Search Failis To Find
Sponsors Of Movement
To Oust City Manager
A survey of more than a score
of civic-minded Sunset Park
Property-holders, j n c luding
several persons who were
prominent in the anti- exten
sion fight, yesterday afternoon
failed to unearth any clues as
to the. identity of a “citizen’s
committee” reported to be
seeking the resignation of City
Manager A. C. Nichols.
No facts could, be found to
support reports circulated in
the city hai? yesterday that a
Sunset Park committee, com
prised of 64 property-owners,
would present the city council
with a petition asking Nichols’
resignation when the city
board convenes next Wednes
day.
The reports indicated that the
committee was dissatisfied with
conditions in regard to present
charges for water and sewer
age. The petition reportedly
charged that the city has failed
to reduce the water and sewer
age charges to the rate in ef
fect in the old city limits.
