Implementing the decision of the council with action, the city officals instructed Chief of Police Kalph Peters to visit each merchant who is delinquent and to either collect the necessary nec-essary fee or make satisfactory arrangements with him for payment. Merchants who do not comply within three days after notification will be closed. The feeling of Mayor J. W.c Gillman and members of the fsnOWS Mall , r-uncil was that equal consider- j jfCUS Orem aticn should be given to every businessman in regard to pay- Dilte 1 OSl)OneCl ent of licenses, and that in th? Storms in Colorado during Tulure no delinquencies will bel the past week have stalled allowed. Chief Peters appeared before he council to renew his request for an additional man on the police force so that it will be nossibls to schedule a double shift from 7 p.m. to 3 a m. every night of the week. The council sgain agreed to study ways and means of providing additional help on the police force. Parking Markings The problem of parking cars along State Street was discussed by the council. Ciuncilmen felt that the problem could best be handled by painting markings on the curb and parking area of the street designating the prop er angle for parking. On the recommendation of Mayor Gill- man the council voted to pur chase the equipment necessary to paint the markings on the street. Auction Again Officers of the Holland Furniture Furn-iture Co. of Salt Lake City appeared ap-peared before the council re questing a liberalization of the city's auction law so that the company could hold an auction in Orem for one week and pay a license fee less than that stipu lated in Orem's ordinance. The council informed them that the law would not be changed or overlooked for them and that should they conduct an auction here they would have to live up to the provisions of the ordin ance.

Atkinson Opens Office for Ready-Mix Ready-Mix Concrete Here A new business came to Orem this week with, the opening of the office of C. E. Atkinson Co., 775 North State Street. Operated Oper-ated by the owner, C. E. Atkinson, Atkin-son, the business deals in ready-mixed ready-mixed concrete and contracts for all types of excavations. Mr. Atkinson established the first ready-mixed concrete plant in Utah county before the war, and had to sell it before going into service. He has been out of the service three years and has established his new plant in Provo canyon His light-weight equipment is the newest and most modern available and he will deliver concrete in any quantity. A " "V v rf i 1 ( .. k.Ji is probably meeting require-j; ments for the service. ' The service, if inaugurated, will be a boon to the residents of Orem subdivisions, many of whom have expressed dissat-f lsfaction at the present RFD service. Beverly Place has fc concentration of 200 homes, Morningsidc Heights has over 100 homes, while Mt. View.; Drage, Menimo Gardens and Chrislecle Acres all have over 50 homes each. Efforts have ben made by residents of Mor-' ningside Heights to obtain mail; service through the Provo post-! office because of the dissat-' isfaction with present facilities. Main objection to rural delivery deliv-ery in subdivisions is that the long rows of postboxes are unsightly un-sightly and inconvenient. Postal Receipts 'Up Rapid growth of the city and the phenomenal hike In postal receipts is probably the reason for the new investigation. Postal receipts for the first quarter of this year indicate that business for 1951 will be up at least 25 percent over last year. New Investigation Announcement of the new investigation in-vestigation came from the bureau bur-eau of postoffice operations. Dated April 10, it read as follows: foll-ows: "This bureau is in receipt of information which indicates that the Orem postoffice is probably meeting requirements for the es- j tabli.-hment of city delivery. I "Based thereon, the case ia i being reopened and an investigation investi-gation will be made to determine deter-mine whether establishment of city delivery service is warrant- (j at tnjs time." I Would Hike Payroll Should the eervicp hp ed it would provlde house t( house delivery in sections of Orem where the concentration of homes warrants a carrier, and would necessitate the employment em-ployment by the postoffice of four or five additional carriers.
