Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta J4 TOT UTHMIDSI HWALD Ivmirf, Wmmiy M, Another delay tor city's sewage bylaw Several developments related to secondary sewage treaJroeci facilities came up at city coun- cil Monday, but nothing was resolved. Third and final reading of the city's sewerage service charge bylaw was again de- layed. Final approval was post- poned in January to give inter- ested parties a chance to sug- gest changes and Mayor Andy Anderson reported that local industries had presented a brief late Monday afternoon. City Manager Tom Nutting described the brief as contain- ing "major financial changes" although no details were given. He said the administration has presented its point view and I any further discussions on the I Ibvlaw would be a matter for council to decide with the rep- resentatives of industry. Members of council had not had a chance to see the brief and no discussion was held. The bylaw contains a ?2 ai month charge for domestic j users and a 13 cents per 100' cubic feet charge for commer- cial and industrial users. Indus- try would also be faced with a surcharge for quantity and quality ol effluent. Additional revenue would be raised through taxes. Another development related to financing of the sewage treatment {acuities, something which has been a problem since casts escalated to million last year. The city still has not completed [inflating arrangements for Mayor Anderson read a let- ter from H. R. Pudwell, execu- tive assistant to Agriculture Minister Bud Olson, stating that Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation would al- most certainly approve a million loan to the city if the request were supported by the provincial government. Such a loan would carry a ffi per cent forgiveness clause and would be the most attractive method for financing the needed funds Another possibility would be one-year, low-cost loan. Mr. ulting suggested some of the oney might be obtained in this way from the federal gov- Mayor Anderson is scheduled travel to Edmonton this on other business and a meeting may be held then with IB provincial treasurer to pur- the matter of provincial ap- proval for such a loan or loans. Consulting engineering fees or construction of the second- ary sewage facilities came in Development okayed Despite opposition from De-! puty Mayor Rex Little on the use of names for streets, city council Monday approved a new street name and house numbering system for the city's west side. Included in the resolution was approval of a plan ai sub- division for Phase 1 of west side development a 110-acre parcel just west of the univer- sity site. Aid. Little indicated he had no desire to hold back approval of the subdivision plan and threatened to vote against it, but relented in the end to make the approval unanimous. Aid. Little has spoken out vocifer- ously in the past regarding his opposition to using names for streets, particularly as it ap- plies to the Lakeview area. The new system will actually use both street names and numbers, although the num- bers will relate only to the houses. An eight-digit number will indicate the location of each house in much the same way it does now under the grid system used in most of the city. The streets, however, will not follow the grid pattern. Street names are intended, as an aid in following the curved streets and the crescents ad- joining them. Erwin Adderley, executive director of the Oldman Kiver Regional Planning Commis- sion, in presenting the subdi vision plan to council said i was basically the same as the one approved ia principle las year. The sub-division is to be caliec Varsity Village. Streets will have university names such a Queen's, Acadia, Trinity, Carle- ton and McGill. In reply to a question from Firecrackers included in fire bylaw A section In the city's new fire bylaw on fireworks am firecrackers will be includet when the bylaw is submittet for approval. City council Monday votec not to delete the section, a had been moved by Alderma Joe Balla, and it will be dis cussed along with the othe parts of the inch-thick bylaw. Aid. Balla, who has spoke out in the past on over-regu lating people's lives, said council was going to take awa fireworks they might just a well take away jack-knives an matches, which were just as dangerous. Aid. Vera Ferguson said chil dren could find less dangerou noisemakers. Aid. Rex Lift cpoke in favor of banning fir works as a fire preventio measure. Council reduction seen for this fall Lethbridge citizens may be voting for a seven member city council next fall. Council Monday voted al- most unanimously to amend te bylaw to reduce its num- lers to seven from the present nine. Mayor Andy Anderson arned that the necessary amendment would have to be >repared and approved at least 0 days before the election in October if it is to take effect n time for the election. Only Alderman Camm Barnes opposed the motion by Aid. Jim Anderson. He said it would be "foolish" to reduce le size of council at a time then the city was expanding and there was an increasing need for members to serve on ommittees. Aid. Anderson's answer was aat the work load on commit- ees had not Deemed to drop when council was increased to j nine members and he assumed hat the reverse might also be rue. In listing reasons for his mo- ion, Aid. Anderson empha- sized the efficiency of the civic Wagoneer dennan Jim Anderson, Mr. dderley said registration of ie plan would probably take "om four to six months. He Iso agreed with Mayor Andy nderson that it could be ac- mplished much sooner if pro- vincial officials were nude aware of the necessity for speed. Plans call for initial de- velopment in the subdivision to coincide with the opening of the university's new campus hi the fall. administration. He said the aark. The land is the proposed iite of a distillery. Negotia- ions for a federal grant for he project are still under way. Finance Director Allister Findlay was appointed the city's voting representative at te annual meeting of the Al- jerta Municipal Financing Cor- poration in Edmonton April 5. aty Manager Tom Nutting or his representative will at- tend the inaugural meeting of the committee on municipal and regional information man- agement to be held in Montreal March 25-27. The committee is being organized by the Cana- dian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities. It will deal with data processing and infon tion management. Council approved a resolu- tion removing Mr. Nutting from the Municipal Planning Commission. The commission is made up of both elected rep- resentatives and administra- tive personnel. Specifications for a sanitary sewer trunk project in north-east Lethbridge were ap- proved.

Also approved was a trans- er of from one account o another to cover an over- expenditure last year on the project that installed twin water pipelines across the river to the west side. Council was told the lines had had to extended an extra 100 feet and no fault had yet been es- ablished for the mistake. Referred to the finance com- mittee for further considera- ion were proposed changes in ie city administration. The major changes would establish a new directorate, that of com- munity services, to oversee jarks and recreation, cultural development and other areas, and the hiring of a staff as- sistant to the city manager. The latter would be an internal auditor, at a salary of about a year. First and second readings were given to a bylaw that would prohibit vehicles from passing city buses on the right, unless they were signalling a left turn. The bylaw is intended to prevent accidents when buses are forced, because of narrow streets, to turn right from the centre lane.
