Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE Road allowance shooting banned by county council The County of Lethbridge council gave final readings to three bylaws Wednesday, one of which ends hunting on road allowances in the county. The bylaw prohibits shooting on the allowances and imposes a minimum fine of for first offences and for further offenses. Those un- able to pay would spend no more than 30 days in jail. Other bylaws governed dis- aster services and closed Dia- mond City streets and lanes adjacent to land owned by Susan Deak. The condition of county roads was also discussed. A sore spot with County of Lethbridge ratepayers and frequent target for council's grumbles recurred when council bemoaned the sad state of county roads. Reeve Dick Papworth told council the county's road program is "not working." Of 35 miles to be oiled this year, only 13 have been completed. The gravelling program, the reeve added, is "in even worse shape." Roadside mow- ing is "going slow." Each year the county spends more money and hires more men without noticeably improving roads, he said. "I believe we need a com- plete evaluation of our whole set up." he said. Coun Steve Slemko challenged councillors to drive down the roads in his area, division 3, and see if their cars could withstand the rough road conditions. Coun Slernko told council he gets numerous calls from irate residents asking where the grader is. "I think nearly every road in my area is a washboard he added. Coun Henry Nummi agreed, saying, the roads in his area are "going to pot."

A bylaw closing Diamond City streets and lanes adja- cent to land owned by Mrs. Susan Deak received approval. The liberated land will be sold to Mrs. Deak. Council gave first reading to borrowing bylaws to pay for water and sewer im- provements for the hamlet of Coalhurst. Park is financial burden Keho Lake Park is becom- ing a financial drain on Couty of Lethbridge coffers, county councillors agreed Wednesday. Reeve Dick Papworth told county council he doesn't mind outsiders using park facilities, provided the county doesn't have to pay all park expenses. Coun. Otto Wobick said 70 per cent of park users travel into Keho Park from out-of- county. with many coming from Calgary. Coun Steve Slemko said the county should submit a cost sharing request to the provin- cial government. Coun Jim Nicol estimated the annual cost of operating the park at for one full- time and two part-time employers and equipment. Council agreed that if Travel Alberta can advertise the county park as a provin- cial park, then Edmonton can share expenses. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC ScfewirtzMi. 2225ft St. S.
