As long 'as the wind is less than 20 m.p.h. the work can be dene. There have been 53 such days since Jan 1, on a 24 hour average. However, it is normally windier during the daylight hours than it is at night and the U of L is located in one of the windiest areas of the city.

The federal government has allotted million over a 10- year period for the transfer of the project to the users. This will be used to pay for the an- nual water rates.

It has been heavily subsidized for 20 years and now a large grant is being provided to take it off the federal government's he said. "Surely that money could have been spent more wisely." Mr. Thiessen said if (he gov- ernment would give the Lctrc- bridge Coaldale area the million, SMRID would be happy. "The government would be able to forget about mainlen- tenance and he said.

A previous council decision to hire 25 "highly qualified per- sons" to conduct another pop- ulation survey remains on (he books, although the time of the speciaE census is undeter- mined.

The letters were in general opposition to the expenditure of public funds to pay for a sec- ond census. Aid. Ferguson said City Man- ager Tom Nutting's suggestion that the January census figures were "impossible to accept" is "a real slap on the wrist of 125 women who went out in the coSd" to galher census forms. She said council and admin- istrative action in the matter has caused "real harm in pub- lic relations." Mr. Nutting said there were no accusations against Individ uals. One of the main reasons for requesting another census was to determine the actual growth of the city in light of the pend- ing major development in West Lethbrkige. If the January figures are correct, Aid. Van gh Eicmbroff said, "we are really in bad shape regarding West Lethbridge."
