BE VOTED 01 DEC. 31
Here are the road bonds facts:
If the good road bonds carry on Dec.
31, every farm in Maricopa county 'ftiU
be put in touch with paved highways.
If the bonds do not carry, no farm
er or landowner in the county will
know whether his farm will be served
by raved roads, as only a small sec
tion of roads can be constructed in that
The $4,000,000 of the first bond lssu
will be used up by mid-summer, 1921,
at the present rate of construction. If
no further funds are in sight by that
time, the work will have to stop.
If the work has to stop, Maricopa
county will be left with an unfinished
road program. Some roads on some
of the shortest hauls will -have been
constructed. The rest of the project
will be "up in the air." '
Some people are argtiins that the
rest of the program can be taken cSre
of later- They say more bonds can
be voted at a later election. These peo
ple are mistaken. If only part, of the
project is finished, the construction of
the other half will be a most expensive
matter since that half will be discon
nected and will be on the lnoger hauls.
If the present contractors leave after
the funds of the first bond issue are
used tip it will be impossible to obtain
another reasonable bid. For if the
new contractors' did bid, they would
have to bid on the longer hauls, They
would also have to go to the expense
of putting in a new plant.
If the bonds are voted, the entire
project can and will be completed
with the plant now installed. This
means a great saving to the county.
The highway commission has been
advised by its attorneys, KJbbey and
Bennett, that It will be necessary to
call again for bids for the construction
of the roads under this new bond is
sue. This means that we will be able
to take advantage of a falling market
of materials in the forthcoming con
tract. Twohy Brothers, the contractors,
have made the following official dec
laration: "If the bond election to be
held on Dec. 31 carries, when new bids
are called we will submit competitive
bids for the completion of the road
program. If by the time such bids be
submitted the prices of material and
labor are lower, our bid will be lower.
Vote the bonds on Dee. 31 and the j
entire project will be carried out at
once in the most methodical, econom
ical and uniform manner- Every farm
er and landowner will then have the
paved roads. If the bonds did not
carry a few people would be enjoying
the benefits of paved highways, for
which the other people, whose reads
are not paved, will be paying. It is
the part of wisdom and of true econ
omy to carry out the whole project, to
finish the job, and to vote for the
