News Editor Zone Hearing Set March 27 A public hearing on the proposed Monroe Zoning Code and zoning map was slated for 8 p.m., March 27 by the city council last week. The hearing date was set when councilmen heard the recommendation for adoption submitted by the Monroe Planning Commission after that body approved both the code and the map after its own public hearing March 11. Copies of the code and a drawing of the map may be viewed at the city hall.

SPECIAL PAINT the end that this state bears the un- enviable reputation of having the highest sales tax in the nation, with the exception of Pennsyl- vania and they exempt food and other essentials, the highest cigarette, tobacco, cigar and liquor tax and a gas tax comparable to any state. "I've been around the state the past few months and there is actually a tax payers' revolt. The straw that broke the camel's back was the real estate property tax, specifically the state tax showing the governor's determina- tion to shift two mills to the state level." Referring to the state budget Rosellini com- pared the present $3,268,000,000 budget to his last one of $1,795,000,000 -- an increase of 80 per cent in three years. 'WVhy?" asked Rosellint. "Population growth? The increase in population has been 347,000 or 10 per cent against the 80 per cent increase in government costs. "Where is it going? To feather-bed the Re- publican nest, build their political machine and perpetuate themselves in office. In the last three years the number of employees in state govern- ment has risen from 29,000 to 38,000, a 30 per cent increase as compared to the 10 percent pop- ulatton increase. "Evans and his cronies are gallavanting around the country increasing the travel expenses. The budget shows expenses for the governor and his boys at 22 million dollars, an increase from 14 million. "in the governor's own office, expenses have mounted to $979,000 over my $357,000 to do the same amount of work -- though we're getting less service out of the office than three years Even the biased Republican press confirms those facts as a matter of record." The people were mislead in 1964, the former governor said, and are having second thoughts they are ready to correct. "The population explosion and industrial ex- pansion call for things that need to be done. We must have the continued services of legislators like Charles Moon, Henry Backstrom and Wil- liam Gissberg and others to give the Democrats a majority in the house and senate. "A true tax reform based on the ability to pay and the exemption of tax on food and neces- sities is long overdue and we're not going to get it with the present state administration. "We need air and water cleanup and will never get it from a government bought and con- trolled by the industrial barons of the state. "We need programs for increased benefits to injured workmen and employment security. It's never going to be done by a majority of Republican legislators and a Republican governor. "If we want to move forward we're not going to do it with the present Republican administra- tion. We shouldn't have lost the aluminum plant, the largest in the country. Olympia and other places wanted it. If Evans had been concerned we'd have had that plant. We can't be concerned solely with the Boeing expansion, we need diver- sification.' ' Rosellini concluded his remarks by urging his audience to communicate with the people and " if we compare the negative attitude of Repub- licans with what the Democrats have to offer we can't lose." Kopper Seeks (From Page 1) and three affidavits of posting notices. At that meeting the council will decide by motion whether to entertain the petition and slate apublic hearing. Findings of a county review board, if the size or value of a proposed annexation requires it, will also be considered. The annexation procedure, drawn by City Attor- ney Storrs Clough at the council's request, was adopted because of difficulty the city said it had experienced with past annexation proceedings, particularly regarding claims of the citizenry that they did not have adequate notice of im- pending annexations and because of inaccurate or erroneous property descriptions. A new public hearing for one such annexation, that of three acres belonging to Norman and Ada Glover of Route 2, was set for the March 27 meeting. The property, which lies to the northeast of Monroe across the county road from Monroe  Heights, was annexed to the city January 24. Subsequent filings with the county revealed the legal description did not include the road, hence the property was not contiguous to the city and a public hearing on the corrected description was deemed necessary. In other council business Water Committee Chairman Joe Moore, asked at the last council meeting to look into with Councilwoman Dorrts Biderbost inconsistencies reported in meter read- ing and water billing, said they found several instances of musunderstanding in residential and commercial billing. Moore reported that only a few commercial readings were being taken in the Winter months from November to May, that no residential readings were made and neither were May resi- dential overages being billed. The latter, he said, was on the instruction of Councilman Allan Borlin, according to the water collector.

Jack Love John VanTrojen "It was agreed when we met at the time that residential meters would not be read in the Winter, but to the best of my knowledge nothing was said about not reading commercial meters." Mayor Jack Law, asking if it was anyone's understanding that May residential overages were not to be billed was answered by Borltn: "The intent was that when they started billing they would start from scratch for residential accounts and not bill for Winter overages-- there is rarely an overage." Asked by Moore exactly how many commer- cial meters were read every two months over the Winter Frank Neisinger, utilities superin- tendent, replied that four were, that at first all were read and then the number cut down to four. Mayor Law informed Netsinger that a cut-back on readings should not be made without notice from the city although he concurred that read- tngs of commercial meters, those that :use no more water than residences, were not necessary during the Winter. On the water committee's recommendation it was agreed that any changes of orders or practices should be entered in the minutes and transferred in writing to those who will make the changes. Mayor Law said he had furthur requested that a sampling of 100 residential meter readings be made to check on possible overage during the Winter. On a suggestion by Moore the water committee was asked to recheck hotels, motels and sleeping rooms to determine how many had been con- verted into permanent living units and had be- come subject to billing. A policy to determine exactly which meters are to be read, how often, and whether resi- dential users are to be billed for overages was to be determined at a continuation of the council meeting on Tuesday night of this week. .- _-,r /F"_-- - SULTAN When Family Comfort Is Involved, Mothers Insist Upon Safe Electric Heat Mothers in Snohomish County know electric heat to be the ideal home heat for timeless family comfort and well-being.

From furnaces to baseboards, Snohomish County mothers insist upon the safe "child- comfort" of electric heat. This doesn't make her extravagant either; not with low cost P.U.D. rates.
