Although no official campaign announcements
have been made, the four Chapel Hill Town Coun- -cil
members whose seats will be up for election this
fall have indicated that they plan to run again.
Marilyn Boulton, Bev Kawalec and Bill Thorpe
were first elected to the town council in 1977. Joe
Herzenberg, who ran unsuccessfully in 1979, was .
appointed to the council after the election to fill the
vacancy created by Gerry Cohen's resignation.
"I will probably run again, but I haven't finished
thinking about it yet," Herzenberg said. .
"I'm leaning toward running, but I still haven't
made a final decision," Boulton said.
"I am going to be running for my second term,"
Thorpe said. .
. "1 am not ready to make my official announce
ment, but I expect to run again," Kawalec said.
The deadline for official campaign announce
ments is in early October, one month before the
The four incumbents agreed that one of the
council's biggest accomplishments during the past
four years was the passage of Chapel Hill's new
zoning ordinance last spring.
"The groundwork for that began in 1977," Her
zenberg said. "The new zoning ordinance makes
some important changes in the way the town can
develop over the next years." "
Implementation of the new zoning ordinance is
one particular motivation in running for town '
council again, Kawalec said. "
" I would like to experience it working for a while,"
she said. "We need to have people on the council f
that have a commitment to it, to see if changes need A
to be made. ;i ;T
"We're still in the middle of looking at Apod
plain zoning for Chapel Hill. I feel like there's un
finished business at hand that makes me want
to continue she said. ;
"I don't take the 'unfinished business approach
to running again," Thorpe said. "I would just like
to continue my role on the council in keeping citi
zens informed on town affairs."
Boulton said the council might be more effective
if the members terms lasted six years instead of
the present four. - . '.
"It takes two to three years on the council to
really know what's going on, and then it's almost
election time again. Eight years (two present terms)
is a long time." ; "V-
Long-term goals the four members cited for the
council during the next four years included main- ;
tenance of present service levels, holding down
taxes, expansion of town bikeways and open space
for park land, and more cohesive operation within
the council itself. y
" I am very much in favor of the service levels we
have now," Thorpe said. "We have good police
and fire departments, and the morale is good there.
You haven't heard citizens complain about the ser-;
vice we provide, and you don't see any employees
striking in Chapel Hill." "
Thorpe also said he wanted to keep the. town's
taxes at the current levels.
"I would like to see the council expand Chapel
Hill's bikeways and open space for park land,"
Herzenberg said. 1
. ' .','Tfiere has to be much more give-and-take on
the council in the future," Boulton said. "We've
had:many instances where we couldn't reach a de
, cision because we were unable to compromise.
i ."It's so important to have a group that works
together. Voters need to look at the whole group of
.-. people they're electing, not just as individuals orT
t individual platforms," she said. , .
n.i?. But Thorpe disagreed.
"I think you're elected as an individual to repre
sent the community, so you should act as an indi
vidual on the council according to what's best for
your constituents," he said.

Water shortages like those of past years are still enough of a
threat to the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area that students should take
measures to conserve water, an Orange Water and Sewer Au
thority official has said. ' .
The University's sudden August population increase strains
the area's water supply, University Lake, at a time of year that is
typically dry, said Pat Davis, an OWASA intern who is a UNC
graduate student in city and regional planning.
University- Lake supplies about 6.5 million gallons of water
. each day to the Chapel HiU-Carrboro area when the University
is in session, but only 6 million gallons when school is out, Davis
said. . ; ; ; ' - -
-The lake was designed in 1932 to pump about 3.5 million,
gallons.-- v': . : '7' - -1 : . . . "
The last serious water shortages were in 1968 and 1977. Man
datory, water-use restrictions were imposed by local government
in both instances. Less severe shortages also occurred during the
1970s. : - .
Davis said students should take steps to conserve the water
Reduce shower time. The average dormitory shower uses
about 3 gallons of water per minute. By cutting time in the
shower, students save the University both water and heating '
Flush toilets only when necessary. Every toilet flush uses
about 5 gallons of water. Toilets should not be used for ashes or
Wash only full loads of clothing. A washing machine uses
45 gallons of water regardless of the size of the load being washed.
Turn water off when shaving or brushing teeth.
The University has tried to reduce water consumption in sev
eral departments. '
University Housing has installed water-restricting shower
heads and faucets and less water-consuming toilets and urinals.
The University Laundry Department is converting its machines
to well water from University Lake water.
North Carolina Memorial Hospital is using well water for its
air conditioning units, and University caretaking crews use well
water for gardening as often as possible.

Chapel Hill has spent almost $600,000

, Seven new Mercury Zephyr automobiles
have been added to the Chapel Hill Police
Department fleet this summer as part of a
routine car-replacement program.
Six of the cars cost $7,159, and the
other one cost $4,079.
, Three of the cars, including an unmarked
one, will be used by the detective depart
ment. The remaining four are designated
for use in regular patrol work.
; The Zephyrs will replace older Plymouth
cars, some of which have been driven more
than 100,000 miles, a police spokesman
said. The Plymouths will be either auc
tioned off or used for spare parts.
( The police had purchased smaller sub
compact cars built by Toyota a summer
ago, but ordered the Zephyrs this time
because they were available on state con
Greg Feller, assistant to, the town man
ager in Chapel Hill, explained that there
were other cars to choose from but that
the Zephyrs were more acceptable for rea
sons such as the police officers' comfort.
. "There were other cars we could have
acquired that would get somewhat better
mileage, but there are many more factors
to be considered," Feller said.
