Alderman V e r a Ferguson wanted lo know if the survey, which was presented lo council in summary form, was in [act the report which was to be encompassing and which ha cost so much money. Deputy Mayor Rex Lilt said live report had cost abm of which Ilia city ha paid He said the surve moslly us wlial we ready know." An accompanying Icltcr froi Low-Cost Units In Housing Plans Lethbridge should be recciv ing from the federa' government for Ihe 72 low-cosl e x p e r i mental housing units planned for the city, Alderman C. W. Chichester said Monday The money would be made available as mortgage funds for semi-detaclred units for per sons in the lower income range Alderm a n Chichester's com menls were made following city council's approval of the sale of a parcel of land to de- veloper Holger Frandsen, parl of which is to be used for 1C low-cost units. Council also approved a res- olution that F. C. Colborne, Al berta minister of municipal af- fairs, authorize a necessary subdivision for the develop- ment at 1413 Lakemount Blvd. An announcement is expect- ed soon from Robert Andras, the federal minister responsible for housing, formally approv- ing the funds for the three low- Free Parking Rules JVeecl Clarification Free parking downtown Sat- urday, which has caused some confusion for local motorists, managed to do the same at Monday's meeting of city coun- cil. The problem arose in connec- tion with the interpretation of recommendations from Ton! Nutting, city manager, and Bill Baker, president of the Leth- bridge Downtown Business- men's Association. Alderman C a m m Barnes, speaking for the businessmen's association, said the group wanted the free parking ex- tended to include two-hour and 12-minute meters, but that the two-hour limit was to be re- tained. Mr. Nutting's recommenda- tion was to extend the scheme to all meters and place no re- strictions on the time a person could park. This, he said, would save the city money as lliere would be no necessity for commis- sionaires to patrol and keep track of the two-hour time limit currently enforced A motion by Aid.

Aid. Ferguson's motion say the mill rate should be kep down in view of "appreciablj higher charges" to city taxpa) ers to offset the cost of the sec ondary sewage treatment fa cilities, which will work a hard ship on those in the lower in come brackets. Also mentioned is the ncct for the city to provide leader ship in controlling wages in an effort to combat inflation ant :o check on the demands of all local tax spending agencies. The motion also says, "in sound business procedure corporation estimates its rev enues and budgets according ly." The motion will be dealt will at a later meeting of council. Council Approves Budget The Oldman River Regional Planning Commission prelimin- ary budget for 1971 was ap- proved by city council Mon- day. The budget, up about from last year, was ap- >roved by a general meeting of he commission Oct. 21.

A number of (he seven rna- ior recommendations, the let- ter said, "seem to te blind or ignorant lo the reality of the Lethbridge situation to which they apply." flic survey throws liltle light on Ihe recreation picture and fails lo identify particular areas of need, the letter said. Also included is an analysis of tlie seven recommendations, with comments from the parks and recreation commission. In it the commission states the first three recommenda- tions of llva survey are already being carried out. These deal with decentralization of recrea- tion facilities, training leaders and giving special attention to youth programs. Item four in the survey sug- gests the commission "deter- mine the reasons for the ap- parent rejection of music and art by the majority of citi- zens." The commission answers that it can hardly be said that is frigid toward mu- sic and art particularly." The remaining three recom- mendations, "with which the commission concurs, deal in general terms with providing more extensive recreation pro- grams and better publicity for them. The recommendations will be reviewed by the commission in a year's time to determine their validity at that lime. Bylaw On Burning Ready Soon A new fire bylaw for the city, wliich will include regulations covering the burning of gar- bage, should be ready in two to 'our weeks- Tom Nutting, city manager, ji reply to an inquiry from Vera Ferguson, tok city council staff meetings hac been held recently to work on .he bylaw and prepare it for jresentatiou as soon as pos- ible. Mr. Nutting said one of the major problems encountered at :he meetings was to balance he advantages gained from banning Use burning of refuse .gainst the increased costs of ;arbage disposal. A complicating factor, he said, was the enforcement of regulations for commercial in- cinerators. These, he said, were licensed iy the province and there may be instances where the regula- ions were not always strictly enforced.

Mr. Clark succeeds Dick Gruenwald, a Lethbridge sepa- rate school trustee, who has held the post the past two years. Mr. Clark, unopposed for his new position, said his primary goal for the ASTA in the coming year will be to build it into an organization as strong as the Alberta Teachers' Asso- ciation. "We need an assocition peo- ple will look up to and that both the ATA and the provin- cial department of education will look to for he said in an interview. A strong staff in all associa- jon departments, "working to- gether in close co-operation" will be needed to achieve his goal, Mr. Clark said. He said one problem needing careful consideration this year will be ironing out different impressions rural, urban and separate school districts have about who is getting the most benefits from various ASTA and departmental education programs. "Really 1 don't think Ihore are many differences there, but because of different situations each group has some things the others can't have and some some disadvantages others don't he said. Other important discussion points, he said, will he joint use of schools for school and com- imunity activities, especially in i rural areas which don't (as Lethbridge does) have special agreements; teacher contract bargaining positions and work- ing conditions and related sub- jects.
