(HNS) It was noted at a meeting recent- ly of council of the District of Sparwood that Lenrice Engi- neering still had not signed its shopping centre agreement. Acting Mayor Earl Tabor said Len Rice stated he had not got the final draft agree- ment and that he did not agree with three items of the agree- ment which the lawyers had put in since his meeting with council. THREE PER CENT Council could not see why Lenrice had not got the final draft but went on to deal with the items Lenrice disagreed with. The items in question were that of a penalty clause of a day for each day after the deadline that the complex was not completed; the mini- mum per year which the dis- trict should receive if his total gross revenue was not that high. The district gets three per cent of total gross revenue ac- cording to the agreement. Nor did he agree with putting up a performance bond. Council agreed to drop the penalty clause and the minimum as they had not been discussed at their meeting with Lenrice.

Norman Dalil. who farms about eight miles southeast of Claresholm, says his fruit and shade trees were damaged two weeks ago by aerial spraying against weeds and his rapeseed crop was hit hard. "It's so hard to get trees to grow, one has to try and stop them or there won't be any trees left. They got a little too close, I guess there's more chance of drift with aerial Mr. Dahl said in an interview after the meeting. Council will write a letter to the Alberta Association of Mu- nicipal Districts to see what can be done. The spray companies are expected to pay for damage but trees that die are hard to replace. Council passed a motion to supply Neguvon and Roulene at the cost price of per can to ranchers for use in warble fly control. Tom B1 u n d e n councillor from Fort Macleod, asked if tests were made for residue in meat after the chemical was applied. Mr. Blunden added: "I had some fish tested the other day and there were traces of three different poisons."

If Lenrice did not wish to agree with these terms council felt Lenrice should be let go and another shopping centre looked into. A last request was received from Woodspar Plaza to come into Sparwood. The letter gave council 30 days to accept or refuse their offer and council moved to hold their offer in abeyance till the next council meeting when results of the Lenrice plans should be known. Council also moved that Len- rice's option of first right of refusal on the 10 lots behind the shopping centre be re- scinded in view of the fact the firm is not using all the land it already has bought.
