In a letter to Mayor Arthur H. Avery, copy to the Taber Chamber of Commerce, High- ways Minister E. Taylor said that an onsite study indicated an exit from the east-bound traffic lane of the divided highway can be installed. No cross-over of the de- pressed median would be con- sidered. Mr. Taylor was responding to a visit paid by Mayor Avery and advised the costs of such construction is to be at the ac- count of tlie Town of Taber or the developer. Mr. Taylor also pointed out that the design of the present highway through the town was agreed to by tlie mayor arid town council prior to construc- tion at that time there was great dissatisfaction with the conflicts of traffic. It was agreed that the highway part would be permitted to function as a highway for through traf- fic and would not be reduced to a town street. Jan. 1 the town annexed the land west of the town limits to Highway 36. .The necessity for an access to the new prop- erty is of recent origin. With the single exit approved, east-bound traffic will have to travel to the Highway 36 junc- tion, reversing direction onto the east-bound lane to enter the motor hotel development. Regional Group Assumes Garbage Administration CRANBROOK (Special) With letters patent now in hand, the Regional District of East Kootenay has taken over administration of rural refuse grounds from the department of highways. Starting date was July 1, but weight of the problem, sanitary disposal of an estimated 23 tons of refuse daily, will allow a fairly gradual transition of the responsibility. Budgeted is maximum 000. RDEK assistant planner David Phelps made a survey of existing disposal grounds in June and showed the June joard meeting slides of all 28 grounds and reported their good and bad points. Most criticism was directed at cases where refuse was di- rectly dumped into water or water-courses. He said locations must make t impossible for pollution of surface or groundwater from refuse, easily accessible and maintained and create no fire or health hazard. RDEK planner Alfred. Mille reported almost all would hav to be relocated, and the existin dump areas reclaimed. Working theory establishes 31 new rural disposal grounds lo cated within five miles range o rural settlements. It also establishes priority t fit the limited budget.for ties which range from Fording Riv er on the Upper Elk system t Wilmer and Edgewater to th American boundary, existin and developing resort lakes anc where industrial residentia populations are centering. New locations must be chosen to conform with minimum pollu tion control standards, and suit able for later sanitary fill afte 10 to 15 years use, then rehabili tated and sealed with suitable soil and planted in grass. All the dumps must be li censed by the end of 1970 al Iiough prohibitions also include Jravel beds and gullies besides water and water courses am may create difficulties in find ing sites. Department of high ways will be asked to clean up disused dumps as new approvec dumps come into service.

The Regional District also made an outlay of fof a regional park. There was no similar expenditure in 1968. Debt charges increased just over to A con- tribution of to a feasibil- ity study reserve fund was new this year, but contribution to general capital and loan funds was down slightly, to from The largest slice of the reve- nue came from member mu- nicipalities' contributions, G6.8 psr cent. Service charges brought 9.1 per cent of revenue; building permits, 8.4 per cent the year's surplus (which at was about twice as big as last 7.6 per cent; provincial government conlribu- tions, 6.2 per cent and miscel- laneous 1.9 per cent. .General government cost 49.7 per cent of total expenditures and it was broken down into: planning and zoning, 19.4 per cent; administrative, 16.3 per cent; executive legislative, 4.9 per cent and other, 9.1 per cent.

The sur- plus accounts for 14.8 per cent of expenditure. Board chairman Henry Nel- son reported, "As we increase our experience, we increase our workload, and 1969 has proven to be no exception to this rule. Application and recommenda- tions have been put forth to the provincial government covering additional functions which should lead the 1970 board to a most exciting year." Moi'e than was spent on the Urban Renewal Scheme involving Natal and Spanvood. Fifty six properties in Natal were demolished; it is "anticipated that a considerable emigration of residential people should take place between Nat- al and Spanvood during 1970." Mr. Bertoia's report con- tinues: "The Regional District of East Kootenay is facing one of the most I'apid economic grovvth patterns of. any area within the province. This has created with the expansion by way of heavy industry, a num- ber of service problems which involve considerable time of the Regional District staff. It is now more essential than ever before that zoning regulation be put into effect within the district." SAVE Up to 3.50 1.38 PER GALLON PER QUART Reg. Woolco Price 8.99 to 11.47 Reg.
