Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, August 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 South In Short Education councils endorsed BROOKS The school committee of the County of Newell has endorsed the plan to establish local education councils in county communities. School superintendent Richard Burns says the first local council could be started by the home and school association in a community. Another way to launch a council would be to hold a general meeting of parents and school committee members. "Besides the liaison between home and school and between citizens and the school committee, such councils may spearhead plans to meet local says Mr. Burns. "At Bassano, for example, the Early Childhood Services program, now approved by the department of education, had its origin in the local school-community liaison council. Work on the provi- sion of adult education programs is in progress."

Break-up of pavement lashed by councillor Region housing office to open in Cranbrook By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor FORT MACLEOD Coun. Phil Hodnett suggested at this week's meeting of town coun- cil that Coun. Ron Tilbe should resign over his handl- ing of a 62 block paving pro- ject. At the same time, council agreed to pay Everall Construction (Edmonton) Ltd. half the amount council held back after two blocks of the firm's paving broke up on main street here. Brian Bentley of Everall Construction discussed the project, completed in the fall of 1973, with council. He will ask the company president to accept instead of for two blocks of paving on 24th Street. Councillors said they agreed to the payment only because they sought an amicable solu- tion to the impasse. "They did a poor job on 24th Street and they were very late in doing Coun. Hodnett said later. "I think myself the town should not have to pay this Monday night he suggested Coun. Tilbe, in charge of public works, should resign. Coun.

I don't know why the mayor told the crew to go ahead without it. I don't think you can hold back our money." Said Coun. Hodnett: "I have been told he didn't say that." Then Mr. Bentley said, "It looks like there is room for doubt on both sides. I am sorry our company got a bad reputation because of it." Said Coun. Day: "I think the company does pretty good work. Sixty blocks out of 62 blocks is very good." Secretary Roy White had the final word: "The superintendent (of Everall Construction) could have said, 'I will pave it under protest.' Former mayor George Buzunis said later in the week that the paving broke up on a two block section because a water line had been installed before the paving project and the ditch fill had time to settle. Residents have requested a sewer be constructed in the alley between 21st and 22nd Streets but council has not budgeted for it to be done this year. Said Coun. John Davis: "We can table that and I can talk to these people and see what we can do. If we have a valid reason for putting it in this fall, maybe we can stretch the budget." Council had planned to install the sewer next spring.
