Rate For later-Sewer The Clare City Commission's special meeting Tuesday evening to make a final decision on new water and sewer rates produced a unanimous decision to charge $56. per year for the city's 740 unme- tered residential customers. A rate as high as $65. had been recommended and considered and present cost is $37.33. Industrial me- ■^ tered rates will go up for the first 20 thousand gallons from$9.35 to $12.15 and heavier users will be billed at proportionately higher rates per thousand. The way residential customers will pay for services under the new formula is this: Water will be $28. I**. p*63^year, -no change from I? ' cie present rate, and sewer service will increase from $9.33 charged at present to $28. making the total of $56. . Added revenue is expec- | ted to total $21,595,80 per | year, or just enough to meet . water bond payments of y. $21,420.00. The Board received an interim report from its committee investigating various types of relocatable classrooms. Of the many firms in this field only four, or five, will probably warrant serious consideration. Plans are being made to visit units installed by these companies in the area. Four classroom units will be purchased and installed for elementary use next September. A tentative budget for the 1967-68 school year was reviewed and approved prior to its submission to the County Allocation Board. Superintendent Snyder emphasized that the local schools will face a serious financial crises during the coming year unless there is another very substantial . increase in state aid, or additional local tax support. In other actions, the Board began study of basic policies covering the area of adult education, approved a three year contract for the superintendent and authorized payment of $62,931 in principal, interest and fees on the 1962 building program debt.

Caught between the Michigan legislature's demand that reapportionment be achieved by all county supervisors this month, and the Supreme Court opinion that the State constitution forbade it, Clare county will be ready and then wait for a U.S. Supreme Court test that is certain to come. The scene in county courthouses all over Michigan this week was one of "hurry up and wait", as supervisors scrambled to approve plans for the new apportionment and then pigeon-hole them until the courts test the whole idea. At least, if new apportionment is found to be acceptable, the resolutions will have been adopted and Giant Adds Midland Store L.A. Walton, president of Giant Super Markets, Inc., announced today that Giant Super Markets has purchased the Hamady Super Market in Midland, This will make the Giant chain now operating ten super markets in central and northern Michigan with stores ih Mt. Pleasant, Alma, Big Rapids, Clare, Traverse City, Cadillac, Ludington, Alpena, Owosso and two stores in Midland. Giant also advertises and buys co-operatively with Ray's Food Fair stores in Saginaw and Bay City, At the time of the announcement, Mr. Walton also stated that two more Giant Super Markets are on the planning board for northern Michigan. the matter will not become the responsibility of the bi-partisan commissions which the legislature said would act if supervisors failed to comply. Michigan's Supreme Court, voting 5 to 3 upheld the clause in the State's constitution that provides that each township must be represented on the Board of Supervisors by at least one member. The opinion was advisory and asked for by the attorney general. The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in several similar cases is expected In a few months.
