Lake, 299-3585 Council seeks ad opinions A novel method for raising park revenues was the highlighted item on a city council agenda last Tuesday which was otherwise brief and routine. Following rapid progress through the consent agenda and a brief report from the city administrator, the council heard a suggestion from member Jim Roloff concerning the use of advertising readerboards at Reinking Field. Roloff and member Marion King commented on the idea which was discussed at a recent Parks and Re- creation committee meeting on May 27. Though no action was taken at the meeting, Roloff requested the city fathers to seek input from the com- munity on their feelings concerning the sale of advertising for display at the softball field. Discussion of the details of such a plan ensued, with the council agreeing that standards for attractive design and content would be established to insure an eye-appealing display. King, who recently returned from a vacation in Georgia, said the use of readerboards was common in other parts of the country and appeared to be successful. The council agreed to consider the idea, and directed the Parks and Recreation committee to further ex- plore the details of such a venture as to rates and display. Roloff said the committee had sug- gested revenues raised from reader: boards be dedicated for needed park improvements such as lighting. He also asked residents to make their opinions on the proposal known to council- members and the mayor With councilmembers George Ram- sey and Burt Edwards absent, the council next heard a short report from City Administrator Mike McCurdy the city's consideration of whether to adopt a hearing examiner or board of adjustment. McCurdy said the issue of appointing a hearing examiner to hear variance and special use requests was still under consideration, He also said he would present a draft of a proposal to the planning committee on June 11. Follow, ing the meeting, the city administrator said the issue of adopting a hearing examiner was one of interest because of the flexibility of the law allowed the city to more or less decide what role such an official would play in the planning process. Following a commendation from Roloff to the city's street department on work underway on Medical Lake street improvements, the council, having no new or old busines to discuss, ad- journed until its June 15 meeting. Academy graduates The Medical Lake Police Department now has a stall of four regular and eight reserve oltlcers who have successfully completed training at the Spokane Police Academy. The most recent graduates from the left are: Reserve Officer Jackle Van Note, Regular Officer Marry Hayes and Reserve Officer Oonna Small. I T 00ere are all kinds of people who need at least two phones. The old saying that "two heads are better than one" is not true when it comes to using the family's only telephone. Husbands and wives are not at their best when it comes to listening ear to ear. And teenagers have been known to argue a single cord right off the wall. Such a pity, when an extension phone costs so little money and brings so much pleasure as well as convenience. And while you are thinking of adding one phone, consider several.
