Cranbrook awaits water decision CRANBROOK (Speci all-Refusal last November by the department of municipal affairs to approve a city debenture bylaw draft' for a proposed Moyie River water system has left this issue unresolved. The department contended user charge for the $4.1 million project should be considered only as an alternative to a frontage tax charge. The five-year interim wells system of 1970 at $600,000 raised the average user fee from under $3 a month to $5.50. The city bylaw would raise this user fee to nearly $9. Ramifications of a frontage tax are being investigated toward a structure that would take into consideration the increasing number of multi-unit services and also undeveloped frontage with no users. Committee switch to the Moyie - based system, seven miles west of the city, from the now-functioning Joseph-Gold $3 million development took ratepayers by surprise last fall. ' Associated Engineering Sar-vices consultants have meticulously and impartially investigated all alternatives with statistical analysis of population, quality and costs. The city has no engineer of its own and is now considering further consultation toward a firmer costs figure. Consultant detailed report of AES in 1963 termed the system then as "committed" and recommended improve m e n t implementation "as soon as possible." Department veto in 1969 of a $2.3 million debsnture bylaw for initial phases of the Joseph-G o 1 d proposal termed the amount "beyond the city's means." A subsequent $600,000 interim wells system which led to the 60 per cent user fee increase has been in operation. Present system is based on a Joseph Creek reservoir just beyond city limits, augmented when necessary by flow from a dam on Gold Creek several miles up Joseph Creek for diversion of east-flowing water. Sub - urban development above this reservoir has strung out now almost to the ranch-canyon site bought by the city for the much enlarged upstream reservoir as future supply. Further development for first phases of this is now estimated at more than $3 million. The Moyie' - based system would start from scratch. Since 1968 a number of federal and provincial sources of financing on long-term low-interest basis have become available for such projects, together with Municipal Finance Authority, but Cranbrook taxpayers are increasingly anxious about the final outcome of this city utility.
