing w<* aTe not interfered with.
