Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Taber MD stands firm on heavy loading ban TABER (HNS) Despite numerous protests, the firm stand of the Taber MD council against heavy loading on mun- icipal roads within the district is being maintained. The protests against the 000 pound maximum load limit were heard at a recent meeting of the council, advanc- ed five days from normal to allow councillors and adminis- trators to attend the annual convention in Edmonton. Presented verbally to coun- cillors, written to the MD of- fice, and by personal delega- tion, the complaints came from those normally loading to the highway limit of pounds, using district roads. These included potato grow- ers and processors, movers of heavy equipment, and others. Arguments were that the lesser loading from farm to highway necessitates secondary loading after reaching the highway. Council remained adamant in its bylaw restriction, noting that over weight permits may be obtained for unit loads which cannot be broken down to lesser weight. But those that can be reduced must comply. List voters CRANBROOK Listing for municipal and East Kootenay region electoral areas to vote Dec. 9 is com- plete. Cranbrook's list rose to from in 1971 following re- vision, and the six electoral areas listed Terms of city aldermen ex- pire for Tyrone Colgur, Murray McFarlane and Don Sherling. Terms of city school trustees expire for Mrs. Florence Gil- bert and H. H. Rose. In the six electoral areas of the region, director terms ex- pire for Lloyd Phillips of Hos- mer, Wayne Agnew of Canal Flat and James Whiting, Mead- owbrook. Term of the late Andrew Rosicky as Cranbrook rural trustee expires, along with that of extra-municipal trustee Ron- ald Dale. Prelection of the roadway, according to the council, is of prime importance, particularly in the spring season when frost withdraws from the surface of the highways not paved. In other consideration or road work, an inspection was made of the more than six miles of highway paved last summer south of Grassy Lake, by con tractors Galelli and Sons, en- gineers D. G. Mathieu, and the MD council. A number of pavement fail- ures were noted, and placing of responsibility for repairs will be made following a report from the engineering firm. Finally, requirement for a secondary road right of way through property required by the town of Taber for expand- ing its sewage irrigation sys- tem north of the Oldm an River was referred to district high- ways engineer T. G. McGreer. The question was raised by the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission because a split of titled land is requir- ed. the Cartoon Bug Scno ysur cartoons The Lelhbridge Herald, care of Mrs. Helen Kovacs, Bel 170, Lelhbridge, Alberta.
