'Companies To
Divide Gty’s
Lis. Program
A knotty problem which had
frustrated efforts to establish a
health and accident insurance pro
gram for city employes was solv
ed last night when two competing
insurance companies agreed to
split the business.
Asa result of the compromise,
the New York Life Insurance Cos.
was given the contract for health
insurance coverage and the Gulf
Life Cos. will get the life insur
Mayor C. B. Harvey and Com
missioner Paul R. Roberts cast the
only dissenting votes.
Harvey based his opposition on
the fact that Gulf Life actually was
low bidder on the health insurance.
“I’m going to be forced to vote no
on this motion. It seems that the
agreement means that the high
bidder on the health insurance is
going to get the bid. We asked for
bids and the low bidder should get
the contract,” said the Mayor.
Commissioner Roberts explained
his vote simply: “I haven’t chang
ed my mind."
Commissioner Delio Cobo, who
held the key vote, said, “I’m glad
they got together, the city will be
nefit by it."
Commissioners Louis Carbonell
and Jack Delaney voted to OK the
City Considers
Land Transfer
The city commission will meet
with the Monroe County Anti-Mos
quito District commison shortly to
discuss their request for a plot of
land at the city dump to construct
storage facilities for their equip
ment and office space.
William Warner, director of the
district, and Neil Saunders, chair
man of the Mosquito panel, appeal
ed to the commission last night
for the deed to the land.
But the city fathers expressed
the thought that they would grant
a long term lease but would not
agree to giving the land outright.
They held that the city might need
the land in the future.
Saunders said he was sure his
panel would ge along with such
an arrangement.
Mayor C. B. Harvey also took
time out last night to laud the op
eration of the anti-mosquito forc
es who have taken over the super
vision of a sanitary fill program
at the city dump. "It has been a
very beneficial arrangment for us,”
said the Mayor.
Worker Escapes
Death In Hopper
Schaffer, 41, slid through a giant
dock-side hopper with 10 tons of
coal yesterday and escaped with
out injury.
The coal had become stuck in
the hopper and Schaffer and sev
eral other employes went to the
top to poke it loose. Schaffer lost
his balance and fell in.
Other workmen left the opening
at the bottom of the hopper open
and after about 10 tons of coal j
had poured through, Schaffer fell
out, unconscious.
He was revived, taken to a hos
pital and later released.
Sheriff John L, Spottswood was
given permission by the city com
n,.ssion last night to construct an
experimental television antenna or
Stock Island near the American
Legion home.
The resolution gives permission
for six months with an option to
negotiate a long term lease.
Spottswood plans on establishing
a closed circuit TV service here.
