One of the unsightly conditions that detract froa the appearance of Freeport neighborhoods is the
growths of high weeds between the curb and sidewalk areas. It is the property owner's responsi-bility
to keep that area free of such weeds. Please do your part towards a cleaner and neater
Freeport. Check your own property, whether residential or commercial, remove ugly weeds, litter
and other eye-sores.

New Highway Equipment
Contrast between the old_and the new is demon-strated
by Highway Department employee Jack
Combs, wielding the broom, while Village Trustee
Lloyd Orr sits in the operator's seat normally
occupied by Mr. Combs. Deputy Mayor William
White points out the features of the big auto-matic
street.sweeper just acquired by"the Vil-lage
to increase the efficiency of the street
cleaning program. Including this unit the High-way
Department has three mechanical sweepers.
The sweeper is known as a Pelican, but instead
of it being a bird whose "beak can hold more
than its belly can", it is a street sweeper
whose "beak" or dirt hopper collects three cu-bic
yards of dirt. -
A special feature of the Elgin Pelican is that
the sweeper is capable of raising its dirt hop-per
up to nine feet high to empty its load into
containers or trucks - eliminating the unsightly
dirt piles on.city streets coumon with the old-er,
conventional type street sweeper.
Other features of this new sweeper are a total-ly
enclosed self-washing system that cleans the
interior of the sweeper after its daily sweep-ing,
a welded unitized chassis of 3/16 inch
steel plate, and a non-jamming, dirt-conveying
system capable of sweeping up bricks, boards,
bottles, and tin cans..

times, he said, and this is one way of doing it.

N.Y. MAYORS' DISASTER REI/EF FUNDING

6 Elk St., Albany, N.Y. 12207 (518) 463-1185
Dear Fellow Freeporters:
We sincerely hope you all have enjoyed a happy and healthy summer
in the boating and fishing capital of the east.
However, this has not been a nice summer for our neighbors in the
southwest of New York. To them this year has been a nightmare. There has
been severe damage to crops not only from flood water but from the spread of
gas and oil through the fields. There has been a severe shortage of food. Rodents
left homeless are foraging for food creating danger from disease and infection.
People are left homeless, living in shelters and institutions while try-ing
to salvage valued possessions from their useless homes. Especially tragic is
the displacement of the aged who are lost, confused and bewildered. Businesses
have been wiped out, big plants have been shut down or have been forced to curtail
operations severely resulting in thousands being unemployed. Individual tragedies
How long will it take for the damaged area to be normalized? Experts
predict 2 or 3 years but many losses can never be retrieved. You can help! ! ! ! !
As the President of the Freeport Chamber of Commerce, Mayor
Sweeney has asked me to be Freeport Chairman for the New York Mayors' Dis-aster
Relief Fund, Inc. , a non-profit corporation coordinated by the 500 members
of the New York Conference of Mayors and Municipal Officials. Financial Assis-tance
is desperately needed now. Don't be reluctant to contribute to the Mayors'
fund for the reason that Federal funds and other groups will be a cure-all. There
are immediate human needs and people suffering. The money collected will be
given out directly by_ the_.Mayors and their Relief Committees to tHe~"people in the
ravaged areas. No long applications or red tape,but dollars for very real, very
pressing people emergencies.
Kindly write a check to the New York Mayors' Disaster Relief Fund
(tax deductible) and enclose with your electric or water bill in the return envelope.
Remember President Nixon has called hurrican Agnes the worst natural disaster
in history -- Care a Little - Give a Little !
Very truly yours,
C. William Gaylor
