WALTER KERBER photos Pressure grows for better highway Council dumps power line TABER (HNS) The Taber Municipal District council has turned down an easement application by Calgary Power Ltd on which a power line may be erected to serve a new sugar beet dump two miles north of Vauxhall on Highway 36 The application failed to gam approval when the question of possible beet traffic congestion at the site was raised The piling ground is at a district road intersection with the paved highway with entry from the side road Canadian Sugar Factories Company had purchased the 80 acre site earlier in the year, since when a beet storage pile site has been levelled and a receiving scale installation is under construction A super piler has been moved from Taber to the site Lacking a control by law, the MD council had no control over the development, which was found necessary by local beet growers who have been hauling sugar beets to the Taber factory in previous years, some for a distance of 32 miles The MD council approved easement applications for the power company to supply power to the CKTA Taber based radio station Crowsnest Pass Bureau VERNON DECOUX, Resident Rep., 562-2149 SOUTHERN ELECTRICAL CRAFTSMEN LTD.
