Municipal offices include a main city office room 30 by 22 feet, a 16 by 20 feet office, vault and storage facilities.

In other Monday night, Malakoff's council had scheduled a second and final public hearing on a new $100,000 HUD grant it is seeking for continued work on drainage problems in the West End No one showed up for the hearing, and the council signed the proper documents for making the application. Pat Burks of Thomas Barber & Associates briefed the council on the status of It's a good idea to label all the circuits in a fuse box.

Burks also told the council that a $3,500 701 planning grant was inadequate to do complete planning for the city, and that he felt the city should spend an additional $2,000 or more to get complete data on city plan- COUNCIL :i:ii*ii;:::::::::::::: from page one ning because the information would be necessary for future grants from the federal government. The city had applied for a grant for a $15,000 study, but was given authorization for only $4,500, of which the city would have to pay $1,500. The city originally budgeted $5,000 of its own funds for the planning program. The study calls for a land use inventory of existing buildings and housing, a housing survey to identify housing needs and an environmental assessment of any proposed work under the terms of federal grants. Burks said the city should also obtain an ownership map of the city with a land-use overlay on that. he recommended that the city obtain an updated aerial map of the city and drew up an assessment of the goals and objectives for the city. Adding these things would set the city up to apply for more federal money, Burks said. During his mayor's report, Thompson reported on at- tendance at a recent public forum conducted by the Texas Water Development Board held at Tyler. tle said, after attending the hearing, he was convinced Malakoff and surrounding towns should, in the future, con- sider forming a separate taxing agency to provide a water treatment plant for the arem as the falling water tables would make "wells an obselete source of water in the next few years." He also told the council he was scheduling on the agenda for the next meeting acquisition of land for the city's proposed sewer treat- lent plant, and indicated he wanted the council to make a decision at that time. The city has been negoti- ating with Jerry Garrison for a site near the present plant off Highway 31 West, but no agreement has been reached. The city has also been unable thus far to get clearance from the railroad to cross the track without building a $40,000 crossing signal. Both matters are to be on the agenda of the first meeting in November, he said. Thompson also said that Sheesley-Winters is moving slowly on the sewer con- struction project, and that it would not be likely the job would be completed until some time in January or February. He said that would throw the firm beyond the time limits of its contract with the city. Thompson said he in- structed the city manager, John Lott, to enforce the city's contract with Sheesley-Winters, which calls for penalties for days beyond the terms of the contract.
