It was learned that the coun- ty authorized the installation of three street lights. The work be done by Calgary Power. The county also authorized the lights at the skating rink, this will be done in the near future. Provisions are being made to try and get summer water for families requiring it. The young people would like to have a new ball diamond at the site of the former play- ground instead of at the school ground. It was decided to see if there is a recreation grant available. It is felt that the maintenance work should then be done by Uie young peole themselves. Dogs running at large are creating quite a problem here. They turn over garbage cans, run in packs and bile young- sters. The solution might be the necessity of having all dogs li- censed. Young children on the streets after nine p.m. are causing some concern. A fence is required by the old church, as the snow blows off the playground and blocks the raod just east of the building.
