After a brief debate on the merits of aldermen as actors, council voted 4-2 to turn down a request by CJOC-TV to Him regular council meetings. "It would inhibit members of said Aid. Vcra Fer- guson.

Another step taken toward new Sportsplex A contract with Phillips, Barratt, Hillier, Jones and Partnes to build t'.ie .Sportsplex and other Canada Winter Games facilities was given city council approval Monday. The approval authorizes bor- rowing of SI-'J million by the city over three years to pay ils estimated share of the arena's cost, but does not take into account participation by Lelhbridge Community College. Council went into a clos- ed session after approval of the contract with the Vancouver consulting firm, to discuss the present slate of negotiations with the college. Aid. Vaughan Hembroff, who is on the Sportsplex Commit- tee, said the closed session was called not because of any con- cern that feathers would be ruf- fled, but to unravel the "com- munications schmozzle and get things clear for a change." He said a meeting was to be held today with college of- ficials. Phillips, Ban-alt, Hillier, Jones, and Partners designed Ihe Vancouver Colliseum. Included in the estimated costs are for the for a speed- skating oval, for hand- ball courts, and for sprinkler system which will be necessary in the Sportsplex if it is lo be used for trade fairs. The smaller cost items are options that can be considered when tendered, Aid. Hembroff indicated.
