PiPPiilllllll TABER (HNS) - Reduced government grants and the Alberta property tax reduction plan were among matters of concern  at the recent MD council meeting. Council learned the municipal assistance grant, including the new incentives grant, would be $81,730 lower than last year. The municipal assistance grant last year was $429,15G, with no strings attached. Under the new formula, the 1973 grant is reduced to $268,-409. A municipal incentives grant of $78,917 will be.added to the assistance grant provided the MD does not increase its municipal millrate by more than 7.5 per,cent, or about one mill. The reduction in grants amounts to about six mills. It 2is offset by the provincial government picking up hospital and health unit costs. However, these costs have been collected as a separate millrate not included in the municipal levy. Unless consideration is given to a request by the Association of Municipal Districts and Counties that such costs become available to the local administration, the Taber MD will be short more than $80,-000 this year. This will result in a financial bind contrary to the publicity given the new program.
