Several i possible locations were considered and in the last analysis a build Ling located at is West com Sueree Street giving both ground floor and upstairs facilities and belonging to the to a. In corporation was selected. The Hest location eliminated from consideration was an upstairs location with trying floor Levels approximate 1y one half the floor space bad j Cut up and at a rental of Hio per month. Iii View of the fact i that councilman Amos it Kearns i a director of the g. A corporation the question of the Legal right of the City of High Point to j idea with that corporation was raised first by councilman Kearns himself. The charter of the Cit f High Point provides in article Xiii. Section i.

Sadoglio is shown in this picture As he commanded italian troops in Ethiopia. Holder or director of a corporation doing work for or having business with tile City hut in such mallets he shall not Vole or otherwise influence or attempt to influence other members of the governing lease proper a thus it was legally proper for the City to lease tire building referred to As belonging to a corporation in which a member it the City Council has a financial interest. The lease provides tor five thousand three Hundred and eighty eight Square feet of flour space at a rental of one Hundred Ami in pouty five dollars per month. It was understood that the City would take the building As it stands and make certain alterations to snit its purposes it being recognised that no available building would provide suitable Large capacity or heavy duty electric wiring plumbing for Laboratory purposes or logical arrangement of rooms for health department uses it was Aho recognized that approximately $90o would he required to provide Laboratory equipment it Cetera at such time As the health department Laboratory discontinues using equip me it which belongs to the City water department. The City officials overlooked the possibility that this figure could mount up to a sum higher than the Council would in willing to authorize. The very thing has happened and the City officials particularly the Mavor recognize thai in leasing a building before Lite estimates were made rather than afterwards that the approach has been a Businesslike and that we Are subject to it it Ilcisin. A the Council in its last regular meet tug received preliminary estimates totalling approximately six thousand dollars. This figure sounded High and the Council delayed action until a full meeting of the Council could be held on the premises under discussion. Liis meeting was held on monday of this week and among those expressing an unwillingness to spend six thousand dollars for this purpose at this time was or. Kearns who. Before the publication of yesterdays Story in the Enterprise stated that the directors of the g. A c. Corporation would cancel the lease without Cost to the Cly if that is the desire of the City Council. The Council has not requested such Adion. The full handling of the details of this matter was referred to the proper committee for further study. Tit i Miki Klim phun a preliminary work on this study indicates that a reduction of nearly $ i Sho can be made under the preliminary estimates submitted to the Council but it is important to note in View of criticism voiced in yesterday s news article that the total involved in renovation of the building leased was Only $1679, a portion of which the u. A. Corporation had agreed to assume the other items not yet accepted or authorized largely Over necessary expenses in connection with consolidation of the health department facilities now or at any time in the future in this or any other building. A this statement is made for clarification Only. The committee in charge of Titis matter has not yet held its meeting and i. Of course cannot speak for that committee Kint shall lie glad to make Public a detailed statement As soon As the City Council ads on its re to is a councilman Kearns has been spot lighted in this mutter.
