Odyssey House may weather the storm created by the city's refusal Tuesday to go along with a request for a further $500 to carry the operation over the next three months. Terry Bland, a member of the Youth Services Council, which is responsible for the operation of the house, said Thursday a two - month reprieve had been arranged following a meeting Wednesday with the owner of the house. Rent, which had been $450 a month plus utilities during the summer, has been reduced until Dec. 15 to $350 - approximately the income from a student co - op now operating in the house. Mr. Bland and Cliff Black, head of a Chamber of Commerce committee investigating drug abuse, have agreed to pick up the utility bill. It is planned to reactivate the original committee that was responsible for setting up Odyssey House, Mr. Bland said, to put together a well-researched brief containing detailed proposals for a drug information and crisis centre. He said the brief would be presented, to city council and whatever other government bodies it was necessary to approach in order to get some support. A meeting has been scheduled for Oct. 22 in the YMCA at 7:30 to organize plans for the brief. Although it is not intended as an open public meeting, representatives of service clubs and other organizations are invited to attend, he said. Mr. Bland said the reactivated committee would be working in close co - operation with the Lethbridge and Region Mental Health Planning Council, which recently announced plans to act as a co-ordinating body for groups interested in combatting drug abuse. The need for co - ordination of efforts that are already being made in the city is of paramount importance, Mr. Bland said. He also emphasized that there is quite definitely a drug abuse problem in the city and something must be done now to provide solutions. He praised the efforts of the young peopfe who operated Odyssey House this summer and pointed out the importance of maintaining the line of communication with the younger generation that had been established over the past four months. i First Nod Given To New Industry Approval in principle for a new industry for Lethbridge was granted by the Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday.
