ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Sldg. 328-4095 Tax Travellers Klinkhamer Urges CRANBROOK (Special) Mayor Maurice Klinkhamer is proposing to city council it con- sider setting a one-dollar1 pas- senger charge for airport reve- nue toward improving shoe- string terminal facilities at Cranbrook airport. Average per month count at present is about people embarking and rises steadily. The dollar can be incorporated into the airline ticket and re- mitted to the city. The million airport for commercial service of PWA and B.C. Airlines, now merging, has been in service two years half- way between Cranbrook and Kiniberley, built by the depart ment of transport with certain requirements from the city. These included terminal ar- rangements which are "tempor- ary" in the comer of a depart- ment warehouse. City airport operations last year at reve- nue of showed a modest deficit covered by DoT, and ithout additional revenue the city cannot undertake its 15 per ent share in provision of ade- quate and appropriate terminal amenities for passengers. Council airport committee Al- dermen Steff Alchison and Don Sherling have reported DoT rul- ing the city responsible for air- port disaster emergency equip- ment and no facilities ai'e eas- ily available there at present. The city has also been notified hat all weather blind landing procedures are not practical at Uranbroofc airport until a hol- low and hill at the east end of the mile long runway are grad- ed to runway level. Mayor Klinkhamer was of the opinion the DoT interest in im- provements such as these, and improving the standard of elec- trification which is below B.C Electrical Code standards was unlikely unless the airport could derive increased revenue for its 15 per cent share in the work to be done. He has arranged a meeting within the next month with Okanagan Kootenay member' of parliament Doug Stewart to- ward discussing the department and city attitudes on continuing improvements" and particularly on action toward retaliation of a p r o p e r, permanent, emer- gency equipped passenger ter- minal such as other interior municipalities on the same com- mercial flight route offer.
