Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, August Cranbrook water rates may increase soon By NANCY MILES Special Correspondent CRANBROOK Facing up to the fact the city's million water improvement now under way must be paid for, a bylaw is being drafted for two facility revenue sources toward amortiz- ing the debt over either a 20, 25 or 30 year period. A memo of the basic bylaw contents has been prepared by city treasurer Daryl Bottorff for the revised consumer and fron- tage rates. The basic alternatives are to increase the user rate Jan. 1, 1975 and retain the surplus for future capital expenditure and increase rates again in 1976; or increase the rates the same initial date with the surplus to be reserved to supplement the water utility fund to meet the annual debt repayment, amounting to a maximum of There must be a frontage annual tax rate to owners of 75 Cents a running foot from the minimum 50 feet to a maximum of 130 feet. This would apply to all land parcels whether connected to the system or not if the supply connection is viable. This now totals feet. Then Mr. Bottorff suggests the entire rate basis be removed from its present classification gauged by the function of the property supplied. The basic classification would be residential units of 1.000 square feet, whether single or multiple dwelling units. S7.75 per month, then a rising scale according to the floor space and func- tion of the commercial-industrial property supplied. There would be an additional per year for a swimming pool. The city treasurer also suggests the city may install meters in any or all premises whose consumption can be extraordinary. These would be hospitals, car washes, farms and apartments. For these, meter account rates would be proposed at 65 cents for the first gallons per quarter, gradually dropp- ing to 57 cents over the next gallons. The meter rentals charge is proposed to amortize the meter cost in eight years. The bylaw is now being tentatively discussed by city coun- cillors and officials. Police want South in Short role in society D0g show set this week CRANBROOK (Special) "Give the policeman his role back he wants to be out with the Jack Cram, vice-chairman of the Justice Development Commission, said here recently. Speaking to a recent meeting of judicial workers, Mr. Cram said ideas are wanted from private citizens on any aspect of the justice system. "We are concerned with he said. Commission members Fran Prevost and R. J. Lemiski also attended. Mr. Cram is in charge of the courts, Mr. Prevost is in charge of planning of the courts facilities and Mr. Lemiski is director of special courts projects. The commission was ap- pointed by the attorney general's office to review the present justice system. The review will cover the welfare and proper functioning of each department in the system, ad- ministering of justice, ad- ministration, and actual building facilities. It was an opportunity for local participants in the judicial system to air their views and opinions. OPENING SOON! in CENTRE VILLAGE MALL Mr. Cram said better court facilities and a law library are needed here. New sheriffs are being brought into the area in the next few months. They will take on major duties to relieve police of- ficers in the courtroom. They will lock up and escort prisoners, handle court security and present documents to the court. This will put policemen "out with the people." The Kootenays will receive a local remand centre, said one commission member. At present, an accused person is taken to the West Coast to await trial. A commission member said these people are presum- ed innocent and should be placed in quarters, unlike a jail, which will allow them to be close to their families and easily accessible to their lawyers. Another major concern of the commission and local judicial representatives is the low amount of public involve- ment in the judicial system. One local lawyer said, "The public seems to think the ac- cused is guilty until proven in- nocent." This is contrary to law which states the accused rs innocent until proven guilty. People at large must be made aware it is their right to watch court proceedings. They must be encouraged to do so, said several people attending. CRANBROOK (Special) The Cranbrook Kennel Club will hold its Championship Dog Show Saturday and Sunday at the Mount Baker High School here.

Sunday another variety of breeds will be shown.
