The re zoning, which may turned down on second or liird readings, is needed before ie project can go ahead. Council also gave first read- ing to a bylaw authorizing the losing of 4th Ave. S. just north of the site to allow the developer to integrate it into a arge parking let. Council last week tabled the question of closing 4th Aye. pending the preparation of re- lorts by various city depart- nents of what effect it would lave on such things as traffic flow in UK area. Alderman Vera Ferguson, ponsored last week's tabling motion, said she was concerned :at no action be taken until ie public had had an oppor- unity to study the reports and ed the curve the red marker on the main line switch, indicating the main rail line would run into the siding, was noticed. Apparently the train still had time to stop but there was some confusion as to why it didn't. A-possibility, the jury was tolct, was the fact the brakes had just been applied and re- leased as the train went around the curve and when the emer- gency brake was engaged the air pressure had not built up enough to work at full capacity. It was theorized the sudden realization of what was happen- ing might have delayed the application of the emergency brake. Apparently a switch being [eft open is very rare. Mr. Braat died instantly at the scene of the accident and Mr. Cook died about a.m. :hr next morning in hospital in Carmangay. The accident hap- rened about midnight. Mr. Cook was the engineer on the train. Mr. Braat was a rainman. onsider any possible alterna- ives. Aid. Steve Kotch noted that Jving first reading to the by- aw might motivate people to ecome concerned and take a immediate interest in the ituation than they might if it .-ere tabled for another week r so. Only first reading was given nd a public meeting will he eld on the bylaw before second and tliird readings. Damage In Accident Damage amounted to Monday when two half-ton tracks collided on Highway 61, 2% miles east of Stirling. Drivers of the two trucks were Arnold Haraga of Skiff and Luee Kovacs of Lethbridge. There were no injuries. By HERB JOHNSON Herald C% Hall Reporter Problems related to the city secondary sewage treatrne continued to be a thor n city council's side Mcnda as aldermen spent most of four hourp session wrestlin with capital and operatin costs and financing for th needed facilities. Following a lengthy close session at which representa lives of the consulting fin Undenvood McLellan and A sociates Were present, counc passed a resolution that a Ie ter be sent to Laing Construi tion and Equipment Ltd. Calgary that the city intends t give favorable consideration t awarding the contract to Lain for the construction of th plant, the major part of th sewage treatment facility. Tlie letter of intent does no constitute an actual awardin of the contract at this time However it is as close as coun cil felt it could come to aware ing the contract without jcop ardizing its chances of obtain ing funds through Centra Mortgage and Housing Corpor ation in 1971. In this regard, council passed a resolution requesting assurance from CMHC that might proceed with the award ing of the contract as soon as possible without prejudicing it: chances of getting a part o CMHC's allotment to Alberta in 1971. In essence, the resolution asks CMHC to waive a regula tion stating that no money wil be allowed for a project if an agreement is entered into to start construction before ap- proval is obtained for CMHC funds. There is not sufficient money left in the million qMHC al- lotment to Alberta for 1970 to cover the additional needed to build the treatment facilities. Loans through CMHC for the construction of sewage facili- ties have a 25 per cent for- giveness clause, making them the most attractive source of money for the city. First reading was also given to a bylaw authorizing the bor- rowing of the necessary 000. The bylaw still requires sec- ond and third readings. Council's problems were caused by costs for the second- ary sewage treatment facilities escalating from an estimated million to about mil- lion. An extension of the prov- ince's July 1, 1971 completion deadline to Sept. 1 has been granted, allowing a saving of over but unexpectedly high bids on the plant have left council with still to be found. The discrepancy between es- timates by Underwood McLel- lan and Associates and bids re- ceived were investigated by a committee made up of Alder- man Vaughan Hembroff and Alderman Hex Little. Aid. Hembroff told council he was satisfied, after meetings with the consultants and with the contractors, that the bids, all of which were fairly close, were realisic and that the costs were justified. Every possibility for cutting costs had been explored, h e said, with an absolute maxi- mum of possibly being saved through re-design and construction techniques. There are simply no drastic changes possible in the contract he said. Council also passed a motion by Aid. Rex Little that a reso- lution be prepared for presen- tation to the Alberta Urban Municipalities A s s o c i a tion meeting in October that the province give some form of tax incentive to industries install- ing pollution control equip- ment. He said that if industries go to the expense of putting in this type of equipment they are al- lowed accelerated depreciation on it by the federal govern- ment, but according to provin- cial regulations the city must still assess it and tax the in- dustry for it. The problem of how to share the cost of the facilities, men- tioned at last week's council meeting, will be discussed at a public meeting Oct. 5. A priv- ate meeting between the city engineering department and representatives of industry c n the subject is planned for Tues- day morning. Aid. Hembroff noted at last week's meeting that the ques- tion was that of coming up with a formula that would provide an equitable distribution be- tween the domestic user and industry. anufacturing Plant ill Seek Approval Approval in principle for a business forms manufacturing plant in Lethbridge mil be sought by Moore Business Forms at the meeting of the Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday.
