[ One councilman reported to 1 Council that Saturday night all[ streets running North and South I through Charles Town were[ blocked at the railroad crossings [ for some 35 minutes. Also at the Monday night meeting Charles Town patrolman Louis Brunswick was promoted to the rank of cor- poral. The Council denied a request from the General Telephone Company made through the town of Ranson, for permission to hook their property located on' Crane's Lane onto the Charles Town and Rauson sewer system. General Telephone plans to move its construction and in- stallation services to this property. It was pointed out at the Council meeting that the land is located outside the corporate boundaries of both Charles Town and Ranson. The denial is in line with the policy which the Council has had for some time, that of not per- mitting hook-ups to the municipal sewer system of any property not within the cor- porate limits of Charles Town or Ranson. A permit was granted to General Telephone Company in: the amount of $95,000.00 to construct a cable vault and remodel former offices on North George Street in Charles Town. Council agreed also that because of parked cars blocking the view of drivers, that no parking signs would be installed 15 feet from the intersection of Davenport and Harewood and also Harewood and Eagle Avenues.
