Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LCTHBR1DGE HERALD Friday, September IB, 1970 UP, UP AND AWAY It may appear to the casual observer that this crane, which taWers over the 10-storey Stafford Place apartment, is in the process of picking the building up in one piece and moving it. There is some reason for this deduction as the apartment was recently discovered to be about eight feet closer to the property line than it was supposed to be. Actually the crane is removing the smaller crane on top of the building that has been used to take material to each floor as it was completed. Completion date for Ihe project, at 11 th St. and 5th Ave. S-, is set for near Christmas. Free Parking Extended Free Saturday parking has been extended to include all the yellow meters in the down- town area. Previously, free parking didn't include yellow meters east of 8th St. S. There is still some confusion over which meters are free. Free parking includes only the one-hour yellow meters. This does not include 12 minute, two- hour and four-hour meters which are red, grey and blue. There is a two-hour time limit on yellow meters. This does not mean a motorist can park his car for two hours free and them put money in the meter and expect to continue parking. Cars will be ticketed after two hours of free park- ing if they are not moved. Dur- Lifeguard Fee The Lethbridge separate school board wffl pay any addi- tional costs required by em- ployment of full-time lifeguards for its school swimming pro- grams held at tia Fritz Sick Pool.

Uof L Contracts Total Million Six new contracts for Univer- sity of Lethbridge west campus construction have been award- ed, totalling about million: Laboratory furniture to Vol- ley City Manufacturing, Ltd., for drywall, to West- ern Lathing and Plastering Ltd., for painting, to Park Derochie Ltd., for 399; Miscellaneous iron, to Ehef- rin Industries Ltd., for piess.ed steel door frames, hol- low metal doors, to Industrial Sheet Metal Products for 725; vibration isolation Work to Vibro Acoustics Ltd., for 840. Latest cost estimates for the entire million job are ex- pected now to be slightly under the budget, although the differ- ence could bs eaten up by va- rious contingencies or prob- lems. Work force on the site is 192 men at present, and construc- tion is almost exactly on sched- ule. To date cubic yards of concrete have been placed. Construction management of- ficials have decided to change their schedule by starting work on the north end of the build- ing, just below the visitors' viewpoint in order to raise tile entire building above ground level before winter. This has been done to avoid delay in continuity of the work if the project should get ahead of schedule during the winter months which it could do if operations continue as smooth- ly as they are now. Bordignon Concrete Ltd. has completed about 75 per cent of the precast concrete manufac- turing phase on the and now expects to be finished by about mid-October. Precast beams arc now in- stalled to the building's sixth level.
