This mean that municipal assistance grants will be divorced from natural resource revenue and will in future, be based on expenditure needs and priority spending. The decision to increase the grants was made during the weekend following meetings .with municipal associations and representatives from all over the province and also on recommendations of the government study on municipal financing. The million increase Is to be shared on a per Capita basis by all Alberta municipalities. At the same time the government said there would be "belt-tightening in other areas." "We also recognize that this amount does not solve the financial strains on municipalities but we believe it is a significant step the premier said in a prepared statement. He said future policy will be to avoid tying specific commitments to specific revenue sources for municipalities or for other government programs. Municipal Affairs increase ints ceiling Dave Russell said the recommended increase is "the final amount" for the 1972-73 grant program. The premier said the final amount could not have been determined earlier "because it was necessary for the cabinet to assess the total budget position in relation to other priorities."

The change represents the first major "new direction" in municipal financing that was promised by the Progressive Conservatives prior to their victory in the Aug. 30 provincial election.
