Oshkosh Daily Northwestern (Newspaper) - June 14, 1967, Oshkosh, Wisconsin Consider New Church Purchase Offer Meissner 'Accepts' League Opinion BERLIN The resignation two attorneys had not etc., before the building is razed of Melvin Wercb, from the of Robert LaBuda to the present post of the planning commission and two public bearings on mat- ters of interest to citizens were among the items concerning the Berlin City Council Tuesday evening. Mayor Emil Meissner opened the session with a brief state- ment for the'record. He believes the opinion of the Wisconsin League of Municipalities is valid and acknowledges that Atty. Milton Spoehr is still city at- torney. Meissner said he couldn't see Spoehr's reasons for wanting the post in the face of what Meissner believed to be strong public opinion opposed to it. The mayor's appointment of received council approval and his subsequent appointment of Ally. .Robert Gonyo as "acting attorney" was not valid, accord- ing to a statement made in writing by the Wisconsin League of Municipalities. The mayor's phrase to Attorney Spoehr was "I accept you under protest." Possible Purchase The business of possible pur- chase church again brought to council atten- tion by Ray Keck, president of the Methodist board of trustees. The new offer of the congrega- tion is to sell the property for cash, with the provision that the original owners will be allowed to remove some specified items such as plywood panels, doors, light fixtures, within one year of the consum- mation of the sale. The matter was referred to the finance com- mittee study. Upon recommendation of the police and fire committee, the council voted to again hire the meter maid, Brenda Joy Holmes, at per hour; to hire a substitute part-time man for the police department at the of the old Methodist pay rate of the present night on Park Avenue was radio operator; to raise the pay of the present night radio man from to per month; and to write off the books as uncollectable in bike fees which auditors could not account for and deemed uncollectable. At this point Chief of Police Germain Beck called to council attention a lengthy document, he had previously given to mayor Emil Meissner, detailing the reasons for this situation and that he belived these fees were paid, New Method Aldermen were assured by Aid. Richard Doro that bike licenses were now handled by one policeman only and records were kept in triplicate of each sale a change made when the former method resulted in the discrepancy discovered by the state auditors. Aid. Robert La Buda made the motion to "forget the past, write off the amount, and keep on file the information furnished by Chief Beck." Alderman approved by voice vote. An amendment to the existing recodified city ordinances regarding licenses for public entertainment was passed by the AREA BADGER STATERS INTERVIEWED Each day during Badger Boys State at Ripon some of the delegates are interviewed for radio broadcasts. Tuesday night boys from this area who were included were, from the left, Patrick Wyer, Ripon; Tom Nevers and David Steinart, both of Oshkosh; Jon Downs, Markesan, and Gary Sadoff and James Zweigler, both of Fond du Lac. The councelor (in dark cap) is Bob Ivers, Milwaukee. Ripon Bureau photo council in such a way as to allow a continuation of the previous practice of having the Jaycees pay a flat fee for a festival of several days duration. As the newly recodified ordinance now stands they would have to pay each day and there is prospect that no profits would result to the sponsors. The new ordinance will cover all civic, patriotic, educational, religious and charitable affairs. At this point a Jaycee member, Aid. Emil Pionke, stated that the group did not plan a big fall festival this year, but did hope to have a fall jamboree in which a carnival would be a part of the attraction. The new ordinance will enable them to show a profit for their civic betterment projects. Adopt Resolution After a public hearing, the council adopted the final resolution for curb and gutter on Mound Street, between existing installations and Van Horn Street. Another public hearing on a possible increase in fees for trailers in the city brought forth information from the city treasurer, Eugene Lehman, that, to his figures, this in- crease was not needed. Previous information from the school district had indicated that the present S10 fee was not adequate to cover school service costs j Winnebagoland Area Manawa Plans Youths Are Elected RIPON Campaigning and voting are climaxes of schools in various segments of gov- ernment, and theories learned are being put info practice at Badger Boys State on the Ripon College campus.

