Oct. 14, 1953 - Petition asks pipeline vote: Petitions requesting a referendum on the Lake Michigan water supply went into circulation under the sponsorship of the Green Bay Federated Trades Council this morning.

Arthur Karwedsky, secretary of the labor organization, said that decision to start circulation of the papers was made at a meeting Tuesday night. The petitions will be presented to residents by workers organized on a block-to-block plan and in local plants. A sufficient number has been printed for 20,000 signatures. Some have room for 25 signatures and others 50, 75, or 100.

The question suggested for the referendum is: "Shall the City of Green Bay construct and acquire facilities to obtain a supply of water from Lake Michigan and pay therefore by the issuance of Waterworks Revenue Mortgage Bonds of said city in an amount not exceeding $5,700,000."
