Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedntnior, February 24, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Thirty garbage sites wanted by RDEK CRANBROOK (Special) -jwill poUute ground water or Difficulties of locating s u rf ace water, difficult in able garbage sites conforming Rocky Mountain Trench andj ivith RDEK sanitation regula- tions and acceptable to its own valley topography. So far single approved appli- area continue to perplex the j cation is near Tie Lake for Regional District of East Koot-1 landfill but nearby Jaffray pro- enay board. Its letters patent cover re- sponsibility for its six electoral areas. About 30 sites are required from Spillimachene to Moyie and Elkford to Flathead, about 200 north south miles and width of about 120 miles. Provincial standards forbid sites located where drainage Cancelled COALHURST (HNS) The weekly meeting of 1st Coal- hurst Cubs and Scouts has been cancelled for this Wednesday only.

More district pages 31, 32 and page 38 perty owner protests are de- laying its development. The single one in operation is for Elkford at the head of the Upper Elk Valley, without RDEK approval or even appli- cation, on authority of the B.C. Forest Service. Elkford is reportedly contem- plating village status, thus leaving electoral area status. Regional Planner Alfred Mil- ler reports RDEK application for approval of five sites suit- able under RDEK regulations in the area of Canal Flat-Bris- co. Ground ditch and landfill areas not draining into ground or surface water appears logi- cal location for these sites, but formal protests of residents in their vicinity make securing approval difficult. The city of Cranbrook, whose substantial acreage dis- posal ground was north of 2nd St. at 25th Ave. and aban- doned two years ago, has been successfully landfilled and will be a park development within a few years.

In 1970 these ranged from Creston Kaslo 39.29 through Cranbrook's 37.82, Lake Win- dermere 35.75, Fernie 33.2S and Kimberley 33.07 mills.

This could be the basis of his initial brief on the existing situation of compara- tive services and costs. Basic provincial school rate applying through the province on all districts is not establish- ed until April 1, wher each dis- trict then can determine from its own budget the money available for its local school services. Mr. Levirs' service of discus- sion, report and recommenda- tion at intervals will continue until some decision is reached among the five boards. Major alternatives could be how continuing existing boards could- co-operate toward East Kootenay wide standard of need. quality and finance level, or how sc large an amalgamated district 200 miles square could operate efficiently in all five districts. If the school districts amal- gamated, a single local school mill rate would apply alike in city and rural property within its bounds, and a single board would determine policies. At present each is separate from the other four, except that su- perintendencies cover Cran- brook-Fernie, P. B. Pullinger, Kimberley Windermere, Art Rutledge, and Creston Kaslo, F. T. Middleion. Also to be considered in any amalgamation would be merg- ing of the five school districts into a single entity for capiial expenditures as required. This has been done essentially al- ready in East Kootenay Re- gional Hospital District, though its wesJ limit is Moyie and it doss not include Creston-Kasb. Under Regional Hospital capital projects procedure the entire region votes on expendi- tures through the entire region, which are liquidated by the en- tire region in hospital mill rate. Priorities of hospital projects are established by professional but disinterested board deci- sions on the basis of proven Richard Vornbrock. Ladies' pike: (6 Ibs. 2 ozs.) Wilma Vornbrock.
