The education portion of the property tax has been deleted and committee members decided it will not be necessary to increase rates. The new lawns policy acknowledges that the appearance of the residence is a matter for co-operation between landlord and tenant. Because of a plentiful supply of water for growing and maintaining a lawn in the communities of Foremost, Bow Island and Burdett, the policy instructs tenants to maintain their lawns. In other centres, individual cases will be determined according to the adequacy of the water supply and the willingness of the occupant to start or maintain a lawn. Where a lawn already exists, it is the responsibility of the occupant to water, cut and fertilize it when necessary. Where a lawn does not exist, the county, through the maintenance supervisor, will make arrangements for top soil, some levelling if feasible, and lawn seed. It will be the occupant's responsibility to do the remaining work. Back yard gardens and lawns are optional, depending again on the supply of water.
