Farmers 6balk' at cost-sharing By D'AHCV HICKAHD Herald District Editor CLARESHOLM Some Willow Creek Municipal District farmers are interested in water manage- ment projects until it becomes time to talk about cost sharing, Deputy Reeve Wallace Daley of Granum said Wednesday. Speaking to water resources branch officials Ron Knight and Wilf Lang, both of Lethbridge, at the regular MD council meeting, Deputy Reeve Daley said he doubtsdf farmers are interested in Pultney and Pine Coulee, drainage projects, west of Stavely. "They don't know exactly what they said the deputy reeve. Mr. Knight said the Pultney drain should not proceed until an outlet is provided from Clear Lake to the Little Bow River. "Would your council com- mit themselves to cost share this project over one, two, Ammonia tank authorized at CLARESHOLM (Staff) The Claresholm Fertilizer Company, operated by Ray Reichel of Claresholm, Wednesday was authorized by the Willow Creek Municipal 'District council to operate an anhydrous ammonia storage tank at Woodhouse, subject to approval of departments of highways and environment. The firm will operate its business at the present Claresholm Feed Service Ltd. premises at 5214 1st St. here. This firm is moving to a new plant on the south side of town. The storage tank has to be 250 feet from the nearest residence. Fumes caused by drainage of short connection lines soon dissipate into the air, said Mr. Reichel. Trucks will load at Woodhouse and transport the fertilizer to farm fields. three, four or five asked Mr. Lang. "I don't think said the deputy reeve. "It is the same deal as Pine Coulee." The water resources of- ficials outlined the government's position paper five on cost sharing of water management projects. Local authorities must initiate the projects. The department will share up to 100 per cent of the costs on the provision of a drinking water supply for communities but doesn't share the distribu- tion costs, said Mr. Knight. All the preliminary engineering costs, or half the cost of hiring an engineering consultant, are paid for minor drainage works projects. The local authority is responsible for 100 per cent of the costs of land acquisition. Capital costs are shared equally between the depart- ment and the MD. All capital costs are paid for major works. Mr. Knight said he has received some complaints about drainage problems in- volving Willow, Trout and Mosquito creeks. An MD proposal to take water from the Highwood River, run it through Mos- quito Creek, into Clear Lake and then into the Little Bow River would qualify for assistance as a major work, said Mr. Knight. It is es- timated as a project to stabilize the water supply and for recreational purposes and has been tentatively dis- cussed for some years. "There has to be a certain amount; of benefit to the province as a whole before they say it is a major said Mr. Knight, adding that his department does not par- ticipate in water based recreation projects. Council learned the Anderson drain at Stavely is now being surveyed. A water resources recommendation will come to council by the month end, said Mr. Lang. The MD must "carry the ball" for the people involved in these projects, he said. Pro- jects like Pine Coulee and Pultney. "Some land owners won't go for said Coun. J. William Burbank of Stavely. Said others: "That is right. It is kind of a stalemate. It's not very high on our priority." Lethbridge Northern Irriga- tion District water that spills down into the Willow Creek is causing problems on Arnold Dussen's property. "We haven't done anything on said Mr. Lang. "It was going to cost some said Coun. John Zoeteman of Fort Macleod. Council agreed to draw up a list of water management pro- jects for the department, listing priorities.

Schedule "A" of the bylaw proposes either 50, 60 or 70 cents a foot.' The bylaw states that the Uninformed 'most' do complaining CARDSTON (Staff) It is usually the people who know the least about Hutterite land acquisition who do the most complaining, Coun. Ken Beswick said Monday. Speaking to fellow coun- cillors at the regular Cardston Municipal District meeting, Coun. Beswick was com- menting on the amount of communal land holdings in various areas of Southern Alberta and the number of protest meetings various areas have held. There has not been one protest meeting in the Cardston MD since the com- munal property, act was repealed three years ago. Coun. Beswick asked MD secretary treasurer R. W. Legge what percentage of land farmed in the Vulcan area is held by the Hutterian brethren. He was told 1.82 per cent. Then Coun. Beswick made his comment, referring to protest meetings and the march on the legislature about two years ago protesting the repeal of the Alberta Communal Property Act. At Aug. 31, 1974, 12.22 per cent of the assessed value of land in the MD of Cardston was communal holdings, said Mr. Legge. "Of all pur land which is farmed, 10.88 per cent is he said. The figure is actually because some land is leased to Hutterites, he said. The Warner County has 8.01 per cent of its land in com- munal holdings and the Pincher Creek Municipal District, 5.17 per cent; Other percentages of assessed value were, Lethbridge County, 4.92 per cent; and County of Forty Mile, 3.36 per cent. "Some MDs don't have said Mr. Legge. special levy shall be in addi- tion to all other taxes. The bylaw would lake effect April 1 and would include provision for interest rates of up to eight per cent per year over 15 years. Coun. Stan Stoklosa, chairman of the streets com- mittee, said there would be a number of changes in the bylaw before it is .given se- cond and third reading. He said he expected the council would set the rate at 50? a foot but the rate could be changed from year to year as council saw fit. Areas to be included in the assessment are the business section of town and the residential streets from 48 to 51 avenues west and 49 to 52 avenues east. Town Council has had a proposal from the Greenbrook Development Co. of Calgary to set up and operate a mobile home park in. the northwest corner of town. The firm is principally own- ed by two employees of the engineering firm which does the engineering for the Town of Claresholm. Council passed a motion by Coun. Stoklosa that council saw no conflict of interest in "between the principals of Greenbrook Developers and the Town of Bill Tapuska presented to council a plan to develop a mobile home park. The proposal was for the town to provide service lines (water and sewer) up to the property as well as a lift station for the sanitary sewer. The property is owned by the Town of Claresholm and would be sold to Greenbrook. Council has passed a motion by Coun. Stoklosa to "endorse unaimously in principle" the proposal. Details of the proposal have been sent to each councillor.
