MURPHY-Al the March I
meeting, the city council approved
the purchase and installation of
new water pumps in the Northstar
Contracts were awarded to
Smith Pump Co. of Ft. Worth for
the two pumps at a cost of $19,625

Jacobs & Finklca of Dallas.
"The existing pumps have given
us excellent service," said Conway,
“but they are due for replacement.”
Several pump manufacturers
submitted bids, but the delivery
dates were too far in the future,
officials said. Smith Pump Co. will
deliver the Bvron Jackson Pumps
with U S.E M motors and con-
struction will begin in two weeks
and is not to exceed 75 days.
No interruption of service is
expected during installation of the
new pumps. Conway.said.

owned by the City of Murphy. This
is the site of the former water

city swap this parcel for 1.600
square feet of property he ow ns on
the northwest corner of Murphy
Road and (he old Coltonhell Rail
