Alberta Hamlet In Danger Of Disappearing By GLENNIS ZILM ROSEDALE (CP) Unless' this hamlet of about 400 per- sons gets running water and sewers it may die. For without these necessities, it canft at- tract people, let alone industry. "Without water and sowers we haven't got a said Peter Ludwig, chairman of the Citizens' Action Committee de- dicated to breathing new life in- to the former coal-mining town. Although the hamlet is in a federal industrial incentives area, no industry will look at it without water and sewers. Four different industrial con- cerns have investigated the possibilities of setting up shop, but because of its lack of fa- cilities have immediately look- ed elsewhere. DEPEND ON GOVT. Mr. Ludwig believes that small communities can suc- ceed but only if the govern- ments are tally willing to help. "We're not big enough to be a village so we can't go to a bank for loans. We have to de- pend on the government. "A man coming to work here can't even apply for a central mortgage and housing corpora- tion loan because there's no water." Rosedale was once one of Canada's greatest coal-pro- ducing areas, but with gas, oil and electricty as sources of power, the need for soft coal diminished and the mines closed. Population in the area dropped from a high of at the height of the mining, Mr. Ludwig said, but Rose- dale's citizens are determined the hamlet won't die. The citizen's committee this year cleared, a park for camp- ers and has other plans to at- tract people and industry. Both tbe federal and Alberta governments say small com- munities deserve a chance to grow and develop and that they will support programs if the communities will take part. Now, Rosedale, 150 miles southeast of Edmonton, wants to see the governments put then- money where their raoutlls are. No Fall Budget In Sight OTTAWA federal government is expected to maintain its present mix of fis- cal and monetary policies through the remainder of 1970, a finance department source said Tuesday. This means that no fall budget is planned, but Finance Minister Edgar Benson and his top advisers will review .the government's tax position about Christmas. The last budget was presented March 12, making no change in tax rates but stretching out for another year the government's deterrents on commercial con- struction in the principal centres of Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. Mr. Benson has been an advo- cate of twice-a-year budgeting when necessary to keep govern- ment tax policies flexible to meet changing economic cir- cumstances. The current think- ing is, however, that the present outlook requires no change for at least six months. Since the March 12 budget, there has been a distinct shift in monetary policy affecting the money Supply, interest rates .and government borrowing. The Bank of Canada, after reining in the money supply during the winter of fiscal 1969- 70, has eased the restrictions so that the total of currency in cir- culation and chartered bank de- posits reached nearly July 1. It was about early hi Marsh. The more plentiful supply of money, and the government's policy of staying out of the bond market for new borrowings hi the first half of this year, has pulled short-term interest rates down. Rates on treasury bills and short-term bonds have de- clined to about six per cent from nearly eight earlier in the' year. In the 'process, the govern- ment has drawn heavily on its flush cash bank balances. They totalled more than at the end of January and at July 15 were down to' This requires careful manage- ment until the next big inflow of funds in November, when the next issue of Canada Savings Bonds goes on sale. Terms of the new issue are expected to be announced about mid-Sep-, tember. The government's policy has been to borrow only enough to refinance outstanding bond is- sues as they become due this year, except for'money required by the foreign exchange fund to ON SALE JULY DISCOUNT SIZZLERS ONE SIZE PAMTY HOSE 1H A mSTA OF SUMMER SHADES!

After heavy buying of U.S. dollars to keep the Canadian dollar below its International Monetary Fund peg limit of one per cent above 92.5 cente "U.S., the government set the dollar free June 1 to find its own level in international markets. Since then it has used some additional reserves to keep the dollar from rising too high, too fast. In its current budget thinking, the government has virtually set aside any thought of a gen- eral revision of income taxes af- fecting 1971. TOile Jan. 1, 1971, was the original target date for putting Mr. Benson's white paper proposals into effect, that time-table cartnot now be met. Jan. 1, .1972, is the next target, and some officials think it will be touch-and-go to meet it if Parliamentary debate is pro- tracted. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED OR YOUR MONEY REFUNDED! "We're tte largest commu- nity in Alberta without water and Mr. Ludwig said. In a letter to Premier Harry Strom early in June, the com- mittee asked for help in bring- ing at least water to the com- munity. "We're determined that Rosedale will not be just anoth- er ex-coal town, to be forgotten now that coal, with its ac- companying royalties, is no longer the letter said. There are two ways the com- munity can get water, Mr. Ludwig said. The committee will meet government officials later this month to discuss pos- sibilities. Residents already have con- tributed each toward the purchase of an old CNR well. It has yet to have flow tests done on it, but if the flow is satsifactory, it is one alterna- tive. The cost of installing a pumping and pipeline system to serve, 52 homes in the main part of the hamlet would be about Government officials say this could be financed at foot frontage fees by those in- volved over a 25-year period, plus a users' fee for each homeowner. But Mr. Ludwig says this Is tto expensive for homeowners. The government at first pro- posed nine-pcr-cent interest on a loan, he said. It has now gone down to eight per cent But a few years ago, when in- terest rates were about six pec cent, other communities got government loans at 2% per cent. "They ought to offer w least four per cent." PIPELINE PLAN The second proposal for bringing in water involves a pipeline from Drumheller, four miles away. "Costs of bringing Drumhell- er water to Rosedale limits are esitmated at about But without a grant for at least that part of the money, the cost is prohibitive." Mr. Ludwig thinks that if the government would give a grant to bring the line from Drum- heller, the hamlet would the money to put in both water and sewer lines. "We'd have to dig the ditches anyway and it's something we're willing to sacrifice for. We're determined not to die."
