Police Officials Superinlend- ant Pritchard and Inspector Gordon were also present. Advantages of the proposed hub system of policing from Lethbridge were presented as a saving hi book keeping. Two police cars would be avail- able 25 miles each way. The general feeling of people from both districts was that the dis- advantages outweigh economic benefits. Mayor Pingree Tanner said: "Regardless of the economic factors, you can't measure the psychological effect on young- sters of seeing police walking around town. It seems to have a deterring effect on criminal acts. He recommended that, if It became necessary to move the police offices to Lethbridge, the men should be left here for the good effect they have on young people. Mayor Bob Graham felt the MOBILE HOME PRICED TO CIEAR 14'x68' 3 Bedroom MIDWEST MOBILE HOMES PHONE 327-1986 RCMP is doing a good job but is "spread too thin."

Chalmers and Ed Barry of Calgary Power met with Lhe Colcman council requesting council's decision to oppose the power company's plan to in- crease its rale by a proposed 35 per cent. The power officials indicated other councils have agreed on the increase. Coleman council advised it would not accept the hike with- out further study and investi- gation of rates from other com- munities. Council will also seek inform- ation from the Public Utilities Board. Council was obligated to turn away several local delegations that made an appearance with- out first making an appoint- ment. A heavy agendy of busi- ness prohibited the hearings. Local citizens are requested to make appointments to meet council several days before the meeting so these matters can be placed on the evening's agenda. Council did not agree to the proposal of the Crowsnest Pass recreations board. It wanted Coleman to pay an additional if the town wished to re- ceive summer programs. Coun- cil agreed to the proposed bud- get less payments for April, May and June when, the town did not receive service from the recreation board. Council felt the board is a public body financed by pubb'c funds, both local and provincial, and council did not react favor- ably when the board curtailed services to the community. Permission was granted to Coleman Collieries to install mobile homes in the Carbon- dale district providing they ad- here to the local development and control bylaw. Council will meet with Eric Jamieson of Coleman Collier- ies to discuss gas and sewer service for the new develop- ment area. Mayor John Holyk, council- lor Ted Kryczka and Milan Balog 01 Frank checked sever- al areas in the district to find a suitable area to set up a satel- lite station for CFCN-TV. A report on their' findings is to be given to Ron Nordquisl for further action. The town, has purchased blocks 7 and 12 from the de- partment of municipal affairs. The local nuisance grounds, being too close to the residen- tial area in east Coleman, and to the local forest area, is caus- ing problems. A letter from the department of municipal af- fairs indicated some engineers would be visiting the 'Pass with a view to relocating the grounds to a suitable site.

Decoux Photo Teacherage rales hiked TABER (HNS) Additional teacher accommoda tion at Hays and a general increase in teacherage rental rates were approved recently by the Taber school division board of trus- tees. Two PFRA houses at Hays were purchased from Crown Assets Disposal Corporation for the total sum of follow- ing negotiations which split the difference between a PFRA ap- praisal of the two at and a certified appraisal which set Lhe value at, Teacher accommodation at Hays has been a point of con- cern with only one duplex apartment available in the past, necessitating some teach- ers to live in Vauxhall and commute to work. The purchase of the two PFRA residences if expected to relieve the problem. Following an analysis of teacherage rental rates in the division, recently completed by Sunalla Appraisers Ltd. of Edmonton, a range of increases ranging to 100 per cent was ap- proved by the trustees. Renters of leacherages in Ta- ber, Vauxhall and Barnwell will have their rental rate doubled. Due to the distances involved and the nature of the commu- nities concerned, renters in Hays, Enchant and Grassy Lake will be charged 60 per cent of the appraiser's recom- mendations, while at Kinni- burgh the rate will be 50 per cent. All tenants have been ad- vised of the increase which will become effective' next January 1. In addition to the up-swing in rents, occupants of all teacher- ages will now pay light, heat- ing, water and sewer service charges (some formerly pro- vided on a no-charge basis by the Division) and. in addition will be responsible for mainte- nance of lawns on the prem- ises either by doing Ihe work or being back-charged for the same.
