District By D'ARCY RICHARD Herald District Editor FORT MACLEOD Town council went into a secret ses- sion Monday night to discuss plans for a holding action Halloween night. Council hopes last year's "pranks" won't be repeated there were several major bonfires to contend with. Lot could be expensive FORT MACLEOD (Staff) A local citizen will be advised that erecting a building on the east half of lot eight and lot nine at the corner of 6th Ave. here could be a costly business. Harvey A. Bourassa has offered to purchase the lots. The offer was tabled Monday night by town council so the situation can be explained. "That whole corner was fill said works superinten- dent George Beta. "I think this man should be said Coun. Phil Hodnett. "There is cement blocks, there is everything but the kitchen sink in said Mr. Bota. "They would really have a problem." He suggested that test holes be drilled to see how far beneath the surface solid land can be found. But before the press was kicked out, five newly elected councillors were assigned to committees for the upcoming year. Dr. Ian Bennett was named deputy mayor for November. He will be followed in the post by councillors Jim Coutts, Phil Hodnett, Margaret Moses, John Viens and Ralph Webb. Council favored Coun. Hodnett's motion to cut the deputy mayor's time in office from two months to one. He said it should be changed because when a councillor finds himself in that office during the fall or spring "one poor councillor is going to attend a lot more meetings than another." Over the summer months, the deputy mayor has virtually nothing to do. Coun. Viens asked, "Could we assign the roughest months to Coun Coutts thought this would be hard to do and council settled for Coun. Hodnett's suggestion. Mayor Edgar said coun- cillors will switch roles in one "That way you get to know the trend of the whole town." Committee work was assigned as follows: Mayor Charlie Edgar: finance, municipal property and industrial development. Mayor Edgar gives up police and airport work. Coun. Bennett: electric light department, canine control, sanitation control and civil defence. Coun. Webb: public works, Oldman River Regional Planning Commission, pests and weeds. Coun. Viens: fire department, ambulance, air- port and leases, Willow Creek Foundation and Willow Creek Auxiliary Hospital. Coun. Coutts. water and sewer departments and Chinook Health Unit. Coun. Moses: public relations, publicity and police. Coun. Hodnett recreation, parks and cemetery.
