Although the area now contains only some 22 platted tots, Harris indicated he and other landowners held con- sideragle acreage adjacent to the subdivision which is sub- ject to future development.

Thompson said adequate funds to meet the cost of the service to the area if it were incorporated into the city are i ANNEX from page one Had the city approved the annexation and the addition of the water and sewer line, it would have been the only branch line approved by the council off the main water line. Hayter said that the city could issue certificates of obligation, (short term notesL to finance the additional water and sewer improve- monte.

He said he feared a settling problem would come about because the line was dug several feet from the edge of his proposed foundation. He also accused the city of "trespassing" on his property. "The problem is, we weren't contacted, and the ditch is exactly on the line where we planned to put the founda- tion. We already had bids," Cantrell said. "You have infringed on our rights. I was to be in the building Feb. 10. I have lost a month's revenue from the property, suffered mental anguish and distress and I have got to junk a masonry type building and start over." Mayor Thompson told Cantrell that the city had a "verbal easement" from Dr. P.T. Kilman to go across the property. He also said the ditch was several feet from the proposed foundation. He also said the city would fill the ditch "with concrete if necessary" once Cantrell did the site work necessary for laying the foundation. The problem arose because the property changed hands between the time Kilman gave a verbal okay for the ease- ment and the time the work was actually performed, ac- cording to Thompson. Clifford R.

A new truck meeting the city's needs of 750-gallons-per-minute ca- pacity and containing all necessary auxiliary equip- ment would cost about $33,000, according to Dickson and the salesman, Alfred Neal of Waco. The delivery time is 9 to 10 months, Neal said. Thompson said the matter would be placed on the council agenda within the next month. City manager John Lott disclosed that Mrs. Tracey Franks had resigned as a clerk. Mayor Thompson sug- gested that he investigate hiring a person who could handle some of the accounting now handled by Eleanor Robertson, and told Lott to study the matter and see what could be done and report back to the council. Thompson read a letter from Tarrant Oil Co. an- nouncing its intent to sell existing gasoline tanks and pumps installed on customer sited to the customer at his cost. He offered to sell the tank and pump facility re- cently installed by Drake Oil Co. at no cost to the city for $600. Thomspon suggested that the city not buy the pump and put the city's gasoline needs up for bids. The council voted unan- imously to advertise for bids on gasoline. Ed Sonnenberg, inspector hired recently to supervise the city's water and sewer im- provement project, was intro- duced to the council• The city also raised the salary of city secretary Tina Speake from $495 monthly to $550.
