Sused to tion of the budget requests pre-
and con- pared by Earle Newton, execu-'
contract tive director of the commission.
3. Wolfe It points out that the 'seed mon-
commis- ey' supplied by the state approp-
iged and rations largely for operating
expenses has been the catalyst
for donations for capital pro-
j- ects to St. Augustine Restora-

of the state program.
In addition to the more than
half a million dollars which has
reached the program through'
this source, several million dol-

restoration projects.
4, ,- The new properties which
Shave been acquired by the com-
mission are the Cerveau house
at 26 Cuna St. and the Bitto prop-
erty, which housed the Musical
Museum, on St. George St.
S The commission approved the
purchase of the Cerveau prop-
S erty for $19,000 at the meeting
yesterday and announced that it
had exercised the option, pre-
viously approved, to buy the Bit-
to property for $40,000.
Commission member Lawr-
Sence Lewis Jr., was recorded as
Snot voting on the motion to pur-
Chase the Cerveau property,:
S stating that he was not ac-
quainted with the property.,
Newton said the house was an
early Anerican structure that
Could be restored and used for
S rental property for the present,
Adding that its real value at the
'present is that it will afford ac-
Scess to the property which the
'commission owns at the rear of
the Spanish Inn.