Berlin's ID History Explained to Kiwanis BERLIN "We have done it before, let's do it again." said Postmaster Frank Alberts, as he presented the history of Berlin IndusUral Development Corporation to Kiwanis mem- bers Monday. Alberts, president of the cor- poration since its formation, ex- plained the beginning of the organization and its purpose of helping to bring industries to Berlin as well as helping Berlin industries expand He also out- lined the current opportunity for investors to finance a major ex- pansion of Realist Inc "Since the beginning of BIDC in 1952." Alberts said, "through the efforts of loaners more than 500 job opportunities have been provided in the city of Berlin." "Judge for yourself, what the picture of our city would be if we were short these 500 jobs and that amount of growth in lax base and economy. Survey Conducted "In 1945. a seurvey was con- ducted by the Berlin Chamber of Commerce relative to what the people of Berlin thought was missing in the city. Answers to 25 questions asked through a wide mailing to people within the city and die surrounding areas indicated the number one need was job opportunity. Sec- ond was recreational facilities. "The chamber set about attempting to do something about it." explained Alberts. "Chamber members began tc be individual salesmen seeking possible industrial growth. "It was this type of sales- manship that was first presented at a golf course in Green Lake which interested a certain va- cationer there. He in torn in- vestigated Berlin. The result was the moving of Sands Mills from Chicago to Berlin. This was the beginning of industrial he said. Alberts then listed other ac- complishments of the cor- poration." The David White Instrument Company of Mil- waukee heard of Berlin and we now know them as Realist Inc. Wilson Hurd also listened to the story of Berlin's Industrial De- velopment Corporation and they, loo, are now one of our "going" industries. Universal Leather Company recognized the Berlin opportunity for expansion and the Industrial Development Cor- poration provided them with funds for additional manu- facturing space. New Industries "Other new industries such as one of our biggest ventures to date. We are asking people and organizations to loan money to the Berlin Industrial Corporation for the purpose of building a large addition to Realist. Inc. This will mean 100 new jobs, but S350.0W is needed. Interest wall be paid at the rate of 6 per cent on these first mortage certificates." He said both the Farmers and Merchants and the First National Banks are ac- cepting orders for first moitages and notes He said economists say that 300 additional jobs in a com- munity is worth more than and a S13.25 fee was suggested. The school also objected because only trailers in trailer camps were assessed and others throughout the city did not pay. The aldermen voted unanimously to retain the fee. The matter was noted as a topic for discussion before the next city budget hearings. A preliminary resolution was approved by a 6 to 4 vote to install sewer and watermains on Jefferson street between Seward and La Fayette streets, Aid. Doro, Fitpatrick, La Buda and Prellwitz voted against measure. New Petition A new petition combining former petitions for sewer service on Kennedy Drive, Sacramento and East Cumberland Streets, with signers showing 52.85 per cent of the property owners in favor of it was accepted. Also carried by roll call vote was the preliminary resolution to do the work. Aldermen also voted to sign a contract with American Pipe Service company for television inspection of the sewer and water lines on Berlin's main street in anticipation of the paving project to be done next year. This involves Huron Street from State Street to the bridge and Broadway from the bridge to Washington Street. This portion is also part of state Highway 49. A probable total of was named by city engineer Greg Lockhart, since the television in- spection cost of per hour would be added to some travel, picture and report printing costs. Aid. Doro suggested that the sewer and water commission be consulted, so that it would be in accord with any adjacent streets that might be included in the inspection. Consultation Re-slated Consultation with representa- tives of the State Highway Com- mission at Wisconsin Rapids, originally slated for June 20 was to be rescheduled, preferably next week, Lockhart noted. This was at the request of highway officials in preparation for the major rejuvenation of Berlin's Main Street. Lockhart also reported for the building inspector that 17 build- ing permits had been issued during the month of May at a valuation of The next meeting will coincide with the visit of the state super- visor of assessmente at p.m. June 20. Re-assessment of the city will be discussed. At that time council members will also take up the unfinished busi- ness of determining the ques- tions of parking fees, two-hour parking or free parking in the new city tot now ready for sur- facing on Franklin Street. Mean- while the board of public works will have the matter under study, since it will also concern Deep appreciation is expressed by the famflv of the late Ger- hard Wink of Wankau to friends for many deeds and ex- pressions of sympathy, to tbc Rev.
