Find Out In The Herald's Next "CHINOOK" INCLUDED WITH THE TUESDAY, NOV. 28, ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Pollution devices wouldn't rid odor City Packers asks for help By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer City Packers Ltd. is prepared to install all the anti pollution equipment necessary to meet provincial health and pollution regulations. But that won't completely clear up the foul odor which emanates from the meat pack- ing, rendering plant and feed- lol operation when easterly winds blow through Lethbridge. Merlin Adams, president of City Packers, is sitting on the horns of a dilemma. He says he has three choices. City Packers Ltd. can spend at least and get anti- pollution equipment which will bring the plant up to provin- cial health and Clean Air Act standards. Earlier this month Environ- ment Minister Bill Yurko told the legislature that City Pack- ers equipment was outdated and that a letter was issued on Nov. 3 telling the company to meet provincial standards. Mr. Adams has since display- ed a letter, dated Nov. 3, in which Mr. Yurko's department requested information about the City Packers operation. The letter, which Mr. Adams said was the only letter he re- ceived from the environment department, dated Nov. 3, did not set any ultimatums, and therefore contradicts Mr. Yurko's reported statements to the legislature, he says. Mr. Adams told The Herald that the installation of new anti- pollution devices would not only reduce the level of smell but also the outflow of waste which occasionally enters a natural Anglo Distributors SERVICE CENTRE 419 5th Street South Phone 328-6661 NOW OPEN Government Licensed Technician Repair! to Radios, Televisions and Tape Recorders.

Results of city studies on wind direction are similar. The rest of the time the winds blow from other directions which do not spread the opera- tion's smell into Lethbridge. If provincial regulations are met no one would be able to make legitimate complaints, he said. Second choice The second choice left open to the company is to relocate its entire operation. This is what the city wants. Mr. Adams said relocation of City Packers, located on 43rd St. near the Exhibition grounds but outside city limits, is im- possible without substantial city provncial or federal govern- ment financial aid. Mr. Adams alra wants to re- locate City Packers. However, the city charges that the company has not given its officials estimates of the cost of a move. The city needs the figures to ask the federal department of regional econo- mic expansion to help City Packers financially. Dennis O'Connell, economic development officer for Leth- bridge, says these estimates should include: equipment and transportation costs plus what- ever money the company ex- pects from the sale of its pres- ent property. Mr. Adams admitted the cost figures, which the city only re- quested this year, have not yet been furnished. Relocation cost He said the cost breakdown for relocation would be (1971 price For the rendering for basic equipment, control devices and a further for land and construc- tion costs. The replacement cost of the head cattle feedlot would be about per head or about in total. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5th SI. S.

The "minimum" replace- ment value of the packing plant is Mr. Adams said. He said the feedlot will have to be located away from the city at least three to 12 miles as set out in provincial regulations governing new feed- lots. Finding a suitable feedlot lo- cation poses difficult problems. Mr. Adams claims provincial regulations coupled with other economic factors make it hard to find a good location. Mr. Adams told The Herald he feels the packing plant should be located in the city's industrial park area, but added, the rendering plant should not be part of it because rendering plants deal with dead animals not killed for butchering. The carcasses of these animals are made into animal feeds and are not for human consumption. DREE talks He said he has met with fed- eral department of regional economic expansion officials in Leliibridge. But the company could not negotiate for a large enough grant to make the move economically feasible for his "small company." City Packers, he added, has not submitted an actual appli- cation for assistance from DREE as a result of the talks. However, company officials are conferring with provincial officials for grant money to move the operation. In May, 1971, Mr. Adams ap- CITY PACKERS Lethbridge residents have often complained and petitioned against foul odors emanating from City Packers Ltd. located just outside the city limits near the exhibition grounds.

In addition, the city wanted the company to combine the rendering and meat packing plant operations on the site. The third and last choice left open, said Mr. Adams, is com- plete plant closure. A total shutdown would throw the company's 50 employees out of work in addition to leaving farmers and feedlot operators to dispose of animal carcasses. Last week The Herald learn- ed the company was allowing raw sewage from its rendering plant flow into a natural drain- age ditch. Mr. Adams said the flow into the ditch resulted when the nor- mal pipes carrying the sewage into treatment lagoons congest- ed, and the emergency outflow pipes were used. By Tuesday the lagoon pipes had been cleared. Police seek woman City Police are seeking the woman who drove a car in- volved in an accident Tuesday morning in the 1200 block o( 10th Ave. S.

Jim Foster, minister of ad- vanced education, said Pierre Juneau, chairman of the Cana- dian Radio-Television Commis- sion, told him federal aid was available but there has never been an application for assis- tance. There are only a few "hold- outs" that refuse to carry the children's program, said Mr. Foster. "It's a question of appealing to the local station to carry the program as a pubjic he said. "It's a matter of rais- ing enough local pressure to convince the station manager." The Sesame Street question was brought up in the legisla- ture by Jim Henderson (SC Wetaskiwin-Leduc) who asked if the government had been asked to provide public funds to television stations suffering "economic hardship" by carry- ing the program. Mr. Foster said it hadn't. CJOC-TV, and a CBC television outlet in Red Deer, Mr. Fosters riding, dropped Sesame Street this fall because of a CRTC ruling that there must be no advertising with the show. Spokesmen for CJOC-TV were unavailable for comment today. Food bill savings Co-op successful Members of a newly formed co-operative at the University of Lethbridge are enjoying an average saving of 20 per cent on their weekly food bills. John Mclnnis, a third year political science major at the U of L and a prime mover be- hind the group, says the 30 members pay 35 cents a dozen for eggs, honey costs 32 cents a pound and cheese sells for 74 cents a pound. The deals in a wide va- riety of products, including fruit, vegetables and canned goods. The organization held its first "dry run" recently and Mr. Mclnnis said it appears the venture is going to be a suc- cess. Each of the members receive a list of available foods and prices. They submit their order, along with the money to cover the purchase. CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental MKhanlc BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLDO. Lower Level PHONE 327-2822 25% OFF 1847 ROGERS BROS.
