Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Dust problem tackled again NATAL (HNS) - The District of Sparwood council has written to Kaiser Resources requesting a permanent solution to the dost problem caused from overloaded hauling trucks. Dr. J. M. H. Hopper, health inspector for the East Koote-nay Union Board of Health, and Jack Johns of Kaiser Resources are working on the problem. Dry weather will increase the problem, council said. Council felt Centennial St. would be a major street and does not want parking (which would have the effect of narrowing the street). Although the advisory planning committee had recommended permission of angle parking in front of business establishments on Centennial St., council did not accept this view. Aid. Altbmare reported the garbage dump needs of Spar-wood had been discussed with the pollution authority in Cran- brook. A request will be made to Crows Nest Industries for continued use of the present dump site for a sanitary landfill disposal, site. Crows Nest Industries recently reminded council that because of the fire hazard the agreement is to be terminated prior to the forest fire season. Jim Wayde was named poundkeeper and a temporary pound will be set up in the public works garage at Natal. A pound building for Sparwood is in the planning stage.
