Cedar "Valley -Ask For Bridge Improvement A delegation of Cedar Valley residents met Monday with the Utah county commission, urging that safety measures at the Jordan river bridge on the highway from Lehi to Mercur via Cedar Fort be made. The approach to the bridge is dangerous, and three traffic fatalities fa-talities have occurred in that area, members of the delegation pointed out. In response to the request, the commission wrote the state road commission asking that as a temporary tem-porary measure sodium vapor lights be installed at each end of the bridge. The steel structure of the bridge is very light and unsuitable to present traffic and its construction should be classed as a No. 1 secondary secon-dary road project for Utah county, the letter stated. Fire Chief Makes Report For Year The Lehi Fire Department answered 25 calls to fires during the past year, reports Fire Chief Thomas Powers- .Thirteen of these calls were within the city and 12 were county fires. The total damage, with the exception ex-ception of one large fire, was only about $40.00, the chief reports- The one fire, on property of Hyrum C. Evans and Sylvester Evans, caused a 'considerable loss and was believed to have been caused by small boys playing with matches. State Bank Elect Officers At Annual Meeting Election of officers for the ensuing en-suing year was one of the major features of the annual stockholders meeting of the State Bank of Lehi, held on January 14.

Bradshaw and Emmett L. Chipman, board members. Mayor Dean Prior stated Wednesday Wed-nesday that Lehi stands to lose $2500 In Road Improvement, funds, if the Governor's proposed plan of returning the Class B and C license registration money now allocated to Cities and Counties should be adopted and this $800,000.00 fund returned to the State coffers. "This fund means a great deal to us," Mayor Prior stated. "It enabled us to improve almost 2 miles of oil and gravel roadbed in 1940, a mile and a half of sidewalk plus other improvements along the State Highway in 1939." "The Governor seems to lose sight of the fact that the long time road improvement plan launched in our cities was made in anticipation of this money. It has aided tremendously tremen-dously in our labor making projects proj-ects and naturally this would have to be curtailed If the fund were lost." 'Contrary to published sreports, the Homestead Exemption act of 1937 did not intend to eliminate local municipal levies as seen In the following clause of Bill 19." "Nothing in this act shall be construed as exempting from taxation any property, real or personal, from the payment of taxes levied by or for the benefit bene-fit of cities and towns, special improvement districts, metropolitan metro-politan water districts, irrigation irriga-tion districts or drainage districts." This bill was vetoed by the Gov-orner Gov-orner and did nc- become law.
