Bureau Motorists who drove on the nearly 25 miles of Tiptons city streets actually helped the street department remove According to Gary street this is the third year the department has used a new snowremoval technique which he said worked just snow was pushed to the side of the If there was a lot of some of the excess was scooped up and hauled Harpe We get as much snow off the road as we Then we salt it and shove it to the middle and let the cars work the snow into a That Harpe theres less to And if they do have to scoop up the its easier to move a little but Once the snow gets most of it drains down the storm he And the citys street workers doiVt have to scoop and remove he Harpe esti mates might save the city a little but hes sure because he hasnt really consid ered the cost He said trying to save money wasnt the motivating reason to switch snowremoval The main reason for switching to the new Harpe was to get the snow off of the streets The street commissioner said noticed it was taking quite a while for snow to be cleared off of the Then Harpe read about the alternative method of snow removal in a Better Roads and The snowremoval technique is new for this but its been used in other states for Harpe He said he thought the city could at least try the pushitto themiddle technique to possibly speed things As for Harpe the new technique shouldnt nega tively affect In he it

Street He noted that Kokomo has 190 miles of city streets to Guge said with small accumula pushing snow to the middle might be but a large snowfall might cause He said after a large think of how much snow is along the sides of the roads and then picture that in middle of the Harpe said the technique can only be used with small accumu He said when theres a heayy the road crew has no choice but to push it to the side and remove Harpe is also quick to note just because Tipton will push snow to middle of the road doesnt mean there will be snow piles sev eral feet high along the He said no more than a couple of inches would ever be in the middle of the By CATHARINE FERNANDO and TERRI HUGHESLAZZELL Tribune staff writers The 1994 General Assembly should be short and be over with long before

has predicted a 25 But while in beginning there will be some issues that must be taken care All agree that funding for the Indiana Department of Environ mental Management will likely top the agenda as will the recur ring issue of how schools should be Discussions on the environmen tal agency will center on general money supplementing fee but probably with money already No one expects the budget to be reopened for discussion on addi tional expenditures or appropria in an effort to allevi ate the problems that have plagued the environmental agency and to prevent giving con trol back to the federal govern discussion will focus on a fee structure for air and water inspections for industry and gov as well as additional state Howard said people hes talked to dont want to lose control of the so hes willing to find a way to fund the Another major concern are health care and Medicaid cuts being made by Bayhs administra Although the legislators expect the state to wait for a federal health care they believe they have to be prepared for the out come of Clintons Bayh has control of how Medic aid reimbursements are but legislators want the concerns of their constituents to be made through Howard has already written a letter to the Democrat governor asking him not to make across theboard but to study indi vidual Johnson is taking things a step further and plans to ask for a com made up of members of the Senate Planning and Social Services Committee he and the House Public Health Commit tee to study reimbursements and how costs are This will better inform both members of the Third

Legislature and the administra tion about what the reimburse ments He doesnt expect any opposi tion to the plan Because the only money involved will be the cost for the Such an advisory he would include representatives from insurance compa nies and as well as other health care We need to find what all the components of service are and what the true value Johnson Educational funding may also be a hot topic this year because Pat chairman of the House Ways and Means called for bonding approval for university projects even though both parties have stated they dont want any supplemental budget in the 1994 legislative Bayliff believes Bauer could secure sufficient Democrat votes in the House to get that but I dont expect the Senate to go I cant imagine the House Democrats holding out for university bonding as an issue Another issue that will be ed are the various forms of anti crime But other than that I dont think thats going to change the way the earth is carrying a bill that would prohibit smoking on the grounds of kindergarten through 12thgrade I was asked to do this from people Howard Bill expects the return of an ethanol bill that could increase the use of corn to
