While we have no new industry to show for our efforts, we are in a lot better position to land the new industry than we wece two years ago. We must not give up the idea of additional industry as a lost cause. It is a much too important a matter to be given the low position on the totem pole it had occupied prior to 1977 and Brammer Manufacturing. Speaking of Brammer, I can just hear people say, "That is dead too, just like the old shoe factory. There will never be another industry in Canton." Well, to those statements I say "bunk". 0 While the situation on the Brammer Manufacturing Company has taken a place on the back burner, the fire is not yet out. At last Monday night's council meeting several members of the council expressed the opinion, the company had "used" Canton for leverage to win a favorable agreement in another community. 0 According to the people involved with getting Brammer to locate in Canton, that is not true. They say the complay is still trying to locate a plant in Canton in spite of the unfavorable rulings by the Missouri Division of Labor and its prevailing wage ruling. 0 Believe me, I probably was the first to think there was something rotten in Denmark (or should I say Davenport or maybe Jefferson City) when the whole prevailing wage issue came to light. Really, a few hundred dollars isn't all that much when you are talking about building a factory that will cost hundreds of THOUSANDS of dollars. Then to come out and announce to the anxious city, hungryly awaiting new industry, that the only thing keeping them from building is "a matter of principal". Well, now really. That is a little hard to swallow. But that is the story. 0 But once again, turning to those connected with the project, they say plans are underway to get around the whole issue of paying prevailing wage set for this area. 0 It is at this time we cannot afford to lose hope in the effort to attract industry to our area. New industry is the much needed transfusion we could use. Industry means new jobs, more money spent in local stores and even the possibility of people moving into instead out of our county. 0 But suppose Brammer does not locate in Canton? We must not just throw in the towel and wash our hands of the idea of new industry. Our experience over the past year of working closely with a prospective industry along with the Missouri Division of Commerce and Industrial Develop- ment and our state legislators has given us a wealth of valuable experience on how to court prospective industries. 0 We must face the fact we will have to get out and work to get industry to locate here. The competition is extremely keen between the states and the salesmanship practiced by competitive cities is enough to make the dean of the used car lots turn green with envy. Granted we have made some blunders in the past, but we have also learned. 0 There is no question about Lewis County being an attractive area to locate a business. We live in an area blessed with a location on the greatest inland waterway in the world. We are served by a modern highway system, a recently upgraded railroad system, a more than adequate supply of energy and most important, we can offer a large supply of labor. Just about everything an industry could ever hope for. 0 We all know we live in the best little corner of the world, so now let's get out and tell the rest of them what they are missing out on. Let's continue to build fires under our legislators and state agencies in Jefferson City in an effort to make our area even better. 0 We've made progress. Now let's keep it up. one election. There is a new numbering system .for ballot issues this year. Five amendments were submitted in the August 8 primary election. Your gener- al election ballot will, there- fore, begin with Constitutional Amendment Number Six in November. Amendment Six and Seven must he considered together, since they beth affect the same section of the constitu- tion. Local political subdivisions are new able to issue revenue bonds for such operations as government operated utilities, for industrial plants leased by government to corporations, and for municipally-owned airports. The bonds have required approval by a simple majority of the voters at an election since 1974. No taxes are used to retire the honds Only bondholders assume the investment risk. Bonds for municipally-own- ed utilities and airports would still require voter approval if Amendment No. Six is adopt- ed. The industrial revenue bonds, however, would be authorized by a majority vote of the local government's govering body, such as the city council. The aim of Amendment No. Seven is utilities. It would not give issuing power to local governrnents like Amendment No. Six. All bond issues would still have to be approved at an election. Amendment No. Seven would allow local govern- ments to jointly contract for the construction and operation of government-owned utilities. Two cities agreeing to build a single power plant would be one example. This is more commonly known as munici- pal power pooling. Amendment No. Eight would allow the General Assembly to regulate and permit some forms of lotteries now outlawed. The types of lotteries to be permitted would be those with ads e: "Wln a vacation for two. No purchase necessary." Another type authorized would he the Readers Digest Sweep stakes. Any change in the state's laws against gambling and lotteries is bound to provoke opposition. This amendment is no exception: Supporters want the right to enter contests which cost them nothing to participate. Several religious ps who oppose it warn of the possibility for deception by unscrupulous promoters. They also contend the adop- tion of the amendment will CANTON. ItK).
