Bio: Weinberger, Bill ( To Open Self-Serve Station – 1971)
---------Source: OWEN ENTERPRISE (Owen, Clark County, Wis.) 4 Nov 1971
Plas were formulated but realization of them couldn't come about until Tuesday, when Bill Weinberger went to Madison and got the approval of the Industrial Commission to build a "self-service" gas station in Owen (Clark Co., Wis.).
He obtained the permit and construction began yesterday morning of burying two large gas tanks that were delivered earlier in the week from Felker Corporation at Marshfield. Work will soon begin on another building, to be located to the west of Weinberger's Construction Company's garage. This new structure of all glass front will be 12 x 18 in size. Four self-service pumps will be available for the public's use.
Weinberger said that he is hopeful the station will be operative within a month's time from this date, possibly sooner if the pumps are available.
