Wafer, Sewer ore issue In the city election Monday, May 9, Clare residents will decide whether to modernize and enlarge the water system, -and vote in a separate question on how the city shall pay for an improvement scheduled for Glare's sewer treatment system. These proposals have been the subject of official study and debate by the city commission since 1959 and" a water improvement plan was voted down in one previous election. But the present proposals list wider and more complete municipal benefits. They also provide for easier methods of paying for the projects. Freedom Fighter Talks ToHS Class Leslie Molnar, of Grand Rapids was a guest speaker Monday May 2, 1966 at Clare High School. He visited Forrest B. Meek's World Geography and Con- temporty Civilization classes. Molnar is a native of Hungary. He fled his home- An entirely new condition has entered the picture .with the State asking for completion of the new sewage treatment plant by October 1 this year and showing, determination to forc^pie City of Clare to comply;' City Manager Glen Cain and Commissioner Roy Dunbar, commenting this week on the election issues said that the improvements in water supply and distribution are needed principally for fire safety, public health and the city's economic growth. In the case of the proposed borrowing to pay for a secondary sewage treatment facility, the decision to construct the 5-acre aeration pond and a pumping station has already been made. or roughly one and one-half times Clare's I960 census size. Capacity of the expanded water system would also'permit service to the city of future residential and industrial growth. It would even encourage such growth. In the view of the present commission the length of usefulness of the expanded facilities is 40 years, but many elements of the project would have indefinite periods of usefulness much longer than 40years. Construction on June 1 this year of the secondary sewage treatment facility' is to comply with a Michigan Water Resources demand to abate pollution of the Tobacco River. Approval of Clare's lagoon system- was obtained from the State Health Commission last year and completion is timed on or before October 1, 1966. Eighty to 90 percent removal of contamination in sewage is to be effected by settling and aeration in the new lagoon. A 'Yes" vote on the proposal to borrow part of the money for this project will enable the city to use federal funds for the remainder of the cost. If the proposal fails in Monday's election, the project must go ahead anyway but the city will be forced to bear the entire cost without aid. In the most direct terms the issues are this: Proposal 1 is for the land with his wife and dauf „„,„„- „„„„,.•„„ i~„™„ ,„j -i-.. _*..__ .t._ „i,.J^"- -sewage aeartion lagoon and &aoxm%?*e, pumping station with ghter after the coup in 1956.
