Ph. 323-4593 Waterton won't seek autonomy By GREG McINTYRE Herald Staff Writer WATERTON This townsite within Waterton Lakes National Park is too small to join the battle the towns ot Banff and Jasper are waging for autono- my, says (be president of its chamber of commerce. "I wish them said Emanuel Cohen, a motel oper- ator here, referring to commit- tees called Autonomy '73 form- ed at Banff and Jasper to look into self-government. The first task of the 'commit- tees will be to study and cir- culate to residents a report by the Alberta department of municipal affairs which says both Banff and Jasper are cap- able of paying for local ad- ministration and people there "should have the same right as other Alberlans to express their views on the important question of incorporation of their community." Banff and Jasper, each with a year-round population which doesn't fall below about are considerably larger than Waterton, inhabited by only about 150 people during the winter. "There's just no way, with the number of people and the services required, for Waterlon to run its own town said Mr. Cohen. Waterton residents presented a brief in 1970 to a federal government commission look- ing into autonomy. The brief said self-government for the small community would be un- Bowns lauded by TCASA Wilf Bowns, manager of the Chamber of Commerce, has been commended for quick ac- tion a month ago in getting a cancer victim from Lethbridgo to the Mayo Clisic at Rochester, Minn.

In Woterton National Park desirable because local people would be completely unable to pay for basic municipal ser- vices like sewer, water and roads, said Mr. Cohen. Residents in the national parks don't own land, but lease it from the federal government. Park residents have much less say with the federal gov- ernment, located in Ottawa 3- 000 miles away, than they would have with a municipal council responsible to the provincial government In fjdmonton, he said. As an example o[ the "bur- eaucratic" treatment park peo- ple have received from Ottawa Mr. Cohen said the federal gov- ernment, a few years ago ruled that only people who die in the park can be buried there. This means that if a husbann is buried in the park, but a v.ife dies outside the park, she cannot be buried beside her husband, be said. Homeowner grants may total The first batches of home- owner grants applications have been sent to Edmonton, but no money has been received here. The local assessment depart- ment has processed grant ap- plications for repre- senting homes. The majority o[ homeowners arc eligible for a S75 tax dis- count, in the form of the grant. Senior citizens, however, have a number of alternatives. If a homeowner is G5 years or older, he can take either the 575 grant or a refund of the portion of taxes paid for the provincial school foundation program, which amounts to 25.87 mills. On a assess, ment, that represents S256.70. A homeowner 65 years or older who receives the guaran- eted income supplement from the federal government has the same option, but works on a basic grant, instead of Old age renters are also el- igible lor tax relief. Appli- cations for a 550 grant will be available within the next week at the County of Lcthbridge of- fices, provincial administration building, Treasury Branch of- fices and from treasury branch agents. Renter grant applications must be mailed directly to tho deportment of municipal af- fairs office, 10363 lOBfb St., Ed- monton. Inquiries should be di- rected to the same address. Homeowners who have their taxes paid through a mortgage company will receive their re- ceipts in the mail this week. A tax discount application will be included with the receipt. Applicants must have livec on property for which the gran is requested for 120 days before they apply. For instance, if person moved into his house June 1, he cannot apply for i grant until Oct. 1. Once the application has beer made, a one-month to six-week wailing period can be expected for receipt of the grant.

"We are pleased that another foreign investment has been Mr. Skelton said. "Environmental studies have shown that it is not a desirablo enterprise."
