A decision could be made at an open meeting either later that evening or at the regular council session March 22. It is imperative, says Mr. Nutting in a letter to council, that a course of action be decided upon before March 25. Tender offers being held by the city for installation of services to the west side cannot be held beyond that date. The bids1 received by the city were opened Feb. 23. Each of four firms submitted bids on alternate projects, one for com- plete services for Phase 1 de- velopment and the other for only partial services.

The high and low tempera- tees Monday should be 42 above and 27 above. The record temperatures for March 8 are H above, set in 1906, and 34 below, set in 1951.
