Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 19, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta South in short Fire guardians appointed CLARESHOLM (Staff) Willow Creek Municipal District Assistant General Foreman Bill Gatenby, Assistant Secretary treasurer Warren Valstead, Agricultural Fieldman Richard Berringer and Assistant Agricultural Fieldman Gerald Cofield were appointed fire guardians Wednesday by the MD council. The lands and forests fire prevention act calls for the ap- pointments. These men are authorized to issue fire permits from April 1 to Oct. 31. Urban post service pushed TABER (HNS) The possibility of an urban postal delivery service here is slim but the Taber and District Chamber of Commerce is working toward that end. A rural delivery service may come sooner, chamber of- ficials say. It is unlikely that urban delivery can be instituted now because drops are required for this service. A rural delivery service can be instituted if petitions are signed by residents in areas affected. Contacts are being made by the chamber on at least one possible route. Taber market considered TABER (HNS) Is it feasible to establish a farmer's market.here? The Taber and District Chamber of Commerce agriculture committee, headed by Lynn S. Grant, is going to answer that question. An Alberta department of agriculture grant of up to is available to finance the chamber's feasibility study. Mr. Grant says his committee will survey producers in this area. It will be determined if they are interested in bringing produce to a fanner's market for direct sale to consumers. Several successful markets in this province operate one day each week, Taber chamber officials have learned. Little britches rodeo Aug. 4 NANTON (Special) The annual Little Britches Rodeo will be held here Aug. 4 as part of the Lost Lemon Mine Day celebration. Wid Ransome of the Nanton Booster Club told the organizational meeting that it is difficult to get bands for the parade. Commendations planned for Macleod groups FORT MACLEOD (Staff) The Fort Macleod Chamber of Commerce, Lions, Lionettes, Rotarians and women's curl- ing club will be commended by letter, council decided Monday night, for good com- munity work in sponsoring luncheons. The Fort Macleod Auction Market Ltd. will be offered a chance to rent Canada Winter Games bleachers, now in the curling rink here, for J25 a month. Coun. Jim Coutts, chairman of the water committee, told council he is dealing with a number of frozen water ser- vices these days. "We have got to get people to realize when this warm weather com- es along, that is the time peo- ple have to keep their taps running." It will take about a year to obtain a new transformer for equipment for thawing pipes, he said. Garbage collector Art Bohle is being asked to dp the im- possible, said Coun. Ralph Webb, in the way of emptying bottomless garbage cans. Council agreed Mr. BoMe should refuse to service dif- ficult cans. These should be reported to the town office. A pack of dogs is forming on 10th St. here but Coun. Webb hopes they won't be turned into-the town pound because they will "freeze to death" (in the Instead, he hopes the dogs will be nabbed and detained by complaining citizens. In this regard, Mayor Charlie Edgar said: "I see other towns have sure raised their dog licences." Coun. Ian Bennett said there should be no crackdown on dogs until people have had a 'chance to remember to buy their licences. Council decided to form a committee to study the possibility of a licensing bylaw here but Coun. John Viens said "I would like to see all towns get together and do away with it. It just leads to Other towns have licence fees of and higher for visiting tradesmen and, "If they can do it, why the devil can't asked Coun. Webb. Lydia Hatton will be advis- ed that lot 36 on the north side of 17th St., west of 5th Ave. will be offered for sale as a site for a small house. She applied to purchase it as a garage site. Mrs. Hatton will also be advised that her house does not infringe on this lot. The Fort Macleod Lionettes Club will be officially notified by letter that the old library building has been assigned to them by council for storage purposes. Council accepted the Cana- dian Western Natural Gas Company offer to sell its natural gas engine, used for making ice in the local arena, for The engine is about four years old and will be used by the town as a pumping unit, possibly for fire protection at the industrial airport site. The offer included "no rental costs" for 1975. Statues still missing FORT MACLEOD (Staff) Still no Jerry Potts, no Crowfoot and no Col. James Macleod. These are the life size statues town coun- cil ordered months ago for its RCMP Centen- nial celebrations last year. The celebrations are over but still, no statues. "What about our Town Ad- ministrator Roy White asked at the regular council meeting Mon- day night. "They are standing said Coun. Jim Coutts. "We ordered them in August, 1973, and we were promised them in nine months which would have been June, said Mr. White. "We haven't received anything." Council ordered the statues from an Ed- monton sculptor at a price of each. He has been paid of requested. The RCMP Century Committee is also interested in these works of art. The com- mittee provided in grant money to get them sculpted, about half the cost. Coun. Ian Bennett said he would try to locate the artist during an upcoming trip to Ed- monton. February II, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 New ambulance delivery expected in March FORT MACLEOD (Staff) The new town ambulance may be delivered the first week in March; town council learned Monday night. It has been purchased from a Red Deer firm for about "The chassis is supposed to be delivered Friday and then modifications will be said Coun. John Viens, chairman of council's am- bulance committee. "It could be the first week in March before we get it." Meanwhile, the old am- bulance had to be retrieved last week from Calgary, where the generator burned out. "We will have to determine a policy for out of town said Coun. Viens. Town Administrator Roy White assured Coun. Ian Bennett easements are being checked thoroughly for a water line that will run from the water tower to the in- dustrial airport. Town solicitor Ron Jacobson of Lethbridge is drafting a leasing agreement form for mobile home court tenants. Leasing prices were not divulged. Mayor Charles Edgar serv- ed a notice of motion that he will ask for an increase in councillor fees at the March 3 meeting. The mayor is now paid and each councillor per meeting. The mayor said this is not fair "because if you miss a meeting you don't get paid." Joe Hornberger was reap- pointed town weed-inspector. "Don't let him look at quipped Coun. Phil Hodnett. Council learned its letter to a citizen who parks a school bus on 5th Ave. near 21st St. is being disregarded. The re- quest that he not park the bus there will be reaffirmed.
