Barlow who assured us that our editorial com- ments of January 11 relative to taxation on mobile homes was and is accurate. Talbot Wegg and John Baker, as well as other mobile home owners, might be in- terested in a proposed Town of SuRan ordinance. Ordinance No. 293, as it was designat- ed, if passed, will make it mandatory for mobile homes to be so established that they become eligible for the county tax rolls. According to the Sultan mayor and town councilmen, the ordinance is under consideration as a means of deriving reven- ue from mobile homes which the town does not currently receive. A report on that particular meeting can be read in the Sultan Valley News of Jan- uary 18 Good counsel. . . The Fryelands annexation has taken place. The Monroe Planning Commission has adopted a new comprehensive !and use plan. They have also made a specific recommendation for Fryelands. These two proposals are now before the City Council. The questions before the council are: Should the city adopt the new land use plan?

Wegg explained the new business zoning allows a freer use of the land than the old classificat- ions of neighborhood and community business. Wegg said he was distressed with the shape of the city, made even stranger with the new annexation. "I would have preferred the city straighten out its boundaries before annexing large pieces of land, but that's water over the darn," he said. Musing over the city's boundaries which skirt pockets of county land Wegg remarked that "the Monroe Police Department must have a difficult time knowing instantaneously which Mon- roe residents they can serve and which ones must be referred to the county sheriff." Planning commission members voiced no par- ticular opposition to the proposed zoning map, with planner David Kelln saying he thought the plan should be accepted as presented. No action was taken towards acceptance and planners will continue to study the map before setting a date for a public hearing on it. That action will follow or occur simultaneously with adoption of a zoning code now under study. In other business before planners a variance request was granted the Union Oil Company to demolish and rebuild a service station at East Main and Woods Street. Also granted was a variance to Eaststde Savings and Loan Association to landscape a portion of their property at the southwest corner of Main and Lewis Streets, using one of the four spaces earlier planned for off-streetpark- ins. Planners agreed the landscaping would be destreable if employees were not then forced to park on either Main or Lewis Streets. The were discussed, strong and The next Round Table Armstrong.
