By.Alike Deupree A public hearing June 5 will help (lie city council decide how to use in feder- al revenue sharing, due be- tween July 1, 1971, and June 30.1975. JCJjy HcdtNotes: That will bring to almost million (lie amount of reve- nue sharing ailthorized in Cedar Kapids in the three years (he program has been operating. Quite a windfall, all that extra cash, isn't it'.' o a NO, IT isn't, in the view of city officials. They think fed- eral revenue sharing may be costing the city up to mil- lion a year. The state and local fiscal assistance act of 1972, which provides for revenue sharing, was supposed to be "new money" given to cities and counties with less red tape than the old categorical grant system of federal funding. The idea, as it was ex- plained prior to the act's pas- sage, Mayor Don Canney said, was to give more flexibility in the use of the funds to local decision-makers. Local governments were as- sured the program would have no effect on existing pro- grams. Cedar Rapids received its first revenue sharing check on Dec. 11, 1972. Less than a month later George Romney, then secretary of housing and urban development made u speech in Houston and the roof foil in. Romney announced a series of freezes, suspensions and impoundments. One of the first effects noticed in Cedar Rapids involved an applica- tion for funds for the million Kenwood ditch storm sewer project. "We had that application in, and bourn, it came back to said Intergovernmental Coordinator Tom Aller. o THE APPLICATION went back to the desk of Public Im- provements Commissioner Richard Phillips, with a note saying, in effect, "We aren't funding that kind of tiling any- more." A! about the same time, applications for for three open spaces programs came back. Later, a request for about for land acquisition in the Vinton ditch project came back. Practically all the federal sources of funds for water pollution control, housing pro- grams, water and sewer faci- lities and open spaces sud- denly weren't sources of funds any "longer. There is no way to directly tie revenue sharing to the cut- backs, Canney said, but it's hard to believe the two are unrelated. The federal budget, like any other, has only so much money available. When a new program (revenue sharing) is created, calling for expendi- tures of about billion per Clements To Be Honored A public reception honorin, Ralph Clements for 30 years o service on the public librar board of trustees will be heli next Sunday. The event will be from 2 to m. in the Stewart Memoria ounge of Gage Memorial union at Coe college. Clements' three decades or ;he board of trustees is the long est term of service ever servet on a municipal board or com mission.

VOTE JUNE IFOR Stan Ginsberg Democrat Linn County Supervisor Clements served a stint at The Gazette before joining the staff at Stamats. Upon his retirement from Stamats he served several years as public relations direc- tor at Coe. The library board of trustees and the Friends of the Library will co-host next Sunday's re- ception. Serving with Dr. Ram- stad on the committee are Mrs. Kingsley Grant and Mrs. John Carpenter. Mike Deupree year, the money has to come from somewhere. Part of Aller's job is keep- ing tabs on pending legislation that might affect cities, and coordinating grant applica- tions. 90 HE SAID the city was re- ceiving about million in federal fund s each year through categorical programs, and is now getting less than million each year in revenue sharing. Besides the projects men- tioned earlier, the HUD hous- ing program funds were fro- zen. That put an end to plans for low-cost, subsidized hous- ing for low-income families and elderly persons. Through continued efforts on the part of state FHA Director Nate Ruben, money has become available for the elderly housing project. It will amount to about per year in subsidies. But hopes for another 180 leased housing units for fami- lies, to supplement the 220 now in existence in Cedar Rap- ids, aren't too bright. An announcement was made last September ihat funding would be available for units nationwide. But the new regulations covering availabi- lity of the funds haven't been formulated yet, eight months later, so Cedar Rapids can't even apply for them. Canney doesn't believe that's accidental. "There have been 38 court cases involving impound- the mayor said, "and the federal government lost 34 of them." Rather than take a chance on impounding the funds and losing a court battle, lie be- lieves, the funds were official- ly released but are effec- tively "impounded" by delays hi writing the regulations. President Nixon has also impounded billion in Envir- onmental Protection Agency (EPA) funds during the last Ihri'e years. That's half amount authorized by congress in the clean water act of 1972 which passed over Nixon's veto. The funds are being slowly released now, but not all of them. Reimbursement grants from the impounded funds, for water pollution control proj- ects, are running about 20 months behind and are mak- ing up only about 50 percent of what was expected. And. of course, the urban renewal and neighborhood development program (NDPi projects have been ended. The replacement for urban renewal, NDP, open spaces, model cities and a host of other defunct programs is being created in congress now. It's commonly referred to as special revenue sharing. The name of the bill, which was passed by the senate and is now in a house committee, is the community develop- ment act. The act is supposed to re- place, with a "block" grant, the funds previously received through various categorical programs. The amount each city will receive is to be based o n the average received through the other programs between 1968 and 1972. Sounds you take a close look at the formula for finding the average. The key, at least in (he case of Cedar Kapids, is that Hie average is based on commitments made during that five-year period. e MOST large urban renewal projects across the country, including the two in Cedar Rapids, were committed prior lo 1968. No credit will be re- ceived under special revenue sharing for urban renewal funds. What does Ihat mean in dol- lars? The actual average yearly funds received by Cedar Rapids through those pro- grams between 1968 and 1972 was about million. Under the special revenue sharing formula, that will be replaced by about million. What it boils down to is that with special revenue sharing and the gift of regular reve- nue sharing, the city will be receiving quite a bit less than it did before the congress got generous. The budget couldn't stand too many gifts like that. (Next Sunday: How .the rev- enue sharing funds are being used, and how the city council makes the decisions about where to use them.) .f pr'the._Fjjnest. iJivRairits__ WEEK SPECIAL DOZEN CARNATIONS IN YOUR CHOICE OF CEMETERY VASE OR HOME VASE Hi g-n A 5 3501 FIRST AVE.
