The firm was recently sold to a Ketowna firm to relocate the dusty, noisy mix plant from A. G. Bayes Ltd. machinery de- pot above its gravel pit and about a mile west of city toils. New owners leased from Mar- athon Realty a large strip par- cel on the west side of King Street just over the crossing and southward. Location is in city limits and zoned industrial, and the city council declined to interfere with transfer of the mixing plant, though it is also within yards of the Van Home arterial Jirougli the city. The Regional District of East Kootenay to whom the resi- dents appealed, referred them to a variety of provincial bu- reaus which might have had authority to stop construction on health grounds of dusty air and noise pollution.
