Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHMIDOI HIRALD FrMnv, 21, 6th Ave. S. bumpy left turns. Stafford Drive at 5th Ave. note visibility. 6th Ave. and 6th St. S., where cars drift in deep corner ruts. Snow removal problems Clarification There's a truck coming from behind this 10th Ave. S. intersection snowpile. 's's Mayor Magrath Drive and 6th Ave. S. four-foot snowpiles hamper vision. are g up during the first 27 days of ft Jj January-H i" 1H At a cost of nearly per 5_ snow remova' crtrws or nearly double the cost of January snow removal in 1970. tSSmiESSfFMit vj Private contractors hired by the city joined city crews in around the clock efforts to nlmlze the safety hazards on i city streets. During peak snow removal days, 28 pieces of equipment consisting of graders, front end loaders, trucks and sidewalk plows, were fighting winter's snowy onslaught. Working in extremely cold A conditions, many of the ers operated in eight to 10-hour tons of sanding material has been spread on city streets already in January compared with about hamper Vision. 4 QQO tons used during a etting co November to mid-March winter year. Even the sand is costing the city extra. Crews usually gather back as much of the material as they can in the spring to be used to following winter. However, because of the constant snow removal operations, much of the material has already been lost. The controversial piling ol removed snow on traffic artery centrelines Is done for definite economic and practical reasons. It costs taxpayers a'oout per lane mile to plow snow and "windrow" it on the cenire of a road. By comparison, it costs in excess of per lane mile to truck the snow away. In order to provide a mayimum amount of snow removal at a minimum of cost city crews have windrowed snow covered streets. Snow removal crews then clear intersections to insure visibility for oncoming traffic. Drainage catches are also cleared to catch the water flow when warm spells set in. snow strategically on the middle of roads also ensures a drainage flow which prevents flooding and Ihickly-icnd roads during evening hours when the temperatures drop. Anyone encountering any type of emergency short of an electrical power break, can obtain assistance from radio-equipped city workers at any time of the day or night by calling donation made recently to the Southland Nursing Home came from the Ladies' Aid to the Hungarian Oldtim-ers' Association, not from both the association and the Ladies' Aid, as suggested in The Herald's story. The funds will be used to furnish a living room at Southland.
