Police Are currently following up leads in these incidents Only adult identified was Roy Dunlap 18, 5860 Clough Pike who Hall said was offered a scholarship at Ohio state five mile first to qualify for Federal $ the five mile sewer is the first project of the metropolitan sewer District mob which has qualified for Federal funding. So says Richard Fahey superintendent of administration for mob. A we Hope we have More a he told the journal. Cost to local residents would have been More if the Federal Grant had not come through he said. Another first for mid is an informal hearing on the project. He has been with the department since it started in 1968 and it is the first such hearing has been held. One was talked about for the cough Creek project but the combination of the Christmas season and the bad january weather precluded it he said. Normally there a a months time Between the time the commissioners pass the Resolution of necessity and the formal Public hearing. Fahey said that a number of people want the Public hearing in their area but the state statute1 dictates that it be held in the county seat which Means the courthouse. The informal hearing will be at 7 30 p ,.,m. April 17 at the Anderson Middle school auditorium. The official hearing will be at 9 30 . May 3 at the Hamilton county courthouse. At least one county commissioner will attend the local hearing monday. The notices were sent out Middle of last week to the 500 or so homeowners who w ill be assessed.

Then 1-275 a reared its ugly head and half of the sewer plan had to be reworked. In 1973 Federal Grant Money was announced. Since then work towards construction has been progressing. He said such timing is Par for projects such As this one which he called a one of the bests done by mid. First word of the possibility of the informal hearing came prior to easter. Houses which do not presently have sewer service will be assessed $20 per front foot plus $100 base connection charge Fahey has explained. Typical assessment is estimated at $3000, using the average lot Width of 100 feet this amount is on top of the assessments for the trunk five mile sewer which the residents will have to pay. Cost of the local sewers is estimated at $3,4 million. A Federal Grant of $1.9 million is expect. The remaining $1.4 million will be raised by general obligation Bonds which will be repaid from the assessments. Fahey said. Financing formula is an Effort to equalize the Burden according to the mid administration superintendent. It is not completely equitable if merely front footage is used nor using just connection charges. University. Two 17-year-Olds and one boy 16, were also residents. All Are from Well to do township families Hall said. The four were charged with burglary March 24 at the Home of George Broderick 2896 Tengei re. Taken was a Safe containing a Coin collection Worth about $10,000 at face value. Some $8000 of the coins were recovered from a Coin shop near Owensville. At least one of the four Hall said was ringing door Bells to see if anyone was Home.

The string of robberies around the township unusually heavy was been going on since feb. 4 when a Home at 3020 Saddleback was robbed. Hall said most of the burglaries occurred in the Early evening. With information from the four High school students a search warrant was served april 5 on Kenneth e. Heller operator of Heller Coin shop. Pringle Corners about two Miles Northeast of and South of new tons v tile. Follow up investigation by the detectives of the sheriff s department investigative division at this Point the information and evidence indicates the burglaries to be the work five Niles and or Young adults. This was further substantiated1 with the fact that a number of House burglaries that took place during the easter period were closed last week with the apprehension of four subjects aces 16 to ii. Along with the recovery of some stolen property As Well As the information As to locations where the stolen items were being sold this latest incident also reflects another tact which surprises Many residents in Many cases when a crime of this Type is closed out the person or persons involved do not turn out to be transits or someone from another part of town but live in the township or area and in some cases live in the same sub division or even next door the Point to be made Here is Don t Rule out the possibility of persons responsible for criminal acts being from your immediate area. As you know the probability a of apprehension in the commission of a crime decreases As the time Between such commission and reporting thereof in. Creases. The patrol division of the Hamilton county sheriff s department needs the assistance of the citizen to Maximise the probability of apprehension. Those who Are civic association members have heard police officers address their groups and relate How they the citizen must get involved if they note activity that seems suspicious they should immediately Call the police dispatcher at 825 2280, giving the dispatcher All the a of proration they have the citizen should give their name and address so the responding patrol officer can talk to them personally it possible they should write the information Down the citizen should try to be sure on colors and physical description of subjects and most important try to get the License number if a vehicle is involved recently a citizen called when he noted what would appear As a major Utility service truck in the drive of his neighbors residence and the Driver at the Side of the House a very Good description of vehicle Ano Quot subject was Given along with the License number. By the officer Beni to stole to talk directly to this us corned citizen it simplified the officers a estimation As it turned out the Servic to it it was there on legitimate company Burness but it could have turned out otherwise. This is an example of great cooperation by the citizen. There have been other times when criminal damage has been observed by neighbors and they for reasons unknown did not a Call. This fact would then be established the following morning when a patrol unit was taking the report. In Many cases we have information furnished which is relate to a crime but we Are Able to determine that if is not relative to the Case but Are then criticized for what appears to be not following up on this information or not including it into a report. In these instances you May be sure the information is digested and much consideration has been Given prior to such exclusion As it would Only confuse the investigation it such non pertinent facts were put into a crime report a much could be done by police officers in the Way of Quot show or Quot just for effect Quot which would in Many cases appease the citizen we do not feel that such actions or Quot television Type productions Quot which May appease the citizen Are justification for the time involved time that could be spent on More productive efforts toward a solution to the crime the officer s workload also Many cases does not afford him the luxury of going into great detail with the citizen thus creating a void m understanding what can be done Why can t it be done or of what value it would be you May be sure that we in the sheriff s department and the patrol division Are just As concerned As the citizens Are and Are using every Aid we have to apprehend the persons involved in criminal activity and do the Best we can in preventive patrol to discourage this Type of criminal
