Mr. Powlesland said produc- tion records will bo kept of ev- ery meal, with unpopular items removed from the menu. "Food popularity polls will be conducted, with the food prep- aration staff open to complaints and he said. The resident students will be allowed to choose a board plan, which will pay for the meals on a daily, weekly or monthly ba- sis. All food purchasing for the university will be supervised by Mr. Powlesland. "There is adequate dry and cold storage for supplies with food purchased from local and out-of-town lie said. "Frequent deliveries will cut down on excessive inventory and spoilage. "Vegetables will be brought in daily with meat supplies pur- chased two or three limes each week." He said the food services de- partment will offer banquet service to university groups and personnel. Residents are concerned over closure of lanes A familiar rilual was enacted Tuesday as Lelhbridge citizens met with members of city coun- cil to discuss Ihe intrusion of large developments into residen- tial areas. Public hearings were held in connection with two bylaws that will close public lanes one near the new Holiday Village project, the olhcr norfh of the Henderson Lake Ice Centre. Both bylaws have received first reading; neither was given second reading because council adjourned before reaching that part of the agenda. As has Ixieii the case in a series of public hearings related to the Holiday Village develop- ment, the project came in for criticism from some residents of the area. Pete Slcmko, a Glendale resi- dent, said the Holiday Inn would have an adverse effect on prop- erly values that the city had done nothing to compensate the people in frlcndaie for this. He also objected to the "creeping" aspect of the de- velopment, which, he said, vas encroaching further and further into the residential area as the weeks went by. The project should have been proposed in its finished form and then discussed, he said, rather than progressing on a piecemeal basis. The proposed lane closing in- volves fhe expansion of the Holiday Village parking lot farther north by one residential lot, now rezoned by council for this use. The closing would push the east-west lane north by the distance of this one extra lot. Lawyer Bill Davidson, repre- senting Holiday Village, said one reason for the addition of the extra lot was to avoid build- ing a parkade, which had been in the original plans, but which had been objected to by some Glendale residents. He added that a negative de- cision bv council on Hie lane closing would result in (lie mortgage money for the project having to be renegotiated. Discussion concerning the lane near Uie Henderson Lake Ice Centre iiealt mostly wilh the necti for adequate screening be- tween the rink and adjuining properties to the north. Several citizens express- ed alarm about the possibility that the city intended to extend the parking lot almost into their back yards. City Manager Tom Nutting as- sured them that final plans had not been drawn up and that with the space available the city would be able to provide some type of buffer, most prob- ably shrubbery of some kind. Dr. Bob Kasling requested that it be some type of green- cry that would grow fast enough to provide a useful barrier dur- ing the lifetimes of present residents of the area. Drug possession charges increase Tlie illegal use and possession of marijuana and hashish, par- ticularly near United States border points, has resulted in a flurry of police activity in that area. This year, for the first time, bonier police have been closely checking for illegal drug pos- session. During the past summer southern Alberta RCMP de- tachments have apprehended between 50 and 60 people carry- ing illegal drugs. This represents "a fantastic increase" over the previous year said a Cardston HCMP spokesman. The officer from Cardston, 14 miles north of the United States border, said the proximity to the border is the chief reason for the rash of arrests in the area. Although no major drug sei- zures have been made this year the police spoilsman said he doesn't "doubt for a minute that large shipments of drugs have slipped throng h" to Canada from the United States. During 1970 at least two large seizures were made by HCMP. A Cardston man, Robert Mel- vin Godfrey, 21, was the latest person prosecuted in Waterton Provincial Court, Sept. 4. Mr. Godfrey was fined and costs or in default, 50 days in jail, when he was found guilty of illegally possessing hashish in Waterton July 11.
