place where the dust is bad Agreeing to the warning letter Coun McFall said, 'Unless you do something you don t get any action It is time something was done We have been listening to this for a long long time Said Coun Nattrass "All vou've got to have is those fellows hauling for one day and the road is just full of holes It just gets pounded out He said a pipeline out of the area would save the roads but oil firms say present tax policies prohibit them going to -the expense At the same time, council read a letter from a firm that promised not to send its trucks over Secondary Road 501 It had used the road near its junction with the Comrey road in the Manybernes area by mistake One of its drivers was new and unfamiliar with regulations Coun Nattrass said the only solution is for the provincial government to step in and build a truck route "We have to build a route they can travel he said Our roads just can't be used as a truck route Coun Frank Romeike said the minister of highways should also be reminded the province is taking the tax revenue from the trucks while the county tries to keep its road repaired without suf- ficient revenues He said the industrial nature of the economy re- quires that the oil must move A solution to the road problem is vital, he said NAMED AFTER SETTLER The Mclntosh apple is named for farmer John Mclntosh whose 1811 settlement grew into

feet deep in Forty-Mile Coulee, six miles southeast of Bow Island Coun Bill Gejdos of Skiff, chairman of the county agricultural committee brought the matter up when he said the committee dis- cussed the revitalization of the Granlea Reservoir Said Coun Romeike Don't we as a local govern- ment get a complimentary copy9 I would think they would have the courtesy to drop the county a letter (telling) of the proposal It is our people that are involved It is our area that is in- volved Coun Ed Torsher said "It is a proposal by the depart- ment of the environment Said Coun Romeike "The point I am making is it might be a matter of common courtesy as we are involved Said Coun Marg Dragland of Conquerville ''I am curious of what their plans are how it will affect the area "It is just a proposal for far in the said Coun Russell Scratch of Foremost 1 It is not even a proposal, just a said Coun William Kenneth Babe "Just like there is a plan for acres to be said Coun Scratch "It has been a plan for 20 years all in snit drawn up and ready to go Coun William George McFall of Etzikom said he knew of another plan to irrigate south of Etzikom coulee that is at least 30 years old and was completely sur- veyed 'They even have a plan to drain Pakowki Lake into the South Saskatchewan said Coun Lyle Nattrass of Manybernes FOREMOST (Staff) The County of Forty-Mile council has decided to hire a utilities officer whose salary and ex- penses will be paid by a 000 per annum provincial government grant Council has reversed its long-time refusal to hire a utilities officer largely because Coun Frank Romeike of Seven Persons refused to let the matter he His arguments held sway at this month s meeting and a committee comprised of coun cillors Ed Torsher William George McFall and

that com- pleted and ready to go by next spring He said irrigation farmers are eager to tap the line He said his own propane bill is annually Natural gas at 50 cents a thousand cubic feet would tally a bill of and gas at 60 cents would tally a bill of Therefore the present propane user, switching to natural gas would save about which would go to pay off the capital costs incurred he said Coun Rorneike said Palmer Engineering builder of manv new systems is being held up bv a shortage of steel and has gone as far as Japan to trv and find some Coun Romeike suggested that an official of the Forty- Mile Gas Co-operative be included in the committee that will hire the utilities of ficer Council rejected the suggestion on the basis that it was entirely the county s responsibility Coun Russell Scratch ap- parently bewildered bv the number of co-ops and the fact they overlap into other coun ties asked Why did they make the grant available to the county when the boun- daries (with the co-ops) are not co-terminus9 Coun Romeike reminded him that the utilities officer is also responsible for oversee- ing the installation of utilities other than natural gas He also suggested the officer be based at Bow Island At the same time Coun McFall emphasized that if problems occur in natural gas co-ops the Public Utilities Board will act quickly if it is contacted by private citizens
