Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, September LETHBRIDQE HERALD -19 Re-election not sought by mayor CLARESHOLM Mayor L. J. Bach will not seek re- election this fall, he said in a news release Wednesday, citing a list of ac- complishments since he was elected to the office. He said he has attained the goals which first prompted him to seek office Noting "very adverse op- position" from a the mayor said he feels few Claresholm residents are aware of his administration's accomplishments. Ernie Patterson, who was MAYOR L. J. BACH disqualified by the Alberta Supreme Court from finishing his term as mayor last year, has announced he will run for the office in the Oct. 16 civic election. Mayor Bach said he will en- dorse a candidate, but will wait until nomination day, Sept 18, to do so He declined to name the candidate Among the ac- complishments cited by Mayor Bach are a "good relationship" with the Willow Creek Municipal District and the industries at Claresholm, of a project co ordinator and the adoption of a new administrative plan along provincial guidelines, approval of a mobile home subdivision, the obtaining of a provincial grant for the reconstruction of 43rd Avenue and the approval of the first stage of a water expansion system; sanitary sewer system in early construction stages and will eventually eliminate the sewage lagoon south of town, while a storm sewer application is nearing approval and may be installed on 2nd Street grant obtained to im- prove the airport runway and additional industry added to the airport; has been nam- ed the pilot project for the province's urban vegetation control program, relations again exist between the Alberta Health Care Centre and council, the mayor said He attributed the improved relations between the city and health establish- ment to the efforts of himself and some councillors Student centre helped youths find employment WARNER (Staff) The student manpower project at Milk River, given a grant by council earlier when it re- quested a grant, reported Tuesday that it could be even more successful if it began operating earlier. When school is out contact with the students who need jobs can be lost, Marilyn Selk of Milk River said. She opened the student man- power office at Milk River May 15 and kept it open five hours each day until Aug. 2. She received for wages. She was given an office and the Town of Milk River supplied her with supplies. The purpose was to find jobs and she did, placing girls and boys on area farms and in town jobs. Warner was the hardest centre in which to make progress, because peo- ple there are faced with long distance telephone charges and this could have hurt the service, she said. "That's a good said Coun. Murray Holt of Raymond. "Well it must do a certain amount of said Coun. Ed Pittman of Milk River. "Yes." said Coun. Elda Mueller of Wrentbam, "I think her idea of starting it early is a good thing." George Roberts, secretary treasurer of the Town of Milk River, praised the work and said county areas were helped as much as the towns and villages. Girls were placed on farms as domestic helpers and boys found jobs as farm workers Said Miss Selk: "It helps the students who need money to finance their future schooling, also people who can't find peo- ple to fill jobs." She made posters, talked personally with every business owner in town, sent out letters to every businessman, and then made new posters and moved them around in the hope more peo- ple would read them. School officials were helpful and allowed her to use duplicating and other equipment "I feel that many students got jobs as a result of the advertising methods I she said. There was one major stumbling block. Many people, thinking along the lines of the Opportunities for Youth program, wanted workers for odd jobs and hesitated to pay. "I found it very difficult to convince these people that OFY funding may not be in ex- istence next she said. are the ANSWERS for your NEWS QUIZ PART I: 1 -Guinea-Bissau; 2-c; 3-a; b; 4-False: 5-deficit PART II: 1-e; 2-a; 3-b; 4-d; 5-c PART III: 1-c; 2-a; 3-d; 4-e; 5-b PICTURE QUIZ: James A.

Lee Anderson County backs on New Daytonplan By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor WARNER (Staff) The County of Warner council Tuesday decided to reverse its Aug. 14 decision on a plan for the development of New Dayton. Tuesday council decided to rescind its request to the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission that the planners draw a plan for the overall development of New Dayton. At the same time, some councillors expressed doubt that Lethbndge developer Ted Rudd will go ahead with a plan to put all 50 outstanding New Dayton lots into a mobile homes hamlet Council learned Tuesday that Mr. Rudd has applied to buy 6.29 acres between Front St. and the railroad tracks from Marathon Realty, the CPR's subsidiary real estate holding firm, to use as a sewage lagoon. A major drawback to Mr. Rudd's plan to develop mobile homes sites in the hamlet is that each home must have 000 square feet of land for a septic tank field. This area could be larger if the local board of health decided the soil was not con- ducive to a square foot field. Mr Rudd asked council to table the development plan until he knows if his sewage lagoon plan can proceed. "I don't think a lagoon could possibly be accepted this close to the said Coun Ed Land consolidation called for WARNER (Staff) -Land to be sold by Willard Paxman of Raymond should be con- solidated into one parcel so an access road won't be needed, the Warner County council decided Tuesday. The land, classified as marginal, is about three miles north of Raymond. Coun Don Christensen of Stirling, council's represen- tative on the Oldman River Regional Planning Com- mission, said if the parcel is not consolidated an access road will be needed. Coun Murray Holt advised against the access road because of a drainage problem he foresees. Pittman of Milk River. "No one would go for it The Oldman River Regional Planning Commission is "afraid of the concentration of 40 units in there with septic said Coun. Don Christensen of Stirling, The provincial health department is against the development "until such time as water and sewer services are say the planners. "The sale of lots should be say the planners. Stirling is already developed and offers services. This drew a sharp rebuke for the planners from Coun. Ed Pittman of Milk River "The people that live in that community, they can't appreciate that kind of at- said Coun Pittman "Do you want to tell them, 'go over and live over at The provincial plumbing inspector at Lethbridge said tanks raise the possibility of contamination, "roads and lanes become soft and the whole situation becomes unsatisfactory." He said septic tank lots must have a minimum width of 80 feet, or if on a corner, not less than 100 feet. Each lot must be not less than 125 feet long Some of the New Dayton lots in question are only 25 feet wide. The plumbing inspector said 40 residents would require 000 gallons of water every day. Hamlet residents now truck their water m from Ray- mond or Warner the hamlet has no water system A water system would require filtra- tion and chlorination Council was advised from this source that "development in New Dayton should be limited to a few well separated buildings." The inspector said he is not in favor of 40 units in a congested area "The developer is soon gone with his money but the county is stuck with the his letter said. The public health inspector advised council "septic tanks would only lead to serious nuisance and pollution problems Taber hay plan moves quickly TABER (HNS) Fast action is expected in the purchase of two additional wheel move irrigation systems for Taber's sewer lagoon hay crops following approval by the town council Councillor Mike Powell reported a committee recommendation to procure wheel move systems in preference to a pivot type on the grounds of economy and better coverage. Invitational tenders are being called and purchase will be made by the farm lands committee. Council also agreed to investigate further the need for commercial fertilizer supplements to sewage, in order to improve the alfalfa on a number of low production areas in the 160 acre crop. Members of council also heard a report by councillor Dennis M. Turin that work on water main replacement in the business district should be completed by the target date of September 30. Work has now started on the last leg on 48 Ave. from 57 St. to 53 St. Crews will then be directed to complete the eight inch and 10 inch line connecting the business district to the south treatment plant, the line on 51st St. to run from 47th Ave across railway and highway rights of way. to 42nd Ave. Council expressed some concern over the delays encountered in the storm sewer installation up town, fearing that if work continues into freezing weather, there would be improper compaction and resultant spring boils on the streets To provide funds for street paving next year, council approved an application to the Alberta highways and transport department for the five year grant of OPEN HOUSE Sunday for flwMMtft of 1 p.m. 5 p.m. View the fine line of Baldwin Pianos and Organs BERTI SCHOOL OF MUSIC 2646 S.
