Petition Date Extended On Sunday Sports Bylaw The deadline for petitions against a bylaw that would al- low increased Sunday sports and entertainment in Leth- bridge will be extended, likely to July 23. City council last night decided on the extension on the advice of John Hammond, city solicitor. He recommended the delay to avoid any potential controversy over the correct interpretation of the public notice on the dead- line for petitions. The question of the interpre- tation of the notice stemmed from a letter from, lawyer Briant Stringam, who said he represented people planning to submit a petition. According to Mr. Stringam's letter the notice cannot be inter- preted to mean that opposition must be filed on or before July 9 and objection to the passing of the bylaw at this time was made on that basis. July 9 was intended by coun- cil as the deadline and third and final reading of the bylaw was to have been given last night. If a petition is received be- fore the new deadline it could mean the bylaw would go to a :ilFF BLACK, R.D.T., C.D.M. HACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BIDO. Open Saturday!

Rex Little concurred but felt that for council to be en- tirely on "the up and up" it city solicitor. Aid. Hembroff cast the only dissenting vote on the motion approving the deadline exten- sion. Housing Zoning Okayed City council last night gave 1 application to the Municipal third and final reading to an amendment to the zoning bylaw to allow a multi-family devel- opment just east of the College Shopping Mall. Mount Royal Estate Ltd. plans a condominium development in the area. Their Planning Commission May 28 was tabled and they were ad- vised, to apply for re-zoning of the three-acre parcel of land, which was zoned for single fam- ily units. Council also gave first read- ing to an amendment increas- ing the density standards in commercial (highway) zonef. The amendment was designed specifically to allow construc- tion of a 10 storey motor hotel on Mayor Magrath Drive. It also opens the way for other high-rise commercial develop- ment along the Drive. 'Low-Cosf Land Priced The City of Lethbridge in- tends to make land available at reduced rates to developers of low-cost ownership housing. City council last night voted to sell some serviced land to developers at per front foot for row land, plus per front foot for services. Sales will be conditional on the builder's program being approved by Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation. The original motion asking for the lower land price was pre- sented by Alderman C. W. Chi- chester at the last meeting of council but was delayed until the city solicitor could report on legal safeguards preventing possible land speculation. The .city solicitor's report in- dicated adequate provisions have been made by CMHA, the Alberta Housing Corporation, and the city, to prevent specula- tion in low-cost housing lands. Federal and provincial ap- proval for the housing scheme has been obtained. The next step is to have specific pro- programs by local builders approved so they will qualify for the mortgage money that will be provided at an interest rate of 5% per cent.

The money would pay the ficer's salary, if he were hire from September until the en of the year. Aid. Ferguson opposed th expenditure on the grounds tha the hiring of the research off cer would be "an extension c the fast growing city hal bureaucracy." Aid. Ferguson questioned th need for the officer, noting tha both Calgary and Edmonton n longer felt the need for such CALGARY (Special) Where was Lethbridge Monday morning? More than people from many parts of the world saw the 1970 edition of the Calgary Stampede parade here Monday. The questions on the minds of many, particularly those from southern Alberta: where was Lethbridge? They saw floats from Medicine Hat, Fort Macleod, Wetaskiwin, Vauxhall, Red Deer, Grande Prairie, and of course Edmonton. There were scores of others. But, not a word anywhere about Lethbridge except on the side of one stage coach "House of Lethbridge." Council Briefs Alderman Rex Little pre- sented a notice of motion that the city manager, the finance director and the parks and recreation superintendent report on the feasibility of a hard- shell being built, probably in lenderson Lake Park. The bandshell would be used For concerts, lectures and plays. Council will take no action on a survey on the need for a day care centre in the city un- il it hears from the provincial jovernment. Some word from lay Speaker, the minister of ocial development, is expect- ed in the next few days. Mayor Andy Anderson said it was his understanding the survey wil involve no cost to the city.

She also said provincial ser- vices were available that fill the same research needs that could be provided by tha offi- cer. Aid. Rex Little suggested the matter be referred to the fi- nance committee, which could ascertain in detail the need for such a person. Another motion by Aid. Fer- guson, this one relating to the hospitality extended by the city to visiting groups awl dignitar- ies, was referred to the budget committee for study and recom- mendation. The motion set out specific guidelines on the amount of money that could be allocated for such things as luncheons and banquets. Aid. Ferguson said the guide- lines would enable the city manager to process submis- sions for funds and save coun- cil from going through the 'same repetitious indecision" with each request. It would aSo, sne said, be an asset to the organizations re- questing money to know how much they might expect. Alderman Rex Little and Joe Baiia both said they felt Hie proposed guidelines would open the way to increased expendi- tures for hospitality. The rea- soning was that once specific amounts are set out as city policy, groups will come to ex- pect that amount, whereas un- der present policy they might not even bother to apply for assistance.
