Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta It - THE IETHMIDOI HIRAID - Wednesday, January 3T, 1971 $2 million budget okayed NATAL (HNS) - Reflecting the greatly increased enrolment in School District No. 1 (Fernie), the budget adopted by the board of trustees shows an expected increase in expenditure of $438,063. The $2,071,008 budget wu presented recently to municipal officials and rural representatives at a special meeting. Board secretary E. T. Cham-bers went over the budget item by item. Mr. Chambers said he is unable to predict what the budget will do to the mill rate, because assessment figures arc not received until later in the year. He said despite an increase of $326,806 in the 1970 budget over that of 1969, the m i 11 rate actually dropped because of increased assessments. Mr. Chambers told the meeting the basic educational program, which is set by the department of education amounts to $1,569,625. The area of instruction accounts for the greatest increase in the budget, rising from an actual cost of $905,520 in 1970 to an anticipated $1,144,738 this year. This account includes teachers' salaries. The board has already indicated it needs several more teachers for the fall term. Increased enrolment has also caused cost estimates in _ the conveyance account and operation account to rise. The operating account, which takes into consideration everything but debt services and current non-shareable accounts, I amounts to 11,734,437. 875 tour Lee Creek Educational Centre - Paul Andersen Photo RIMS FAST - Willow Creek, west of Claresholm, rose four feet In four hours recently when a Chinook and thaw took place.

Growth and development started about 12 years ago when a mobile home construction plant was launched at the former RCAF station here. When the air base closed there were predictions the town would all but disappear. But these dire forecasts turned out to be completely false. Last year more than $250,000 in construction was authorized by building permits. A $65,000 paving program was carried out. A new building subdivision was opened and $20,000 was spent on sidewalks, curbs and gutters. A mobile home subdivision was opened. It provides 60 by 110-foot lots, fully serviced, at $30 a month lease rate. With all this progress there is one sour note. Mayor Ernie Patterson says "we are still short of rental housing."

"With all these blessings we live in a world of strife; many are asking the question, what hope is there for the youth?" He said "good things come from God, these are the things in 1 i f e that build a better world." as far north as High River, south from Fort Macleod and east from Barons and Carman-gay. Last year a 24-hour taxi service was initiated. It fills a great need, particularly for older citizens.

Firefighters here built a fine new training and' recreation hall with volunteer labor and donated materials. Centennial Park . was upgraded. It was enlarged. An additional four acres was seeded to grass. Two hundred old, rusty car bodies were shipped out, removing an eye-sore. The bowling alley was reopened and a new dog pound was built in the industrial subdivision at the south end of town. Claresholm made headlines across the nation when council passed the first bylaw in Canada to prohibit the sale of thin glass or. non-returnable soft drink bottles.

The mayor says new subdivisions will make available 65 residential building lots. the town is awaiting approval of its recent application to annex about one section of land to the south.
