Favors If Second Liquor Warehouse Authorizes By Frank Nye DES MOINES If the legifr lature okays constriifctiorr'pf a second state liquor warehouse it should be located "in the area of Cedar ac- cording to Director Holland Gallagher of the Iowa beer and liquor commission. However, Gallagher said, it appears advantages to be gained (from a satellite warehouse) do not justify the additional expenditures In support of a Cedar Rapids area location, he pointed out the city is the ap- proximate center of the east- ern section of Iowa and a warehouse there could service 29 counties with 67 stores that account for 40 percent of the state's annual liquor sales. Gallagher said planned new stores at Durant and Dubuque will bring the number of .tores to 69 soon. Gallagher made the state- ments in a report prepared for the house-senate state de- partments appropriations sub- committee, of which Rep. Wally Horn (R-Ccdar Rapids) is a member. Horn said he has been in- formed by Robert Faxon, ex- ecutive director of the Cedar Rapids Chamber of Com- merce, that the city has the five acres Gallagher said is needed for a warehouse on ground adjacent to both the interstate highway and railroads. Gov. Robert Ray recom- mended the legislature spend million for a new liquor warehouse. Such a building should con- tain only .square feet if added to Ihe state's only present warehouse at Camp Dodge near DCS Moines. Million Cost But a new warehouse built outside Des Moines would have to be about square feet, Gallagher said, and would lake million lo build instead of million. (i a 11 a g h e r said present warehousing needs of the commission "are being inade- quately served by the squaro-foot facility nt Camp Dodge." He snid the Cmup Dodge building went into npenilinn in mid .since (hen the num- ber of items carried has more than tripled and the number of .cases of liquor handled has doubled. "This lack of space has caused many serious prob- lems, all of which have great- ly reduced operating effi- ciency of the storage and dis- tribution Gallagher said. The question, Gallagher said, is whether to build an addition to the present ware- house or build a second ware- house. He said both courses have "distinct advantages and disadvantages." Improve Service A Cedar Rapids warehouse would improve service, to the eastern side of Iowa and at a transportation saving of be- tween to a year, Gallagher said. Products received from the eastern U.S. would save more money through lower freight rates, he continued, while the opposite would be true of products coming from the west. A second warehouse, how- ever, would require additional staff which would not be nec- essary if the Camp Dodge warehouse were expanded. Another disadvantage would be the necessity of providing some duplicate equipment for a second warehouse, which would not be needed in an ad- dition al Camp Dodge. He estimated annual dupli- cation costs would run to Inventory control and com- munications would be prob- lems at a warehouse outside DCS Moines, he said, even as it is now at Camp Dodge. "A building could lie con- structed and leased back lo the department for between and per year, or a minimum of over ,a 15-year Gal- lagher said. "If an adequate existing building were available it could possibly be leased for less Fuel Savings Concluding his report, Gal- lagher snid: "From a service viewpoint there is no question but that a ,second warehouse .offers, the potential forj vast improve- ment of service to Eastern Iowa. "Splitting the workload be- tween two locations could also improve the over-all service to the remaining 70 counties as well. "The satellite warehouse would also be the only accept- able alternative if saving gas- oline and diescl fuel was the primary criterion used in eval- uating the two proposals. "However, the costs in- volved in achieving either ob- j e c t i v c are substantially higher than if the existing warehouse were expanded. "Some of the other disad- vantages inherent in the operation of a second ware- house could be alleviated in time through extensive use of electronic data processing and remote terminals; but again, not without additional costs in equipment and manpower. "At this time, it appears the potential advantages to be gained by establishing a satel- lite warehouse do not justify the additional, expenditures that would be required to achieve them."
