Brown Co.. Des Moines, appeared before the council claiming his company did not receive a fair deal when the bids were submitted to the street committee because a front dump sweeper was not specified. He said his company could provide that type of sweeper for $20,870. However, the Wayne Sweeploador offered by the Brown firm did not include hydrostatic drive and steering. The Elgin Pelican offered by the Elliott company did. Guard Reorganization Worfh Mon*y Possible in J 975: May DES MOINES (IDPA) -Adjutant General Joseph G, May reports some Iowa army national guard units may lie reorganized during 1975 to achieve greater effectiveness in overall guard operations. Gen May said. however, the plans are “still in the drawing hoard stage” and it is unlikely the mission of any iowa unit will be changed for at least ten months. He said no final decision has l>een made regarding reorganization and any plan would have to Im submitted to the department of defense for approval. The two-star general said “it is unfortunate several rumors have been circulated concerning the reorganization, but the simple facts are we don't have any definite plan at this time.” Xtinouncrmrnl May ''aid a formal announcement of the proposed reorganization will Im* made as soon as possible, jierhaps by early spring. The proposed reorganization. he said, will involve changing the assigned mission of some units, but there are presently no plans to eliminate any units currently active in Iowa. May said the officials working on the reorganization realize changing the mission of some units could present an additional hardship for some guardsmen who would have to change their military specialty fields, however, every attempt will he made to minimize these hardships “We realize some of the members of the affected units will be forced to change their military occupational areas because of the reassignment of the mission for their units,’’ May said, “but we hope to minimize the hardships.’’ I nder 2a Percent The general said preliminary indications are less than 25 percent of Hie army guard units will Ik* affected by the reorganization. He said no reorganization is planned for units of the air guard May added, “I would like to caution those persons interested in the guard — guardsmen, legislators, civic leaders and others — from making any decisions based on some of the rumors that have beenclrcu-lated regarding the reorganization. “We certainly would not consider this reorganization if we thought it would impair the ability of the Iowa guard to meet both the state and federal missions. Like in a business. we believe the reorganization is essential to providing a stronger guard for the people of iowa and will he more in line with department of defense requirements. ” The street committee recommended purchase of the Elgin Pelican as it believed it was worth the money for hydrostatic drive and in the long run would be more economical. Bill Strong, city clerk, reported the parking meter fund contained $26.(NHI and the money could In* usc»d to pay for the street sweeper, provided the council felt enough off street parking was provided for the business district. A letter to the council from the Vinton Chamber of Commerce said it was the unanimous vote of its board that additional off-street parking be provded within one-and-a-half blocks of the intersection of Fourth street and First avenue. Checking Locations The council discussed checking available locations for a new municipal parking lot. However, several council members said the existingmunicipal parking lot is rarely filled to capacity and until it is, no more olf-street parking is needed. The council voted to use parking meter funds to pay for the new street sweeper, with .lane LaGrange and Doris Wood voting no. Jan 23 was set as the date for a public hearing to rezone from K-2 to M-l an area in the northwest quadrant as recommended by the planning and zoning committee. A resolution was passed which will tx* sent to Iowa congressmen supporting the re-enactment of revenue sharing with increased appropriations to state and local governments. The council voted unanimously to go into executive session to discuss wages of city employes.
