Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-30,Lethbridge, Alberta Construction costs situation ^bleak^ for school board NATAL, B.C. (HNS) - The Fernie School District was warned recently that construction costa will increase tremendously for the proposed building program. Jerry Browning, board architect from Cranbrook, baaed bis predictiMis on a survey taken at the coast which indicates that about 400 wage contracts, many of which affect the building industry, expire this year. "The situation is very bleak," said Mr. Browning. “Escalating costs of materials Is baffling contractot^.” He said many cmtractors come to his office each day seardiing for ways out of the dilemma posed w increased material costs. His firm has provided architectural services in about IS million worth of construction recently, he said, and many contractors are fmding th< n difficult. Town gets grant for RCMP park PINCHER CREEK ~ The town has received the RCMP Centennial grant of $10,000 to be used for the RCMP Centenirial Park and a footbridge connecting the PlDCher Creek Historical Society grounds. Blainnore’s proposal that one doecatcher nab canines from Coleman to Pincher Creek was rejected by council. Pincher Creek has its own dogcatcher and town council is satisfied with Ms work. Plans and specifications for a 170,000 renovation of the Pincher Creek FV)lice Building have been approved. Work must be finished by May 31 to qualify for a winter works grant. A conit of revision comprising councillors Jeff Higa and Jim Burns and Mayor Juan Teran will sit in council chambers here March 25. The annual meeting for town ratepayers Is set for MiU’ch 27. The SQUth In short Wildlife office staff hiked NATAL, B.C. (HNS) - The Nelson regional office of the fish and wildlife branch reports that the Kootenay region has employed an additional number of auxiliary conservation officers, nuisance animal trappers and part time office help. The additional help has relieved thé permanent staff of many of their routine duties and office work and pemitted them to spend more time in the field. This,has resulted in an increase in the number of prosecutions under the wildlife and fir^rms acts — in some cases as much as tri* pie that of previous years. Also more substantial penalties are being handed out by many judges.

T. Chambers told trustees, “There is just no point in ling to referendum cm those r. Chambers had previously provided trustees with figures showing estimated costs for each project, funding still available from previous referenda, and funds authorized by department of education officials two weeks ago. He estimated cost of the gross building program at $3,138,700. Since authorized ¿xlsts, ^he* amount whic^i would have had to be raised by refer^um is $1,543,100. However, after listening to Mr. Browning, trustees decided to delete some items from the plans and authorized district superintendent of-schools, Don Hartwig, to go to Victoria to request examination of Mr. Browning’s estimates. The final figures quoted include funds for acquisition of sites and equipment, neither of which will be affected by increased contracthig costs. fii a further move to pare the building budget, the b^d voted to act as its own contractor in at least one school. This is expected to save 10 per cent on construction costs and provides a safety valve. As building committee chairman Jack Pit^eon put it, "If we nin out of money, we just stop.

Better maintenance asked A farm truck, just leaving Barons after depositing a load of grain in one of the nine county elevators in the town, may be a stght of the past for many rural comipunities in Southern Alberta. Rail tine abandonment and country elevator rationalization threatens to close transportation service to many small towns in the face ______L- of opposition from those small towns. Some farmers and farm groups are now calling for a nationalization of rail lines or at least railway beds so they would always be maintained, assuring small communities of rail service. The HeraW" District Larger grants sought Library chairman named contract.’ ' 'The board’s decision was supported by Mr. Browning, who pointed out that if a contractor is hired and a general strike or lockout situation develops in the building industry shnilar to that of three years ago, all work on a project will halt. “If you get a contractor, there is a good chance that there will be no construction this summer,” said Mr. Browning. Late bus from school continues NATAL, B.C. (HNS) - The Fernie school board recently decided to operate its late bus runs for a trial period without the usual requirement of a minimum of 10 students. Late bus runs have been established so students who are bused to and from schools may remain in school after regular hours in order to participate in sports activities or confer with teachers and other school personnel. Past practice is to require a minimum of 10 students for the late bus, but several principals told school trustees at the board's January meeting that some students register for the late bus merely to make up the numbers to 10 as a favor to other students or for an excuse to simply hang around. Trustee Lita Salanski of Grasmere said that bus drivers tell students who are not on the roster of a team requiring late busing for practices that they cannot ride the bus She felt this unfair to students wishing to use the library or consult the school principal as in some cases, it was reported, students have only a few minutes to catch the bus after the school period ends. The runs involve trips from Fernie to Elko, Jaffray to Elko, Grasmere to Elko and Sparwood to Elkford. Total estimated extra cost, without paying overtime, would be |6,-739 and with overtime would be $8.147. Trustees J Pidgeon of Fernie and J .Gerbrandt of Elkford opposed the sug^-tion of a trial period. Mr Pidgeon pointed out (hat if the plan was adopted as suggested, the buses would have to nm if even a sii^Ie student wished to slay late Committee seats filled on Fernie school board NATAL, B.C.
