A Ilast-minute attempti Innaccommodate

Mayor Albert Wheeler's proiposed Hutman

jection at laist night's C'ity-(omuncil omeet-
ing.
Wheeler's propsanl, origintilly ired ail
last week's; working C'ouncmil sessions,
would have created a spsecial niiciptal
depairtnment to incoirpomrate a wide rauge
of social and cosmunity prsograms tinder

ately ran agrounmd onnaihenap nif protesta-
lions from the Council's Republican ma-
jority', however.
LAST NIGHT liemenayori presented a
somewhat weakened versio~n of Ihis oin-
inal pltan, binping Inn coas nut at letast
some Republican suport. Wheni the snip-
port tailed 'to materialise, Wheeler be-
came openly bitter.
"I came here buping to comsproimise"
lie told the Council. "Bitt I guess there
isn't any compromise."
He eunt on to attack the Reisublicans
for their lack of cooperation, saying,
"M\y colleagues think mitre of streets
annd parking thau they do about people."
COUNCIL MIEIER Robert Hlenry (R(-
Third Ward) dismissed Wheeler's com-
unt as a "political cheap shot." When
the mayor claimed he had "tried Io cut-
operate in every way," ety replied,
"What yonu did was retreat inch by inch
fromm yoiur original position."
The disclussion quickly degenerated in-
to a squabble over whether Republicans
had ever agreed to support a Buman
Scmices Department. H-enry and his tel-
now,; stoutly maintained they had never
supported mutch more than a consolida-
tioni of the federally funded Comprehen-
sive Employment Training Act (CETA)
and Comumunity D~evelopment B 1lmo c k
Grant (CDBIG) programs. But Council
D~emocrats complained that other prom-
msen had been made.
Council member <Jamie Kenworthy (D-
Fourth Ward) reminded the Republicans
that a meeting had been held earlier ia

it was the first semiofficial confirma-

tremendosus aid to Lebanso's right-wing
