Land Office THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 1966 Nomber 31 The Sundance City Council WIonday night delayed askirtg for bids on a six-inch water main until easements can be obtained.

Ted Rounds, member of ,the school board, asked the city to penta prime about 2,000 yards of school playgrunds. Monte Markeseth, recently hir- ed city marshal, appealed to the council for a new police car. H~ complained that the present car is difficult to steer and is poor- ly suited for police work. He suggested 'chat the council buy a used highway patrol car for $850 or reimurse him for the use of his own automobile. Councilman Harry Habeck said the council should inquire into the cost of a new car. The council agreed that the present city squad car should be replaced. The council passed an ordin- ance authorizing the city marshal to accept bail bond, at his dis- cretion. Police Magistrate Charles Donaldson has establish- ed specific bonds for the more common offenses.
