The difference between the cost of rent and the amount the tenants are able to pay will be paid by the Federal Housing Administration Planning Director Don Salyer presented recommendations on ihe choice of a developer made by the Oak Hill liaison commit-lee and the urban renewal joard. DCS Moines Firm Both groups favored a plan submitted by Oak Hill Manor Ltd., Des Moines, which calls for 96 apartments located in one single-story building and four two-story buildings. Second choice of the liaison committee was J.R. Stewar Construction Co. of Blue Springs, Mo., which calls for 82 apartments in eight Selection iill Developer structures and a combination one-, two-and three-story building, The urban renewal board, however, picked Unicare Services, Inc., of Milwaukee as a second choice. Joint Selection All six devcloncrs were required lo bid for the land, a price set by the FHA. The selection will be made by Ihe city council and the FHA on Ihe basis of experience, financing, managment plan, design and objectives. Salyer suggested the council wait a week before making a selection, so FHA could be alerted lo the recommendations and make sure there are no problems with the bids.

Damage A large earthen dam on the Emery Throckmorton farm southeast of Alburnett has caused damage to drainage district tile and a county road and will do more damage if not removed. That was part of a report made to Linn supervisors Tuesday by Ray Rystrom, an engineer who studied drainage district No. 1 for the board. Supervisors moved to have their attorney meet with Throckmorton; Leland Burns, who is purchasing the land from Throckmorton; Rystrom, and Asst. County Engineer Jerry Nelson about the situation. Legal Action ..There w'as talk about possible legal action, but the board attorney said that if the seller and buyer agree to remove the dam it will not be necessary to go to court. Gene.. Dunn, a. real estate broker involved in the sale, said Burns would not, be opposed to removing the dam. said the dam has backed up water over a county road and .'.caused surface water to be forced through Darn for to Tile, Road pipes that were not intended tc carry such a heavy load.
