Three members of a local Food Buying Club, operating from a home on Bridge Street, appeared before the Brewstor Town Council to explain their operation, in answer to a recent inquiry made by Police Chief Larry Cline. Cllne, who visited the home after a citizen complaint regarding conducting business in a residential area, had asked the members of the club to remove their outside sign until the mat- ter was looked into. A female spokesperson told council the home is rented for centralized storage of bulk food orders, obtained mostly from the Equinox Food Ex- change, located in Springdale, Washington. Equinox is a cooperative food wholesaler, worker managed. "Nine families are key members of the home, which they plan to use for twice monthly meetings, workshops, occassional yard sales, children's craft classes and birthday parties and exer- cise dasses," said the spokeswoman. Dues of $2.00 per month are charged for membership with exemptions given those local citizens who share in paying the rent. The group claims in a written statement, "We do not sell food as a store," and also "surplus food is stored for purchase at a later date by mem- bers at the same rate as purchased." In addition they claim "We are a non profit Food Buying Club and are in- spected and certified by the Depart- ment of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Field Service Office, in Tacoma, to accept food stamps." Members of the council advised the representatives that no decision regar- ding the matter would be made until an opinion as to the legalities of the situation was provided by City Attor- ney, Bill Cottreil. They were reminded that they are conducting a business in a residential area creating additional parking problems with nine faraes using the facility, not to mention the trucks making deliveries to the home. According to Bob Arias, Town Superin. tendent, "When you do anything that requires a continued exchange of money, that constitutes a business." The matter was tabled until a legal decision is provided by the council's at- torney. Airport maintenance was the next item for consideration as council heard Councilman Frank Relchert explain his recent meeting with a representative of the Federal Aviation Administration. "There are large cracks running both ways on the runway needing to be sterilized, treated and filled," he said. Reichert also said, "We need brighter beacons" (which Dave Smith is looking into) and "We may be eligible for taxi Way lights under the grant program but we must first eliminate these main- Girls Varisty Tennis o. c, Bonnie Schluneger, Captains Award; Sherrl Nelson, Most Inspirational; K/m Taylor; Deanna Hull, Most Valuable Player. uery food club group tenance problems to rid ourselves of our unsatisfactory rating if we want to pursue this course," he said. Reichert also advised the council that this means clearing the taxiway of an old road that lnteffers with the clearway. He said "We need some brush hogs and tractors to mow also as the area is in need of general maintenance and clearing." While on the topic, Reichert told coun- cil members that he estimates there are approximately 60 acres at the air- pert that the town could lease to a far- mer for alfalfa growth. It was decided to approach some farmers with the idea after further investigation into the amount of water the well will produce in the area. Councilman Tom Watson asked ff this land should not be put up for bids for a lease, but was told it is not requlrd when leasing land, only when selling. The Bridle Club's proposal to lease their building to the Children's Home Day Care Center, in the event the nur- sery's building is sold, was brought before council by Bob Arias, who ex- plained that the Bridle Club would put all money received into a fund ear- marked for roofing the existing building. Council members, although finding no immediate objections to the proposal, felt that a more precise proposal was necessary in order for them to make a decision. The matter therefore was tabled until more infor- mation was gathered. In other matters, the permit for sale of fireworks during the Fourth of July was signed for the Kiwanis Club and permission was granted to the Cham- ber of Commerce to set off a firework display on June 27, during Bonanza Days. Rick McGulre, Councilman, permit- ted his name to be placed in nomination for the Jail Commission which will be formed in the near future, agreeing to serve if chosen by the Commissioners of Okanogan County.
