Company president Merlin Adams was out of town and unavailabb for comment Thursday but according to Mayor Andy Anderson the move "looks like it will be- come a reality in the near future." The major said the envi- ronment department re'oca- tion grant program announce- ment Wednesday had been expected by city officials, some of whom had discussed the matter with Environ- ment Minister Bill when he and other cabinet ministers were here for the ?1CO a plate Progressive Con- servative dinner earlier this month. Under the program, indus- tries with an appraised plant value of less than million would be given grants of between 25 per cent and SO per cent of the cost of the existing plant, excluding land value. The program applies to such industries as rendering plants, packing plants and feed lots and is an attempt to keep an industry faced with mounting environmental standards operative and pro- viding jobs. Mayor Anderson said offi- cials are still working at find- ing a relocation site for the ear-old plant that will be suitable to both the owner and the environment department. He said this can and will bs realized very soon. Negotiations on a City Packers move have been under way for nearly a year- and-a-half and Mayor Ander- son termed it an ex- cellent three-way co-opera- tive effort City residents have pro- tested the smell from the plant at 43rd St. S. just east of the city limits for some time. The plant may also be eli- gible for a department of re- gional economic expansion grant if it relocates The mayor said he could also see the day when the stockyards are moved out of the city, although there is no schedule for such a move as yet Local trustees' pay 'adequate' A proposal to increase the salaries of school trustees at Medicine Hat has received no opposition from Lethbridge officials and even some support from the chairman of the city's separate board.

"Probably the honorarium here is Dr. Mc- Pherson said. Separate board chairman John Boras agrees, but claims trustees may soon be forced to increase their board allowances" in relation to an increasing workload "One of the problems with trusteeship in today's very, very complicated situation is when you have reports and studies and surveys to con- sider carefully and in depth. "It requires more and more time on the part of elected officials to be able to fully grasp what these reports Mr. Boras said. He said he believes the ex- isting Lethbridge salary scale for trustees is adequate, even in light of regular board committee meet- ings, education functions and work for the Alberta School Trustees' Association. A blend of both The University of Lethbridge looks towards the city from its imposing setting on the west side of the Oldman River. Designed by Vancouver architect Arthur Erickson, the harmony the structure has with the surrounding un- dulating coulees has made it an object of considerable interest to architects and builders.

Locals hope the race will be the second jewel in the triple crown of gopher rac- the world derby in Eston, Man., and the United States open derby in Shelby, Mont., comprising the other two legs. The derby will be in9luded in the town's annual Bonanza Day celebrations. The Shelby races are sched- uled for the 19th to 22nd of July. And the Eston races are held later in the summer.

A study aimed at achiev- ing co-ordination of fire, am- bulance, library and solid waste disposal services was approved in principle by the Oldman River Regional Plan- ning Commission Thursday. The regular monthly meet- ing of the commission, made up of representatives of all local governments in the re- gion, discussed at length the inequities in cost-sharing ar- rangements for such services in many localities before ap- proving the study. Some members felt the study was unnecessary be- cause the current arrange- ments they had worked out in their own towns and countias, villages and municipal dis- tricts were satisfactory. But obvious prob'ems in some areas do exist, according to statements made by other members. ORRPC executive director Lawrence Smith told the meeting the Task Force on Urbanization and the Future expressed interest in the study and believes it will have implications for the whole province Final approval of the study cLrcends on costs and finan- cial support from the prov- ince and local govern- ments. The city of Lethbridge has already voted to support ihe project Notice of motion was also given at Thursday's meeting to adopt the preliminary re- gional plan at the commis- sion's August meeting. Some 400 copies of the plan are to be mailed out to all members of local councils throughout the region in the next two weeks. Reactions to the plan will be requested be- lore the next meeting.
