Home Building Continues Apace f :( i:!:!i ............... .............  ..... Progress Evidenl In Many Respects AI Airway Heights ' Progress can be seen every day in the growth and improve- ment of the Town of Airway tleights which is part of Che- ney school district No. 360 and home of Sun,set grade school. Among improvements are ew water mains, additional street lights, street signs and improvements, more fire hy- drants, natural gas and a new city hall and fire station build- ing. At a recent meeting the council voted to designate the Cheney Free Press as Airway Heights legal news- paper and the National Bank of Commerce of Meclcal Lake as its official bank. The combination city hall and fire station building com- pleted in 1964 has office space and a large council room that is availahl,e for social, civic. educational. :religious and po- litical functions and can be used at any time that it does not interfere with normal ac- tivities of the town. Arrage-  ments must be made with May- or Ralph E. Nolte. Better Fire Protection Five new fire hydrants weer installed in 1964 and placed so that aIl buildings within the town could be reached. Phns are for purchase of several more hydrants and to comply with recommendations of the state fire rating bureau and place Airway ' Heights in an 8 rating instead of the present 9. Tills would mean a savings of 30 per cent to all henmown- ers on insurance rates. Another savings to home- owners and bu,sinesses was a reduction in the water a'ate which ,has been lowered to $5.00 minimum with 6000 gal- lon minimum. Streets=:ied Street impmcenmnts .have been made and street signsi and markers ae been placed! throughout the lxrwn. Also two new street lights hae bem in. stltled: one at the Ch'g .road entrance off the kiglrway and the other by the VCtzke aiaart- merits. Just recently Airway Heights was approved for FtIA aaae loars. owever, Mrs. Smith clerk, said house numbering is an .additional requirement of FHA ,and all residents should comply. Anyone not krtowing his house number may call her at CH 4-3621. New Water Line Pipes have been purchased for a new water line to be in- stalled this summer. Also sev- erM business houses are using natural gas which was piped in throu,gh a franchise graut. ed VCashington Water Power in ! 964. Much of this growth can be attributed to Mayor Nolte, Councilmen George Steen, Wil- liam Dahms, Floyd Merrill Bob Ericksen and Art Mon,ha; Attorney Donald N. Olson, Clerk Valerie Smith, Marshal H D. Smith, Deputy Lyle Cott- rell and Bob Tremblay, civil defentse director.
