The remaining costs include: for design fees, for idditional chlorination, or a full-time resident city in- pcctor and for construc- ion conlingencies.

However, Bill Brown, parks and recrealion superin- tendent said it can now be sal- vaged. Much of the leakage, al limes ranging from to gallons a day, has occurred in this section of the pool. The pool capacity is gallons. The plans call for the existing pipe system to be torn oul and replaced with a series of con- crete tunnels surrounding the pool in which new pipes will be placed. This will facilitate ac- cess to the pipes if repairs are necessary. The initial design had most ot Ihe pipes under concrete, Mr. Brown said.

Mr. Bartlellt, currently co- ordinator of community ser- vices planning in Calgary, is to start work Oct. 11. The major administrative shuffle involved in the creation of the new department is to take place Oct. 1. Bill Brown, currently sup- erintendent of the parks and recreation department, and Dick Mells, now cultural af- fairs superintendent, will be the senior administrative per- sons under Mr. Bartlett and will oversee the department un- til he arrives. Under the new scheme Mr. Brown becomes superintendent of parks and historical opera- lions. He will supervise historical, museum, parks capital and maintenance programs and the administration of all civic buildings and facilities, with the exception of city utility oper- ations Mr. Mells becomes the super- intendent of culture and rccrca tion, combining his previous function with responsibility for recreation programming. He will co-ordinate all activi- ties where the city is involved either directly or indirectly ivilh cultural and fine arts programs and recreation progams.

Mr. Nulling is working to- ward Ihe relocation of Kay Jensen, lire city's public assis- tance officer, in the offices of the Lelhbridge health unit, which is housed in Hie nearby Gait building. Anlhony fobin, director of prevcnlive social services, will move from cily hall lo the new j centralized operation in this building. Mr. Nulling said he felt fhe new organizational set-up would provide a "new and positive ap- proach" io cullural and recrea- lional adivilies. one more "closely allied with the needs cf Iho community." The move separates the re- sponsibilily for recreation pro- gramming and Iho maintenance of recreation facilities and cen- tralizes all programs dealing with human resources develop- ment under one director. The shuffle has been under consideration since fall of 1970 and is related to a change in Ihc structure of (he committees thai city council on such mailers. Council Thursday approved the consolidation of (best1 com- mittees, including the parks and rccrealion commission and the prevcnlive social services advisory cominitlec, into one five-member community ser- vices advisory coimmtleo.

Alderman Vera Ferguson said she would like to see a commission set up to review special situations so that one person wouldn't be required to make a judgment on those si- tuations. Aid.

Parking changes O planned h. A series of recommendations by the finance director concern- ing city operated parking lots and the cor park were referred lo the cily manager and finance committee by city council Thursday. Council concurred that more nltcmalivcs could submitted to alleviate Ihc downtown park- ing problem than were prosenl- ed in a report from the finance director. In tiie report, a recommenda- lion was made to discontinue the services of commissionaire- cas.'iiers and to utilize a coin- operated gate charging a flat rate of 25 cents per entrance lo (lie car park. It was also suggested lhat the present rental of stalls in the car park on a basis be continued. The report also recommended lhal the Hull Block parking lot operation he discontinued, and the city's lease with Marathon Really Ltd. for development of the site be cancelled.
