Phone 327-3712 NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY I Regional planners finance plan hit TABER (HNS) Taber's town council recently accepted the requisition for 1971 as its share of financing the Oldman River Regional Plan- ning Commission, but was un- animous in its opposition to a proposed "foundation plan" to finance regional missions in the future. The foundation proposal, pre- sented at the last annual meet- ing of Alberta Urban Munici- palities Association by Munici- pal Affairs Minister Colborne, would provide for a provincial levy in much the same way as the school foundation, but on less than a uniform scale. Council agreed that the pro- posed charges were inequit- able in relation to services ren- dered, since centres at which regional planners operate ob- tain a greater proportionate use of the commission's ser- vices. The proposed rates, based on equalized assessments, are: cities with over popula- tion 0.02 nulls, since they have their own full staff planning departments; cities between and people 0.45 mills; from to 0.40 mills; from to 0.30 mills; and under 0.20 mills. Safety clinic held for riders of snow rigs PINCHER CREEK (Special) The Mountaineers Snowmo- bile Club of Pincher Creek and district held a safety clinic re- cently with some 50 people in attendance. Two local RCMP members AMA safety counsellor, an in- surance man and two local club members formed a panel. Safety was stressed. Com- plaints about people snow- mobUing on town roads and chasing wild game in the coun- try were heard. With the breaking of these laws there will be no other alternative but to make tougher laws. The club was approached by the Knights of Columbus to hold a "fun day" at Beauvais Lake Sunday. Feb. 14, for the purpose of giving rides to all children. The local Boy Scouts also approached the club for trans- portation to Camp Impeesa for the purpose of winter camping. Attend clinic TURIN (HNS) Mrs. Leon- ard (Vicky) Dunn and Mrs. Lawrence (Pat) Deimuth, re- cently apnointed conveners of women's sports for this area, attended a women's keep fit clinic at the YMCA, Leth- bridge, recently. A weekly exercise program will be starting here The new schedule would practically double the assess- ment on the town of Taber. The requisition for J971 is up above last year, but it is below the comparable figure for 1969. The AUMA executive sought the opinion of the council prior to Feb. 24, with an indication that Mr. Colborne would intro- duce legislation this year for implementation of the founda- tion plan.
