Said Mr. Yurko, "Preliminary discussions have been carried out with the Municipal District of Taber with respect to transferring these obligations (water supp- ly and sewage systems and fire protection services) to the Municipal District. "This would make the ad- ministration of the Hays systems consistent with all other hamlets in the province which are the responsibility of the local government."

The sawlog talley, covering both East and West Kootenay, was cubic feet. This compares with 352 cubic feet in 1973, a record tally. The December scale, in the face of reported woods operating losses, was 457 cubic feet, reversing the half year steady drop, when it easily topped the cubic feet for the comparable month of 1973. January and February are traditionally the rush logging months to backlog basic resources" for the month to three months woods closure period during spring runoff. Logging cutbacks or suspen- sions by smaller operators appear to have been balanced by the larger operators.
