All Linn county communities had been urged Monday night to consider such a census. Senior Planner Riley Simpson told members of the regional plan commission the census would result in more money from the liquor and road use funds to communities which have grown since Simpson said the cost of the census would range from about per capita in smaller towns to 50 cents in larger ones. He said the benefits over five years could amount to between and per capita, howev- er. If the census shows a popula- tion decline, he added, it need not be certified so communities would not be chancing a reduc- tion in funding. Simpson said a decision should be made soon, because about six months are needed to set up the census and planners would prefer it taken late next spring, to provide information midway between the 1970 and 1980 counts.

If Failure If the bond issue said board member Ed Bcatty, "we could have worrth of Irawings we may never use." If the bond measure is defeat- ed, Ramstad said, the board could tell the architects to stop mmediatcly and pay them for he work performed. The board also looked over ireliminary renovation plans or Wilson and Franklin. At Franklin, a square 'oot addition will be built at the jack of the building for seating or the gym.
