Parking and traffic hot council items By RICHARD BURKE Staff Writer Perking meters nuy be e! initiated in tbe downtown are in the not-too-distant future. Under considerable pressure from the general public and th Downtown Businessmen's Asso- ciation, city council Monday in structed the city manager t form a committee consisting o administration members an representatives of the DBA t study the possibility of bavin the meters removed. At the same time, council de- cided to rescind a previous re- solution tb Increase the mete rates, and re-established th existing rates. Until the committe has stu died the parking situation and made its recommendations, th 12-minute penny meter will re- main, as will the five-cent per hour rate. Bill Baker, president of the DBA, appealed to council to re- consider its decision on raisin, meter rates on tbe basis tha "the downtown is suffering enough." He said the meters were pu in for turning over traffic, no for revenue purposes, and tha ibe existing system is adequate 'or accomplishing the turn over. Alderman Vaughan Hembroff said OK proposed increase in rates would create a better urn-over by "driving staff into he parking lots where they be- ong." Mr. Baker countered that the extra cost will drive more peo- )le out to the shopping centres. Two letters submitted to con- til from rural residents south f the city attested to that statement. AM. Hembroff argued that 'instead of screaming bloody murder after tbe fact, you (the >BA) should come to us and ell us what is needed." Aid. Vera Ferguson said the nuisance .value of the meters should be enough to have them eliminated. She suggested the car tires be chalked, the license numbers recorded and a fine be hand- ed out after one hour of park- rig. Each additional hour viola- tion should be met with a S fine, she added. No action was taken on her suggestion. City Manager Tom Nutting defended UK administration's proposed rate increase by minting to a comparative study of parking rates in other west em Canadian cities. He said the study shows the recommended increase, to five cents per half hour and 10 per isn't out of order. In Calgary, Edmonton, Sask- atoon and Regina, for example, the rates are all above 10 cents per hour and go as high as 25 cents per hour, he said. The resolution passed by council includes the suggestion that all public parking lots be rented out by the month.

The resoltuion was passed by a 6-2 margin with Mayor Andy Anderson and Aid. Bill Kergan opposed. Aid. Chick Chichester was ab- sent from the meeting. Community service may get A expenditure for the community services de- partment was given prelimin- ary approval by council Mon- day but further consideration will be necessary before the entire 1972 budget receives official sanction. That budget is estimated at with a 70-mill tax levy. No significant cuts have been suggested by council yet to nullify the proposed two-mill ncrease. Under the preventive social services section of the com- munity services department, a requisition was ap- proved for programs in general. Community services director Bob Bartlett told council ihc goals of specific projects under the program will be presented before Feb. 15 on an individual basis. Council will then have the re- sponsibility of approving or re- jecting the projects. City Manager Tom Nutting said the directors of such pro- vice, home makers service, Head Start, Golden Mile Drop- in Centre, the youth hostel and Meals on Wheels, have been in- formed of the philosophy that each is an "independently vi- able program and not a whim of the city." He stressed, however, the city has an obligation until March 30, and none are la jeopardy at least until that time. Councjl also requested that a part of the capital ex- penditure under the commun- ity services department go to- ward building and furnishing a lounge in city hall. The city manager was also directed to bring a report bick to council concerning the pos- sible construction of new coun- cil chambers. The budget discussions will resume next Monday.

City Manager Tom Nutting said he envisions two holding garbage pick-up fran- chises in the city in competi- tion with one another. The city would set the stan- dards on collection, Mr. Nutting said. Burning of garbage was also considered by council. A mo- tion to ban burning in all com- mercial and residential areas was defeated by a 5 to 3 mar- gin. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff said such a move would be poli- tically unpopular "but you have to start somewhere to im- prove the quality of life." Aid. Steve Kotch included in "ban-burning" motion that the possibility of the city set- ting up a recycling program be investigated. A majority of council was op- posed to both suggestions. End road?
