The annexation was ap- proved by the provincial local authorities board recently. It includes the north half of section 23, all of the southwest quarter of section 23, all of the northwest quarter of section 14 and all of the north-south road adjoining the westerly limits of these lands. The board granted the appli- ation for several reasons, one of which was that "the town's development and the stated de- mand for industrial sites which are not available with the pres- ent town limits, indicates a need for additional industrial and sites within the town lim- its." Claresholm Auction Mart Ltd. represented that its prop- erties, rural in nature, should, if annexed to the town, be as- sessed and taxed on their pres- ent agricultural basis, until de- veloped for urban purposes. The town supported the Auc- tion Mart's request. Concern was expressed over the effect of 'annexation on weight limits on one and one- half miles of north-south road. The town indicated that im- provements to the road to the cemetery were in the planning stages and that sewer and wa- ter senices may also extend along the north south road, ne- cessitating its up-grading. An alternate truck route to the town is also being studied by the town.
