COUNCIL APPROVES DEADBOLT PROPOSAL:

Lock ordinanc4

By- NICK KATSARELAS
City Council last night
unanimously passed on first reading
a proposed housing ordinance which
would require the installation of
deadbolt locks on exterior doors and
locking devices on exterior windows
for all 23,000 rental units in Ann Ar-
bor.
City Council will hold a public
hearing in two weeks, and take a
final vote on the issue. If the or-
dinance is passed, it will go into ef-
fect September 1.;
Councilman Earl Greene (D-
Second Ward), who proposed the
amendment, said growing crime in
the city is a main reason for the or-
dinance,
"WITH THE rises in rape,
muggings, and break-ins, this is a
reasonable kind of safety measure
for people in rental.housing."
Greene said the approximate cost
of a deadbolt lock is $35, which he
called "a pittance to pay for the
health and safety of the tenants."
Greene added that most of the ren-
tal units that have been recently
constructed already have the dead-
bolt locks installed. , d
LARRY SALLIOTE, president of

the 2,000-member WPOA, said he
thinks the ordinance, "is a good
one."
"My philosophy is that the tenants
are customers and pay a just fee per
month," said Salliote. "They should
get the appropriate safety."
The proposal also has the backing
of William Yadlosky, the city
housing bureau supervisor of the
Building and Safety Department.
YADLOSKY EXPLAINED that
the building department has been
"kind of embarrassed" because no
such law is in existence now.
Police Chief Krasny 'said the
deadbolt look serves "a good
deterrent function. Any safety
device put in a household which will
better protect the household mem-
bers is a good one," added Krasny.
Krasny said the deadbolt lock is
"an effective tool to cut down
crime," explaining that plastic
credit cards, nail files, and small
jimmy tools can't unlock a deadbolt.
"One of the major problems," said
Krasny, "would be a tremendous
cost," but he added that this should
not stop the landlords from in-
stalling the deadbolt safety device.
Earlier in the evening Republican

Y likely
and Democratic council members
clashed verbally over an ordinance
which would require fire escapes to
be built to second and third floor
bedrooms in rental units.
Council members Leslie ,Morris
(D-Second Ward) and Ken Latta (D-
First Ward) supported the fire
escape ordinance for safety reasons.
But Republican council members
Ed Hood (R-Fourth Ward), David
Fischer (R=Fourth Ward), and Louis
Senunas (R-Third Ward) along with
Mayor Louis Belcher, opposed the
fire escape ordinance, saying that
the ordinance would mean higher
rents.
"If we talk about aiding the
renter, and we add this kind of cost
to the unit, I'm not sure we're doing
him a favor," council member
Fischer conc'uded.
As a result of the debate, Belcher
appointed James Cmejrek (R-Fifth
Ward) and Morris to work out a
compromise in committee.
The verbal battle over fire escapes
developed after Ken Jensen, who
described himself as a full-time
landlord, spoke against the proposed
ordinance.

Council puts 2 bond
issues on April ballot,

Texas Instruments
For today...and tomorrow.

(Continued from age i i
dition of nearly $24 for a piece of
property assessed at $30,000.
City voters will only be asked to ap-
prove two of the projects - a storm
sewer project and, improvements to
South Industrial Highway, totaling
$900,000 in bonds.
Of the three ballot proposals voted
down last night a plan to borrow
$800,000 to fund the city's annual street
resurfacing program fell first, by
unanimous vote. Council members said
they thought an annual program should
not be funded from money borrowed
over five years.
The next project to get the hatchet
was a proposal to improve the intersec-
tion of Packard and Stadium Streets at
a cost of $200,000 in borrowed money.
Leslie Morris (D-Second Ward), made
the motion to delete the project from
the April ballot.

Morris was immediately backed up
by Republicans Fisher and Hood, two
council members who generally end up
on the opposite side of the fence.
The vote was 83 gainst the project.
The third project to fall was a 'hefty
bonding proposal to imnprove State St.
That project failed by a narrow 6-5 vote,
with Republicans Hood - and Fisher
siding with the Democrats.
The remaining two projects .passed
by a 9-2 vote with only tax-cutters
Fisher and Hood dissenting.
OF THE THREE projects that fell,
Mayor Belcher supported placing two
of them on the April ballot. Belcher said
the city could already cut a surplus of
about .75 mils from property taxes
collected to pay back bonds.
Assistant City Administrator Patrick
Kenney, the city hall budget manager,
supported Belcher's estimate before
council.
