He added the employers are required to give em- ployees copies of this statement, and they can furnish employees dup- licates if a W-2 is lost. When returns are re- ceived in IRS offices without a W-2 for all income on which in- come taxes have been withheld, a letter re- questing the missing document must be sent to the taxpayer. Until the W-2 is received, or an acceptable ex- planation of why it cannot be supplied, pro- cessing of the return cannot be completed. " Another major reason for delay in issuing re- funds is the failure of taxpayers to include their correct social security number on the tax return and of last week, Warren reported, 1,198 refunds had been delayed in Washington because of incorrect or missing numbers. Are Held Funeral services were held Monday for Gustav J. Meyer, 79, Colum- bia Street, who died March 7 in Valley Gen- eral Hospital after a brief illness.

March 14,1968, Monitor, Monroe, Wash., Page Three Planners Approve (From Page 1) ticularly Talbot Wegg, the city's planning consultant, as to why "that particular configuration" of indus- trial zoning was made. Wegg replied that the amount of acreage followed the recommend- ation of planners'and its placement next to the railroad and highway conformed to proposals by the Sno- homlsh County Economic Develop- ment Council and would take the least amount of prime agricultural land. To this Lawler stated: ' 'I feel nothing other than contempt for the present zoning map since no consideration is given to the de- veloper. The comprehensive plan indicated and we indicated we want- ed to go ahead with industrial de- velopment. We are very disap- pointed." Support to Lawler's view was given by commission member Louis VanNatta. "I'm opposed to the map because we're going to cut Lawler off with 100 acres and he can't do anything with it. There's no prime agri- cultural land there. Frye had some lettuce there and he left. Pict- sweet moved out. We're fighting something that should have been done 30 years ago." Concurring in part was Com- mission Dave Kelln who said: "I personally think we're try- ing to control business. We've got to have business -- though not that which will polute the rivers or anything. The object in having that large a tract in the city is to attract business." Endorsing the map was Brian Ayers of Park Place who saw, with the adoption of contract zoning, orderly growth of industry and a compromise between "some" mer- cantile and an "over extension of mercantile." "I hope the commission is not in the business of business but in planning," Ayers said. Dick Cedergreen, member of the city council present at the hear- ing, questioned the workability of contract zoning for the Lawler prop- erty earlier recommended by the planning commission. Wegg explained that contract zon- ing should not be a part of any zoning ordinance, that it is a con- tract entered into by a developer and the city whereby the developer agrees to develop the area within a specified time. He added: "I would like to see all rezones of large areas subject to contracts where the developers of money- making ventures are limited within a time period if the development could conceivably make for land Church Guild Discusses speculation. It is not healthy to rezone and wind up with nothing happening." Questioned Cedergreen: "If we go into a contract with Lawler could someone file suit against the contract and thereby stop development?" Wegg answered that "Yes, of course, anyone can sue anyone for anything and stop action temporar- ily -- if the court will listen to it." Cedergreen said for that reason then he was not in favor of con- tract zoning and would like to see the area enlarged for Lawler. A member of the audience, Ver- non Thomas of Park Place, asked if his understanding of contract zoning was correct, that "when Lawler gets started he could de- velop one acre and get zoning to develop three more" to which plan- ners replied that his understanding was correct. No other area of the zoning map was questioned. Mayor Jack Law, however, asked for clarification on the restriction of multiple resid- ence zoning to areas where city sewers exist or are coming in within the reasonable future. Asking who determines "reason- able future" and being informed by Wegg that the city would, Mayor Law continued: "Then any area in the sewer study could conceivably be consid- ered for multiple zoning?" Wegg replied: "Yes, but the important thing is to know whether the land will act- ually be sewered. If you're talk- ing 10 years from now the land will already be saturated. More often than not if you have multiple zoning and don't have sewers you're going to have trouble." He added that he was not talking about duplexes but large facilities of 18 or more units. Commissioner Willis George, ex- pressing favor towards the zoning map as presented, moved that the commission accept it and recom- mend its adoption to the city coun- cil. A poll of the planners was asked by Commissioner Margaret Bakke, acting chairman in the absence of Chairman Percy Dyer. The vote was unanimouslyinl favor by Com- missioners George, VanNatta, Kelln and Mrs. Bakke. Calling for discussion of the zon- ing ordinance as proposed and hear- ing none Mrs. Bakke entertained a motion for its acceptance and rec- ommendation of adoption by the city. The motion by Commissioner Kelln was also passed unanimously.
