Commissioner Clarke brought up the matter of WPA project for building
a dam at Edna Lake, Lowering Tunnel No 2 and replacimg and building new
water lines in the ditribution system. ^r. Clarke advised the Council
the City's share of expense to build the dam according to the State Speci
fications would be about $1994"00, this to be built of piling, round timbers
and decking. The Council discussed earth dam which some of the Council
stated would be less expensive, Mr. Clarke advised the State recommeded
the dam as per map and diagram shown. The Council advised ^r, Clarke to
include the dam in the project, ^r, Clarke advised this work will have to
be done in the summer at low water.
Mr, Clarke advised that tunnel No 2 is considerable above grade line
which causes the water to be syphoned over this hill and although we had
installed.the new line.it will not increase the flow of water. By boring
a tunnel 42 to 47 feet bel0w tunneli No 2 this will be below grade line and
give a full flow of the 12|Lrpipe, Installed from Clear Lake. He stated it
would have to be a tunnel of about 750 ft in length and would cost the City
approximately $3500.00 for powder. Engineering and cribbing. It will also
be necessary to get title to the land as the WPA requr© this. It w^s also
mentioned to concrete the ends of the tunnel which would make a reservoir
holding around 450,000 gallons of water, but no definite decision was made
in regard to this part. The Council advised ^r, Clarke to include ttie
tunnel in the project.
The matter of securing an engineer for laying out the digging of the
tunnel was discussed, 1/r. Bennett stated that Spencer Hinsdale was in the
community at this time and he did this sort of work and it might be possible
to get him to do the Engineerirg work. The Council instructed ^r. Bennett
to get in touch with Mr, Hinsdale and find if he would consider doing this
engineer work for the City. Mr. Clarke also stated a man named R. T, VJaggoner
of Eugene does this kind of work and is available. The City Recorder was
instructed to write ^r. V/aggoner and find what charge he wil], make per day
for this work.
"SB
320
Commissioner Clarke also advised he feels it necessary to make changes
in the present water ordinance. The Ordinance now used gives the same charge
for taps either large or sinall. In checking '^dth other Cities it is found
there is a greater charge for large taps.asThfeepresent City of Reedsport
tapping (flee of $10.00 will not pay the cost of making large taps. Mr. ^la.Tke
also stated he did not think it advisable to put large taps and saall taps
on residence lines. He feels these should be uniform as the person with
the large tap can draw so much water the person with a small tap does not
get adequate water, lir, Clarke also recommended that a standard meter be
adopted and no person allowed to use any other kind of meter. He stated a
great many have parchased inferion meters which are Inzs: not dependable and
give a great deal of trouble. The City Recorder was instructed to write
Portland, Salem and Eugene and find what meter they use and would recoirjnend.
iir, Clarke also stated he feels the Irrigation rates are unjust as a great
many pay $1.20 per season for irrigation while others pay the $ .30 per month
the year round for outside taps. The parties paying the $1,20 per season
can and do use the service the year round. His suggestion these be put on
a flat rate per month for an outside faucet.
All these suggestions are for the Council's decision when making changes
in the water Ordinance.
The matter of changing hours of the City IVater office was discussed,
the present hours are 8:00 A M to 12:00 Noon and 1:00 P M> to 5i00 P
The Recorder advised he feels it will give better service to have the
hours 9:00 A, V.. to 12:00 Noon and 1:00 P. M, to 6:00 P K as ag great
many people who work until % 5^00 P M are nnable to get into the office.
Also change the Saturday time from 9:00 A. M. until 1:00 P M as Saturday
afternoon there ise a very small payment of water rents made.
The matter of ^r. Clarke getting Saturday Afternoons off was discussed,
^r. Clarke stated that it will be impossible for him to take all Saturday
afternoons off as there are times when he has to get repairs and materials
ready for i/londay work. The Couhcil discussed the above changes and motion
was made, seconded and carried, changing the hours as above stated, to take
effect March Ist, 1941«
The Redorder was instructed to write Bert Roberts of Ne Bieber,
Calif, in regard to a garage wh44h is partially located in G Street,
This building is in a dilapidated condition and the city wishes the sane
to be raised or moved off the street.

being changed if the property can be used for anything further than just a
serfeice station as they did not want a repair shop in that district as they
fe^l there would be consideraftle scrap iron and refuse around the place.
They also stated there would be more objections filed if the signers of the
petition thought the premises would be used for anything other than a service
station,
Kotion was made, seconded and carried, instructing the City Recorder

it will be greatly appreciated. After some discussion by the Council
they, decided not to take any action on the mtter at this time.

MUIBICIPAL PRELBaNARY PETITION FOR ANNEXATION
OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF REEDSPORT, OREGON, TO
THE CENRAL LINCOLN PEOPLES' UTILITY DISTIIICT.
TO THE STATE HYDROELECTRIC COK^klSSION OF OREGON,
We, the duly elected and presently acting members of the Common
Council of the City of Reedsport, Douglas County, State of "^regon, being
desirours of having the territory within the City of Reedsport annexed
to and consolidated with the Central Lincoln Peoples* Utility District
in the manner provided iii the laws of the State of ^r;-gon. Lavs 1941,
Title 114, Chapter 2, Oregon Compiled laws Annoted, as amended, and
having adopted a tesolution to this effect which authorized the Mayor and
Recorder to execute this Municipal Preliminary Petition on behalf of the
Common Council, do hereby petition and request the Hydroelectrid Commission
of Oregon to mkce a preliminary investigation as to the advisability of the
proposed annexation. A Certified copy of said resolution is attached hereto
as Exhibit A and by this reference is made a part biareof.
Upon annexation to and consolidation with the said District of the
territory within the City of ^eedsport, Oregon, the Central Lincoln
i^eoples' Utility ^strict would consist of the territory within the
municipal boundaries of the City of Reedsj ort and the area within the
boundaries of the Central Lincoln Peoples* Utility ^istirict.
The assessed valuation of the City of ^^eedsport, is $529i625.00
and its population, as of the 1940 census, is 1472
The purpose of the proposed annexation of the City of ^eedsport,
Oregon, to the Central Lincoln Peoples' Utility i^istrict is to create
in conjunction with the other parcels of territory and municipalities in
Lincoln, Lane, Douglas and Coos ^ounlfs, Oregon, which are served by the
West "^oast Power 'Company's "^oast Division (herinafter referred to as
"the Coast Division"), an enlarged peoples' utility district, the bound
aries of which will conicide with the Coast Division's service territory.
The enlargement of the Central Lincoln Peoples' Utility ^istrict by annexation
is desired by the Common Council of the City of Reedsport, '-'regon, because
of the West Coast Power ''ompany's offer to sell to the Central Lincoln
Peoples' Utility district its entire ^oast Division. The annexation to
and consolidation with the Central Lincoln Peoples' Utility District of
this ^Municipality isi desirable for the following reasons:
n
(1) It will facilitate the acquisition by the
Central Lincoln Peoples* Utility district of the
West Coast Power Company's ^oast division at an
early date.
(2) It will insure that the Coast division will
be purchased as a unit, thereby eliminating the in
creased cost which results if utility properties are
purchased piecemeal and severance damages are included
in the acquisition price.
(3) It will ma.ke possible the continued operation
of the Coast Division as a single inte~rated utility
system, thereby insuring the benefits of a unified and
competent management, and insuring the economies which
will result from the operation of the Coast Division as
a single unit.
(4) ^t will make possible the participation in the
election of a director by the voters of this municipality,
thereby affording them representation in the management of
the enlarged Central Lincoln Peoples' Utility District.
