City Council To Meet Weekly Meetings of the Lethbridge city council are to be held every Monday evening until further notice, exceptionally heavy business forcing a departure from the policy of holding meetings every second Monday. Tae decision to meet weekly was reached unanimously by aldermen early Tuesday morn- ing as they labored through another long session and saw little hope of completing their business within a reasonable hour. when they rose they adjourned until next Monday. For many months council meetings nave been generally in session past midnight, and in one recent period of 15 days no less than four council meetings were, required to dispose of business, "much of it involving the land sales rash- Alderman J. A. Jarcine Intro- duced the suggestion of weekly meetings and all fellow ald_er- meii supported his motion that "owiag to the great amount of business to be handled at pres- ent councit' meetings, that until further notice council meetings be held every Monday." come soon. But as more and more business piled up In front of the council he himself presented a. motion to ad- journ. It was delayed for a fetv- minutes while a flurry of resolu- tions was quickly passed. Several Items were tabled uatij future meetings and a stacS: of 18 bylaws authorizing the sale of lands never reached the reading Most contentious matter tabled was the civic centre development program, this being one of the prin- cipal reasons for calling a meeting nest Mondav evening. Appointed Council appointed Miss Helen W findlay, employee sessor's department, as registrar for 1946 to receive applications from al persons quaiifle'd to have their names entered on lists, the appointment being required by an amendment made to the city char- ter at the recent session of the Alberta legislature. Referred to the police commission an application frorn John BolUngsoa and William. Roilingson, local ex- servicemsn and brothers, who wish to establish a "Drive yoar Own" auto business here. Referred, to the police comtrdsslori an application for transfer of a livery license to William LeRoy arlcfe, who recently purchased Bill's Tazl. To Amend Zoning Bylaw Fixed the evening of June 10 as PASSES AT city as- to the city zoning bylaw- Th changes would declare certain areas now in residential zones to be in industrial and commercial zones and would take others out of the Indus- rial category .and place them in the residential zone. Council decided it -would not be i the best interests to change the downtown rouie of the 19 Lh. street north, bus and ordered that no changes be made. At present the route Is north on Fifth street south [rom Third avenue to First avenue, to Eighth south on Eighth street to Third avenue and then eastwards, and council felt the existing route was to the advantage of many residents of North Leth- bridge who board end leave the bus around Gait Gardens. Requests had been made to route the bus south along Fifth street south from Third avenue to Fourth avenue, east along Fourth, avenue to Seventh, street, north, to Third avenue and then east again. Following reports were received and Relief rents report for March, relief invoices for. February, police report for February, treas- urer's report for February, stores invoices for February and the audi- tor's report for 1945. Want Bylaw Changed Referred to City Solicitor H.

We particularly wish to prevent any chain beauty parlor operators from locating In rft's district." In a resolution council explained that while It was la sympathy with the suggestion, it could not take any action that would conflict with the existing citv charter. City Solicitor H. W- stated that "the city council could not re- strict the number of businesses, nor did it have power to prohibit busi- nesses from becoming established as long as they inet- necessary bylaws and other regulations. the closing hours of their pre The operators stated they "consider there is no need for all such places of business being open at all times.'" Tabled a, communication from W. Clinton Miller, regional supervisor of the Soldier Settlement Boarc and Veterans' Land Act, and askec him, to meet with, the council anc explain the subject of fcjs communi- cation in detail. Mr. Miller explain- ed that a. number of five-acre units in the southeastern part of the citj are being purchased by veterans under the Veterans' Land act and he wanted a guarantee that the special taxation .set for these acre- ages would be maintained for a. pe- riod of 15 years from the date of the agreements.
