After Vk hours of discussion it was decided to set up the steering committee to deter- mine what is required. The mental health planning council is to appoint the committee which is to act as a sub-com- mittee of the council. Elaine Thacker, a member of the council, was appointed to the sub committee. Other members to be appointed wi include youths, users, the medical profession and other resource people as required. The meeting generally agreed a major problem is educating adults and youths about the use and misuse of One man in his early 20s died of drug abuse in the city last year. The meeting was told there is a definite drug problem in Lethbridge and an increasing number of persons are being treated for drug complications. They start on one thing, go through the soft drugs and wind up on hard drugs. Heroin has been illegally used in Leth- bridge at an increasing rate for a year now. "To deny there is a drug problem in Lethbridge is liiding your head in the the meeting was told.

In 167 days the drug informa- tion arid crisis centre in Cal- gary answered almost IB- quests for information and help. People in Lethbridge are somewhat lost about where to get information on the subject. Others are nervous about con- tacting authorities, so it was suggested a neutral centre, which would respect con- fidences, might bridge the gap. The steering committee is to investigate the needs and make recommendations to the coun- cil and community regarding possible solutions. Council talks 90 mini about high-rise hotel Jiy HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter City council Tuesday spent 1V2 hours discussing a hotel in Shoppers' World and then voted to shelve the matter until Mon- day. More than one alderman voiced his approval when Ald- erman Camm Barnes summed up his opinion of the perform- ance with "I'm wondering what we're doing diddly daddling around." Aid. Barnes said he was dis- gusted with council a bunch of business and profes- sional men standing around looking up at the sky waiting for something to happen." The situation leading up to Aid. Barnes' comments began when Aid. Vera Ferguson ques- tioned the terms of reference of the special meeting, called to discuss a prised hotel in Shoppers' World' couiplex." The agenda iiateiS the meet- ing was to deal with the "pro- posed hotel development in the Shoppers' World complex." Mayor Andy Anderson said as the meeting began there were two items included the second and third readings of the bylaw to close 4th Ave. S. and approval in principle of the hotel complex. Aid. Ferguson said she ob- jected to the inclusion of the bylaw on the agenda. Later in the meeting she quoted a pas- sage from the Municipal Gov- ernment Act stating that no item may be discussed if it is not on the agenda unless all members of council wish it to be discussed. Shortly after this Mayor An- derson asked for a show of hands on putting the bylaw on the agenda for Monday's regu- lar council meeting. Only Aid. Steve Kotch voted against the motion. Earlier Aid. Kotch had re- quested the decision on closing 4th Aye. be delayed until a re- port from the engineering de- partment had been received. Tom Nutting, city manager, said no report had been re- quested from that department. Aid. Kotch said he would like to have an estimate on in- creased traffic flow on 5th and 6th avenues before making a decision.

Wilderness group meets A "write-in" will be held to- night at the regular meeting of (he Alberta Wilderness Asso- ciation Lethbridge branch. The meeting starts at 8 p.m. in the Gas Company auditori- um, 410 Stafford Drive. Everyone is invited to at- tend with paper and pencils to write to federal MPs, provin- cial MIjAs and other govern- ment officials, concerning the proposed Akamina Kishhicna lark adjacent lo the Watcrton i Laker, National Park. Committee reports and group liscussions complete the neeting's business. Non-mem- >crs are welcome. Aid. C. W. Chichestcr replied i that it was unlikely that anyone j could estimate this before the I complex had actually boon built. Aid. Chichester also asked that more information concern- ing density standards he ob- tained from Art Batty, Uie de- veloper, More approval was given to the project. Mayor Anderson pointed out that Mr. Bully, in his presenta- tion to council Uiat evening, had said Uie density would be 0.11, close to the allowable fig- ure of 0.5 (A 0.5 density ratio means the total floor area is one-half Uie total site area, the allow- able maximum in the zone in which the site is located. Coun- cil earlier had approved the re- zoning from CG to C8. C6 zones have a density standard of 1.0 Mayor dislikes taxation plan but do not allow develop- ment.) Aid. Jim Ander.smi .said thai density was not a concern of council, hut could be dealt with only by the JIunicip.il Planning Commission. It was suggested by Aid. Vaughan Ilembroff that if the MFC turned the project down because of density standards the issue would come right back to council for a change in the standards, which council had refused to do this summer for another developer. Bylaw 2S12, lo close 4th Ave. S., will be on the agenda for Monday's meeting. C o u n cil meetings are open lo the public. Mayor Andy Anderson said Wednesday he doesn't favor di- rect municipal taxation of uni- versities at this time. He was commenting on ac- tion taken by the city councils of Saskatoon and Regina which have requested an amendment j of the Saskatchewan muncipal j act to allow such taxation. Regina and Saskatoon are seeking legislation similar to that recently enacted in On- tario which allow a tax of per full-time student to be charged by cities in which the universities are located. :I don't think we can com- plain too much Mayor Anderson said. The federal and provincial government are pay- ing the full bill for the univer- sity's operation. "If we were paying a good deal of the operational costs here the ?2S tax might be a good idea. It would result in a revenue of about It could well come in time but; I don't think this is the time." The mayor said he wasn't speaking for council. Nothing ever specific had been men- tioned along this line and no direct representation has ever been made by the council to the provincial government or the Alberta Urban Municipali- ties Association on this mat- ter. The city now receives a grant in fieu of taxes from most provincial and federal properties in the city. Even- tually, the mayor said, there may have to be some form of taxation on all properties in a municipality.
