Two local contractors sub- mitred waterline bids with Bull's Plumbing and Heating having the low bid of $3280. Sundance Plumbing and Heating entered a bid of $3340 for the job.

Tracy Motor Co. submitted the only new pickup bid. The bid price for the 1977 Dodge 4-wheel drive pickup was $5,300. Council members also dis- cussed the need for a new motor grader to replace the city's old unit and Mayor Floyd Cart said the city is presently trying out a used 1972 model from Miller Equipment, Rapid City, at no obligation to the city. The mayor said the 1972 model carries a $28,500 price tag and that the city could probably get $3500 for its old patrol. Cart said the Rapid City firm would lease the 1972 patrol and that the city would like to lease it for $1400 a month with the lease payments being applied to the purchase price at the end of a year. However, no action was taken by the council. Leases Glen Wyatt, who leases an approximate 80-acre city pasture east of the city, attended the meeting to check on the lease. At its meeting in February, the council had discussed the pasture because Tommy Seeley has a registered stud pasture adjacent toit. After some discussion, the council agreed to lease the pas- ture to Wyatt for the next two years at $420 yearly and to also extend George Sommem' lmme for two years at $150 a year. The leases must be rebid after two years. Other Business Several ordinances came before the council for consideration. Accepted for publication were a television franchise ordinance and ordinances concerning sub- divisions and annexations. Also considered was an ordi- nance vacating portions of an alley and a street in the Schelidorf Addition. Olive Schelidorf sub- mitred a petition to the council asking for the vacation.
