Complaints were heard of noxious weeds gaining a foot- lold along the CP Rail right- of-way south o{ Brocket. A resolution was brought !orth requesting that railways install reflectors on each side of box cars which can be seen by motorists at night, or, fail- ing this, that the railway install automatic signals at the cross- ing about eight miles east of Pincher Creek. A resolution was also passed that the MD press for an im- provement of the intersection of Highways 3 and 6 at Pincher Station.

DOING GOOD JOB Council was appreciative ol the efforts of workmen, under the direction of foreman John Oczkowski, in keeping roads cleared of snow. Tax collections have been good. Penalties are now ap- plied to unpaid faxes on Jan I, instead of March 1, as WR; previously done, thus resulting in a higher rate of collection. Public works projects com- pleted during 1971 included: 7.2 miles of paving, 14.8 miles of oiling and re-oiling; 25 miles of grading and 127 miles of gra- velling. The actual cash outlay for ;now removal during this win- ,er may be near For the years 1960-1970-1571 a surplus of was accumu- lated, By using a portion of this surplus and effecting some re- duction in public it is anticipated that the snow re- moval expenditure can be han- dled without an excessive in- crease in local taxes.

Budget discussions at the last meeting of the County School Commillee brought tome the realily of the siluation, and the en Us were found to be in- evitable in the light of the con- tinuing drop in enrolment in County schools. In the enrol- ment was 14M, hut a year later the figure bad dropped to 1391. Projected figures for Septem- ber, 10T2 indicate Die enrol- ment will be around 1336. As revenue is based on the number o( pupils in the school system, the drop in enrolment represents a serious cut in the county's revenue. A correspon- ding reduction in expenditure was therefore considered neces- sary. Since instructional salar- es are a major portion o! Iho mdget, reduction in the teach- ing staff was termed "inent- able" by Superintendent of Schools, Cliff Elle. The following reductions were approved: Bow Island Elemen- ary 1.2 teachers, Senator Gcr- shaw High School, Bow Island 2, Burdett 0.5, Corsrjtterville, Stzikom O.I, Foremost 2, 1. The reductions at eacii school were based pro- portionally on the amount of enrolment drop at that school. In line with the restrictive Budget the School Committee :lecided to take a serious look at bus transportation within the County. II i.s hoped that sav- ngs can be made by consolidat- ing routes and using buses with greater efficiency, without re- ducing the sen-ice to the pupils or Jcnglhenirig the time spent in travelling to and from school.
