Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 1, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa - The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Fri.t November I, 1974    IsSUGc! On Directory Council, Airport Group Discuss Land Purchases The Cedar Rapids city council met with the airport commission Friday and discussed raising about $2.5 million to purchase additional land. The city now owns 1,720 acres at the airport site. Commission Chairman Don Gardner said the master plan for development includes purchase of about 1,140 more acres, to protect against becoming “landlocked” against future development. Gardner said Des Moines and Kansas City are examples of cities with airports that became surrounded and did not have room to expand when expansion was necessary. Commission member Robert Blythe said the land to be purchased includes 15 separate pieces of property ranging from 30 to 170 acres. Rough Estimate He Raid the $2.5 million figure is a rough estimate, based on a price of $2,000 per acre. He said the purchase is eligible for 75 percent federal funding. The 25 percent local share can be paid over a period of years by airport revenues, he said, and the 75 percent federal grant would be made between five and nine years after the land is purchased. “It’s more of an interim financing that we need, rather than a continuing load bn the taxpayer,” he said. The councilmen appeared convinced the purchase is necessary. and seemed just as sure general obligation bonds will ha.e to be issued to finance it. “Only Route” “The only route I can see is g o. bonds,” said Finance Commissioner Hal Schaefer. Blythe said bonding attorneys have said it is illegal to use air port revenue bonds to finance land acquisition. Mayor Don Canney said appraisals will have to be made and the forms and procedures outlined by federal law must be complied wiih before the airport commission can formally request the city council to sell the bonds. That process, and the attending publicity, should make the intention well known, he said. Can Meet “Then, if anyone has any questions, either an individual or a group, we can meet with them,” he said. A voter referendum is not required but can be forced if a petition is filed and signed by a number at least equal to two percent of those voting for gov ernor in the most recent election. That’s what happened in 1972, when a group called Taxpayers Asking for Explanations obtained about 1.600 signatures and forced a referendum on a $5 million bond issue. Voters turned the issue down. A $1.5 million issue was approved last year to resurface the runways, and only about half that amount was actually sold because the construction bids were much lower than anticipated. ♦ * * During a general briefing on the status of the airport, Gardner said it is “doing well financially”. . He said a new contract, calling for nearly a 50 percent increase in landing fees, has been negotiated with commercial carriers. . Blythe said the commission also intends to raise the rent on its farm land from $45 per acre to $100 per acre. Sales Operation The Cedar Rapids-Marion Area Chamber of Commerce issued a warning Friday in connection with a directory sales operation. Chamber officials said industries should beware of ad solicitations coming from Hie East Coast. They said the salesman asks industries to purchase or renew ads in an industrial directory. If they refuse, they still are sent a bill. The officials ask that attempted sales should be reported to the Chamber of Commerce. Hat Off: Officer Receives Day Off Building Materials Are Reported Stolen Harold Krause, Springville, has reported to the Linn sheriff’s office the theft of build ing materials valued at $580 from a construction site at rural Springville. The theft of shingles and plywood took place Wednesday afternoon or Wednesday night.

He proposed that voters elect Republican candidates in the November 5 election as the first step in his war against inflation. CONGRESSMAN H. R. GROSS recognizes Culver as an inflation creator. He said, “John Culver is one of the biggest spenders in Congress.” Iowans who study Culver’s record know he has a 10-year record of big spending and creating inflation.
