Homeowners concerned were most upset when the test was Over he said and they Are prepared to pay the costs involved in obtaining the service on a permanent basis. The petitioners Point of View was presented to Council several weeks ago and or. Fyfe claimed the group had been Given assurances at that time that the request would be granted since then he said he understood Council had done an about face and now was stalling on the matter. Mayor Stanley Dowhan and a null or of the aldermen stated that Council was not stalling. The problem is that a except in the Case of the City of Winnipeg charter a Manitoba municipal legislation for such a service being provided As a local improvement applied to the taxes of the property owners directly involved. Tie alternative would be to charge the costs to the City a general assessment the mayor said adding that such an expense was not budgeted for and that it be fair to a the citizens to Light the Back lanes of just a few. Mayor Dowhan said Council could not attempt the estimated �z40,000 it would Cost to Light All the Back lanes in the City.

Upon hearing delegation members were worried about numerous incidents of theft and vandalism in their unlit Back Lane the mayor changed his stance somewhat. If East Kildonan police could prove that homeowners evolved were victims of a higher percentage of Petty crimes than were Home owners in other parts of the City it might give the Council a a logical excuse Quot to provide the requested service Alderman Michael Ruta with Alderman Norman p. Stapon As Seconder moved that Council proceed to Light the Lane in question without waiting for a police report or other special information. It was Defeated by a 4-3 vote with the mayor casting the deciding vote. But mayor Dowhan stressed that although Quot Defeated tonight a the citizens request was not dead.
