Picture Butte residents claim taxes are too high PICTURE BUTTE (HNS) At the recent meeting of the Picture Butte town council, a delegation representing the res- idents of Rogers Ave. met with the council to protest the asses- ment of 60 cents per foot front- age for the paving that was done on Rogers Ave. in 1971. It is the feeling of the resi- dents that as the provincial government provided funds for the major portion of the pav- ing, the frontage tax is too high and unjustified. The delegation requested that the town council give serious consideration to one of two sug- gestions: (1) the frontage tax be reverted to 30 cents a foot; (2) that Rogers Avenue be posted and. designated as "a no truck route." Following the presentation of the delegation, council is to receive a report on the actual cost of the pav- ing.

Its staff planner, Alfred Mil- ler has prepared the bylaw strictly on the basis of good land use and conservation in the wide public interest. RDEK approval is required for any electoral area residen- tial development, though :indus- trial development is subject only to RDEK certification and ;he proposal violates none of its existing bylaws. Three proposed developments were presented at the board meeting, and nona were ap- proved. Two will be given further consideration. Mr. Miller re- ported tc the board a score of developers visit his office week- y from the electoral areas seek- ing plan approval. Its Elk Valley zoning bylaw stirred up a hornet's nest with senior provincial government interference when starvation ranchers of many years pro- tested RDEK interference, of subdivision plans which would put them aboard the real es- tate bandwagon. The altered bylaw, somewhat relaxed, and the Wasa District bylaw for zoning, are the only two so far in operation. Not yet enacted is the Libby pondage area, and Cranbrook and Kimberley rural which may rouse similar furore from the highly articulate develop- ers. Rather than go through the Elk Valley searing again, the RDEK board has decided to rely more heavily on its tech- nical Planning Committee its letters patent allow. This appointed body of ex- perts on farmland, game land, water rights, and city civil en- gineering, school boards, muni- cipalities, highway engineer- ing, municipal finance, forestry and B.C. Hydro is appointed by the board, though some mem- bers are from points as remote as Victoria, Kamloops anS Nel- son outside RDEK bounds. Committee function is advis- ory only when asked by the board, and its are difficult to assemble. However RDEK board which is entirely laymen of varying interests may in future refer all subdivision applications to this body for decision. Staff of RDEK has recently been increased with naming of an administrative assistant, P. W. McKechnie, former Creston village clerk.
