Alberta funeral home directors set up funeral information service Closing bylaw on council agenda Contrary to a public notice posted in The Herald Sspl. 3, there will be no public meeting with city council at 7 p.m. to- day. However, the scheduled meeting of council will begin at 8 p.m. At the meeting, council is ex- pected to consider amendment to the shops closing bylaw. Two more briefs have been in- cluded with the agenda con- cerning the bylaw, one from Lethbridge service station op- erators and one expanding on a previous brief submitted by Simpsons-Sears Limited. The service station operators have requested their business- es not be covered by a closing bylaw and that they be allow- ed to regulate their own hours. The manager of Simpsons- Sears reiterated his request to have stores open Monday, Tuesday, Widnesday and Sat- urday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with extended hours at Christmas.

They are currently in use on an experimental basis through- out the province. Mr. Smilh said the barrels are "eye-catching" and have proven successful to-date. The travel association hopes the litter bear concept catches on in other areas throughout the province and that it will aid in keeping the province cleaner. council, will be signed by the mayor and will say that the cily is prepared to invoke a SHOD per day penalty for failure to complete Ihe project by the specified dale.
