The location, at 9th St. and 4th Ave. S. just north of city hall, has already been accept- ed by the library board. Coun- cil had delayed ratifying the board's acceptance pending re- ports from City Manager Tom Nutting and city directors. A upper limit for a new library was advocated by Mayor Andy Anderson, who said the figure had been found acceptable by the library board. Mayor Anderson said there had to be a limit in view of rising costs. City Manager Tom Nutting said there was some concern about getting borrowing proved from the Local ap- Au- tliorilies Boaro. The city had a million carry-over this year in debenture borrowings through the Alberta Municipal Financing Corporation. The city could borrow the ne- cessary money year, he said, but if the project went over the estimate when plans were finalized next year the city would have to borrow the extra money on the open mar- ket. He added that the would fit in with a report on capital projects he would bring to council Aug. 9. The figure would include site improvements and fixtures, in addition to the for the building itself. Pegging the land value at puts the total cost at the figure contained in the city's capital budget for the library. Council briefs First reading was given two bylaws related to the Holi day Inn project on Mayor Ma grath Drive by city counci Friday. .One Would rezone a residen tial property for eommercia use; the other would provide for closing a lane near the property. Both are related to providing parking for the new hotel. Mayor Andy Anderson sug- gested discussion on both by- laws could be postponed until second reading, at which tune there would be a public hear- ing. Alderman Vera Ferguson, who said she might not be able to attend that meeting, was allowed to stale her views. She said council should not even be considering either bylaw amendment. MOVING? CALL AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES To do so was a breach of faith with the residents 'of Glendale who had opposed the original hotel plan and who had been assured there would be no further encroachment into the residential district, she said. other business, council gave second and third readings to a borrowing bylaw for financing of the new com- munity ice facility at Hender- son Lake. Site preparation work on the project started Thursday. It is to be ready for use this fall. Jim Anderson present- ed, a notice of motion that the city manager have prepared a brief to the recently-appointed Alberta royal commission on provincial-municipal financing. The city manager would be empowered to spend up to 000 on the brief to outline the city's financial problems. also passed a res- olution asking the city man- ager to report on charges that a movie firm was unable to re- ceive assistance from the Travel and Convention Bureau of Southern Alberta. ORANGES IN LETHBRIDGE? Yes, there is ot least one orange free in Lethbridge and it even produces oranges. The tree is owned by Art Dietrich of 314 27th St. S. and as can be seen above the oranges are bigger than a baseball. Dietrich said all oranges never get really orange when they are ripe unless they are injected with a special vitamin, or a spcial vitamin fertilizer is used. Oh yes, the orange pictured above was ripe and green in color, but it sure tasted good. see us for fast, expert PHOTO Anglo Distributors Stereo S Photographic Centre 419 5th Street South Phone 328-6922 West development policy is slowly being evolved City council Friday talked west side development policy and while the only resolution was couched in general there was agreement thai both council and administration had a clearer idea where the city was headed.

