The consulting engineering firm has been working on the study under the direction of the City- Now under waY, the second phase of the study alsoincludes specific planning recommenda- tions for the community. Future desired land use will be a ma- jor consideration. FUTURE YEARS "New and improvedpublic fa- cilities will be considered, which in turn will be the basis for planning capital improve- ments and budgeting for future years," the consultants said. Part of the information re- quired to successfully complete this second stage will begaiued from questionnaires heing sent to city residents and business- men. Recipients of the question- naires are urged toflll them out completely and return the forms promptly. Two vital factors now con- cerning those involved in the study are getting a good return of the questionnaires and anex- eellent turnout at the public meeting. ORDERLY DEVELOPMENT Hopefully, the end result of the study will be, "the sustain- ed action of the city and county governments, as well as the business community, in order for a more orderly development of the area to re suit," hccording to Morrison Maierle, Inc. Simply put, the study should result in some hard and fast rules to apply toward the bet- terment and progressive de- velopment of our community.

The new landfill, located just east of the old dumlground site, is operational for city garbage trucks only. The old dump- ground is still open for public use, according to Harold Mer- cer, director of public works, Sidney. The new landfill site will be open for public use when the city acquires the proper equip- ment to conduc the landfill op- eration at full capacity. NEW DOZER Council members agreed to appropriate $20,000 for the pur- chase of a used D-7 or D-8 doz- er for use at the landfill. The new appropriation was allowed when Council learned the origin- al sum of $15,000 was not ade- quate to buy the required equip- ment. Mercer informed the Council that the bid lettiag on the high- way project, southofSidney, has been delayed again. The State Highway Commission has post- ported the letting until January. The City Council, along with Sen, C. R. Thiessen, wrote let- ters of protest to the Montana Highway Commission. A planning study, presently under way in the area under the auspices of the City- County Planning Board, was also dis- cussed. Morrison - Malerle Inc., a consulting engineer firm from Helena, is conducting the study. The three-phase study is now in the second stage, coun- cil members were informed. Mercer told the group the study, when complete, should afford the Council some concrete ties and goals in city plarming.
