Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Snow removal slowed; church construction set NATAL (HNS) - District of Sparwood council recently heard public works foreman Avelino Cimolini report on-street parking of vehicles is still a problem to the snow-plowing crew. Provision is made in the building bylaw for off-street parking areas for all properties. His request is that people make use of these areas during the winter rather than parking on the streets. If the streets arp clear of parked vehicles, he is able to clear the streets and provide a better service to rest, dents. Council is also looking into a bylaw which will put some legal "teeth" into the problem. If a parking bylaw is passed it will be necessary for all vehicle owners to park in off-street locations, Council was informed there is to be a change in the provincial grants for recreation. In a letter from the department of travel and industry, council was informed there will be a change in the recreation grant structure and details of the change will be made known at the beginning of the new year. Consensus of council was that regardless of changes in provincial grants, more money will have to be budgeted for recreation in this area. Accordingly, the letter was passed to the recreation commission for consideration and recommendations to council. A letter was received from the Roman Catholic Diocese of East Kootenay indicating the contract for the new St. Michael's Church complex in Spar-wood has been awarded to Mod Industries Limited of Langley, B.C. and that construction will commence Jan. 2, 1971. The project includes a church, hall, rectory and convent. A letter from the minister of municipal affairs, Dan Campbell, advised there have been changes in the municipal loan fund and that projects in the past which have been postponed are now eligible for provincial loans. Included are water and sewage systems, paving and sidewalk projects. The communication indicated that with ratepayer approval money can become available for these projects. Council referred the letter to the administrative and finance committee for consideration and recommendation. Aid. Earl Tabor reported to council on the recent meeting of the Regional District of East Kootenay. On the matter of the zoning of the Elk Valley he reported that there will be a public hearing in January. On the matter of Natal urban renewal he reported that the latest land acquisitions cost in excess of $386,000 bringing the total to date to more than $1,550,000. About 109 properties have been levelled and there are about 25 more to be levelled in the present project. Aid. Tabor also reported on the meeting of the regional hospital board. He indicated a survey has been ordered into the hospital needs in Spar wood. He also said that he opposed the concept of a diagnos tic clinic for Sparwood in 'lieu of a hospital. He reported to the regional board the people of Sparwood would settle for nothing less than a full service hospital. For their work on the new promotional brochure on Sparwood, the students of the Sparwood Secondary School have been given a donation of $100. Originally the money was to have been given in prizes to contributing students, but because so many were involved in producing the brochure the student council indicated a pre-ferencefor no individual awards.

"Self insurance9 principle accepted by Taber trustees TABER (HNS) - The principle of self insurance for school administrations in Alberta was accepted by Taber school division trustees recently. The board will recommend the principle to the deputy minister of education and to the South Alberta School Authorities Association at its next meeting. Self insurance was suggested to the trustees by the board of governors, Lethbridge Community College, on a recommen- dation by Don Livingston of Lethbridge. It provides that insurance premiums remain in the province for payment of fire and casualty losses, or that the school (or other) system becomes its own insurance carrier.

Venables, pollution control board chairman for British Columbia, objecting to Kaiser Resources being allowed to discharge effluent from its plant, which began operation this year, allegedly before a permit has been granted by the pollution control board. The mention was made at a recent meeting by director George Fedorek and seconded by director Andrew Rosieky. Board members felt that in this case they must act as public watchdogs. Other matters of' pollution were considered by the board, including a letter objecting to the pollution caused by an asphalt plant owned by Dawson Construction Ltd., which operated from August until recently. Lloyd Phillips, president of the Fernie Stockbreeders' Association, said his organization is seriously concerned about the health of people and cattle. He said a thick, yellowish smoke has belched from a stack and adhered to every blade of grass. Because the plant is not now in operation, no action will be taken. However, the pollution control branch should have some control of air pollution by next year. Board members wondered if Medical Officer Dr. J. M. H. Hopper could not have closed the plant.
