Mayor to police costs with gov't FORT MACLEOD (Staff) Mayor Charlie Edgar's continuing battle with the RCMP here took a new turn at Monday night's council meeting when Coun. Phil Hodnett noted the police force occupied a town building without permission. Mayor Edgar has been involved in a running battle with the force that founded his town. He says the town is getting a bill for prisoner accommodation that the province should be footing. Monday night Coun. John Davis suggested "we might have or laying there for rental of our premises." (The RCMP here moved its offices to a town building and turned the former Macleod nose count too low? FORT MACLEOD (Staff) There are people in this town, the latest census shows. Secretary Roy White told council Monday night it is-an increase of 128 people from the 1971 census. He said the nose count disappointed him. "I thought it would be closer to "They always seem to be low." said Coun. Phil Hodnett. "We have got more than 128 people living in mobile said Coun. Grant Day. "We are still said the secretary. "We are checking all the cards over to make sure they haven't missed any. I think ours should be closer to headquarters into a residence Said Coun. Hodnett: them) you didn't have any blankety-blank permission to go down there." Mayor Edgar plans to meet with Solicitor-General Helen Hunley, Municipal Affairs. Minister Dave Russell and possibly Provincial Treasurer Gordon Miniely to get the jail costs straightened out. He says the town is paying too high a price to accommodate prisoners who are en route to Standoff from Lethbridge and who are nabbed by the RCMP in the Fort Macleod area and jailed in this town. Mayor Edgar said there were 14 of these, for example, by 2 p.m. Saturday. This amounts to about 280 prisoner hours for these incarcerated transients on one weekend. Coun. John Davis said he talked with the RCMP sergeant recently and learned the town pays 75 per cent and the province 25 per cent of the cost of guards at the jail. "Because they are picked up in town they are our responsibility." said Mayor Edgar. "This is something we have got to go to Edmonton said Coun. Davis. District Highway junction improvement near COALDALE (HNS) The highways department has advised town officials the long-awaited improvement to the junction of Highway 3 and 13th Street here will begin soon. The change involves omission of the new street formerly proposed to replace the lane east of 13th St., between 19th Ave. and Highway 3, and a change in the south end of the new 12th Street connection to avoid right-of-way problems now being encountered. It has been suggested the town acquire a small parcel of land in the intersection area which is too small for most commercial developments. Council is concerned about pedestrian crossing signs along the highway through town. Council is considering amber lights on the highway at each side of town, an overhead pass (already rejected once by the highways department officials) and a slower speed limit. Coun. Peter Letkemann will contact Coaldale police for their recommendations.
