Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, October 24, 1974 THE UETHBRIDOE HERALD 17 Late Yule shopping granted by council TABER (HNS) Late shopping has been approved on Wednesday afternoon and Friday evenings by town council, but the late hours will be allowed only through the Christmas season. The Taber Businessmen's Association re- quested the longer hours during the Christ- mas season, but it also confirmed its desire for continuation of the business control bylaw and enforcement of the bylaw. Three Taber businessmen have been charg- ed with breaking the bylaw. Association president Joe Orban Jr. said the decision was reached by a majority of the 21 businessmen attending a meeting Oct. 15. Other merchants presented alternate proposals on shopping hours. They asked longer hours during the entire year. One charged that the association is defunct and ineffective and does not represent the town's merchants. Council has accepted the TBA's suggestions as being representative of the business community. OTHER ACTION REFUSED Council refused to take action changing the law on a longer period of time partly because of the charges, which are to be heard Mon- day. Council hoped that the two factions will resolve their difficulties during the next two months and make another recommendation before the temporary late shopping permis- sion expires. New members of town council Cecil N. London and Donald G. Windrum were sworn into office by Justice of the Peace Frank Semaka at the meeting's opening. Approval by Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration officials of Taber's water supply expansion program to a maximum cost of million was reported to town council this week by Mayor Arthur H. A very. Agreements have now been forwarded to PFRA's head office at Regina, he said. Plans prepared by Reid, Crowther and Partners, Calgary, and local consulting engineer Bent N. Madesn have been approved by PFRA's technical sub committee, coun- cil was advised. Orders for long delivery material will be placed once financial approval of the Provin- cial Local Authorities Board is received. TOWN'S COSTS Of the total cost, the town will put up '000 for which approval has been requested from LAB this amount will be equalled by the senior governments under an agricultural service centre agreement between federal department of regional economic expansion and the provincial department of en- vironment. The town's water storage will more than double from 135 to 335 million gallons, and treatment plant capacity will be doubled to serve future growth and industry. Progress in replacement and enlargement of water lines was reported by Coun. Dennis M. Turin who said installation of the 10 and eight inch water line from the 51st St. treat- ment plant across the highway and railway tracks would proceed shortly. Council also considered a recommendation from the consulting engineer that the storm sewer collecting system downtown be altered to avoid crossing a multiplicity of water, gas and sewer service lines on the avenues. The proposal, which will be discussed further with those concerned, will see the main collecting line running east west on 50th Ave. with branch lines running south on the streets to ca.tch basins. COUNCIL ORGANIZED Oaths of office were also administered to Mayor Arthur H. A very and incumbent coun- cillors Mrs. Helen Wentz, Dennis M. Turin and Mike Powell. Coun. R. Bruce Milliken was unavoidably absent. Mike Powell was appointed deputy mayor for the six months November through April, and the three year tenure of office will afford each member of council to hold that position for a similar six month term. Mayor Avery and all members of council will comprise the finance committee, the mayor being an ex officio member of all other committees. All members of council will be the public works and operations committee with Mr. Milliken named general chairman, wijh the several responsibilities to be assigned to in- dividual councillors. The following committees were approved, first named councillor being chairman: fire councillors Turin and Windrum, recreation councillors Milliken and Powell, library Coun. Turin, health and London and Wentz, regional planning, in- dustrial development and airport coun- cillors Turin, Powell and Windrum, police Mayor Avery. A salary and wage committee will be set up at a later date. TOP VALUE SPECIAL! 3 bedrooms. 2 years old. Full basement, partly, finished.

The Herald- District Highway impact study conducted JACKIE GOULET OF THE ENVIRONMENT DEPARTMENT IS AMONG THOSE STUDYING THE-EFFECTS OF A.PROPOSED 4-LANE HIGHWAY THROUGH THE CROWSNEST PASS. Claresholm Mayor post to remain elective FRANK (CNP Bureau) A department of environment official told the Blairmore Lions Club here Monday night that the government is assess- ing the impact reconstruction of Highway 3 will have on en- vironment in the Crowsnest Pass area. Jackie Goulet formerly of Calgary and now employed by the department of the environ- ment on the Highway 3 Crowsnest Pass impact study, said the new highway in this area will be completed in 1977. She said the department of highways will soon complete the section at the east end of the 'Pass to Police Flats, one mile east of Bellevue. The department is working on that section now. Next year, the road will be built from the B.C. border east to a point just west of Coleman. The link between the two points will be connected in 1977. Ms. Goulet said a public meeting will be held, probably in the Crowsnest Pass Con- solidated High School Nov. 7, to organize a committee of 'Pass people to assist with the impact study. The study will include the effect of various possible locations of the highway through the 'Pass and the im- pact the location will have on wildlife, watersheds, grazing lands, mineral resources development and other forces in the area. Proper access roads to the towns concerned, landscaping the area, construction of sound barrier buffers in various locations and other factors will be studied. She said that a group of men is working at Edmonton now, doing a study on the effects the highway will have on wildlife and other factors. She said the study the local committee will make wiU be very important in locating and properly planning the highway. Goulet has an office at Coleman. Taber lawbreaking is higher TABER (HNS) Convic- tions in provincial judge's court here during September swung upward from 52 in August to 96 during the past month. A year ago, the number was 41. Criminal Code cases jumped from 10 to 28 over the month, including 10 charges of breaking, entering and theft, six of impaired driving, four of theft of goods over value, and a variety of mis- cellaneous offences. Night constable Murray Whitney apprehended four Lethbridge youths during an early morning break of premises on Highway 3. CLARESHOLM (HNS) One of Mayor Ernie Patter- son's first actions on regain- ing the mayoralty post here was to? move to ensure that Claresholm mayors be elected by the voters at large and not be appointed by council. The former council and former mayor Len Bach had approved a resolution for the Oct. 29 to Novr 1 Alberta Urban Municipalities Associa- tion convention at Edmonton that the government be urged to allow town councils to ap- point the mayors from among their own numbers. Council this week rescinded the former council's action and instructed the secretary treasurer to request the AUMA to withdraw the resolution. Council approved a motion that the mayor select a com- mittee to study bylaw 894 regarding councillor remuneration and expenses, and that the committee bring back its findings by Jan. 1.
