There were over 200 people at this even which fea" tured a variety of sausages, sauer kraut, and other Germanic foods. It was estimated that this yean's attendance was double that of any other year. Le femmes used the money for the 40 and 8 sehcdar- ship fund and for their child wel¬ fare program; ebttfwnr had purchased the tavern, he shonld request a tavern license from the Board, as he cannot legally operate under the license issued to the previous owner. This license expires Nov. 1. Mr. Birchfield formerly asso¬ ciated with Baxter and Woodman was present at the meeting. A discussion ensued on the best way to finance the polishing pond required by the State for the Village of Huntley to build as an extra stage in treating sewerage before it is put into the drainage stream. Mr. Birchfield stated that general obligation bonds which carry a lower rate of interest must be voted upon and passed 'by the public before they may be issued. The interest rate of grener- al obligation bonds at the present time Mr. Birchfield stated is about 4 and three quarter per cent On Revenue bonds the interest is above five per cent. Revenue bonds however, do not have to be voted on by the public, as no additional taxes are levied. The village of Huntley can raise f40,000 in Rev¬ enue Bonds and $211,000 on Gen¬ eral Obligation bonds. Mr. Birch¬ field questioned the advisability of issuing revenue bonds or others over a 26 year period. He stated the only' thing to do is to raise the water and sewer rate. Mr. Woodman was also present and stated that the minimum bill for water at the present time is 5,000 gallons at $7.00. The vUlage board estimated that the average resident in Huntley pays abont $76 per year for water and sewerage. Mr. Woodman stated that many towns in the area also have a $66 per quarter sewerage charge. Mr. Woodman stated that the engineer¬ ing company has written to the State of Illinois pointing out that a similar polishing plant establish¬ ed in the city of Deerfield two years previously has scum on the CONTINUED ON PAGE SIX State Denies 4^Way Stop (Editor's Note: Following is a letter written to Mr. J.

In giving his r« is for not having a stop sigB#^ 'he cited the fact that there were only about 1,000 cars between 2:00 and 8:00 p.m. on Route 47 at that point. What he apparently over¬ looked iH the fact that we are not trying to protect the cars by this sign, but we are trying to protect school children and other pedes¬ trians who cross Route 47 at this crossing every day. It only takes coe car to strike a school child. It would appear to me that more attention should be given to protecting pedestrians and less concern for having a stop sigrn that would only dday auto¬ mobile and truck traffic a few seconds. This is the only request for a stop sign in Huntley on Route 47 and it certainly appears reasonable, this being the main street in town and especially since it is used twice daily by scbool children.
