Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Junt 2, 1973 THI IITHIRIDOI HMAID 13 Municipal heads seed added funds CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. (CP) Municipal leaders will meet here nsxt week to stir the brew tl.ey will ask federal and provincial governments to swal- low at the next national tri-level conference this fall. One of the major issues at next week's meeting of the Ca- nadian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities (CFMM) will be how municipalities will present their demands for more money to the senior levels of government at the tri-level con- ference. But important debates are also expected on environmental, social planning and trans- portation issues which also may crop up at the federal-provin- cial-municipal meeting. No date or location for the tri-level con- ference has yet been an- nounced. The CFMM conference will also discuss internal problems which threaten to break up the common front presented by the municipalities at the first tri- level conference in Toronto last November. Some municipal leaders are unhappy with the CFMM as a representative of big city interests on the na- tional scene. FINANCE IMPORTANT Financial matters are ex- pected to be included on the agenda of the next tri-level meeting as municipalities, in particular, consider economic problems the root of most diffi- culties faced by local govern- ment. The municipalities presented a brief at last Novembers tri- level meeting saying mu- nicipal responsibilities are growing more rapidly than fed- eral or provincial burdens. But the financial resources avail- able to local government were increasing more slowly than tax areas open to the other levels of government. The brief recommended that the three levels, of government look at the tax sources avail- able to each. It then suggested they decide what tax reforms are needed to allow federal, provincial and municipal gov- ernments to carry out their re- sponsibilities. This document will be the springboard to discussion of the financial issue at the CFMM conference, Claude CFMM secretary-general, said in a recent interview. Mr. Langlois said several dif- ferent views are held by ipal leaders on how they get more money. David Russell, Alberta munic- ipal affairs minister, has said their should be a "guaranteed source of increasing income, such as the income tax field, for local government." The CFMM conference will also talk about whether munici- palities should seek a greater role in planning social services. A brief to the tri-level confer- ence in Toronto urged greater co-ordination of effort by the federal, provincial and munici- pal governments in providing assistance for needy per- sons.
