It a the United nations general Assembly wound up the first week of its resumed session today apparently As far As Ever from agreement on whether to lop cold War items off its docket. The smaller nations still looked for the soviet Union and the United states to reach some Accord on weeding out controversial issues but they could derive Little encouragement from East West exchanges so far. Main sticking Point appeared to be soviet insistence on a full airing of the arms question highlighting soviet Premier Khrushchev Scall for total disarmament. The United states reportedly wants discussion of disarmament issues but will defer full debate until next fall and spend the interim in quiet negotiations. Some diplomats were hopeful the says sewers would Cost Morel Bond question fails editors note the following article is one in a series dealing with the Dixon sewer Bond referendum to he held March 21. The author of this article la a representative of the financial consulting firm employed by the City. By Noman Johnson of Paul d. Speer municipal finance consultant an article in this newspaper Friday dealt with the financial details of the proposed $1,350,000 general obligation tax Bond Issue to be voted on March 21. Several questions have risen concerning the consequences if this Bond Issue is not approved. Similar purpose general obligation tax Bond. The difference could be As much As one half of one per cent. The principal and interest of these Revenue Bonds Are paid from a sewer Servile charge computed As a per cent of the water Bill instead of from taxes. The higher risk and greater number of delinquencies involved in collection of sewer service charges As opposed to collection of taxes accounts for the difference in interest rates Between the two types of Bonds Hor similar reasons it is also desirable that the revenues provide a safety Factor margin Over and above the principal and interest requirements and such Factor May run As much As one and one half times. Revenue Bond financing is a thoroughly accepted method to pay for Many municipal Lucerne producing the state sanitary water Board has repeatedly criticized the City for pollution of the Rock River. It has also refused to allow new connections to the sanitary sewerage system because the present sewage treatment Plant is operating beyond its capacity. Additional sewage collections would Only increase the problem. Should the Board order the City to improve its facilities or pay a penalty the City might have to turn to a Revenue Bond Issue to finance these improvements. Due to the nature of a Revenue Bond the total financing would necessarily be in a greater amount and could run As High As $1,500,000 to provide for additional costs such As interest during construction. Investor acceptance of sewage Revenue Bonds is such that the interest rate would be greater than for a improvements. However there is no present Hewer service charge and it is Felt that if such a charge were instituted the Burden principal interest and safety Factor margin would be greater than if these proposed improvements were financed through general obligation Bonds. Based upon the 1959 assessed valuation for the City of Dixon of $57,-073,590, the general obligation tax Bond debt incurring Power of the City is $2,853,000. There Are no general obligation Bonds outstanding at this time. Since there is ample margin to finance other desired municipal projects at a later Date through general obligation tax Bonds the City can utilize the tax Bond method of financing these proposed improvements in order to keep the Burden As Low As possible. Immediate approval of this program and the method of financing will effect additional savings beside interest Cost. By approving this program now the City has the time and Means of being selective in choosing construction contracts and financial terms. If the City is compelled by the state to improve its sanitary facilities the City might not be in a position to seek the most favourable construction and financing terms. Talks just concluded in Siberia Between Khrushchev and to. S. Ambassador Uewel Lyn e. Thompson might have a fruitful bearing on the Congo and other issues facing tile Assembly. These delegates believe Khrushchev a reaction to the message Thompson brought from president Kennedy might decide whether the soviets will press their demands for liquidation of the to. N. Congo command and their slashing attacks on Secretary general dug Hammarskjold. Diplomats speculated that the Thompson Khrushchev talks May also help determine whether the two Powers can agree on dropping cold War items from the Agenda. African delegates a number of african delegates have been pressing for immediate Assembly debate on the Congo crisis but with the Security Council scheduled to continue discussion next tuesday on Iacini violence in see i a.
