6 Sheridan Sun, Sheridan, Oregon, Thursday, July 12, 1979 / (~i!~iii (/iiii,i i .... B.v Margaret Henkels A motion allowing sub- dividers to pay the recreation land charges in single unit amounts was passed at a special Sheridan City Council meeting held luesday. A separate savings account will be set up fl~r such funds which will be earmarked as park development funds. This action allows Sheridan sub- dividers to pay the land fees set by the council as each building permit is granted, spreading the payments out over a period of time. Residents from Grant and Edi.gon Streets were present at the meeting to discuss whether the city or street residents should pay fbr street paving for their streets. The residents protested that other chv streets were paved at city expense. Sheridan mayor Ralph Matlack staled that not since Hill Street had the city paid for street paving. "Since about 1973." said Matlack. "Sheri- dan City Council set a policy that property owners would bear the brunt of paving their streets." A meeting time was set between City Superinten- dent Bob Helms and the Grant and Edison Street residents to discuss possible funding sources for their road work. Andy Klein of Klein Con- suiting Engineers gave an update of the Sheridan water project. A tube settler will be installed as a part of the equipment solving the tur- bidity problem. Klein added that although he is still refining the cost estimates, electric utility work for the project will be a large portion of the project's total cost. Present project construction is limited to the driving of pilings at the treatment center site. Klein said that a project report will be completed by the end of July and. Submitted to the Farmers Home Admini- stration in early August for funding approval. It is hoped that the pump station will be completed by fall and the treatment plant construction will begin this winter.

"We have received calls of inquiry about the possibility of storing extra fuel in the trunks of cars ~ I would like to emphasize that this is an extremely dangerous prac- tice," Vickery stressed. "Depending on the heat within the trunk, tire gasoline can rapidly expand, releasing flammable vapors. Then, any type of spark can cause an explosion," he said. "Also, rear-end collisions, or any type of accident, could puncture the container, also causing a fire." Vickery also outlined pro- cedures for the storage of gasoline in a private resi- dence. "Actuailythere is no reason to store gasoline in a private residence other than for fuel for a lawn mower, etc. In a home the storage should never exceed one gallon, in an approved container, and al- ways away from any source of heat," he explained. "In an outbuilding the storage can be up to ten gallons (two, five gallon approved containers), and again away from any heat /7" PAYS 7"0 AI) VERI'/SE... ADVERT/ E WHERE /TPAY$...
