The MD council, meeting with hospital administrator David P. Turtle, decided that local approval of those people so affected is needed. Mr. Turtle agreed that this matter had been overlooked when the application for co- terminality was made. The hospital board will meet with the residents in the area to ex- plain the proposal and seek approval. Meeting the council was Vauxhall Mayor Rev. James Lynn. Relations between the town and the MD were dis- cussed Council defeated a bylaw on its first reading to grant to the Taber Exhibition Association in support of the Aug. 17 community fair The council also refused to name a representative on Taber's In- dustrial Development Com- mittee, since no financial sup- port to industrial development is available from the municipal district. The council was advised that under agreement between the MD and the Department of Regional Economic Expansion, the water system at the hamlet of Enchant has been expanded by PFRA people from Fort Macleod at no cost to the MD. Stirling firemen buy truck WARNER (Staff) The Stirling volunteer fire depart- ment has received an advance of to purchase a used pan- el truck. It will be used to transport firefighters to fires and as a first aid vehicle. The Warner County council learned Tuesday the men had coming from their man- hour pay at an hour. They also have an hour for fire truck fees coming. It hasn't been paid for two years under a county plan that enables the men to build up a capital fund. CARDSTON (HNS) A delegation from the Cardston Co-operative Creamery proposed to town council this week that a milk control area be formed here. The delegation said a local dairy is finding it increasingly difficult to compete with out- side dairies the milk retail- ed here is 60 per cent Lethbridge milk compared to 40 per cent from the Cardston Co-op. High quality milk is produc- ed by a local dairy, the inspec- tor's report shows. Council was told that there is sufficient high quality milk produced by other dairies in this area to make the district completely self supporting. Mayor LeRon Pitcher and Coun. Robert Russell will meet with the Cardston Municipal District council to pursue the request. Following a discussion about land for light industry, a Land meet in January CRANBROOK (Special) A meeting with the B.C. Land Commission will be arranged for directors of the Regional District of East Kootenay to discuss its land reserve map, but not likely until January. At its late November meeting, the RDEK board was told the map is still with the intersector committee'of the environment and land use committee. That committee consists of regional govern- ment officials, in Cranbrook and Nelson. The map will be among the last in the province to be approved, allowing for the lifting of a general agricultural land freeze. The road north of St. Mary Lake, used by Crestbrook Forest Industries for log haul- ing and to be improved by their crews, will meet depart- ment of highways standards, the RDEK board was assured by Robert Brock, engineer with the B.C. forest service, in a letter received by the board. The road is also used as a public highway for residents of the area and recreationists. Notarized statements that an intention to subdivide had been substantiated before zon- ing became effective will be required by property owners in Elk Valley if they wish to proceed with subdivision not allowed by the zoning bylaw. The Elk Valley Land Protective Association was assured by the RDEK at the time the zoning bylaw was dis- cussed that agreements firm- ly completed before the zon- ing bylaw would be honored. However, now the RDEK is asking for solid proof of inten- tion. The zoning bylaw has been in effect about two years. The property of Dorothea Dean in Wilmer has been rezoned from Rl to Cl, allow- ing her to continue to run a centre for teaching quilting arts and serving meals to groups. The RDEK also has asked its planning department to make a study of future development of the Wilmer area, much of which is subject to flooding. A land use contract will be drawn up for the Wilkes and Kahn subdivision, just west of the city of Cranbrook. The property is now in a non urban zone, but its owners claim that it is not suited to other use than residential. The RDEK could require that a common water system be provided. Water availabili- ty has been one of its worries vis a vis the property. The RDEK will apply to have the Sylvan Lake area, just east of Cranbrook, designated as a regional park. The land is now in a park reserve, held by the provincial government. South In short Street realignment pending WARNER (Staff) The Village of Warner may have its main street realigned if Marathon Realty's subdivision applica- tion here wins approval from the Oldman River Regional Plann- ing Commission. Main street here jogs after it crosses the CP Rail tracks. The village could annex a small portion of land in block three and straighten the street, planner Bill Mclntyre told the Warner County council Tuesday. Blocks one, two and three are in this area. The county may ask the planning commission to place a restrictive covenant on blocks one and two so that it would have some say on any proposed development in the future. Al Petrie of Calgary, a member of Marathon Realty, the land development arm of the CPR, said the county would have this right regardless He said his firm did not favor any restric- tions on its holdings. He said Marathon would favor the street realignment and had received many such requests. Hillspring subdivision dying CARDSTON (Staff) The Cardston Municipal District council Monday agreed it has done all it can to promote an application by Reed Merrill of Calgary for a subdivision near Hillspring. It has been rejected by the Oldman River Regional Plann- ing Commission but council says the rejection makes no sense whatever. Mr. Merrill wants to build a residence south of Hillspring on a 45-acre parcel that is divided in four pieces. It has three canals running through it. "Is he going to asked secretary treasurer R. W. Legge. "I don't said Coun. Bryan Smith of Hillspring. "I haven't seen him since." Said Coun. Ken Beswick, council's representative on the commission: "Their prime reason for rejecting that was it didn't meet with the regulations. Although they didn't have any strong objection to it, since it didn't meet the regulations they didn't want to set a precedent." He said it was up to Mr. Merrill to re-apply.

Secretary Keith Bevans brought it back to council's attention, explaining that there is a grant available. He said the installation would cost about Council decided to proceed. Coun. Hugh Stewart, chairman of the recreation committee, said something must be done to check van- dalism at the Cardston Ice Centre. Coun. Glen Jones wondered if the solution might be to allow only ticket holders into the foyer.
