PHONE 73 can improve and exapnd services for both those now residing with in the corporate llmi,ts, and those they are proposed to take into the municipality. The Opposition FROM PAGE 1 able to provide these facilities and fulfill ~ese promises which was made. As For the better water promises we ,the opposition, say the water company, regardless of whether it be the present one, or the City of Charles Town, is going to provide water for the present users in Charles Town and Ranson at an increased rate. And the fact that we are a pa~t of the munici'pality of Charles Town is not going t~o give ,as any reduced water rates since all are going to have to pay more in order to meet the obliger ions of the bonds which will be used to purchase the water com- pany. As a matter of fact by brin~ ing these outlying areas into t, he municipality it will only mean in the near future that Charles Town is going to have to spend more money for a new or bigger water supply since the present pne will certainly not be large enough to meet the demands. Especially will this be true if the two race tracks which they are so anxious to take the corporation, should de- mand to be supplied with water. This demand alone Would force the Council to find another 150,- 000 gallons of w~ter per day tO supply just one track. As for sewerage, it 4s a known fact that only about one-third of Charles Town at present, has any sewerage service and even with this limited service the town can not properly handle it's sewerage i disposal problems. By adding an- other 817.5 acres of land to the ~}ity, this would mean h,mdreds of thousands of dollars more would have to be spent to lay new sewer and water lines, plus building a seweraqe dis,po~'al plant which could handle such a huge waste load. Turning tO s'treets, it is~now a known fac,t tha't there is at pres- ent about 5 miles of streets in the areas which is being proposed for inclusion in "Charles Town. This does not take into consideration any new streets that m~ght have *o be built as the areas expands further. At the present time mo~t of these streets are maintained by *,he S'tate Road Commi~ion. It is the State Road Commission that clears the snows from them in :the Winter so tzaffic can move. How could the Charles Town Council afford to add such a heavy main- ten,,nce and e~pansion burden to their already limited street m~in- ten,race budget. It wmqd seem to us that the vr)t ers in the areas be~n~ souuht by Charles Town should examine M1 t~he facts .in this matter cgrefully rather then accept a lot, of prom ises which we doubt they c~,n ever fulfill, or at least nc~t for years to come. to Your Car FREE of WASHINGTON STREET CUT UP OR (5-7 Ibs.) | TOWN DEPLETION FREE AGENCY POLIO VACCINE BRINGS END TO POLIO CLINICS The free agency ,pollo vaccine has been depleted.
