Mr. William W. Allison

Executive Administrator

Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc.

Atlanta, Georgia 30303

Dear Mr. Allison:

_ This is in response to your letter of August 22, 1969 concerning

the Atlanta Beautification Corps Program,

We have worked out an arrangement whereby these workers

can be placed in permanently authorized waste collector
positions on a temporary basis until the end of the year.

This is possible because of the relatively high rate of vacancies
that the City is now experiencing in the permanent positions.
Iam advised that the Sanitary Division will set aside 40 of
these permanent positions so that the workers can be assured
of employment until December 31, 1969.

This will, for the time being, accommodate this program until
a decision can be made on the permanent continuation of the
program. Because of the City's serious financial problems,
it is my thought that it will not be possible for the City to
finance this program on a continuing basis past December 31,
1969, It would be my hope that EOA, Inc. could locate some
funding source for the program past that date.


Iwan Allen, Jr.
