PHONE 328-7121 "Do you have a ipare pair of glaitef for holiday Landlord tenant board to be sought for city By .JOK MA Herald Slaff Writer A brief requesting Llic estab- lishment of a landlord-tenant advisory board be submitt- ed to city hall, possibly next week. Co orclinaling Hie public movement calling for such a Ixxly to resolve landlord-tenant disputes are Wendy Hasmusscn and Wayne Clark of the Leth- bridge Community College. Miss Itasmussen said the group not know exactly how the advisory wil1 composed. According to the ex- perience of such boards in other cities, il will distribute information to the public on the Thistles threaten southern farmers Farmers are being warned to control Canada thistle and sow thistle- to keep farm losses down. Murray McLclland, district agriculturist for Lcthbridge and Warner counties, said the this- tles must be controlled between now and freeze up. "Canada thistle is on the in- crease in southern Alberta and additional emphasis on its con- trol by farmers is he said. Studies have shown that only two Canada ihi.stlo plants per square yard in a field can re- duce wheat yields by as much as six bushels per acre. The average farmer on the Prair- ies loses at least 55 per acrc from thistles alone. "With harvest about to begin, farmers may neglect summer fallowing at the very time thistle control is most said Mr. McLclland. "It is during the next few weeks that tlic plants replen- ish tho food reserves in their root systems that will be used to carry them through the win- ter. "Until about the middle of July food is drawn from tho roots to produce seed stalks and seed. If the top-growth of the thistles is kept under con- trol for the rest of the growing season, the plants will lie un- able to build up reserves and will enter winter in a weakened condition. Mr. McLelland saicl at least 90 per cent of the thistles on summcrfallow land can be eliminated in one season with intensive cultivation or a com- bination of cultural and chem- ical control. 'To avoid undoing all the re- sults that have been achieved up to the commencement of harvest, thistle growth must be kept down during he said. "Cultural operations must be started again immediately after harvest operations have beer completed and continued until freeze-up." Hotel land may be rezoned A bylaw to rezone the York Hotel property to allow the owners to expand the tiotel fac- ilities should be before city council at its next meeting. Council Monday instructed the city solicitor to draw up the amending bylaw. A similar bylaw was defeated by council last year because the planned expansion conflict- ed with future widening of 13th St. N. The hotel sits on properly not 7oned for hotel use but is al- lowed, since it was there be- fore the zoning bylaw was pass- ed. The zoning bylaw states no additions can be put on a build- Ing which docs not conform to the bylaw. Tim only way the expansion can be allowed is for Ihe prop erty to be rezoned. Parking controls unchanged City council has decided f' cave parking controls on pri ale lots up to the lot owners. Requests have liccn made by he Lethbridge Municipal llos )ital administration and Cenln Village Mall owners for th city regulation and control o heir parking areas. City solicitor John Hammon .old council the city would hav rouble enforcing its parkin >ylaw on private lots. He referred to a lellcr from the provincial highways depart ment which stated the city doe not have the authority to pas bylaws to cover private lots. The only way for the city t regulate the lots would be on lease arrangement wilh the 1 owners, Mr. Hammond said. Council rejected Ilia pproach, concerned that tl: city would not recover the cos' of administration and policin private lots. Council also decided mono received from parking viol, tors at the university should rutes involving for :ight months. Mr. Clark said the public to the formation o such board is "tremendous.1 He said at a seminar last weel alone, about two dozen com >laints were received and those who made the complaints "are all in favor of such an advis ory board."
