Obituaries old Village to hold annual meeting zoning and a special sewer project will be major items considered by residents of old Bennington at the villages annual meeting tonight at 8 at the old Bennington schoolhouse. Zoning will figure to at least three of the nine articles on the warning. There is first the matter of the 1963 tax rate. Trustees Are expected to recommend a total rate of $3.17. Of this 95 cents is the town Highway tax and 20 cents is to cover $1,000 voted at a special meeting earlier this year for professional assistance and other expenses in the preparation of a new zoning ordinance. The remainder of $2.02 is the villages general fund rate and represents an increase of 4 cents Over last year s tax. Article 5 proposes that the zoning Board of adjustment be consolidated with the Village planning commission with the combined body to consist of five members. Presiding officer Hamilton l. Shields said this morning however that this article probably will be tabled until after consideration of article 8, which asks if the Village will repeal its present ordinance and authorize its legislative body to adopt a new ordinance to be submitted to voters for approval.

Australia is the heaviest Export buyer of Oregon lumber the latter article said Shields was inserted on the recommendation of Village counsel atty. George h. Plumb. Shields said plumb will explain his recommendation. If the present ordinance is repealed presumably this would invalidate the zoning Board of adjustment referred to in articles. Under article 4 trustees Are expected to seek authorization to borrow up to $6,000 to replace about 1,000 feet of sanitary sewer line in the area North of West Road and West of Monument Avenue. The sections to be replaced Are believed to be taking in considerable quantities of surface water. Town selectmen have set the proviso that Tho surface water be curtailed from the sanitary system before tie town will take Over Upkeep of the Village system.
