Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 3, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Coleman scene Despite early spring weather, the streets of downtown Coleman were filled with week. Coleman Colleries sends up a plume of prosperity at the end of the town's main street. RDEK denies support for land freeze lift Claresholm might miss CRANBROOK (Special) A Fernie man will have to wage his own battle with'the B.C. Land Commission to have the agricultural land freeze on his property lifted. Regional District of East Kootenay directors have decided they do not have the authority to argue with the commission in individual cases. The matter was brought before the regional govern- ment by Fernie Lawyer George Majic on behalf of his client, Alfonso Quattrin, preisident of Quattrin Motors Ltd. Quattrin purchased approx- imately 12 acres of land near Fernie in 1972 with the inten- tions of developing it into a mobile home park, Majic told the board. However, the provincial cabinet enacted the land freeze across the province, halting non agricultural development on land within the freeze. Although Quattrin made applications in 1974 to have his land removed from the land reserves, the commission denied his appeal. Finally he came to the regional board Saturday, ask- ing it to apply pressure on the commission to have the' land removed from the freeze. In a statutory declaration sworn by Quattrin, it states there is more than enough South in short School committee March 17 FOREMOST (Special) The Forty Mile County school committee will meet March 17 at the Senator Gershaw High School at Bow Island. The school committee usually meets here. Superintendent of Schools Cliff Elle says the decision was made to hold occasional meetings al other county centres in order to give residents throughout the area an opportunity to observe meetings in progress. The meeting will be held in the school's old gymnasium at a.m Registrar transferred CRANBROOK (Special) Deputy government agent and court registrar T. W Knight has been transferred to Kamloops effective April 1. The new position at Kamloops is under the attorney general's office in the newly organized courts system. Hardieville man gets contract A landscaper from Hardieville has been awarded a contract to do landscaping at the Travel Alberta Centre at Milk River. Otto Marten was awarded the contract by the Alberta Public Works. COUNTY OF LETHBRIDQE No: 26 NOTICE TO THE RESIDENTS OF SHAUQHNESSY There will be a meeting held Thursday, March 6, 1975, at p.m. in the Shaughnessy School to receive a report from Stanley and Associates, concerning the proposed water and sewage system. County Councillors will be In attendance. COUNTY of LETHBRIDQE No. 26 evidence showing the need for more housing in the Fernie area. Quattrin's declaration stated that all mobile home parks are full, with long waiting lists and there are no apartments available either. Majic told the directors there are presently two mobile home parks near Quattrin's property and the land in question has not been used for significant agricultural production for some time. Combining all these points, Majic said the land freeze is preventing the much needed development of additional housing facilities, But in spite of the argument, acting board chairman Don Sherling said the regional government would be "opening a. can of worms" if it persued the re- quest made by Quattrin, "It is not within our jurisdiction and we are not prepared to support, the said Sherling. RDEK administrator Frank Bertpia said it is the respon- sibility of the land owners to have the freeze lifted from the individual properties. After the Freeze is lifted the RDEKB can then consider entering into a land use contract governing mobile home development. Although it wasn't really the issue at hand, there was some question as to whether the regional board would support Quattrin's application if they could. It was pointed out the land in question is good agricultural land and should be kept for agricultural pur- poses. Bertoia said the two mobile home parks near Quattrin's property were built several years ago before there were any building restrictions or land use contracts in ex- istance. Sparwood director Frank Fairclough told the board the property in question was at one time used (or agricultural purposes and was quite productive. He said it still has the potential of being a profitable agricultural enterprise. Because the application is not within the RDEK jurisdic- tion and the land does have agricultural potential, the regional board decided they could not support Quattrin in his bid. CLARESHOLM (Staff) The Town of Claresholm will miss a chance to save as much as by not acting as its own general contractor on the water supply system extension, Mayor Ernie Patterson said Thursday. Mayor Patterson's motion that the town act as its own general contractor was 'defeated at this week's coun- cil meeting. Approved was Coun. Harold Seymour's motion that the town instruct its engineering consultant, Underwood, McLellan and Associates, to advertise the water supply system extension for public tender. "Basically the expansion will provide for more treat- ment and pumping Mayor Patterson told The Herald Thursday in a telephone interview. Water lines from Willow Creek', source of the town's supply six miles west of town, have been cleaned out and will not be replaced. "Basically what we are go- ing to do is use the existing line and pump at a greater said the mayor. Disappointed that council chose to tender, the mayor said: "There is one thing about it, in all fairness, some of the councillors were a little worried about a section in the municipal act that says if a town undertakes a project like this where large sums of money are borrowed, coun- cillors could be liable if we don't stay within the borrow- ing bylaw limits." But the mayor said this would have been extremely unlikely with the consulting engineer helping the town. The mayor said the town Monday, March 3, 1975 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 13 Ex-official of hospital asks hearing FERNIE (Special) The former chairman of the Fer- nie District Hospital board says charges that the Fernie Memorial Hospital is being poorly administered won't be settled until a public hearing is held. Rev. J. J. Morelli also said the five trustees who resigned last November should be provided with legal counsel to act at the proposed public hearing and that the province should be responsible for the legal costs. The former board chairman and former trustees Florence Starr and Mrs. trem Yourchek met recently with John Howard, government appointed administrator selected last November to look after affairs of the hospital. Missing because of business reasons were former trustees John Salus and Edward Kathol. Rev Morelli says the meeting was very congenial and that, in his opinion, Mr. Howard was made aware of "many facts not previously known to him." Rev. Morelli said he is ada- mant in his position on the matter. "I will see this thing through until one side or the other is proven he said. "If anyone can prove the charges I have made are un- true, then I will admit I was wrong." Rev. Morelli says he has documentary evidence to back up every charge he has made with respect to the problem at the hospital. The three former trustees say that problems at the hospital were reflecting adversely on patient care- Mr. Howard was not im- mediately available for com- ment as he has returned to Vancouver for a week or two, a hospital authority said Wednesday. had already ordered by tender all the equipment necessary for the water system.
