Manchester Town Council donates 1,000 bales of alfalfa to Midwest relief

The Manchester Town Council is donating up to 1,000 bales of alfalfa grown at the town's sewage spray fields to the Midwest flood relief effort, provided that the town doesn't have to transport the hay to its recipients.

The council voted 3-0 last week to donate the truckload of hay, at the suggestion of Mayor Earl A. J. "Tim" Warehime Jr.

Alfalfa and reed canary grass grown at the spray fields usually are sold to raise money for the town's coffers.

Town Manager Terry L. Short said the hay donation "could put us in a very tight position -- but certainly not as tight a position as many communities in the Midwest."
