News Tribune, Jan. 29, 1974 The Duluth City Council yesterday indicated support for a 10 percent increase in rates for the Duluth Steam Corp. and will vote on the hike next week. The corporation is privately operated under a city franchise, but any rate adjustments require council approval. While absenteeism declined sharply yesterday in eastern Duluth schools hardest hit by the flu last week, the illness seems to be spreading west. Substantially higher rates of absenteeism were reported yesterday at Grant, Chester Park, Stowe and Riverside elementary schools.

The company’s greatest debt — $215,191 — is owed to the city of Eveleth.
