Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD WednBldoy, Auguil II. W7I Glendale may be ivrecked Ail Batty, president of Holi- day Village, said Tuesday he to have a decision before the enf4 of the month on whelh- er to demolish or rebuilt the Glendale Recreation Lid. build- ing. The building, adjacent to the site of the new Holiday Inn high-rise holel now under con- struction, partially collapsed July 19 and work on (he hotel has beet slowed down. Mr. Batty said an order re- ceived Tuesday from the Workmen's C o in p e n s a t iou Board prohibits workmen from entering the building. A con- demnation order lias been re- ceived last week from the city declaring the building unsafe. Smith Bros, and Wilson Ltd., who arc building the hotel, are awaiting clearance from their insurance company to clear de- bris from the site, he said. It was hoped that the site could be cleared and construc- tion back to normal within a week or so. Engineer appointed Barry Temple has been ap-, pointed works engicer in the i city's public and water works department, effective Aug. 36. A 1968 graduate of the Uni- versity of Alberta in civil en- gineering, he was previously employed as project engineer with Poole Construction Ltd. at the University of Lethbndge west side site.

ONtY THE ROSE KNOWS-Mrs. Lucille Kolesar, 538 12 C St. N. is baffled about finding 18 blossoms on one stem of her rose plant. She purchased jhe plant down- town, look it home and coaxed it with fish fertilizer, then was rewarded wilh a one- stemmed bouquet. Southern co-ordinator appointed for urbanization-future task force A Calgary-based area coor- dinator for the Alberla Task Force on Urbanization and Lhe Future is expected to start work Sept. 1. Glenn Sinclair, communica- co-ordtaator for the task force, said four co-ordinalors for the province would probab- ly be in the field by that time. The Calgary co-ordinator will I be responsible for several sub- areas, including the Oldman River Regional Planning Com- mission, of which Lethbridge is a part. An initial study on "regional planning effectiveness" is to be undertaken in the ORRPC re- gion and in the Medicine Hat planning region. Mr. Sinclair emphasized the To hedge or not to hedge Lethbridge Deputy Mayor Rex Little Wednesday clarified a council resolution that has caused some concern among lo- cal golfers. The motion, on the agenda for Monday's meeting of city council but not discussed in Alderman Little's absence, calls for the removal of the hedge along the southern edge of Henderson Lake Golf Club. Aid. Little took a few moments off from Ms vacation to explain that his motion was motivated by two concerns safety and a sharing of the beauty of the course with all the citizens of Lelhbridgc. Safety could be vastly im- proved by removing the hedge and building a two-foot-high steel fence right out to Ihe road, he said. Removing t h e hedge would eliminate the problem of chil- dren darting out from cover of the hedge onto road; a fence would prevent the boule- vard from being used as a bridle path. Both were safety problems at the present time, he said. Aid. Little said removing (he hedge would allow all local citizens to share in the beauty of the golf course, which is one o[ the most attractive spots in the city. He foresaw few problems with golf balls landing on the road if the hedge were re- moved. Other centres seem to be able to live with the prob- lem, he said. project will not be limited to studies initiated by the lask force, and the end result of the three-year program will not IK one massive report on urban problems. It will instead attempt to in- volve citizen groups in "inter- est-based planning.' The task force concept allows for any group lo submit any problem for consideration. Mr. Sinclair said if the prob- lem is relevant lo the quality of urban life and has some com- munity support it would prob- ably be accepted for study. The task force's role will he to set up committees with citi- zens, government and political representatives who are direct- ly involved in the problem, to work toward a solution accep- table tc all its members. Re- search help would also be avail- able. Setting up the lask foice in j this way mil help cut through Ihe bureaucratic red tape which often impedes social change and will also avoid having out- side "experts" study local problems, Mr. Sinclair said. Interim reports on specific problems being studied by the various committees will re- place the usual single, final re- port, he said. Another function of the task force administration will be to make information from one committee study available lo other committees which may find it useful. Mr. Sinclair also said a de- cision may be made soon by the federal government on fi- nancial involvement in the task force. At present the province and 10 Alberla cities are con- tributing. An expenditure ol is expected this year for the study.

School and the Lions Centennial: This represents a monetary in- crease of Hardieville water supply may come from Lethbridge SALE GUST SAVINGS City council Monday agreed in principle to supply water to Hardieville, if it is within the city's capability to do so and if a satisfactory agreement can be worked out between the city and the county of Leth- bridge. Hardieville. a hamlet one mile north of Lethbridge with a population of nearly 500, cur- rently has no sewage collection i or water distribution system.

Peak consumption for Leth- bridge can reach as high as J4 million gallons during a hot summer day. II an agreement can be work- ed out, the two water systems might be interconnected at 13th St. and I8th Ave. N. Even if the city agrees to supply the water, the maximum flow requirements of Hardievillo could not be met without water storage facilities near the ham- let, because of the length and size of the Lethbridge supply main. As a result, a 50.000-gallon reservoir and pumphouse would be construcleri near Har- dieville lo meet peak domestic demands and fire demands. The would contain a standby fire pump with en- gine-.
