NEW AGREEMENT The Municipal District of Taber No. 14 has offered a new five-year rental agreement to Taber School Division No. 6 covering administration office space in the Taber Administration Building. The new agreement calls for a rental increase from $6,000 per annum to $8,000. The administration building is jointly owned and operated by the Town of Taber and the MD, each renting out space in its respective wing. The school board took no decisive action, though the consensus was that the trustees were deeply concerned. Other rental rates in the building will be examined before further action is taken.
