Upland News, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1972, Upland, California Some In Christmcis-See The Pomona Section The Upland News Seventy-Eighth Year, No. 38 Upland, California, Thursday, December 14, 1972 48 Pages 10 Cents LOS OLIVOS: Back To The Drawing Board ly PATIICIA lEIft Of Tfci Stiff Representatives from Maddox- Stabler Construction Co. of Los Angeles, contractors for the Los Olivos Modernization project, were present at Monday's meet- ing of the Housing Authority of Upland to present a request for renegotiation of their original contract. The five commissioners had just received copies of a detailed letter sent to the Housing Au- thority Nov. 27 by Joseph Stab- ler of Maddox-Stabler Co. At the meeting Stabler reviewed the main points of the letter and rea- sons for renegotiation. These included: refuse to move into half modernized apartments. (This has caused contractors to work each group of units to com- pletion before starting another group and is a slower process.) in inspectors, con- tracting officer, architects and executive directors have caused problems of continuity in the su- pervision of construction. costs and increased time spent because of agree- ment in contract to employ resi- dents of the tract. Although a training program has been dis- continued, the contractors con- tinue to use tenants on the work force to "their financial detri- ment." delays and rising costs of materials has increased sub- contractors' costs. Theodore Criley Jr., Contract- ing Officer for the Housing Au- thority, wrote a reply to the con- struction company answering the points in the letter and indicat- ing that the Housing Authority "does not see any reason for not completing thejob under the pre- sent contract." Criley said the original con- tract provides for 10 units being worked on at a time, and that ten- ants were to move back into the units when the toilet, kitchen and cooking facilities were recon- nected; with the finishing of re- modeling work to be done while the units were occupied. He said that moving into un- completed units proved to be un- acceptable to tenants and that the construction company had agreed on Sept. 19 to have all work com- pleted and accepted before ten- ants moved back in. Criley presented a time sched- ule detailing the number of units which were completed on specific dates. Jerry Leggitt, executive direc- tor of the modernization project, reported that 12 units at a time were being turned over to the construction company at present and that no time lag had occurred since the present supervisory group has been in office. Under another schedule Criley estimated that completion of the modernization project of 98 units would occur on April 13, The original contract completion date was set for Jan. 23, 1973. All things considered, the pro- fessional staff agreed to grant the construction company 81 days extension on the completion date. 72 Building Permits Issued The Upland building depart- ment reports that 72 permits were issued in the month of No- vember totaling million in valuation. Housing led the statistics with 36 permits issued lor the con- struction of two homes and 112 apartments. The valuation of these developments totaled million. Additions and alterations brought 24 permits totaling while seven permits for repairs, garages and pools brought the issuance of seven permits with in valua- tion. Two commercial additions and alterations brought another in construction. A sign was con- structed for a telephone pole for and demolition for city statistics showed. N E WSPAPERfl R C HIV E He said, "We have recommended to the Commission that Change Order be executed for the total of 81 days extension but at no Change in contract cost." Criley stated that Housing Urban Development (HUD) offici- als wouldn't allow a renegotiation of the original contract. Criley also said the Housing Authority had reimbursed the company for retroactive pay for the time the work was shut down this summer. To date 62 units have been re- modernized. The commissioners didn't come to any conclusions at the meeting and agreed to discuss the matter further at a later date. A resolution was passed which will allow the Housing Authority of Upland to apply for 200 rent- subsidy houses which are part of a new Experimental Housing Al- lowance Program in the county of San Bernardino. Leggett ex- plained that the housing program is a new concept which will do away- with of .rent-subsidized housing and allow scattered houses thus, preventing the creation of "ghet- to areas.' The county will provide direct rental subsidies to low income families to enable them to select and lease existing, privately owned standard dwelling units for a period of two years; upon termination of such two year period, the Housing Authority of Upland will lease dwelling units in existing privately owned structures to provide housing for such families for an addi- tional three year period. City Attorney Donald R. Ma- roney said he wasn't sure how the 200 houses would be dis- tributed throughout Upland or Montclair. ff necessary a joint- powers agreement with Mont- clair could be made. Maroney said the question of the "Upland Housing. Authority passing over city boundaries wasn't as im- portant an issue as the basic premise of providing help to low income families. Mailing Deadlines Announced In Upland Projecting a holiday volume of nine billion pieces of mail this year, Upland Postmaster Charles L. announced a series of recommended mailing deadlines. Two of these deadlines should be remembered by every member of the household. They are: Dec. 15 Ikst day for mailing surface greetings within the United States; and Dec. 21 final date for posting all domestic airmail greetings and letters. Postal officials are quite con- fident that all mail deposited be- fore these suggested deadlines will be delivered in time for Christmas, which comes on a Monday this year. In an effort to help customers with their "wrapping" worries, the Postal service has publicized a number of helpful tips some of which are: If a single item is being mailed it should be cushioned with shred- ded paper, excelsior, com- pressed tissue paper, cloth, or expanded plastic foam. If two or more items are mailed in the same carton or box, cush- ioning material should protect all items from contact with each other, and each item should have its individual wrapper. Cardboard containers, includ- ing large soap, cereal boxes, etc., larger than the gift being mailed should be cut down to about the size of the gift to minimize shak- ing and breaking in transit. Fragile articles must be indi- vidually cushioned, and all four sides of the container should be padded with cushioning material. Tape used to seal containers should be durable type and should cover or secure firmly all flaps. hi SANTA'S HELPERS These petite little red and green elves can be seen helping Santa t in Upland Towri Center Saturday during the "Old Fashioned Christinas" ceiebrauon.

A- f w J m discussion concerning a proposed resolution amending the Basic Pay Plan for policement, Coun- cilman George Gibson questioned the zero amount of dollars shown in the budget document under the Police Department educational incentive pay.

City Manager Elwin "Pinky Alder explained how the figures in the incentive pay column of the budget were obtained. He said that negotiations with the Police Department were held and agree- ment was reached on certain amounts which were recommend- ed by administration and ap- proved by the council. Alder said the total amount approved for ed- ucational incentive pay was spread throughout the various classifications in the salary schedule. The resolution between the City of Upland and the Upland Police- Officers' Association calls for an increase in die Educational In- centive payable to Police Offi- cers commencing Jan. 1, (This is the second half of a pay raise already received some months aco.)
