Two potential tax trimming
measures passed City Council
unanimously last night.
The resolutions instruct the city's
administration to plan for reductions in
two tax levies which support specific
city services: the tax earmarked for
garbage collection and the tax collected
to pay back city debts.
COUNCIL ALSO took action to:
" Buy $8,000 in computer equipment
from the M. Pester Co. of California -
ignoring the lower bid of Data General
Corp., which city officials said refused
to comply with the city's Human Rights
r Schedule a public hearing on an
amendment to the housing code which
would redefine the meaning of "owner-
occupied dwelling" to include
" Ask the federal government, as it
does each year, for $1.6 million for the
city's Community Development office;
" Set up a citizens committee to
develop a long-range, comprehensive
energy policy for the city.
Councilwoman Leslie Morris (D-
Second Ward), head of the minority
Democratic caucus on council, last
night traded sharp words with David
fisher (R-Fourth Ward), sponsor of the
two tax measures.
Morris taunted Fisher with the wor-
ding of the resolution, implying, as she
has said openly in the past, that Fisher
is hurrying the tax resolution through
council to enhance his chances in the
April 7 council elections.
MORRIS AND other Democrats,
although they voted for the resolutions
last night, have pointed out repeatedly
that council cannot give final approval
to a city budget until June.
The tax rollbacks, if put into effect in
June, would represent a reduction in,
revenue to the city of about $1,350,000.
Most of the cut would come from the
levy used to pay back city debts, many
of which city administrators say have
finally been paid back this year.
The tax reduction would likely be
reflected only slightly in residents' tax
ANOTHER resolution introduced last
night by Fisher and
approved at first reading would amend
the city housing code to define
cooperative dwellings as owner-
occupied units, rather than their
current status as rental units. If the
resolution is given final approval,
cooiperatives would be inspected by the
housing department, not every two
years, which is the required period for
rental units, but rather every five
Fisher said that cooperatives "do a
good job of policing themselves," and
inspectors could be freed to inspect
other buildings in the city, such as
student housing units.
In approving the $8,000 computer
contract, council in effect spent $1,000
more than the lowest bid for the sake of
enforcing the city's Human Rights
THE LOW BIDDER, Data General
Corporation of Southfield, refused to
submit data breaking down the
company's workforce by occupational
category, sex and numbers of minority
employees, according to city officials.
Data General officials could not be
reached for comment yesterday.
The company currently maintains
the city's traffic control computer
under a separate contract, for which it
was the only bidder.
Council last night also approved
sending the 1980 Community
Development Block Grant (CDBG)
application to a preliminary review by
regional offices of the Department of
Housing and Urban Development
After this review, the $1.6 million
grant will be sent to the main HUD
office in Washington, D.C. for final
approval in early May.
The application, reviewed by four
community groups, provides 24.8 per
cent of the block grant for housing
rehabilitation and winterization, 31.5
per cent for street repairs 7 and park
improvements, and 31.1 per cent for
public service programs.
The energy steering committee, as it
is to be called, will oversee the work of
five citizens committees, each of which
will study an area in which the city
might save energy.
The five task forces will study energy
savings possible in housing, land use,
transportation, city government, and
alternative energy sources.

Gromyko slams U.S. policy
MOSCOW-Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko accused Washing-
ton yesterday of an international campaign of deceit aimed at slandering
Soviet policies and ruining the Olympic summer games in Moscow.
In a rare reference to the United States' plans to boycott the summer
Olympics, Gromyko called American actions an "obvious example" of their
attempts to cover up their own expansion in the arms race, and to create
"They've even decided to forbid the sale of Coca-Cola to participants in
the Olympics who are accustomed to using this drink," Gromyko said in a
luncheon speech t visiting Hungarian Foreign Minsiter Frigyes Puja.
China's premier may retire
PEKING-Deng Xiaoping, China's senior vice premier, may step down
from his post in favor of his younger protege, Zhao Ziyang, a diplomatic
source said yesterday.
"How true it is, you never know," the source said. "The information you
get has about a 50-50 chance of being right." He added, however, that he had
heard it from a highly respected informant.
The 76-year-old Deng would retain his vice chairmanship of the
Communist Party, which gives him -his real powers as China's most
influential policy-maker, the source reported.
Only a month ago, Deng said he intended to continue actively in politics
The Chinese diplomat has said that he is eager to see his policies of
economic pragmatism continued, and he has recently promoted other
Chinese politicans who hold similar views.
Supreme Court backs SEC
WASHINGTON-The Supreme Court yesterday refused to block Securi-
ties and Exchange Commission (SEC) subpoenas for documents in an
investigation of publisher John McGoff's alleged ties with South Africa.
The justices upheld the federal court order that McGoff turn over
information the commission asserts is necessary to determine whether the
publisher or his companies used South African funds to purchase stock in
Panax Corp., a publicly held newspaper publishing company.
The SEC investigation began last year following reports that the South
African government allegedly gave McGoff more than $11.5 million to buy
various media properties in the U.S. The federal agency wants to determine
whether McGoff violated the reporting and ownership provisions of
Gulf offer may end strike
DENVER-A contract agreement that could end the longest strike in
the history of the Oil, Chemical, and Atomic Workers (OCAW) International
Union may win quick approval by the union members, union president
Robert Goss said yesterday.
OCAW accepted a two year contract yesterday from Gulf Oil Corp.
which Goss said is "expected to set a pattern for the rest of the industry."
The agreement with Gulf, effective until Jan. 7, 1982, provides a wage
increase of 52 cents an hourabove the $9.55 industry-wide average in the first
year, in addition to a five per cent wage increase. In the second year,
workers will receive a 10.5 per cent pay boost.
Gulf also offered increases in its health care package, a dental plan, and
an extra week of vacation for long-time employees.
Cleveland faces more busing
CLEVELAND-Junior high school teachers and administrators pre-
pared for the second phase of Cleveland's federally court-ordered
The city's 94,000-pupil district began the first stage of the plan last fall by
busing about 8,500 students. The second phase will involve busing an
additional 11,000students and desegregate approximately half the district.
The plan calls for students to report for classes, one day at a time,
In a related development, the Cleveland Board of Education's last-ditch
effort to avoid further racial balancing was rejected yesterday by the U.S.
But according to the chief of the court's school monitoring office,
Leonard Stevens, the district may not be completely prepared for the
additional busing efforts. Stevens also noted that the second phase will be
more difficult to administer than the first because it involves a wider
geographic distribution of students.
Cass County may secede
LANSING-Cass County secessionists descended on the capital yester-
day to lobby for workers compensation reform, claiming Michigan's high
benefit costs are a key factor fueling their revolt.
' Kenneth Myers, chairman of the Cass County Board of Commissioners,
said high Michigan taxes and workers compensation costs have created a
business exodus to neighboring Indiana.
"We're being overtaxed," Myers said. "The cost of doing business in our
county has been a burden.
Myers said his county might secede and join Indiana if it cannot get "the
necessary changes up here in the legislature."
The secession movement will give the county leverage, Myers believes,
and secessionists are fighting in court for the right to put the issue on the
According to state Sen. John Welborn (R-Kalamazoo), "If they do not
get action, if they want to secede, they have a right to."
