Sewage meet with, cabinet s Lelhbridge Mayor Andy An- derson said Thursday a meet ing with the provincial cabinet will be held in January, though ho definite date had jet been set. Mayor Anderson, just re- turned from a trip to Edmon- ton, said it had not been ar ranged with Premier Harry Strom -whether the meeting to discuss secondary sewage fi- nancing would be with the cabi net or a cabinet committee. The delegation from the city will include representatives from city council, industry and perhaps a private citizen. Mayor Anderson reiterated his concern that ordinary citizens be represented in person or tlirough briefs. A meeting had also been held, he said, with Al Stubbs, Alberta regional director of the department of regional econo- mic expansion, concerning an infrastructure grant to help pay the cost of the sewage facilities. Mr. Stubbs indicated a grant might be forthcoming if the city could show that new indus- try locating in Lethbridge under the regional development incen- tives program had created un- usual demands on the city's sewage facilities. No decision had yet besn reached, the mayor said, on whether to apply for a grant; the meeting had been held only to gather information that could be passed to the council in- dustry committee that is pre- paring a brief to the cabinet. r v'- Appeal deadline extended The Lethbridge United Ap- peal campaign, currently about short of its ob- jective, is setting Nov. 30 as a new deadline for return of donations.

The .campaign started Sept. 14 and so far is following the pattern of the 1969 event. Last year the United Appeal fell short of its objective, but Mr. Cox said "we're doing pretty well this year."

Assistance over budget The social service assistance portion of 'the city's welfare budget, over-expended in July, is now over the allotment for 1970. Of this figure, 20 per cent or about is the amount paid by the city; the rest is the responsibility of the province. The welfare budget as a whole, however, is still within the estimated figure. This is because alloted for cap- ital and operating costs for a proposed day care centre has not been spent The centre ran Into opposi- tion this summer and has been shelved pending the of z survey, to be done by the pro- vincial government to assess the need for such facilities. The city's social service de- partment went over the budget in July when there was ah un- usually large number of people receiving assistance. The number of welfare recip- ients ordinarily declines in the summer, but this year cities all across Canada reported high figures ami budget prob- lems. A total of 219 persons re- ceived assistance through the city's department, the high- est number so far this year. There has been a steady de- cline since then, with the Oc- iolxir figiu'c standing at 113. It's expected the number will rise again this month with the onslaught of colder weather.
