r  review of the service desired from Loomis Armoured Gar
Servii    s made, and it war:        that the service would
into effect August 1st.
777  Loomis Armoured Gar will bring change from the     to
the Wharf Ticket Office every moraina;, collect Wharf Ticket    ca,
Iftmrl Freight Office, and Canadian Pacific Airlines remittances and
transport them to the Bank of Lontreal.  The morning collection to
be     -X  approximately 9»30k and the afternoon collection at 14.30k.
•. Goodwin is to work out details with the Bank for supply!.:'? with the necessary change for the Wharf Ticket Office, after
he has been advised b -   Jorc- ather the change will be required
in the morning or In the afternoon.
xe  monthly cost of the contract' for all the three services
will - b  ant to ^112.50 - OlO.OO of which is to-be billed to the C.P.A.
and 16% Jordan will take up with the J.G.C.S. and establish an
amount 4°u &e  billed against that seri^ice each month for the transportation of Wharf Ticket Office    -tances, it Is expected that FORM   tOlQjN
mm       9        mm
this amount will be somewhere between $30.00 to $50.00 per month,
as the/ are being relieved of an expense of ,,30.00 per month for
taxi fare alone.  Under the new arrangement the Operating Department
will absorb the balance.
The maximum liability insurance of $50,000 will be carrl
for the Jharf Freight and Wharf Ticket Office remittances and
,,000." for the Canadian Pacific Airlines.
Is ar:    cent has been put into effect in order that
greater ade of the service of the Constable Who now goes
as escort and also to provide       Utional leaway in the
offices involved, inasmuch as it 'will no longer be necessary for a
member of the staff of either of the three offices to go to the Bank.
In order to derive the greatest benefit possible from this
an      b, it was suggested that a review be made of other trips
which require the services of an escort, and which could not very
all be brought under the Loomis Armoured Car scheme because the
additional cost involved did not justify their inclusion, it is
hoped that these trips can be consolidated or confined within a
spread of one and a half or two hours during the day, preferably
in the afternoon so that the services of the Constable now performing
the escort can be utilized in the handling of automobile traffic
on and off B.C.C.S. ships.  This feature has been discussed with FORM   101 O*
Mr. Johnston this afternoon and he will contact Mr* -Jordan to
see if the City Ticket and Depot Ticket Office trips can be combined
and performed in the afternoon, and If the remittances from t
Local Freight to the Bank can be consolidated or performed at tirses
which will work in to better advantage than at present.
It has also been arranged for the first two or three days
until the system is running smoothly, the head of the Departments
handing remittances to Armoured Car Service will be on hand when
the service is performed In company with a Uniformed Constable.
This Is deemed necessary until our various cashiers become acquainted
with trie Armoured Car Service employees and vice versa, so that
we will be sure that remittances are being placed in the proper
hands*  Loomis Armoured Car Service employees are provided with
proper identification and this will be demanded as long as it is
deemed necessary to do so.  Representatives of the Loomis Armoured
Car Service will also be on hand during this period.
8 foregoing arrangement has the concurrence of those who
attended the meeting and copies of Instructions which Mr. i^allaby
will issue to the various Agents will be provided for your files.
