H I? GKNFRAI.I.Y KNOWN, an election
ha* Ih-cu "ailed by the City Commission
fur Monday October 10, 1037. for the pur
pose of building h Cllv Hall uml Fife HI a
That Hereford I* badly In need of n Fire
Station Is admitted by all. It I* an absolute
necessity, and should Imre been provided sev
erul years ago. Our tire deportment Is on
of the most efficient lo Is* found In any town
of our sire, hut It cannot o|s*rate to Its great
eat efficiency unless its equipment Is kept In
g<N»d condition, and that Is lni|saialhh> with It
housed In the prevent ehuek that we call
our Fire Station.
The only question In llu* mlml.i of any
one with reference to the praismcd IhiiuI
laauc la the need of a City Hall. Hereford
lias gotten along In the past without a City
llall, aud could manage to get along for some
time In the future without one. While wi
ouuld get along without a ('By Hall for r
time, yet If Hereford grows as we all know
she will grow. It will is* only a matter of
abort time until a City llall will be un ub
Tlie City Commission has been cnusld
erlng the matter of a Fire Station and city
Hall for more then a year. We have eonsld
ered the matter from every angle, and aftn
taking everything Into cxmsldcratlon. decide-
that It was best to build a City Hull ami
Fire Htallon at the same time, and our reu
sous for ao doing are as follows:
First: Tin- practical thing for tiny Lowt
to do I* build their City Hall and Fire Sin
Second: A City Hall can be built In con
miction with a Fire Station for much lew
money than H would require to build then
separately and at different times; and
Third: The City Government neuls large!
quarters NOW to properly accommodate tin
public. Some may question this who do in
realise the fact that Hereford la u grow In,
town and that It will continue to grow.
Tbr above tacts being true, to our mind*
the only question tor ue was to decide just
what alas City Hull we should build, end thU
qMotion was also duly considered by u* be
fore we made any decision We realism! tbui
we could build a Fire Station with a email
City Hall In sons sell op that would serve oui
needs for the present, but we d<> not believe
I lie |s*ople of Hereford would Is* siillslleil
with such a plan. him! we concluded that while
we were taking care of our present ncisls
in* should also look to tlit* future needs ot
our City, and tlmt Is exactly what we him
I lied to do.
The building as pin illicit will lie UP \ 73
feel, two Stories high, to be located oil the
corner of Miles Avenue and Third Street,
till* present locution of the obi Fire Sliillon.
The tlrst floor will tie completed to fully tak-
en re of (lie present needs of the lire depart
ineni mill city government, while Ibe SCI-Olid
story will not be Mulshed Inside, us It would
require considerable more money than llu
pro|sHud bond Issue to fully complete both
stories of Ihc building
Some may question the wisdom of the
City Commission In lidding Ibis second story
and not completing it U| tills time. Al Ural
we did not consider doing so. but when we
learned tImt llu- additional cost would Is- only
about $4,INKI over the cost of a one story
but tiling, we soon decided I bill It was tin
only practical tiling lo do. While providing
for the present need of the City, we are hi
tin- same time antliipailiig its future needs
and making It possible to take care of ib-'in
at a small additional ex|s*nse.
The proiswed bond* would bear 5 |s*i
rent interest, mid lo |siy the Interest mi the
l*suc would rmpilrc a lax levy of only eight
cent* ou each one hundred dollar* valuation,
and tills rale will create a little surplus over
and above the amount required for Interest
to In- used In caring for |Miyuicnt of prliiiipal
in the future. The city's InX rule for I03I-’
mis $i :ui on each fUNi valuation and our rate
for 1037, with the eight cent* added, would
only bo $.140. The rial net Ion III rale was
made |toM*lble by (be city retiring some obll
gallons during the year.
This Isiml ts*m* ha* been put up to the
is*-plt* by the City Commission for Iholr eon
sill-ration, anil everyone should express their
wishes iu the mailer by voting next Monday

that we nil! use our beet effort* lu seeing that
