Sewage plant plans laid RED DEER ICP) Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. has accepted tentative plans for construction of a S2.25 mil- lion sewage treatment plant, Mayor R. E. Barrett announced here. Mr. Barrett said the provin- cial government will pay million towards Uie cost and the city will receive a rebate of when the plant is completed.
