Homer Ormsby has worked of a Complete and modern Sewe following the unsuccessful join the county sanitation District in 1938, the Council immediately began to plan for acquiring suitable prop erty for a City owned sewerage it that while the first attempt a form of sewer system would e Nadia. Mayor a Perkins working through former mayor a n. Multer arranged for the City to acquire land in the san Cabrie River Bottoms and this along with a strip leading from the City limits to ii was incorporated into the City. At the same time work was begun in the office of City Engineer Glen Watson on the drafting of plans for a City wide system. It might be revealed Here that Koebig and Hoe big City sewer engineers on the final drafting of plans stated that this work done Well in Advance by the local Engineer office saved the City Many thousands of dollars at Ven Little Cost. Early in 11 15, mayor Ormsby called a meeting of representatives of All civic and sen ice organizations of the City to work with the Council in developing a sewer plan. Albert Perkins was elected chairman of this committee. The committee went right to work and on May 8, 1945, the City went to the polls and voted at a ratio of eight to one to Bond itself for $750,000 for a City sewer system. Shortly after its creation this committee had received a request from a. N. Pawn county sanitation District Engineer for the privilege of presenting a new and drastically different program for joining the sanitation District through creation of a separate sanitation District for this Section of the foothill area. Strongly opposed to joining the county plan at the beginning the group gradually came to realize that under the new plan Arcadia was in a position to save Many thousands of dollars in actual construction costs As Well As operation costs and general nuisance Relief and so stated. Consequently Early in 1946, the committee voted to recommend to the Council that we join the county sanitation District and submit a Bond Issue for construction of a joint sewer system to the voters. Late in May this election was held and passed by a huge majority of Twenty three to one. A week later a Bond Issue of $350,000 to pay for the Mains and our part of the Over All county project was passed by the still greater majority of ninety three to one. Since that time it has been a race Between the craftsmen striving to Complete the1 highly technical plans for constructing the sewer and the contractors efforts to secure pipe. Both projects were completed on time and the work commenced As per contract Early this month and actual digging this week. Both the citizens committee which held regular sessions for nearly a year and one half and the Council which worked hard on the project off and on for nearly ten years As Well As the Home folks who backed them up All deserve much credit for helping to bring to Arcadia the one absolute essential heretofore lacking to make this a completely modern City.
