A Road We Will All Walk ' City Recorder-Treasurer Bruce Decker informed the council, that although he felt the project was an excellent Ambulance Drivers Compensated For Trips Park City ambulance drivers will be receiving a flat $10 fee for their trips to Salt Lake City it was decided by the city council at their Thursday May 6, meeting. Previous to the council's action the drivers were not compensated for their trips. The council's decision resulted from a recommendation recom-mendation from City Manager Wayne Matthew's that the drivers be paid $7 for their services. Councilwoman Eleanor Bennett pointed out to her collegues, "It is not uncommon for the drivers to spend hours on their trips to Salt Lake City" and moved that the council award them' "a nice round fee of $10." The city officials voted unanimously to accept the motion.

It's a road you all are going to have to walk someday." . Council Votes Although the project is still in its early stages the council voted unanimously to work out a satisfactory agreement with the senior citizens when it came time for them to move their building. Beer Liconse Denied . A request for a class C beer, license by Robert Nelson, owner of Grunion'g Grub and Lunch Tub, was denied by the city council at their Thursday, Thur-sday, May 6, meeting. The request of the operator of the mobile catering service was presented by City Recorder-Treasure Bruce Decker who, along with Police Chief Thayle Lund, recommended to the council that the beer license riot be approved. Agreeing with Decker and Lund, City Councilwoman Eleanor Bennett said, "We certainly don't want a floating beer wagon driving around town." In a two to one vote, with Bennett and Councilman Jan Wilking voting against the, license and Steve Dering voting for it, the council rejected Nelson's request. Police Officer Assaulted Park City Police Officer Alex Huggard sustained "considerable injury" Monday night, May 3, when he was assaulted by a motorist being questioned for drunken driving. The' incident occurred, according to Police Chief Thayle Lund, when Huggard, along with Officer John Bircumshaw, spotted a vehicle weaving out of control , on Park Ave. As the officers gave pursuit the driver narrowly missed a number of road construction signs before he ran into a pile of dirt and came to a halt. Arriving on the scene, Huggard began questioning the driver while Bircumshaw stayed in the patrol car to run a check on the vehicle. As Huggard . was' conducting con-ducting his investigation the suspect became "very violent" and attacked the officer. Before Bircumshaw's assistance put an end to the altercation Huggard had received injuries to his back and ribs. Lund reported that although the extent of Huggard's injuries are not yet known the officer" is still experiencing a good deal of pain.'" , The driver, who gave a Salt Lake City address, was charged with assault and driving under the influence. City 0m f Down On Old Places Taking aim at Park City's old dilapidated buildings, the city council initiated an investigation in-vestigation of condemnation procedures to be carried out against the community's "potential health hazards," at their Thursday, May 8, meeting. Acting on Councilman Jan Wilking's motion which described ' the rundown buildings "as both eyesores and potential health hazard-s," hazard-s," the city officials voted to order Building Inspector Lyman Lewis to begin formulating for-mulating a list of offenders. Supporting Wilking's claim of health hazards, Police Chief Thayle Lund told the council he has received reports of children playing in the town's deserted buildings. Arguing1 for immediate action, Councilman Steve Dering informed t. his collegues, "If we wait for someone to get hurt before we do anything about this problem we are shirking our responsibilities as elected officials." .. Once the list of offenders is compiled the city will request the property owners to clean up their own buildings before any legal action is taken. uracils Chamber Votes Support For Sewer Bond Joan Seman explains Art Chamber luncheon. The Park City Chamber of Commerce at its Wednesday, May 5, lucheon meeting voted unanimously to Ts,upport , sejsexlMnjr ejection. The Chamber is expected to mount a vigorous campaign urging voters to endorse creation of the Snyderville Basin Sewer District. A Must During a question and answer session, City Manager Wayne Matthews emphatically backed the . district saying, "It's got to be passed. There's no question about it." Developer Rob Morris, who will be spearheading the plea for passage said "a lot of misconceptions" exist in regards to the plans of the sewer district. Morris also claimed that with most bond issues, "It isn't a question of support. People just vote 'no' because they don't understand them." He added, "It's paramount that everyone do more than just passively support the election." , Along these lines it is anticipated an-ticipated that the Chamber will gather and, disseminate information championing the need for the district. Maybe Next Year In other Chamber business,. Bill Coleman told the group that prospects of building the proposed downtown chairlift this summer are dim. Although noting Salt Lake City lenders are "happy to see up trying to pick ourselves our-selves up, Coleman said it is almost too late to . order equipment needed for the lift and that a rush to have the lift installed could result in mistakes. Fourth Street, Fifth Street and the Coalition mine building are being considered as the loading area for the lift, he said and added that Jf ID Festival activities at either a conventional loan or the creation of a limited partnership could provide financing.

