was set down for Saturday Jan lights are the accompanying 3 iat at the Council's regular meeting The city charter provides that the city may carry over into the new year under the old budget if necessary Three items were mainly re- sponsible for the proposed in- creases to continue wage increases approved this year in special ment bonds an item which has not been shown as part of the general budget and 365 for capital outlay Unbiased Picture Mr Allison said he considered it to be his duty as city manager to give as clearly as possible an unbiased picture of the city's problems and to apprise the erning body and the citizens of the financial and physical tions of the city But despite the enormity of the heeds Mr Allison observed It does not present an sible situation but merely means we are going to have to our year-to-year miss method of improvement and develop a long-range ment based on a sound fiscal policy Highlights Of Message Following are highlights of Mr Allison's streets are in fair to bad condition and are of a type that are not adapted to the kind of have exception of the old paved streets which were constructed and the cost assessed to the abutting property we have miles of light type surfacing which is cheap to lay hut very expensive to maintain To give a concrete example Mr Allison cited the poor con- dition of Ogden's streets in ruary of this year Yet 000 of Class C road money was spent on the streets during the summer of 1951 This clearly demonstrates how far behind quate maintenance has lagged He said a goodly mileage of Ogden's paved streets due to deferred are at a point now where unless they are resurfaced in the near future the bases will be damaged beyond repair A portion of this can be done each year but at the present rate of revenue it is going to require a minimum of five years to get the major traffic ways in first class condition Secondary Water Supply badly needs rehabilitation Many need and a general renovation of park structures is urgent The Mt Ogden Park which has a high potential as a recreational area is undeveloped It does not seem rational to start the development of this park until our existing park system has been brought up to standard Municipal over- condition of the ing must be soon recognized It is not possible to have efficient and satisfactory operation of the department when they are scattered over four floors Need Sewage Plant Sewer The city soon will be forced to install a sewage ment plant due to heavy con- below the outfall in Weber River As the situation stands when the low flow comes during the summer the farmers below the outfall have practically nothing but the age with which to irrigate There are areas in Ogden where sewage backs into ments due to heavy infiltration of water Some sewers that were laid to be used as gravity lines are now operating under pressure due to overloading the older sections of the city do not have sufficient facilities Some of major must be re- placed Need Ogden does not have a favorable insurance rate It is hoped next inspection of un- will improve the ent rate by at least two grades There is evident need for two additional one in the west portion and one in the south portion of Ogden The stadium is badly ated the board fence will soon have to be replaced the log stands have been condemned and cannot be used in the future The mechanical ski lift at Snow Basin will to be replaced in the future the public demand for another swimming pool is not far off and there has long been a demand for the enlargement of the city golf course Among the urgent the city manager continued is con- struction of a new shelter for the dog pound Re said another major problem is traffic the downtown section The solution of this problem will tion system is in heed of much j work There are sections of town Mr AUison told the Council where it is not possible to tain an adequate supply during heavy demand months The de- velopment of the petitioned water supply must be studied and would require a terial capital outlay Parks Due to deferred Arizonan Admits Taking PHOENIX Ariz AP A mild-mannered cashier in the Maricopa County treasurer's of- fice who
