Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 7, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, January 7, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 MRS. WILLIE SUP HOPES THE HURD BROTHERS PIGGERY WILL BEMOVED Brothers sign agreement to move piggery from house By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald Staff Writer An agreement has been reached under which three brothers will move a piggery located near the Willie C. Sup residence east of town. Willow Creek Municipal District official Jack Derochie said Monday. The brothers. Albert. Glen and Leonard Kurd, all Fort Macleod. have agreed to move their operation, making it conform to the control bylaw. They have agreed to build a new barn farther from the Hurd residence and vacate the old one by March 5. Last fall, they indicated they would not sign an agreement. "They are not in violation at the present said Mr. Derochie. "But once they get that building done they must use the old barn for storage. They have until March 5 to build a new barn and remove the old one or use it for storage." The new barn will be more than 500 feet from the Sup residence, east of the present buildings, to comply with the bylaw. Last summer Mrs. Sup could no longer stand the westerly breezes wafting the smell of pigs into her home. The. MD, MLA Leighton Buckwell and the develop- ment control officer met with the Hurd brothers to draft the agreement calling for removal of the old barn. The Hurd brothers had never obtained highway or health department permits for the piggery. The piggery could have been stopped under the old Health Act of 1967 which said an operation of this kind was to be feet from a residence. It was feet from the old Sup residence. "The Health Act should have done something then." River foundation formed by 100 says the development control officer. "But they failed to act." Mr. Sup's original 1943 dwelling was farther north. He says the Hurd brothers were denied a permit in about 1967 to build the piggery barn. Mr. Derochie says they never tried to obtain permits, later pleading ignorance to regulations of this kind. Mr. Sup occupied a new dwelling in 1970 which he erected much closer to the piggery, within 500 feet of the closest barn. The Hurd brothers took the attitude that if Mr. Sup wanted to live close to a piggery, it was his perfect right to do so. Both house and barn were erected prior to the passing of the MD's development control bylaw about tvo years ago. Mr. Derochie says that if the old barn is turned over to grain storage, the smell problem will disappear because the other buildings are modern and completely enclosed.

Council approved an estimate of for painting the office interior, and for carpeting in the general office area, offices and the boardroom.

A resolution was passed to cancel taxes of on the former Orion Church that has since been transferred to the Orion Community Hall Association. Taxes had been levied in view of the fact that the building was no longer being used as a church, but it will now be exempt from taxes in its use as a com- munity hall. A letter was received from Trimac Consultative Services re- questing information and costs relating particularly to road building in the towns and hamlets along the rail line from Skiff to Manyberries. County administrator Roy R. Wallman agreed to locate such information as was available, as time permitted.

The association will attempt to preserve the Highwood River. Ken Stiles was named chairman. Other officers are: Richard Wambeke. vice chairman: Phyllis Robertson, secretary; Charles Clark, treasurer and member at large. Directors are Jon Van Brunshot. Chuck Groenevcld. Ken Wallace. Ralph Nelson. Archie Hogg. Merv Edey. Dave Diebel. John Cartwright. Doreen Run- ciman. William R. McRaeand Derrick Runciman. Grants of from the department of the environ- ment and from the Town of High River have been nsefl to hire a student who made some surveys for the original organization. Charles Clark originated the project. The student walked the length of the Highwood River and interviewed ail lan- downers and residents. It was found that there had been abuse and misuse of land through recreational pur- poses. The situation, said Mr. Clark, was particularly bad from the Row River to the town of High River. Abuse was gradually spreading upstream from High River. Two main areas of concern were voiced by landowners: The misuse of agricultural land and the land banking schemes of non Canadian in- teresfs. mainly Europeans, with the result that much land was being bought up along the river hut not being lived on. The idea .started, said Mr. Clark, with the Town of High River's concern with the George Lane Memorial Park and the town's efforts to find an alternate area for tourists and campers along the river other than the park proper. The aim of the original com- mittee was to try to keep the river environment from being abused by campers and sportsmen. Mr. Clark said that changes are facing the people of the area but the committee wants changes under the control of people who own the land along the river. Otherwise, he said, there will be "dictation by the masses." This means that il other agencies have control of the land, the general public would have the power to vote in laws which would allow in- descriminate use of private lands along the river. Those attending agreed the primary need at present is to preserve the land. Agency bid was iabied TABER (HNS) A re- quest, made verbally by a member of town council on behalf of a farm machinery agency for five acres of land along highway 3. was tabled by council at this week's meeting. The land has not been sub- divided into commercial and residential portions, and the selling price has not been es- tablished. Further, no services are currently available and the costs of supplying water and sewer to the proposed subdivi- sion will have to be determin- ed and approved before such approval can be given.
