Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 15, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Wennttfuay, January 15,1!H3. THE LETHBRIDGE DA1LI HERALD Passe 7 STREET AGREED Supt. Price and Colleagues Held Confab With the Council Resulting in Agreement Being Reached Satisfactory to all - Will Build Freight Sheds on 13th Street too City concessions: Will extend C. P. II. taxation exemption limits from present limits 1000 feet west of lath St. to l.'Uh Ktvesl. Will waive old 11/05 agreement, wheveby the C. P. K. could not place freight sheds oast of Coiitts street, given in return for the light to oletee 5th street south. Will pay half the cost of the subway, instead of only 40 par cent, as at first, requested. Will iiiiiRt the city on a pro-jiositlon to secure a three per cent, rcracle on the subway approaches. Will not ask for exemption from local improvement taxation on now area uddeil to the O. P. R. i.xomptiou from taxation area. Present exemption limits Include also Ia:a! improvement changed. However he admitted that so far as the new property to be exempted is concerned, the city might have paved the streets along the 'new frontage last year and the company would then have been assessed. He therefore uchan's Store Thursday lay Jan. 16 & 17 Preparatory to the Greatest Men's Sale Lethbrldge Ever Knew Entire Stock Down and Out Route for ore Startles Saturday, 18th, at 9:30 a.m. 406 "THE MEN'S MAN" . Sth St. South 10 Clothing Salesmen Wanted See Further Notice in Friday's Paper conceded his second point toy agreeing that the new tax exemption shall not include local improvement taxes. That was the last point he did concede, however. So far as Aid. Aird's suggestion is concerned, Mr. Price pointed out that if the company raised their grade S feet more as they intended to do, it wculd give the city the easy grade?:on the subway approaches they were ask ing for. However,, if the city did not wish to pay their share of paying for this extra grading up of the tracks, the company could leave the tracks where they are. That would mean more excavation, more concrete,' and an all-round greater ccst of the subway. Excavation costs about $1.00 per yard, concrete work costs about $7.00 per yard, while filling for a railway grade costs less than 25 cents per yard. The high grade would be better for the company, but it would also be cheaper and better for the city. . As for paying half the cost of paving the subway, iVIr. Price showed that the Board of Railway Commis- sioners always specifically states that this cost shall be borne by the city, as it is for city use only, and he could not therefore concede the point. The railway officials retired about 12 o'clock, and after a short,, discussion the council decided to accept the offer which had been made. This was quite satisfactory to the, company, which if approved by the head officials, will be submitted to tie council, who will have to submit a.bylaw to. the people for ratification, and. to raise the necessary money to defray the city's portion of the expense. The subway as it has been designed by the company engineers: calls for four tracks crossing it, two main line! tracks, and two switching leads- It also calls for raising the tracks about eight feet above their ffreseht level. As the track level Is now nearly three feet above the street level, ait'd as the clearance called for in all' subways is only 14 feet, it will be necessary, to excavate not more than three or four feet. Malting provision for a three per cent, grade will not requires' the approach to be more than 140 feet in length on either side, so that it 'will not toe necessary to damage, very much property on either side, nor will it be necessary to make a subway under the mill and wholesale spur in that section, south of the main track. It is estimated that tha total property damage resulting from ther construction of the subway will not be more than $1000. All subways in Calgary have at least a five per cent, grade on approaches.