PHONE 328-6661 resolution giving approval in principle to key points in a re- port by City Manager Tom Nutting. None of the proposals such as visiting existing mode communities to gather ideas or forming a crown corporation to oversee development, were specifically singled out given final approval. One summation of what hat been accomplished came from Erwin Adderley, executive di- rector of the Oldman River Re- gional Planning Commission. Mr. Adderley said progress had been made in two areas- council had demonstrated that it was still committed to the concept of a "community oi quality" on the west side and there was agreement that the zoning bylaw was not neces- sarily the best tool for achiev- ing control over development. Control was a major concern throughout the discussion. City I Manager Tom Nutting said there was some fear that the traditional controls subdivi- sion design and the 7Joning by- law would give rise to prob- lems in developing and main- taining a model community. Mr. Adderley said that past experience had shown that economic pressures could re- sult in developments inconsis- tent with the zoning bylaw. If a developer is involved in the initial stages of planning and has a vested interest in carrying through that plan, there is a much better chance of the original design adhered to, he said. There were different ideas brought out on whether all of Phase One development should be given to one firm. Mr. Nut- ting said if council went this route there would probably be no problems in finding some- one to assume the task. There were already developers who had indicated they could take on all of Phase One, he said. Deputy Mayor Little warned that if only one developer were involved he would ha under the gun to a profit and could bo forced into modifying the original plans in order to make money. He said it was better to diversify and allow several smaller projects. Timing could be a factor in council's policy-making. Mayor Andy Anderson said if a deci- sion were not reached before the October election, the new council would have to begin over again. Council's task, whether or not it is accomplished by Oc- tober, is to decide on. the type of model community it wants and the means whereby it can be built. Council approved in prin- ciple the idea of visiting some model communities to help for- mulate their concept of what the west side should be, but there was no specific plan set' up to accomplish this. Only the basic pros and cons were brought up and discussed. One of the more popular ideas for implementation ol west side development was crown corporation. Suggested by Mr. Nutting in bis report, the proposed cor- poration would have directors appointed on a five-year basis ay the city, with strict terms of reference for its operation and authority to hire needed personnel.

HUGH OLSON LUMBING HEATING SERVICE Phone 327-7689 Views souht City closing bylaw to be By HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer The wheels were set in mo- Lion Friday by city council to change Lethbridge's closing sylaw regulating store hours. Faced with pressure from some local merchants the arger stores and shopping centres to either enforce the bylaw or throw it out, counti voted to call for the holding o jubh'c hearings with a view to revising the bylaw. At the same time it acceptec a request from the Board o Police Commissioners that the police not be asked to rigidly enforce the present bylaw. Mayor Andy Anderson saic council would be accepting submissions on the matter anc t was expected that interestec parties would prepare pre- sentations to council. Council Monday had passed resolution requesting the 3oard of Police Commission- ers to direct the police depart- ment to enforce the bylaw. The policy for some time has been a bring action against offend- rs only when a formal com- ilaint has been lodged. The board's reply was that rigid enforcement was not in be best interest of the police orce. Alderman Jim Anderson, a council representative on the loard, said police-initiated en- orcement would have to be 'across me to all businesses breaking the by- aw, of which there were a oodly number. He added that the bylaw was learly in the interests of a articular group (local mer- iants) and since it was for heir benefit they should take h e responsibility for its en- orcement. Rigid police enforcement could be done, he said, but at ped NOW OPEN LETHBRIDGE POOCH AND POODLE PARLOR Bathing Clipping Grooming REASONABLE RATES!

No one spoke up in favor of Grant fund alternative proposed Alderman V a u g h a n Hem- broff Friday asked city coun- cil to give consideration at its next meeting to a revised res- olution on grants to cultural and charitable organizations. His original motion had said only that such grants be re- fused by council after Aug. 1 this year. Aid. Hembroff said that while his basic thinking had not changed, he felt it was ne- cessary to provide some rea- sons for his resolution and out- line alternatives. The resolution states that grants in the past have come out of general revenue and are therefore charged to the real property tax payer an un- fair burden in view of the in- creasing demands such grants are making. An alternative approach is for the city to encourage the provincial and federal govern- ments to establish funds out of which grants niay be made. A commission of interested citi- zens would be formed to ad- minister the fund. getting rid of the bylaw. Dep- uty Mayor Rex Little suggest- ed the result would probably be a hodge-podge of different hours, to the confusion of shoppers, especially those from sur- rounding towns. Alderman Vera Ferguson, who proposed the resolution to hold hearings, noted that so far council had heard only from those merchants who were unhappy with the present bylaw. Council's position now is that any changes should come pri- marily from the merchants themselves. Just what consen- sus will be reached among them remains to be seen. The larger stores last Christ- mas spearheaded a drive for more night shopping in Decem- ber. They are now on record as favoring Wednesday afternoon opening and Christmas shop- ping to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday Dec. 10 through Dec. 23 on an annual basis. Council was told Monday these stores had not been able to come to an agreement on these hours with smaller stores.
