10.The Perkins Journal Thursday, October 20, 1977 Three test holes in Ripley have produced water; One is completed Three test holes drilled in the town of Ripley have been productive. One hole has been completed. The chemi- cal content is essentially the same as the wei! now in use except for the nitrate level which is less than one milligram per liter. The test holes are located west of the town hall on the railroad right-of-way near a former well. The Ripley Town Board has been advised that where S5% of the legal voters sign a petition the ordinance does not require a vote of the people. As a result of the board's approval of a plan to re-district, the town will be divided into five wards as opposed to three wards now. A map showing this division, proposed by the Chamber of Commerce, has been posted at the Town Hall. An election will be called in April, 1978, to elect two new board members. In April, 1979, the positions of trustee for present wards I and 111 will be up for election. In 1981, the trustee's term for the present ward I1 will expire. On Nov. 1, the town will vote on the proposition as to whether or not the town's water and sewer systems should be leased to the Ripley Public Works Author- ity. Such approval is required by the Farmers' Home Administration before a loan can be granted for the water system improvement project. The election does not involve a bond issue nor an increase in taxes. However, a slight increase in water and sewer bills will be necessary so that the indebtedness may be paid from this revenue. Registrar for the Ripley precinct is Beverly Morris. The town board met with County Commissioners on Oct. 3 to discuss street and /alley repair. The commis- sioners agreed to cooperate in this situation. Carletta Coon stated there has been no new develop- ment in regard to the recall petition. A copy of this petition was sent to the Attorney General, Larry Derryberry, upon advice from the governor's office. A letter of allegations was also forwarded at this time for further study by the Attorney General. -0- CORRECTION It was stated in last week's Perkins Journal that High School teacher Anna Marie Evans had won the Payne County Teacher of the Year award two consecutive years. The award presented was for the honor of her selection this year, not last year as stated. The Journal regrets that this misunderstanding existed.
