By IKIN cAt.mvF.i.i, licrald Sl.ilt Writer The educational finance pie may he cut differently, but the ingredients will remain much the same if a report to the pro- vincial government is adopted. The report of the Minister's Advisory Committee on Educa- tional Finance recommends that present money controls imposed en local school hoards IK lifted but new ones should be developed. The report also suggests that the plebiscite regulations be removed, which rnean.s that citizens would no longer have the jiower lo veto local requisi- tion increases. At the present time, if school boards find themselves faced with a budget shortage, they have lo gel permission of tax- payers before they can increase the mill rate.

The eity Mill soon place a le- gal notice in the newspaper in- forming the public that it in- tends lo borrow By MARM5NE COOKSIIAW Herald Slaff Writer Many clauses in a landlord- tenant contract wliich seem to favor the landlord in actuality are equally beneficial to tho tenants, says Jim McKinley, manager of Ashgrovc Apart- ments. Mr. McKinley was featured speaker at the fourth seminar of Problems in Renting, spon- sored by Wayne Clark, man- ager of Continental Apartments under Lhe Student Temporary Employment Program. Mr. McKinley agreed with the slatcment that the major- ity of Ihe clauses were slanted in the landlord's favor, "but the landlord is basically unpro- tected and has a lot more to lose lhan the tenant. "Most of the conditions arc striclly common court e s ies be said. "Tenants are protected from undesirable neighbors by the reslrictions normally placed on tenants." One calendar month's notice is required, preferably in writ- ing, lo announce either an in- tenlion to vacate or a notice of eviction. "This means Uiat Ihe notice must tie received before the beginning of Ihe month to be effective by the end of that said Mr. McKinley. "Not knowing this can often result in hard feelings. A ten- ant may give notice of his leaving on the first day of tho month, and technically the landlord could make him stay until the end of the following month, because the month's notice legally required Is a cal- endar month. "In the case of an apartment building, the manager has a commitment to Ihe owner to make n fair return, which can be done only hy keeping Ihe building he said, giving the owner's side of the reasons for sufficienl nolicc. The damage deposit held by the landlord must te returned to (lie lenant, either in full or with n statement of deductions plus interest, within 10 days after the tenant has vacated the apartment. If the tenant Is not satisfied with the results, he may lake his complaints to the small claims court. The cosl is mini- mal. An Important fact is that a damago deposit can used hy the landlord for repairs, while s security deposit may be used in lien of unpaid rent I and to cover cleaning expenses as well as for repairs. "The landlord usually makes his own guideline for judging said Mr. McKinley. He gave examples such as the decision lhat any stains on a carpet that shampooing would not remove was damage; and lhat in some cases the tenant was charged for all cleaning services while in others they were charged for cleaning re- quired after two hours. Mr. McKinley estimated that 50 per cent of tenants receive their damage deposit in full on leaving, 15 per cent have a de- duction of less the and the rest "have done substantial damage, often more than the deposit will cover." Another aspect ot damage was discussed: the situation where the tenant's property was damaged due lo a faull in the building. Mr. McKinley said this is an individual siluation, where some buildings carry an insur- ance policy covering such in- cidents, and some make the tenants liable for their own in- surance. "Where a tenant Is not being reasonably supplied with ser- vices for which he is paying, such as elevator service or air conditioning, the tenant may break a lease with relatively little problem In he said. A reference on a prospective tenant is immediately avail- able to a landlord from tho court bailiff. A copy of the Landlord-Ten- ant Act is available lo anyone for 35 cents by writing" the Queen's Printer in Edmonton. of control in this area lo pre- vent money hungry boards from going overlxaard at tho expense of local taxpayers. The report doesn't suggest any spe- cific controls. Dr. 0. P. Larson, publid schools superintendent, has sug- gested formation of a provin- cial board of reference to hear iccrning requisi- tion increases and with Uia power to approve or deny them. "If the government deems direct fiscal controls to be necessary, a system of pro- gressive fiscal controls should be introduced which would en- courage local expenditure mod- the report states. There Is also a suggestion (hat Ihe provincial government either reduce or eliminate prop- erty lax for education and re- gain the lost revenue through abolition of tho homeowner's grant and other sources. Tills could leave the door open for local school boards to step in and pick up the money which the provincial government once claimed in tax. The committee says the government should adopt the plan over a four-year period, subject to review every two years. Another major recommenda- tion of Ihe report is that the present maximum increase in classroom unit and support staff grants of six per cenl be- come Ihe minimum annual in- crease. That is, where six per cent is now the most a board can get for an increase, ttie re- port suggests it should become the leail. The report did not suggest a maximum. The committee's report, com- piled over the past 18 montlis, will provide Ihe framework for an educational finance plan to replace the three-year schema implemented in 1970 by the Social Credit government. The major concepts of tho old plan the foundation pro- gram and classroom unit grants would remain in ef- fect under the new proposal.
