Visit Saline's International Bazaar -- Friday, Saturday ,,e2z? The Saline VOLUME 14, NUMBER 49 ~ WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 1963 10c PER COPY — $3 PER YEAR City to Re-Apply for Federal Aid for Disposal Expansion Savings Bank to Move to New Site City Council Monday night, after a conference with a bonding expert from Michigan Municipal League, launched action to re-apply for federal aid for the proposed sewer disposal expansion program. Although the city's application for a federal grant last year was turned down, Saline will be in a "very favorable" position this year, according to the League representative, Richard Studt, since communities higher on the Ust last year are now taken care of. Another factor that will give Saline a higher "critical need" figure is a recent written agreement concluded with the state health department, obligaing sewer plant expansion before any additional demand is made on the disposal capacity. A federal grant would pay up to $60,000 toward the $210,000 expansion program, designed to provide capacity for Meha retirement village as weU as other growth. But funds for a new water tower and mains would have to come from other sources. The remainder of (the funds could come either through general obligation bonds or revenue bonds, but SaUne is "in an excellent position, both legally and financiaUy" for either, said Studt. General obligation bonds would require voter approval of additional millage . . . but it might be possible that the bonds could be paid for without actually levying the miUage. Proceeds of connection charges plus surplus revenues now amount to about $12,000 a year, Studt pointed out. Revenues and connection charges from 'Meha would increase the amount. CouncU authorized application for the federal grant, which must be in by September 1, and a special meeting was set Monday, August 26, to pursue the matter. Grants are made and recipients notified by November 1. Norman A. Brown Named County 4-H Extension Agent Norman A. Brown, a native of Temperance and vocational agriculture teacher at Bath for the past two years, will be the new county extension agent in 4-H Club work in Washtenaw county. Brown wiU assume his new duties on September 1, and is employed subject to official action by the Michigan State University board of trustees at its September meeting, according to Don Johnson, county extension director.

School Board Sets 12.5 for Operation An architect's sketch, above, shows the Salme Savings Bank's new 3,500 square foot building to be started soon. "The steady growth of the bank, plus the desire to offer extended service, through more automatic banking facilities have prompted the expansion program," according to William Crim, Sr., president. Advantages of the plan include a large, modern workroom for bookkeeping, high level lighting, sound control, and an organized operations layout to provide an environment that is both efficient and comfortable for employees. The new site is one block east of the present building, at 114 E. Michigan Ave. Complete banking service, including two drive-in windows and a walk-up window, are planned.
