Sewage bylaw briefs heard 'Industry needs taxpayers' help' By HERB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer Alderman Rex Little told Tuesday's meeting of council (including several citizens whc had presented briefs regardinj sewage costs) that local mea packing industries cannot com pete in the world market they don't get some help from the taxpayer in paying sewag I I 30 RAEWOOD MOTORS LTD. 3rd Ave. and 16th SI. S. Sales 328-4539 Car lot 328-4356 "We'll keep working and try the best we can." Mr. Speaker praised the ef- forts of Douglas Miller, Taber- Warner MLA, in getting the provincial government to rec- ognize the community work in- volved in the building of the recreation centre. Les Usher, deputy minister of youth, said sometimes it takes tragedy like the fire two years ago to bring out the best in a community. "The planners of this com- plex have shown long range thoughts, planning for the ear- lier retirements and added lei- sure time for Canadians in the years ahead. It will serve the youth for years. "You planners got the conr munity as a whole to back the project for their own good and then you resolved to complete it." Dr. N. Stuart Boyle, Taber mayor when the former com- munity centre was destroyed Jan. 1, 1969, said million had actually been spent on the was on hand when the project was started and is to come from Taber ratepayers. Construction of the centre kept a lot of local people em- ployed, Dr. Boyle said, with Taber residents earning about Clarence Jesperson, reeve of the Municipal District of Taber, said the town and community were able to recover from the fire and now have a centre that is tops among towns of com- parable size in Canada. Letters of congratulations and commendations were sent to planners of the centre from Prime Minister Trudeau; the City of Medicine Hat; Earle Dawson, director of Hockey Canada; and Sandy Langman, former Taber recreation as- sistant. He also requested that the city do a study of all costs of production for the food proces- sors in Lethbridge and compet- ing centres. Proposals for a subsidy to in- dustry based on the findings of the study should be made at public hearings, he said. He estimated that the pro- posed sewer service charge by- law, as it now stands, would result in domestic users paying about a year more than their share, based on their contribution to the sewage treatment plant. A brief written by Paul Lewis on behalf of Pollution Alberta also asks that industry pay in pro- portion to their use of the fa- cilities. Mr. Lewis points out, however, that since this "sim- ply cannot be some tem- porary adjustment should be made. His figures indicate that in- dustry contributes about five- eighths of the biochemical oxy- gen demand load that must be AID request to be studied at budget time A request from the Advice, Information and Direction Cen- tre that it be included under the city's preventive social ser- vices was referred by city council Tuesday to the budget committee. The agency has been oper- ating since July, 1969 on a strictly volunteer basis. How- ever, current plans call for an expansion of services to pro- vide co-ordination of volunteer services in the city. This would require a budget of about including one full-time paid employee. Projects undertaken under the preventive social services program must also be ap- proved by the province, pays 80 per cent of the costs. treated, while being asked by the city to pay ror only to 40 per cent of the treatment costs. He suggests that the figure should b? at Iras! an cent. Aid. Jim Anderson said there was one problem with using the public utility principle. Tills was that the cost of the facilities were fixed and that hi order to pay for them rates would have to be fixed at a high level and remain there. This would make it impossible for the city to provide any motivation to industry to Install pre-treatment facilities through allowing reduced rates if tho facilities were put in. The sewage bylaw is expect- ed to come before council sometime fairly early in the new year. Trial date set Larry James Marchant, 22, of Victoria and Calgary has had trial date set as Jan. IS, a charge of possession of marijuana made Dec. 5. Marchant pleaded not guilty the charge in Lethbridge magistrate's court Dec. 7, and is out on bail pending trial. Golf course site unsettled City council last night de- cided to take another look a a proposed young people's golf course in North Lethbridge be fore making any commitments regarding the location. A finance committee recom- mendation that the course lo- cation in section nine on the northern edge of the city be confirmed was referred to the director of planning, the parks and recreation superintendent and the land sales committee for their comments. The golf course, to serve peo- ple between the ages of 15 and 25, was first proposed to coun- cil last spring by Reg Turner. After approval in principle hat been given, the Lethbridge and District Youth Recreation As- sociation was set up to over- see building the course. Some has been committed to date by 10 donors. Last week the finance com- mittee, which is made up of all members of council, passed a resolution recommending t h a the course location be shifter. to the eastern boundary of sec- tion nine. This would keep the course in the same genera area but leave room for light industrial or residential devel opment in land that can be ser viced without installing expen- sive sewage lift stations. Aldermen Joe Balla, C. W Chichester and Rex Little voted for the finance commit- tee recommendation, w h i c 1' would see the city committed to providing the land, but noth- ing in the way of services, equipment or manpower to build the facility. Opposition to a definite com- mitment at this time was led by Aid. Vera Ferguson, who said she felt council had been "led down the garden path" in Gasoline odor in sewer line City and fire department of- ficials are attempting to track down the origin of a complaint of gasoline odor in -the sewer system in the vicinity of 2nd Ave. N. A fire department official iVednesday said crews are try-' ing to find out where the gaso- line is coming from. The exact area of the odor is not known.

She suggested that il was a lot of land to lease for one dol- lar and that if it is to be put to recreational use it should be made available to all residents of the city, rather than just a select group. Aid. Jim Andersen con- Law change O opens areas for suites Third and final reading was given Tuesday by city council to a zoning bylaw amendment allowing multi-family units in three commercial zones. The move paves the way for a proposed project by Schwartz Agencies Ltd. for a combina- tion office apartment complex on 13th St. N. near Centre Vil- lage Mall. Blueprints for the develop- ment are completed and a de- cision is expected next week on whether to go ahead with the project now or wait until the frost goes out in the spring. Grant approved A bylaw authorizing an in- terim grant of to the Travel and Convention Associa- tion of Southern Alberta was passed by city council Tues- day. The association had earlier presented a budget containing a request for a grant for the coining year. The interim grant will help support the group until a decision is made by the budget committee on the request. COMPLETE CARPET AND LINOtEUM INSTALLATION HAMILTON'S FLOOR COVERING LTD. 909 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 327-5454 curred, saying that council had been trapped into discussing tlie cost of servicing the land rather than the uses to which it might be put. Aid. Vaughan Hembrotf said the original decision on the golf course had been made in haste and council should, take a "longer, harder, colder look" at the need for another course. He was concerned, he said, about the possible effect on the Henderson Lake Golf Club. "We don't want another mu- nicipal course on our hands next he said. The city owns the Henderson Lake land and backs the club's bond issues. Aid. Hembroff told The Herald if the club's recent financial difficulties continued the city might find itself be- ing called upon to meet tba club's commitments. The finance committee rec- ommendation was prompted by a suggestion from Tom Nut- ting, city manager, that it would be much cheaper to ser- vice land in section nine for light industry than to extend services for comparable devel- opment on the city's west side.
