Slaughter Plant after monday s Council meeting. City of Lethbridge economic development advisory committee is seeking Council approval to establish meetings with senior Canada packers officials to try to get the Plant re opened. About 100 Lethbridge jobs both salaried and hourly were lost when Canada s largest meat Packer announced this month it is closing permanently the former gainers inc. Packing Plant that had been temporarily closed twice in the past six months. Aid. Bob Tarlecky who will present a Resolution to Council monday at the request of the advisory committee said Fri Day the rationale behind the Resolution is that As Well As Pur suing new business and Industry the City should be fighting to maintain existing businesses and Industry. The Resolution says that since the City is deeply distressed by the closure of the Plant and the loss of jobs a meeting should be set up immediately Between the mayor and City manager and senior company officials. Topics would be to determine the conditions which necessitated the closure of the modern packing Plant possible re opening of the Plant and Steps which the City might take to help the company re open the Plant. Tarlecky said he does t see getting into the meat packing business just facilitating operation of the Industry in Lethbridge. He said the City May find it has to take a More aggressive stand if it is proved that provincial or Federal policies Are detrimental to the meat packing Industry. But there will be Little to do if it proves that there is simply. An oversupply of beef. Then nothing can be when Canada packers Laid off the staff at the North Plant last december it said there weren t enough cattle to keep the Plant Busy. When it closed in March the company said there was a slump in beef consumption right across Canada and that it would accommodate All demand from the South Leth Bridge Plant. Regina project official says City made by Peter Scott of the Herald the City of Leui Bridge made a Funda mental mistake in allowing up rail to leave a track running through its rail Way relocation area says an official of a similar project in Regina. De Zsombor acting general manager of Regina s railway relocation office said Friday by leaving the track in place Lethbridge Likely doubled the length of time required to develop any property in the area. If you leave in a track like that you automatically reduce the land value and increase the length of time needed to develop Zsombor told the Herald in a Telephone interview in connection with Regina s request before City Council monday that Lethbridge give moral support to the Regina rail relocation project. Lethbridge May have been Overly optimistic. I think they got some bad advice on the Zsombor said an Impact study done on the Regina project indicated the development time would be doubled if a single track was left in place. Regina will remove All tracks from its downtown Core. Developers Don t want to build near a railway he said. Especially a development like a yet to sell any of the land it gained through railway relocation which moved the up rail marshal Ling Yard to Kipp. Zsombor said the1 Way gained a great advantage by not Only being Able to move but by having the province and City pay for it. They got a Brand new rail Yard in a Good location without having to take their trains through said Zsombor who worked for up rail for 11 years. And the railway just walked away with those things. I know the sys tem very however Zsombor said such considerations Are irrelevant if both sides believed they were getting what they wanted in negotiations. Regina s project is being negotiated under the railway relocation and Crossings act the first major test under the Federal legislation. Leth Bridge meanwhile negotiated with the province As its 60-per-cent partner with the railway. Whether a City would do better or worse negotiating under the act i m not sure but it would probably Cost said Zsombor. The Lethbridge project was Worth about million. Both sides in the bar tour bus crashes Walker Calif. A a tour bus packed with senior citizens returning from a trip to Reno nev., plunged off a twisting Mountain Road into an icy Swift running River Friday killing 16 people and injuring at least a dozen authorities in California said. John Gleason of the California Highway patrol confirmed that 16 people had died and said five others were missing in the River. Authorities sent All available emergency manpower and equipment including divers to the crash site 13 Kilometres South of Walker a town near the California Nevada Border. The los Angeles bound bus was about 145 Kilometres Southeast of Reno when it ran off . 395 into the West Fork of the Walker River. Gaining said up rail was left in a no gain no loss position at the end a pro vision of the orca. Regina is seeking moral support from Lethbridge in its scuffle with both up rail and in who said Zsombor have been dragging out the Legal procedure and delaying the project. The problem is this is a very Prece Dent setting he said. The act gives municipalities rights they be never had thus he said the railways want to ensure they Don t give up too much to Regina which would set a precedent for further projects elsewhere. The act gives the City the right to control its own said Zsombor. You Don t need the railway s agree ment to plan. You used to have to get Down on your hands and Knees to negotiate with them and then the railway went to the Canadian transport commission now you go As equal part Council will consider monday a letter from Regina mayor Larry Schneider asking the City to lend its signature to a Resolution which declares a municipal Ity has the right to apply for railway relocation without the agreement of the railway. Plan for a railway infrastructure compatible with its development plans not one forced on it by the railway receive from the railway All lands released from railway use. A Public hearing on the application will he heard in Regina sept. 29. Prior to the orca railway relocation could Only be implemented through negotiations with the says Schneider in his letter to Council. Usually these negotiations were very one sided in favor of the railway As they would not agree to relocate unless their objectives in the negotiations were satisfied. It appears the railways Are reluctant to proceed into a Etc hearing which will Deal with the merits of Regina s the Resolution asks Lethbridge to urge the Etc to proceed As expeditiously As possible to a hearing on the merits of the Regina project.
