(STATUTORY AND CIVIC HOLIDAYS EXEMPT) INSPECTION AND DEVELOPMENT DEPT. All city hall administrative and support staff should be housed in one central location, city council will be told Mon- day. In a submission to be made to council's special meeting Monday evening City Manager Tom Nutting says in his esti- mation it is not practical to consider construction of facilit- ies separate from the existing city hall because of "the posi- tive efforts made in team ap- proach to administration and the involvement of the adminis- tration with the political arm of the community in such func- tions as the Municipal Commission, land sales and the like." Mr. Nuttirig recommends es- tablishing an administration- councri committee with a 000 budget to look at alterna- tives for city hall expansion. Since the provincial govern- ment has indicated it does not want to sell the law courts building, the feasibility of ex- panding tlie existing city hall to accommodate 10 year pro- jections or of constructing an entirely new city hall should be evaluated, he says.
