Developers now Are required to put in All water and sewer lines plus needed streets. City figures from Williamson also show growth in the sheer volume of water taps. In 1970, the City had 43,683 meters in service with 285 new ones put in that year. That figure jumped five years later to 1,213 water taps with 47,-462 meters in service. To Date in the first six months of 1976, the City has added 763 new meters making a total so far of 48,127 water meters. That does no to Tell the entire Story Williamson explained because some apartments have one water meter for Many residents. Others use individual meters. The incinerator and trash Container conversion now underway will be completed Early next year reducing pollution by eliminating burning of garbage and reducing costs in the containerized operation by a one Man one truck operation be said. A if alleys Are provided All newly developing areas Are receiving new Container service for trash a he said. One of what Williamson Calls Quot a major and important development will be the opening of the Ross Mirror connection set for july. The estimated total Cost of the giant Span is $3. Million and a will open up the whole Northeast area for Industry a he said. Not to be overlooked in a growing Amarillo is the new Central Library downtown almost ready for use. The estimated Cost on that is $12 million with a half million scheduled for the parking lot land acquisition and landscaping. With people and housing comes the necessary commercial and Industrial development or the other Way around. A the most exciting thing is that Amarillo is opening up All Over and on All sides a Williamson said. Amenities As an sex car garage and carpeting. This generally agreed avenge computed from diverse loan committee sources Here illustrates Mitcham s Contention that a $50.-000 House is a a Well equipped House but no longer anything substantial houses in less prestigious neighbourhoods of course can be had in the $10.-000 Range and there seems to be no limit on Home site costs for families who consider Money no object. An Illust Tion of loan eligibility from Panhandle savings amp loan president Wilton White follows these Steps Quot first we figure a ratio of no greater than 25 per cent Gross House note including taxes and insurance to the Gross monthly income dividing the big into the Little. A then we take the Gross House note and figure what debts a family has that will not pay out in seven months. That ratio should not exceed 35. Quot we use these two guidelines to see whether a family would be crowding itself with a Home mortgage. Then we ask whether the family has children. This Factor figures heavily. A it is becoming More and More difficult to qualify and what it All boils Down to is in just the past few years the turnkey Price of a new House including land and contractor costs in addition to liveable space has shot from $18 to $23 a Square foot White said. Government subsidy housing designed to give lower income families an Edge on Home ownership is virtually extinct on the Amarillo Market real estate marketers and mortgage lenders said a right now there is no special subsidy rate going a White said. And said Imperial savings association president Tommy Lane a there Are no special advantages for Low income groups in housing construction traditionally the nations Leader out of recession has slowed nationwide. The counter trend of housing activity in Amarillo practitioners of the business say collectively seems a direct result of such heavy Industry development As Iowa beef proc Ereon and Sarco inc., and Viveir effects of bringing in new residents and prompting the development of new Small business. A the Cost of a new House requires More and More of the wage earners Dollar a says Lane. Quot our new housing has not got so High As elsewhere in the country a an average new Home in Dallas costs $50,000, reports the Bureau of business research a a but its coming to us.
