A new 35-site housing sub- division was launched. It has underground utilities. Plans are now being drafted for another subdivision to be on the south side of town.

Sale idea brings protest CRANBROOK (Special) The Cranbrook Farmers' In- stitute and Livestock Associa- tion has protested by letter to Marathon Realty the proposed sale of an abandoned railway right-of-way between Cranbrook and Wardner. The Institute had assurance from Marathon Realty some time ago, say officials here, that it would have first priority if the 24 mile section came up for sale. Now it appears the Regional District of East Kootenay may acquire the long strip of land for park and hiking pur- poses. The association starts the year with a new board of directors: Glen Creelman of Mayook, Verd Casselman of Fort Steele and Vern Kuntz, Ray Van Steinberg and Harold Neilson, all of Wycliffe. Cliff Pippen of Mayook is past-president. Marge Unwin continues in the post of secretary- treasurer. South In short Council to pay costs CRANBROOK (Special) City council has decided to pay EPEC Consulting only some additional costs the company says it incurred during the construction of the city dam and reservoir project. A proposal by Mayor Ty Colgur that the city pay EPEC 000 as a final settlement was accepted by council. EPEC had claimed for ordering pipe tor the project and for costs incurred as a result of a concrete strike. Aid. Don Sherling said EPEC's foresight in ordering the pipe "probably saved us But council was not certain about strike costs. The strike was not council's fault either. Ignoring the claim for costs in- curred by the strike, council decided design changes and order- ing the pipe were worth to the city. Economic plan approved TABER (HNS) After some 90 minutes of deliberation and resolution, Taber town council Monday accepted an economic development plan in principle. It was submitted to the council by the industrial development committee Dec. 16. One of the recommendations of the plan is the expansion of responsibility of the development committee to encompass the entire economic development field to include commercial and residential in addition to industrial. Necessary changes to the covering by-law to cover a possi- ble name change for the committee and its increased areas of concern wjll be considered at a later date. Council also accepted a verbal recommendation of the com- mittee made at the Dec. 16 meeting that the industrial (how economic) development committee and the municipal planning commission be merged, the latter as a sub-committee of the EDC. Council deferred making appointments to the new com- mittee until the regular meeting Jan. 13, prior to which all members of both previous committees would be interviewed as to their desire to continue on the new basis.
