THE FILTBAT1ON PLANT Letlbridge, Alia, May 16, '17 To lie Editor, Lethbridg" Herald: Dear reply to your editorial What on tbe Filter Plant" ana asking on bebalt of the citizens an authentic statement ss to the stat- us ot tie contract, and whether Uiere is any hope Ibal the plant ivill be com- pleted Ihis-year, etc." In tie absence oE tb.e 1 late pleasure in statins the' follovfing facts regarding this matter. The Con- tract between Ihe CJIv anil tbe liooerls Filter Mfg. Co_ I believe was as care- fully considered and is as tight and specific in its requirements as it veil can be. Toe object aimed at by the l iras Ib IhrOTV all responsibility perfect plant at a (lied price i upon toe contractors, excepting only in. tbe natter of foundations. Knowins that tne foundations of the present should bare been piled i1 we had every reason to believe that piling would be necessary for at least i part of the filtration 'iplant and PCS- Isibly all.of In aspect or the sit-] [UaUon.wiUi Intending bidders. they advised us that, if they figured on (foundations they would have to.give I themselves lie" benefit of any doubt 'and figure safe.; TVe argued that If necessary vrc do it as cheaply as they could arid If il was not necessary we'would be that ranch better oft. Consequently In order that toe city., might nave a planl minimum ot expense and at the saihe time throw all responsibility, on the Contractor for the.whole structure and Its successful operation, Up City agreed to supply foundations as.required by Hie con- Iraclor after excavations ware com- pleted and the actoal nature of the for foundation purposes -ascertain- cr. There Is a; margin provided for foundations, and the Company.h bond- ed for" the lull coat' of the plant for Iwo years and the City has the right to renew this Bond for two yeara more. Guaranteeing.the City a perfect planl both In the mailer of conslmcllou and iperatloa. I The.Contract contains a War Clause as most Contracts do ia peace times and ali fihould in war time I am of the opinion that we would have lo prove very unreasonable delay, not. due -to war conditions, in order lo sny claim on Ihta account. The delay so far has been most annoying and-to us II appears unnecessary lo a extent, and Ihe Council has used every effort lo hasten the'work am advised that the fuh-conlracta ha? paid a premium of ?9QO.OO fo'ob lain preference on steel delivery. ;K receipt 6( a telegram staling Ibal'an engineer leaves Tor" Hero' to day.
