Road work projects considered by MD CLARESHOLM (Staff) District highways engineer Joseph Glowach of Lethbridge told the Willow Creek MD council Wednesday the MD can use its entire special road grant to purchase oil. But the MD would have to make up gravel costs from its own funds. By purchasing the oil through tender through the provincial government, the MD will get 12 per cent off the price, Mr. Glowach said. Mr. Glowach, formerly of Edmonton, was accompanied by assistant engineer Monty McGregor of Lethbridge on his get-acquainted visit to the MD. The district engineer told Reeve George Whitehead he is correct in thinking that once the grant money is spent on oil the MD must buy oil on own without the aid of the provincial government discount. "Any exception would be cutting industry out of its said Mr. Glowach. "It is against the federal tax rules for us to do that." Reeve Whitehead said the MD wanted to obtain Enchant wellhead oil because "some of this other well head oil is not that good." Mr. Glowach said the source could not be guaranteed. But, "give us a sample and we will have it tested." He said every MD and county is trying to get Enchant wellhead oil. The MD lists its requirements for the district office at Lethbridge, it sends it to Edmonton and it is tendered from there. Reeve Whitehead said one expropriation will be necessary to push through widening of secondary Highway 520 to the Claresholm Industrial Airport. Mr. Glowach said the piece to the airport wasn't big enough to contract but Reeve Whitehead said he understood both the work on secondary Highway 533 from Nanton east and the airport road would be contracted. Nanton east would be upgraded but not paved this year. Coun. Jim Lowe of Nanton said the MD does not have the necessary equipment to handle the work. "We have got to get some new buggies if we took that said Reeve Whitehead. Seventeen feet will be needed on one side of the airport road to widen it to 36 feet, said the reeve. The Herald- District MD promises golf club annual tax relief CLARESHOLM (Staff) The Willow Creek MD council Wednesday promised a delegation from the Fort Macleod Golf Club the club will be relieved of about in taxes annually but it must apply each year. The golf course is riowi'ri the MD but a move is under way Livestock zoning approved CLARESHOLM (Staff) The hamlet of Orton, west of Fort Macleod, Wednesday was zoned by the Willow Creek MD as an area for intensive livestock confinement. The reason for the zoning, said Oldman River Regional Planning Commission planners, is that piggeries are thriving in the hamlet. Therefore, the northern end of Orton is designated as a place where raising pigs is suitable, reasonable and entirely legal. But there is one proviso no confinement of livestock will be allowed within 500 feet of the Smith residence. Said Coun. John Zoeteman: "I don't think we are going to have any problem. Most of the land has been bought up. There are only a few lots in the south end that are for sale." So the resolution under the MD's development control bylaw was passed. by the town to have it annexed. Two residents in the area are opposed to annexation by the town, said Coun. John Housenga of Fort Macleod. B. L. Williams, president, and Jim Wilson, secretary, said improvements costing are planned He said a clubhouse addition is planned. He said the members put in nine grass greens last year for by using a lot of volunteer work and ingenuity. Ordinarily the greens would have cost The club spent on a sprinkler system. Members have put in close to already on improvements. Coun. Housenga said about one mile of road will be graded and oiled but the parking area won't be graded because it is against MD policy to use equipment on private land. Still, a load of oil will be allocated to the parking area. Mr. Wilson said the club is willing to give up its property between the hill and Highway 2 in the event the Fort Macleod Flying Club is successful in obtaining department of transport approval for an airstrip. He said Dr. John Walker, flying club president, says the development is imminent. Mr. Glowach said his department is doing some surveying on secondary Highway 519 from Granum east and "I imagine that will be the next project after Nanton east." He followed this with the comment, "I guess there is some controversy about that Spring Point road too." (The Spring Point highway runs 26 miles west of Fort Macleod into prime recreation country and is a market road for ranchers in the "Right agreed Coun. Wallace Daley of Granum. Mr. Glowach said would grade five miles of the Granum east road. But Coun. Daley refused to drop the Spring Point road. He said council is on record as giving it priority after the Nanton east project. "Now you just mentioned Granum east." he said. Coun. Daley said the province must help. "It is such a long road and it is in such a deteriorated condition, under our articles of agreement it would be 15 years getting it said Coun. Daley. The assistant engineer said it would probably cost a mile for fegrading. The engineer suggested "it would be worth your while to go into Edmonton to see the minister of But he said the Granum east road was just a small piece and it would match up with work planned by the Lethbridge County 26. But Coun. Ken Weatherhead of Claresholm said the irrigation company is going to relocate a lateral and "it doesn't make much sense to upgrade, that road if we have to work up to our knees in mud." He said he would like to have a look at secondary road projects "before we draw up our articles of agreement." Because the province contributes 100 per cent of the cost of secondary highways, the district engineer must watch the projects closely. Councillors John Housenga, Daley and. Ken Weatherhead; will bring in proposals for. respectively. the Blue Trail from Fort Macleod south, the Spring Point Road, and Granum east. The provincial government has not released the amount of money available under the articles of agreement. SEED CONTRACTS CMtracttMwinHiMtfor PEAS and other SEED CROPS COLUMBIA SEED Co.
