Sewage Disposal Plant In
Operation, Tell Hiked
The New Burnsville sew
age disposal plant, costing
approximately $300,000, has
been placed In operation,
thus ending a long history
of offensive and s unhealthy
pollution cf Pine,_ Swamp

With the town’s water
bills, which will be mailed
out the first of February, the
citizens of Burnsville receive —
the unhappy news that the
improvement must be paid
for. At Its regular January
meeting the Town Board
passed an ordinance apply
ing a sewer service charge of
one third of the water bill.
This charge, mhich will be
shown separately on the
bills, will not be applied to
those water customers who
are not connected to the
town’s sewer system.
The sewer service charge
of one-third of* the water
bill, is lest; than the charge
applied in most other towns
that have recently bui |;-
sewage dispdSal systems.
Both Spruce Pine and Hen
dersonville. for example,
have applied sewer charges
amounting to half of the
water bill.
Two Yancey County boys
received the following letter
one day this week:
“I am happy to advise you
that I have nominated you
for competitive appointment
to the United Air Force Aca
“You and five other young
men from my Congressional
District will be competing
for one appointment. For
this reason, may I personally
urge you to attain the best
possible score on the exami
nation. It is my understand
ing they will be administer
ed in March. The Academy
will notify you directly con
cerning the exact date and
“Congratulations on your
selection, and best wishes for
a high qualifying mark on
the examination.'
Roy A Taylor, M. C.”
The two East Yancey High
School seniors receiving the
above letters are Thomas/R.
Young, son of Rev. and/Mrs.
Ralph Young of Burnsville;
and Virgil Styles, son/of Mr.
and Mrs Morris Styles, also
of Burnsville. The Doys are
second cousins.

Numbur Twenty Two
The new sewage plant Is
costing approximately $300.-
000, fifty five per. cent of
which Is being borne by a
Federal grant. The balance
is being financed through
the sale of the Town’s bonds
to the Federal Housing and
Home Finance Agency.
When the town applied for
the Federal grant and loan,
the Town Board agreed to
lmpose~ u~ sewer service char
ge sufficient to cpver the
costs of operation as well as
to provide for the repayment
of the loan. In short, the
town has no alternative to
the application of the sewer
service charge.
According to Maydt Bob
Helmle, Burnsville is fortu
nate In that the plant has
cost less than originally es
timated. The bond election
authorizing the town to bor
row its share ot the cost,
was for a bond issue of $175,.
000. Actually, when bids were
received from contractors, it
was found that $145,000
would suffice. Now It ap
pears that further savings
below estimates will permit
the Immediate repayment of
about SIO,OOO of the $145,000
bond Issue.

period to date is 97.
Only one boy from Rep.
Taylor’s district will receive
an appointment to the Air
Force Academy. As the
above letter indicates, six

examination by Reo. Taylor.
It is gratifying to have two
Yancey County boys out of
six for the district to receive
nomination for apoointment,
