Pollution Inquiry j. Answered By City j E. A. Lawrence, engineering director for the city, has re- plied to an inquiry from Pollu- tion Control Southern Alberta concerning the city's second- ary sewage treatment plant. In the letter, the group asks what controls a proposed bylaw on sewage tax will have. Mr. Lawrence's reply notes that the present bylaw does not restrict the strength of sewage or the concentration of grease, but it does impose a surcharge for chart suspended solids in excess of 750 parts per million and grease in excess of 300 parts- per-million. When the new plant is in op- eration tests will be run to Evaluate the strength of efflu- ent from industrial plants.

Industrial plants, Mr. Law- rence says, may find that their sewage bill is very high and may wish to install their own pretreatment facilities. But the :ity is not, he said, adamant in its stand that such facilities be installed. By HERB JOHNSON1 Herald City Hall Ilqioi In- City council Monday night decided to proceed with a re- zoning application from Mount Royal Estate Ltd. The company has asked that a parcel of land east of the College Mall shopping centre be zoned for multi-family use, to accommodate a planned con- dominium development. Planning Director Erwin Ad- derley told council that an over-all plan for the area has been prepared by his depart- ment and should be ready in time for the next council meet- ing. He said the Mount Royal re-zoning would not conflict, as far as he could tell, with new plans for that area. Plans for the condominium project call for a three stage, development, startin_ with 16 units costing about Council also approved an ap- plication by Moore Business Forms Ltd. for an option to purchase 20 acres of land in the new industrial park in north Lethbridge. The com- pany intends to build a busi- ness forms manufacturing plant, provided a grant can be obtained under the regional de- velopment incentives act. Conditions of the sale would be that the million plant would be built within one year of the company's exercising its option. Final decision to go ahead depends on support tra- der the federal government's area incentives program. Council also approved the ne- cessary authorization to pro- ceed with re-zoning of the land the city has acquired in the in- dustrial park the old pri- soner of war camp. A recommendation from the land sales committee that the city purchase the Central School site was lifted from the table and referred back to the land sales committep in the CITY SOLICITOR Taking over from Fred Prit- charrt as city solicitor for Leth- briilge is John A.

Aid. A. W. Chichester said .hat the matter could well he :iled because there was no im- mediate prospect of a buyer for the properly. Aid. Hembroff felt the city should buy the land because if the city doesn't buy it the school board may sell it to anyone. Also dealt with was the de- velopment control bylaw for the city's west side. Given third and final reading, the by- law provides for orderly devel- opment of lau'd 'west of tho river. A meeting of city council and civic administrators has been scheduled for this after- noon to discuss development on Mayor Magrath Drive. The decision to hold the meeting came during discus- sion of reports prepared by the director of planning and other administrators on a proposed motel development on Mayor Magrath Drive. The applica- tion, from Beton Engineering Ltd., requested council to con- sider changing the density standards of the by-law to allow their development. A report prepared by Erwin Adderley, the director of plan- ning, notes that most of the commercial buildings along the Drive are only two storeys liigh. Taller developments, such as the proposed motel (10 storeys) would change the character of the residential neighborhood and intrude upon the privacy of residents. Also pointed out is the fact that re-zoning of this type can set a precedent and. open the door for further undesirable de- velopment. While planning should be flexible, the report says, effective planning cannot be done spasmodically; fre- quent amendments to the by- law will only render planning meaningless. Alderman Rex Little said Youth Hurt In Accident A 16-year-old L e t h bridge youth, Randall Powell Foggin of 953 9 St. S., is in satisfactory condition in Lethbridge Muni- cipal Hospital with a fractured wrist and abrasious to the right knee following a motorcycle ac- cident Monday.

Seminar On Auto Theft An auto theft seminar, open to all municipal policemen, will be held June 5 from 9 a.m. until p.m. in the Leth- bridge city police station. The seminar will be directed by the RCMP theft squad from Edmonton. Grain Quota The Canadian wheat board has announced a two bushel quota, effective immediately, at Etzakom and Iron Springs. Approved A gambling' casino may be part of this year's Lethbridge and District Exhibition. City council last night went on record as having no objec- tions to the venture, which would include slot machines. Permission for the casino, which would be located on the mezzanine floor of the exhibi- tion pavilion, was requested from the city police depart- ment by the exhibition associa- tion. Endorsation by council of the approval given previously by the board of police commis- sioners clears the way for the casino, provided adequate rales for control of the games can be formulated. It was the question of rules and regulations that sparked one of the few debates at last night's meeting. Aid. C. W. Chichester said he felt the rules should he worked out by the police department GAS JOCKEYS Seven girls experienced as j gas jockeys are available for summer jobs through the Can- ada Manpower Centre student placement division in Leth- bridge. To Review Golf Lease City Manager Tom Ferguson has been instructed by council to initiate a review of the lease held by the Henderson Lake Golf Club. The move was the result of a request by Aid. Jim Anderson, who suggested that the condi- tions of the lease had been broken. R. AKROYD PLUMBING-HEATING GASFITTING LTD. 2634 21st Ave. S.

Out- side the council chamber he stated that he felt it was coun- cil's responsibility to set the niles and delegating the job to the police department would set a precedent. Aid. Jim Anderson said it was important to have ap- proval immediately if the pro- ject were to be ready in time. He also noted that legislation permitting the casinos is fairly recent and rules would have to be worked out and revised as the project progresses. that while the report on this particular project was appre- ciated, there was a need for discussion on development of Mayor Magrath Drive as a whole, rather than on just this motel project. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff said there is also a need for a pub- lic meeting on the subject and for clarification of the status of council's discussion of long range planning. Tile Beton application was filed, pending the outcome of this afternoon's meeting. CLIFF BLACK, R.D.T., C.D.M. JBLACK DENTAL IAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.
