Mr. Nutting said Monday's flipe fit development in effect reverses ti'l't-'o the situation with the greater share earning from CMHC and allowing for the forgiveness grant. He said this will Mp keep the pcr-capita debt for the cily within the middle to low-middle range compared with other ci- ties in the country.

SECONDARY SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT This aerial photo, taken during the summer, shows the basic elements of the city's new mil- lion secondary sewage treatment facilities. Located in the river valley fust soulh of Valley Feeders, the plant is now close lo completion. The last shipment of equipment has been received and is now being installed. Testing is also under way. Primary stage treatment in the new plant has begun, and will be increased this week. One of three parls of the second- ary treatment process is scheduled to start soon. Secondary treatment involves setting up the right conditions for a complex biological process within the plant, which will take several months to accomplish. The date on which the plant is fully functional depends on several factors, includ- ing the weather and sewage strength. The plant was to have been com- pleted Sept. 1. Task force seeks public participation Organizers of Alberta's Task Force on Urbanization and the Future apparently mean busi- ness when they say they are looking for public parlicipation in the three year study. All reports from the task force make mention of the fact the study into the problems as- sociated ivilh urbanization will require broadly based partici- pation if the study method is to be successful The latest news release from Glenn Sinclair, task force com- munications co ordinator, ex- plains in some detail an invita- tion to the public lo become in- volved in the study. The invita- ation is contained in a pamph- let that has been distributed lo minicipal offices throughout the province. The news release consists of an interview with Peter Booth- royd, task force co-ordinating director. In it he says the aim of the ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Denial Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 32B-4095 study is to involve as many people as is possible and prac- ticable, and to come up with solutions to problems associat- ed with urbanization in Alberta. "The task force approach is to involve a Jarge number of people in each problem by lis- tening to what we call task committees. The task commit- tees will have on them repre- sentatives of different types of interests. "These interests may be gov- ernment agencies, they may he citizens groups, they may be business or labor organizations or perhaps in some instances they might even be interests which are not represented by any organized group at the present time but which never- theless we have found to exist.1 Mr. Boothroyd says the task- force is going to try to contact large numbers of people to let them know about the study and, where possible, "plug them into the process." Arrangements have been m with every city hall in the prov- ince (at least those oulside Ed- monton and Calgary) to take messages from people so that First beet harvest of season starting The first general harvest of was started Sept. mthem Alberta's acre two factories start southern sugar beet crop slarted this morning under ideal weather conditions. 20 and the started slicing the beels Sept. 22.

The organizers also say they ar-. "happy to receive letters or any other type of communica- tion" from people around the province who "have something to say about who tlirow light on a particular problem or raise new problems that haven't been brought to the task force's attention. The booklet that is now avail- able at municipal offices points out ihat Alberta has not yet en- countered many of the "threats to the quality of life that have had such devastating elsewhere in North America." "If Alberfans can no longer escape the forces that threaten the quality of rural and urban life, then they surely musl learn (o understand and control them." The task of understanding and controlling changes in so- ciety, says the pamphlet, is "loo important to be left to professionals and government officials alone." Council will seek new zoning bylaw A resolution instructing the executive director of the Old- man River Regional Planning Commission to consider a more specific zoning for the desig- nated urban renewal area was approved by city council Mon- day. The direction was in response to planning director Erwin Ad- derley's suggestion that "in light of the suspended nature of the area" his deparfme could recommend to council more definitive approach zoning in the area. The urban renewal area c lends from the coulees to 4 St. S and from 1st Ave. to G Ave. S. The recent submission of sc eral applications for develo ment in the area prompte council action.

Snow flurries overnight and significant snowfall Wednesday have been forecast for the Leth- bridge area. The sunny skies now in the area will be short-lived as a Pa- cific disturbance from British Columbia moves into Alberta. Moist air and cloud condi- tions will be here by this eve- ning with one or two inches of snow expected to fall in most areas from Lethbridge north to Calgary. There wijl be greater Ltd. plants. Snow conditions, could create problems. however, amounts of snow in the foot- lill and mountain regions.

Jean Charles Golish, 18, and Ronald James Killington, 17, both of Victoria, Brilish Colum- bia were remanded in custody in Lethbridge magistrate's court for one week to await the transfer of charges from Dun- can, B.C. The charges to be transferred are unlawful escape from a boy's detenlion home and i theft. The pair was arrested in Ta- ber by town police Sept. 17 and brought lo Lethbridge, where charges of breaking and enter- ing and attempted theft were waived so they could be trans- ported lo B.C. for trial. They appeared in court that afternoon, and made good an escape from the Lethbridge po- lice cells the same evening af- ter a police guard accidentally left (he keys to their cell in the lock. Golish and Killington remain- ed at large in the city for about an hour, before they were ta- ken into custody again after en tering the Kate Andrews Built ing on the Lethbridge Commun ity College campus. They appeared in o ur again Sept. 20 and pleaded no guilty to breaking and enterin and guilty lo unlawful escape They were then remanded fo one week to await the othe charges. It is believed a legal prob lem has developed becaus they are considered juveniles in British Columbia and adults in Alberta. II is uncertain how th B.C. charges will be deal with, since juvenile charge cannot be transferred to an adult court.

One of (he applicants P. M. Hoof, requested a rezoning of the property at 420 5th St. S. to accommodate the sale of re- creation vehicles and acces- sories. Rather than rezoning the council passed first rending of an amendment to the zoning bylaw which would allow for the continuing issu- ance of a temporary use per- mit. Subsequent lo that reading, council directed the city solici- tor to look into the feasibility of drafting a further amend- ment to formally allow the use of properly for something oth- er than what zoning requires. Alderman Jim Anderson said such an amendment is neces- sary lo accommodate persons who wish lo establish a busi- ness but have been unable to find appropriately-zoned prop- erty. The temporary-use per- mit would aljow those persons to slarf their business while ooking for such property, he said. On a related matter, council directed the MFC to clarify the previously approved applica- tion of Sidorsky's Furniture and consider reclassifying it as being approved under a C-4 zoning designation, condition- ally permitting automotive use.