An upgrading of the festival's image, promotion of tourism and the raising of funds are receiving the most emphasis, she related. "Funds raised during the Festival will be used for the betterment of the community," com-munity," she said. Seman named registration fees, sales commissions, . concession subletting, logo rights and parking andor ; transportation charges as the prime money makers. Remarking on the stringent entry requirements in force this year, Seman noted that expected hostile reactions have failed to materialize. "We've had real good vibes from people who are pleased by our efforts in this area." It was also revealed that the possibility of the Utah Symphony performing in Park City during the Festival "looks very good." Ijy NEW LISTING: Older home on upper Sampson.

Site King' fMg 1 ' The Silver King Lodge Burglary of April 8, that had the perturbed victim threatening to put a full page "dvertisement in the Los Angeles Times newspaper urging potential vacationers to stay clear of Park City, has been solved - according to Park City Police Chief Thayle Lund. Don J. Yott, the victim of the crime, had promised to buy the advertisement when he became irate over the response he received from the Moana Corp. who manages the Silver King Lodge. Although Yott, a controller for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills. Calif., did not follow through with his plans for the advertisement it was reported he had prepared the ad but was persuaded by Moana officials in San Francisco to reconsider. L.A.P.D. Two former Park City residents, Thomas J. Hutchison, Hut-chison, 20 and Thomas Howard Anderson,21, were arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department last week and charged with the break-in break-in at the Silver King Lodge.

BILL McCOMB-649-9280 MIKEIVERS-649-9279 According to Bircumshaw's report. Lund disclosed, the solving of the crime was largely due to a source who informed the police of the men's names and where they could be found in Los Angeles. Contacted in his office in Beverly Hills. Yott was told the men were arrested as a result of police tracking them down through their use of his credit cards. Yott added, ad-ded, "They couldn't have been too smart since they were using my credit cards extensively." Commenting further Yott stated, "I know it's only hearsay, but I understand they were a bunch of dopers, which doesn't surprise me." Moana Dispute Yott's dispute with the Moana Corp. arose over treatment he said he received from the company's Park City General Manager Dennis O'Brien. Moana announced last week that O'Brien was being replaced by Bob Wells of Park City. In an article about the burglery appearing in the April 14 edition of The Newspaper Yott had stated: "When I reported the robbery the manager refused to talk to me or to come over and offer his condolences. I was told over the phone by some secretary that if I wanted to make a claim or a complaint I should contact their lawyer by mail." . Explaining the reason for his irritation the disgruntled vicationer said'fn "dealings' with service organizations the client pays the bill as I did with Moana. Since they are dependent on people like me for their livelihood, it makes it very hard for me to understand un-derstand their attitude." Consequently, at that time. Yott said he was "deadly serious" about taking out a full page ad that "would state the facts and emphasize how the Moana management 9:00 A.M. in MULTIPLE LISTING uf RICK BECKER ROB MORRIS acted as if they could care loss ulxHit my predicament." Moana Apology Upon his return to Los Angeles - Yott said he was contacted by the Chairman of the Board of the Moana Corp. Hob llarman and the company's com-pany's Vice-President Terry l-asore. who told him they had read the article about his hnrelprv in The Ncusnanrr. - - n "They expressed their apologies for what happened in Park City and convinced me it was not indicative of the kind of professional operation they try to run. I was really impressed with their sincere efforts to help me with my problem concerning Park City ."Yott said. "Anytime I get a call from a company's Chairman of the Board. I'm. impressed," he added. Letters Form Park City Besides the reaction The Newspaper article of April 14 initated from the Moana Corp. Yett said he received two letters from people in Park City who apologized for the treatment he was given, "One of the letters" Yott revealed,"asked me to come back to Park City and to be a guest in their home." "I'm appreciative of the interest the people of Park City have shownespecially The Newspaper which played such an important roll in straightening this whole thing out. "Yott said. .
