From the front page of the March 6, 1958, East Washingtonian:
Concrete Wall Planned by City
City crews some time this year will build a cement retaining wall against the bank at the rear of the city-county fire station.
The city will bear half the cost and the county will pay half. The wall will restore the lateral support to adjacent property not owned by the city, taken away when excavating was done to the bank about two years ago.
The wall will be 100 feet long and 8 feet high and the cost is estimated at $2100. No money was budgeted for the job, so the city will have to pass a resolution, transferring the money from another fund.
