Remodeling of Sldney's swimming pool was set hack for at least another year when contractors failed to submit bids on the $100,000 project Monday night at the City Council meeting. Representatives from two in- vestment firms attended the meeting to bid on the sale of t50,000 in bonds to cover the pool construction. Another written bid was received from the First National Hank of Twin Bridges, Mont. Construction on the pool was to cost $100,000 however one-half of the money had already been obtained through a Bureau of Outdoor Recreation grant. Sidney voters approved the sale of bonds on the other half during the last city election. D. A. Davidson, an investment firm from Great Falls opened the bidding at six per cent. The Yellowstone Bank of Laurel, Mont., submitted the lowest bid of 5.3 per cent. The Twin Bridges bank bid six per cent in their written entry. The council rejected the bids on the sale of the bonds since no construction firm bid on the actual work. The council will apparently call for bids on the bonds and the construction again in January. In other city business Monday, the council heard a report from Director of Public Works Harold Mercer that oiling of Main Street from the Pella Lutheran Church to the railroad tracks on the east side of Sidney will begin sometime this week. :':':':': i:': i:i:': .:!:-: ":::':':': ": ":': ":-:':':':':':':':':" :':': ":':':':':':':':;.:':':':.;: i:'.':':':': ":':':':':" :;: :: ;:::;:::::;:::;:::::::::::: ::::::::::::::: :::: :: ::::: ::::::::::::: :::::::::::::::::::::: :5: ::::::: ::::::::::::::::::::: ::: :: ::::::: ::::::::::: :::;:;:':;.:':':" :'::::::::::: PIONEER AND OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER OF RIC'HLAND COUNTY 00rralb "'Montana's Top Award Winning Family Newspaper" Montono Better Newspoper Contest tot 1973 Vol. 66 - No. 40 The Sidney Herald, Sidney, Mont., Wed., October 3, 1973' Price 15c ......... ...o.oo....o.o.oo...o....o..oooo.o..o..,.,, ...,.,.,...o.. .............. .............................
