Oct. 12, 1967 — BOYER ISSUE RESOLVED

The matter of truck use of Boyer Ave. was brought to some degree of determination after lengthy debate by the city council. Basically, the solution amounts to enforcement of existing 14,000 lb. load limit for Boyer and posting the street for elimination of truck traffic between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. This means loaded trucks must stay on Fifth Ave. as far as Larch and must use Larch enroute to the industrial area. Empty trucks meet the load limits and can travel the length of Boyer days but are prohibited after 8 p.m.

Bonner county’s apple production considerably increased shortly after midnight Sunday when a fruit special loaded with Yakima and Wenatchee apples, en route to the east, derailed at Algoma. Of a train of 43 cars, 22 from the middle of the train were thrown zigzag and piled up. This was the most expensive wreck the N.P. has had in this section for many years. The wreck scene, which was right at the “gravel pit” on level ground, was visited by many automobiles from here Sunday.
