OUTSTANDING MONROE High School junior classmen were honored by the Monroe Masonic Lodge, F.A.&M. 160, during a recent banquet. Top honors were presented to George Neal and Carrie Williams, holding plaque. Other To buy or not to buy a $3,000 to $4,000 cash register? That was a question Monroe City Council- men tackled last Wednesday evening. A further study was the final answer. The issue was presented by Mayor Grace Kirwan. She reported that the city has re- ceived bids for two different electronic cash registers to be used by the city clerk's office for collection of various city bills. The mayor reported that a bid from NCR was turned in for $4,410 plus $236 sales tax. A second offer was received from Sweda, for a similar machine for $3,360, including tax. "Do we really need that type of machine?" Councilman Hap Schrag asked. "What good is it or what advantages are there?" Mayor Kirwan explained that it would save time and assist with bookkeeping chores. City Clerk Betty King noted that on heavy days the office handles about $4,000 for var- ious funds, such as water, sewer, garbage, permits and others. She said now they all have to be totaled by hand at the end of the day. finalists include from left, Trudy Marshall, Jay Fankhauser, Dennis Meske, Jerry Auvil, and Vicki Beetchenow. The two top students were selected for the academic and community activities. --Staff Photo A new cash register would allow the clerk to keep a running total on each individual fund. Schrag suggested that the matter be consid- ered further before any decision is made. "Let's investigate further before we make a decision," he said. The mayor ordered the clerk to keep track of all manual time spent on the process for the next month and report back to the council. Tolero Rebekah Lodge 100F Hall- 602 S.
