is tho ordinance will bo read the
third time and adopted. At least
this is the way tho situation looks
from tho outsido. There is a possi

a possibility that Mayor Schcrff
will veto the ordinance and it will
bo oi'iic back to council to bo pass

tho result will be if tho Mayor re

pass thc ordinance over a veto, tho
