Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Norby hits equipment purchase Town would borrow $42J500 By PAUL ANDERSON Herald News Service CLARESHOLM - Town council has introduced but not passed bylaws to borrow $8,000, 123,000 and $11,500 for construction of sidewalks, curb and gutters; to purchase heavy equipment such as diggers and loaders and for general street improvement. Councillor Floyd Norby op- posed the purchase of more equipment. Council also gave first reading to a bylaw to set a policy of payment of frontage taxes on residential property. The town would assume SO per cent of costs at the time of installation of service lines, on water and sewer. The property owner would pay the other SO per cent either,in a lump sum or in equal payments over a 20-year period or less as council would determine. The payments are expected to be about 72 cents a front foot in the new sub-divisions. Mayor Patterson made a motion to have the secretary prepare a bylaw banning horses from within the limits of the town as a result of complaints. It was defeated.

New bridge is nearly completed SENTINEL (CNP Bureau)- Provincial government bridge crews, working under supervisor Len Frayne, have almost completed work on installing the new prefabricated girder bridge over the Crowsnest River just east of Crowsnest Lake. The new bridge is considerably wider than the former structure and removes a road hazard in the area. A second new bridge is to be built over Allison Creek, about one mile east of the new bridge over the Crowsnest river. This bridge will also be considerably wider than its predecessor. Work has already started on this structure that will also be constructed of prefabricated materials. Most of the ground work and hauling is being done by Drain Contracting and Aebli Contractors of Blairmore. The firm developing the subdivision, the owner and the consulting engineers have discussed the importance of having the ditch removed. The ditch must'be relocated to provide farmers north of town with irrigation water. A meeting with the developer and council is being arranged to discuss costs. 50 FOOT LOTS Council is prepared to consider the request made by Henry Homes Construction Ltd. of Lethbridge for 12 50-foot lots. In its motion council said it would consider amending the town zoning bylaw to provide for a special zoning bylaw to accommodate low cost housing only. Council will request the definition of low cost housing from the firm making the request for the narrower lots. Town policy is 60-foot lots as the minimum in all new subdivisions. The final delegation was from the Calgary Power company. Council came to the decision that it is prepared to pay for one-half ($200) of the cost of temporary voltage equipment installed by the firm at the Sportsplex site. Council contends it was given to understand the cost would be borne by the firm. Council also feels the franchise agreement with the town and the power firm means the capital costs are the responsibility of those supplying the power. The town pays for the power consumed.

Cranbrook plant on 24-hour shift CRANBROOK (Special) -Night shift has been added at Crestbrook Forest Industries Ltd. Cranbrook plant, bringing plant production up to 24 hours a day. The new plant at the north end of the Industrial Park went into operation last summer, going into afternoon shift production later as run-in phase was completed. Modest market improvement which started in January continued through to early March where it is currently levelling and easing of railway car shortage has warranted the third shift. Similar third shift extension is planned toward early April at CFI's twin new plant at Canal Flat. Additional sawmill shift at Cranbrook, along with additional planer re-run shift, has added 20 to 25 employees. Logging has not yet been closed down for spring runoff woods closure.
