Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 20, 1974-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-21 Town adopts policy of prepaid services COALDALE (HNS) A prepaid servicing policing has been adopted by town council. Specification must be wor- ked out by agreement between the town and developer. Council requested town administrator Rae Yamasaki to ask Stanley Associates Engineering Ltd. to draft a sample agreement for council's consideration. The engineering firm, represented by Rolf Johnson and Frank Ducel, recently submitted the report to council on the advantages of prepaid services. Prepaid services are now common in many communities, council was told. Prepaid services in town will include water and sewer, r V extensions, hook-ups, paving, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, gravelled lanes and underground wiring. sought Greenbelt land work could tie up planner CRANBROOK The Regional District of East Kootenay directors are concerned that their planner is going to be unduly tied up suggesting priorities for land that the provincial government may purchase for greenbelt. Planner Eugene Lee will make a list of available land that might be suitable so that the board can make a recommendation. W. T. Lane, B.C. land commissioner, said his commission will be responsible for making purchases with funds set aside for greenbelts. Mr. Lane asked the RDEK to "suggest by letter four or five priority properties to assist us in our initial sorting of sites. In making your selection it would be well to remember that as a rule of thumb we anticipate spending about per capita in each region for the initial purchase or purchases." This would amount to for the RDEK. Lloyd Sharpe, Area B director and a finance committee member of the RDEK, said, "I'm worried that the planner's time may be wasted for COALDALE (HNS) An interest has been shown here for a drop-in centre for senior citizens. W. D. Geldert, recreation director for the south Oldman recreation board and John Boon, director of social services and preventive social services for the Barons- Eureka Health Unit, have been concerned for some time about the lack of facilities here for oldtimers. The town and surrounding area have a large population of senior citizens. It was felt a senior citizens' organization would be of tremendous benefit. Recently a meeting was held between concerned senior citizens, Mr. Boon and Mr. Geldert. The senior citizens appointed a committee to lay the ground work for a centre comprised of R I. Baker, Dorothy Pickering and Edna McVeety. The Herald District Ratepayers9 attendance is low at MD meetings TABER (HNS) A survey completed by the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties, says 27 counties and 14 MDs'that held annual ratepayers' meetings last year reported an average attendance of slightly over 50 people. In 1973, three councils and four MDs did not hold annual meetings, a convention now made optional under the Alberta Municipal Governments Act. The survey shows that this year 22 counties and 12 Mds will hold meetings; five counties and four MDs will not; and three counties and two MDs are yet undecided. The Taber MD is one that will hold a ratepayers meeting this year, now scheduled for p.m. March 20 at the Canadian Legion Hall. With past attendances near the 50- mark, the question of continuing the meetings may well be discussed. The ratepayers' meeting will hear a letter from chief municipal inspector J. M. Fleming advising that a heavy work load on the inspection staff last year made it impossible to have a municipal inspection of the MD during 1973. At its recent meeting, the MD council authorized all members of council and senior administrative staff to attend the spring convention of the AAMDC to be held in the Macdonald Hotel, Edmonton, April 3 and 4. Indications are that at least six will be in attendance. Conservatory branch likely Grant goes to pool project NEW DAYTON (HNS) The New Dayton recreation board has decided to give its recreation grant to the Milk River recreation board'for its swimming pool project. The northern area grant will be turned over to the Raymond Ice Centre project. Twenty-one members learned the old Boy Scout room has been torn out of the stadium and the lumber sold. VERN DECOUX photo Skiing casualties Keeping up with the Jones can be fun when it comes to cars and furniture, but it's pretty painful when you have to break-a leg to keep up with your neighbor- hood buddy. Brian Dobek, left, and Larry Trudeau, both of Blairmore, talk over their woes as they met on the main street in town Saturday morning. The two 13 year old youths were on a ski trip to Fernie, B.C., recently when the mishaps occurred.

Tom Hutchison of Invermere. Elkford and the area directors will name their alternates for appointment at the February meeting of the RDEK. Aid. Broadhurst will be the RDEK's representative on the East Kootenay Union Board of Health. A general request from the RDEK that more help be given regions for planning functions was answered by James Lorimer, minister of municipal affairs, who said the matter of increased financial assistance is being considered. Planning, he said, is an "important function." Highways Minister Lea will be asked to inform regional districts of all plans for highway construction within their jurisdiction. "It's an excellent said Aid. Don Sherling of Cranbropk, pointing out that two major roads were being built last year in the RDEK without the RD's knowledge. One was in the Edgewater area, the other near Gold Creek. Highways Uniform widths for road rights-of-way may not soon become a thing of the past RDEK directors recently wrote Graham Lea, minister of highways, pointing out several problems that come up because any right-of-way designated has to be a standard width. In his response, Mr. Lea recognizes what the RDEK called a "strong relationship between land use and street standards and classification." but says designation of standard widths allows for unforeseen changes in land use, as well as allowing for snow removal, and for accommodation of utilities that may be needed in future. Mr, Lea said the RDEKs points, one of which was that the width required in rural areas is too much when an area is amiexeu by a municipality, would be taken into consideration. Remuneration for RDEK directors has been increased. Now directors wili be able to get for each committee meeting thev attend as well as for full board meetings. The chairman still gets extra per meeting Besides, the chairman will receive per year instead of the per year now put out for the time and extra expenses involved in chairing the board of directors Municipalities within the RDEK may soon be able to tax on the basis of the regional hospital assessment in order to pay their RDEK levies. The new move, allowed under legislation passed at the spring session of the legislature, will allow about million more in assessment to be taxed within the whole district. In the past, municipalities were able to tax "for municipal which meant taxation based on assessed value of land and improvements. School and hospital taxing was done on land assessment plus improvements, including machinery and equipment. Now the equipment and machinery can also be taxed by the municipal government to pay its regional levy. Application has been made for letters patent to allow the move. Zoning bylaws Zoning bylaws for the extra- municipal area near Fernie and for the Wilmer area have been given final reading after approval by the provincial government. No more zoning bylaws are presently in Victoria under review. The major growth areas of the RDEK have been zoned, but work will go ahead soon on the balance of the land. Meeting as the board of the East Kootenay Regional Hospital District, directors named their representatives to the boards of regional hospitals. They are: Mr. Downey and Mr. Sherling for Cranbrook; Mr. Daigle and Mr. Johnston for Kimberley: Mr. Delesalle and Mr. Agnew for Windermere; Mr. Uphill and Mr. Sharpe for Fernie; and Mr. Phillips and Mr. Fairclough for Michel-Natal.

The Volvo 164 is far too sensible an automobile to ever be considered a luxury. Its orthopedically-designed seats, for example, are faced in leather. Not for any exotic reason. Leather simply wears better than other materials. And while the 164's ten-outlet air conditioning-heating system might seem rather lavish at first, it is essential in providing both driver and passengers with complete climate control, that even includes a heated driver s seat. Step on the accelerator and the 164's aggressive 3 liter, fuel-injected engine may also leave the impression of luxury. At least until you discover the economy of its six cylinders. Then, of course, there are the qualities that make the 164 a Volvo. Such as disc brakes on all four wheels. Energy-absorbing front and rear ends. And a single unit body so strong its roof can support the weight of over seven tons. Impressive, but hardly what one would classify as luxuries. So if you're thinking of investing in an expensive car, we suggest you visit your nearest Volvo dealer and examine the virtues of the Volvo 164. We think you'll agree with us that it would be a luxury to own anything else. SHORT STOP AUTO LTD. 538 6tti SL S., Lfjthbridge Phone 328-6586 ;
