F.1.a            Alderman Bethel on Capital Projects at the Edmonton Art Gallery
                 _______________________________________________________

 I have had a concern expressed to me about the purchasing/tendering practices         City Manager
 for capital projects at the Edmonton Art Gallery, and I would like to know what the   Finance
 Gallery's policies and procedures are and what the role of the City of Edmonton's     Parks & Rec.
 Materials Management Branch is, if any.
                                                                                       Due: Sep 22/93

F.1.b            Alderman Chahley on CRD Systems Replacement Status Report
                 _________________________________________________________

 When the Systems Replacement Plan Status Report appears on the August 18,             City Manager
 1993 Executive Committee agenda, I would like a representative from DMR               Computing Res.
 Industries to be present at that meeting to answer questions on their report which
 is referenced in the report coming to Executive Committee.                            Due: Sep 22/93

F.1.c            Mayor Reimer on Separating Waste Streams
                 ________________________________________

 I would like a report from the Public Works Department on what can be done in         City Manager
 terms of separating waste streams to provide a space for compostables. When the       Public Works
 Clear Bag program was discontinued, Council, I believe, certainly wanted to make
 sure that other options were available both to landscape companies and citizens,      Due: Sep 22/93
 and it seems to me that other municipalities have gone this route even in the
 Edmonton region in providing a space for the disposition of compostable materials.
  You can use a front-end loader or backhoe or something to work the compost and
 even use it for cover for the landfill, I wonder what kinds of actions the Public
 Works Department has taken to provide alternatives to citizens with respect to
 compostables.

 of those landfills. I would like an indication from the Administration if, in fact, the
