Meckling, city engineer summarily dismisset by city council last December will receive an out-of-court set ttement of on bis wrong ful dismissal claims. Council is still smarting from its pyrrfaic judgment in late 1972 when the supreme court dismissed suit for wrong- ful dismissal two years earlier of three senior city employees 6. M. Robertson, Emfl Brick son and R. L. DeArmond, on the technicality that dismissal o other than officially designate! city a title not held then by any of the three, re- quired only 30 days notice un- der the municipal act. Written judgment made clear the various city council witnesses had failed to prove any ground for Mr. Robertson'! dismissal. Court costs were charged against the city. No breakdown of ratepayer costs for the hearing has been published but 1972 city public accounts list payment of fll, 448 to the law firm. After three days of detailed bearing of defence evidence in a Vancouver, B.C. Supreme Court session, the sudden city decision was made to settle.

EASEMENT A communication was also received from Columbia Nat- ural Gas in regard to an ease- ment through district land for the company's pipeline. The company requested settlement of the easement agreement. Council decided to call a meet- ing with the company to com- plete the matter.

The agreement, which.was firmly reached in discussion, has been put into the form of a contract for sign- ing. It calls for the district to purchase the reservoir site for an agreed price of and for council, to bear the costs of surveys on the site, the ease- ments and the costs of convey- ing the property to be sold. The advisory planning com- mission recommended approv- al of tfae plans of Raefield Elec- tric for the construction of a building in the light industrial area. The commission also recom- mended that council study the possibility of developing addi- tional lots in that area and that they undertake a study of loning the urban reserve area in the Elk Valley. DUMP ABUSED AM. Reg Taylor reported on a meeting of councillors with the provincial .pollution control people and the garbage dump contractor in regard to opera- tion of the dump. The pollution control people seemed reason- ably happy with the way the contractor is handling the dump, but very unhappy with the way the general public uses the facility. They recommended setting of hours for individual use of the facility and the marking of des- ignated areas for certain types of refuse. The committee of council is to meet with the con- tractor in regard to these rec- ommendations. A request for. street nghtmf in the area below the cemetery in the Elk Valley has been ed over to the Pjjbjjc works jomtnittee (or tipni There are a number of problems associated with the lighting in the area as the road where the fighting would have to be located is a private road, not a designated district road or provincial highway.
