Voters will decide on the proposed bond issue Tuesday, in the same city election in which two new members of the city commission will be elected. The bond issue, if approved, will provide funds for full secondary treatment facilities necessary to meet ne<‘ds predicted for the city al least through 1969, George ,Minter, immediate past mayor, said "1 feel sure the commission and mayor have given detailed thought and study and have had fine engineering advice and research from at least two well-known engineering firms. It is the unified opinion of the commission and engineers that this is what Abilene neeils. "This is the type treatment facilities that other cities the size of Abilene are going to and in ly opinion it is the kind of plant Abilene needs and must hdve.” Jesse F iT-Bone' Winters, who preceded Minter as mayor, agreed that the passage of the bond issue is important to the future of the city. "It looks to me like they have us in a corner," Winters said "There is nothing else we can do to give us the type treatment we must have, and we must do something to provide adequate treatment." Huci.son Smart saiil "I think this is the best way to solve the problem If $1.775,000 i.s the amount needed to put in an adequate plant, we certainly .should do it " Ro-scoe Blanken.ship also is ml Kriiesl G r i.s s o m. who st‘rved favor of passage of the bond is.sue.i immediately befwe Winters, is| "Personally, I feel the oi>l> living ^ Arizona and C E.. thing for us lo do IS vote the bonds'    *u    .    •    /    *    t.    > «nd build an aduqu.Tte plnnt. ,„'‘-atlin, the c.t> k first mayor after; planning the projwl, we :4iou!d The city manager form of govern-; make sure that everything is done ment was installe<i was out of Motorists who literally waited; until the last minute to buy their; 1962 auto licenses found them-i ‘.selves tag-les.s Satui*day evening ;when the tag selling offices closed ; early because of "employe fatigue.” The county tax asses.sor-collec-tor’s office, sc'heduled to remain! open until 4:30 p.m., closed its doors about 4 p.m. The estimated 200 persons .still in line at Ithat time were taken care of, but ¡those who arrived later did not. ¡It is customary here to .shut the i doors early to allow the clerks to get caught up by quitting time. But at the three supermarket substations in town, scheduled to be ooen unil 6 pm., sales werej stopptd about 4; 30 p.m. also, re-i portedly because of thé heavy work load the employes had during the day. Persons attempting to buy tags', after that were told that the county tax office would be open at 8, a m, Mondav. However, on Mon-: day it will be illegal to drive an auto w ith 1961 license plates on it.
