Pateros Council Con't. from page I son said she would prefer to present chee Community Foundation, which her own long-held goal of installing was founded when Wenatchee sprinklers and lights on the Pateros Valley Clinic was sold. R funds pedestrian mall. Bridgeport needs drain ditches opened Con't. from page 2 might be another person's ciassic- car-in-the-making. But a city or- dinance already in place does require cars to be stored in an "unobtrusive manner." Taking a recent ride through town, Jenkins and city Superintendent J.W. Troutman counted 52 houses with 92 cars that had been parked without being moved for some time--"we have some real junkyards within this city," Jenkins said. City ordinances require that cars be stored out of sight in garages or behind fences, or covered--with covers designed for cars and not just a sheet of plastic, Troutman said. Old derelict buildings are also a concern. They pose a safety hazard, attracting children to play in and around them, Jenkins said, as well as being unsightly. The city council has voted to send letters to the owners of eight builidngs requesting that the structures be repaired or removed. The city will start proceedings to remove the buildings if the letters are ignored. There is no ordinance specifically covering drain ditches, but Jenkins said the city council will pass one if necessary. "We don't want to be the heavy and come down on people," Jenkins said. But the council will do what they think is necessary to combat the problem, he added. City officials are willing to work with anybody who is willing to make an effort to comply with the or- dinances. The city will give some leeway to property owners who make "reasonable progress" toward fixing up their property. (The mayor cited the case of the old Kileman's feed store, located across the street from city hall. The owner has had the building painted and consequently will not receive a let- ter, also, Jenkins said, the city would expect more work to be done on the building." Mayor and council want to move quickly because the city's ap- plicatious for funds are coming up for consideration and Bridgeport will be under special scrutiny. Also, the results of a 1990 survey conduc- ted among residents indicated the top priority for them was the cleanup of the community. Brewster School Con't. from page 1 the acoustics would be satisfactory, and that provisions could be made to install track lighting. Jacobsen was asked about placing the stage there, and said the idea had been discussed before. The objection to putting the stage there was that the size of the audience would be limited. Sattler said that was acceptable-- "we may have to start out small," she said. Money for the stage would have to be raised within the com- munity; Sattler and some of the others present said they would ex- plore the possibility of sponsoring fundraisers. Some changes to the building plans were made aRer the first public meeting. Elementary school teachers had expressed dissatisfaction with the location of the parking lot, across the street from the elementary building at the site of the present high school. They said it would force teachers to carry large amounts of material required in elementary classrooms across the street. A second parking lot has been added near the elementary building. The basic remodeling job at the elementary school will add six classrooms and will expand the of- fice area, Christenson said. Three other projects to be bid as separate parts of the job, will be added ff money is available. The first would add four classrooms, the second would add two classrooms, and the third would enlarge the elementary school library. "This gives usthe op- portunity to maximize available dollars," Christenson said. Come check out our Office Supplies!
