Within the coming months, the
town will vend $880,000 on
provnmenta to itiwli /nd the water
system. This total is sub-divided
follows: $42,000 on water system,
$$,000 on sewer system end $230,000
on. streets and sidewalks. Only
$230,000 in bonds will be sold now,
however, as tt'is anticipated the ad
ditional $60,060 will be made avail
able by property owners paying
their Street sew?matte,
The bonds will be aerial bonds, fa
denominations of $1,000, and will be
steggered so as to be repaid over a
period of 80 years, with the first
ones maturing- in 1948 and the last
in 1968.,
Throughout the lean, depression
years, Fhnnville met Ha obligations
without default. Because at this ex
cellent record, members of the Board
believe these bonds will sell at very
low interest rates. Other towns,
whose records are nothing like i
good as. Farm vine's,. have been bor
rowing money recently ah 8 per cent
and less. Since- the only way of
judging the fixture is by the pastv
it is reasonable to assume that the
forthcoming issue will bring attract

Also within the negt year the
toga wijl spend $186,000 on its light
plfnt. These bonds have been ap
proved and will be ready for sale
whenever the money is needed. Since
much of the machinery hap not yet
been manufactured, it is estimated
thpt the funds will not be required
before winter. ,
