Carran who is reserving his opinion until that time. Carran goes on to explain that the Cuyahoga County Charter Commission has pre sented its second draft of a pro posed County Charter, which will be submitted to the voters of Cuyahoga County at the coming election on November 3rd. Additional hearings before the Charter Commission will be held and a number of amend ments will be proposed. The present draft is not final. The Cuyahoga County May ors and City Managers Associ ation has recommended that garbage and rubbish disposal should not be ipcluded as an ex clusive County function. Shaker Heights and the City of Cleveland have strenuously objected to the County taking over the Shaker and Cleveland transportations systems. There is quite a feeling in Lakewood against the County taking over public health.

The present draft of the Char ter provides for an equitable re imbursement to Cleveland of all Cleveland General Fund tax money paid by Cleveland in past years for its water sup ply. But Cleveland officials have indicated great dissatis faction with this provision and want to be reimbursed for the many additional millions that Cleveland and suburban water consumers have contributed to the Ceveland water system in theif monthly water bills. Many suburban officials ques i o n the advisability of the County taking over poor relief a very large percentage of which is now paid by the City of Cleveland, which has the bulk of the relief load of the County. These officials argue that poor relief should not be assumed by the County unless water supply and sewage dis posals are taken over by the County. Some dissatisfaction has been expressed with the number of assemblymen and the number of districts from which they would be elected. The Cuyahoga County Mayors pnd City Man agers Association has requested that the redistrictfng provision be mandatory, not optional as in the present draft. There are certain essentials that are basic, are found in the present draft, and should re main there, says Carran. These are: A new form of County Government. The establishment and op eration of sewage treatment plants and sanitary and storm drainage sewers. The establishment and operation of water supply systems. The planning, construction, and maintenance of metropol itan roads and highways. It is hoped that -in the re maining few weeks the Charter Commission will not adopt ammendments to the present draft just for the sake of com promise, and thereby make the charter less acceptable to the suburban population. The wording of the present charter draft in regard to sew age and water supply seems very fair and equitable and should not be rendered inef fective by requiring excessive payments to Cleveland or requiring their submission referendum. the city for relinquish sewage system. a small portion of the used in the sewage has come from tax Most revenue has been Only money plants money, gleaned through the water bills of the consumers. Some Cleve land councilman want the coun ty government to reimburse Cleveland for this much larger investiment. All suburbanites, except Berea which has its own water system, have contributed already to the revenue for the Cleveland plants through their individual water bills. There fore, argue the suburban of ficials, their residents would be paying twice. However, Carran feels that once an agreement is made on the sewage problem, the suburbs will benefit from having it* un der control of the county. At present, East Cleveland along with several others suburbs has a case in court against the city of Cleveland for charging water rates which it feels are excessive. Another contemplated pro posal which Carrans feels would weaken the charter if it is in cluded is the decision to have the voters of a community that owns a facility which the charter might wish to take over vote on it. He feels that the community’s representatives would be better able to make this decision then the voters at large. So many of these proposals are only conjecture at present and makes the evaluation of a county charter hard to deter mine says Carran. Be!""*--*: WWW’, w ji n Patrolman Thomas D.

City Gets 3rd Award For Safety In keeping with its winning ways the city of East Cleve land was awarded a Certificate of Achievement for meritorious work in police traffic supervi sion in 1958 by the Interna tional Association of Chiefs of Police. Only one other midwestern city in the 25,000 to 50,000 pop ulation bracket received a simi lar award. Chief of Police H. S. Weaver states that he hopes to keep all trophies and plaques awarded to the city in a display case so that the public which helped to make them possible can see these salutes to the fine traf fic record. That was also the point that Commission President Ralph H. Barton made when he accepted the Grand Award Plaque for the city last week at the AAA awards luncheon. Barton cited team work as the key to the success. On this team, he explained, were Chief of Police H. S. Weaver and his constantly alert corps of offi cers the Municipal Judge, Stanton Addams who stands firmly behind the law enforc ing officers the civic organi zations the strong school safe ty program conducted by the department’s safety division and the constant co-operation of the Cleveland Auto Club. Barton also credited the su pervised playgrounds, pools, ice rink and other recreation fa cilities in East Cleveland as a factor in keeping children play ing in safe areas. All of this, he held, reduces traffic haz ards for both children and mo torists. Three Gallon Club Member Keefer makes his home- at 965 W’hitby rd., Cleveland Heights.
