Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Fort Steele needs development plan CRANBROOK The 63.65-acre Wildhorse across Highway 93-95 from Fort may be add- ed to the Fort Steele Historical Park. But regional planner Eugene Lee says it is doubtful that the park needs another 63 acres of land to accommodate its operations. He says a com- prehensive development plan is in order. Directors of the Regional District of East Kootenay recently decided to support in principle purchase by the Fort Steele Historical Park of the nearby ranch. The board's action is based on a report by the planner. RDEK support is dependent on three That the provincial govern- ment develop a comprehen- sive development plan which would show the total develop- ment concept and land re- That all small private holdings now inside the park be And that the park show its capability in the proper maintenance of the existing park property. Fort Steele officials have suggested that the ranch could levy disputed Shell tax appeal decision delayed PINCHER CREEK In a court hearing of Shell Canada Ltd. vs. The Municipal District of Pincher Creek No. Justice of the Supreme Court of Alberta reserved a decision on an appeal of a supplementary tax levied by the Municipal District of Pincher Creek in 1972. Shell Canada Ltd. appealed the tax levy imposed on Shell Waterton Plant No. which went into production in December of 1971. At that Plant No. 2 was not tax- able for the year as Provincial Tax legislation re- Ambulance carried 165 FINCKER CREEK With the comple- tion of its second half of a full year's the Pincher Creek Fire Brigade report shows that from 1972 to 1973 a total of 165 patients have been conveyed by ambulance to medical treatment centers over a distance of miles. Despite the discontinuation of ambulance service for the Peigan Reserve during the past the increase in use by residents of the Town of Pincher Creek and the Municipal District of Pincher Creek has resulted in a de- mand for the service nearly equal to that of previous years. During the December- November the local unit was despatched to the Brocket area on 13 occasions at the request of the R.C M.P Special school project begins PINCHER CREEK St. Michael's School has embarked on a special program funded joint- ly by the Provincial Depart- ment of Education and the Federal Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. The program will consist of expanding opportunities for the individual child through the assistance of teacher- audio visual equipment and small groups. Oppor- tunities for the classroom teacher to observe programs elsewhere will be provided quired that the plant must have been completed or in operation prior to October 1971 An amendment to the Municipal Taxation Act in 1972 permitted municipalities to pass a Supplementary Assessment Bylaw and tax new improvements for that portion of the taxation year the improvement was com- pleted or in operation. Shell Canada Ltd interpreted that the new legislation should not apply to Plant No as it was com- pleted in not the 1972 tax year. They also pointed out that the amending legislation was not in effect until June 1972. The Municipal District argued that the plant was in operation for the full tax year and it. therefore taxable for the full year. The argument centers on the interpretation of the word in the 1972 Statute A decision is expected by the end of the year Business licences mulled BLAIRMORE If Blairmore coun- cil adopts a bylaw regarding revision of iocai business licenses a basic rate of per year will be established in the New Year. Complaints registered with council by a number of local business firms regarding the variation in business license rates being charged to local business forced council into studying the structure. It was recommended that the rate be adopted for local business houses and a license for non local business. The local rate would cover all business from Lundbreck to the Alberta-B boundary who do business in Blairrnore If the new rate structure is passed the town stands to lose about per year in license revenue Business licenses now realize approx- imately revenue for the town where the new system would only bring in Crowsnest Pass Bureau Vcrnon 562-2149 Report your news to....
