CARDSTON (Staff) If there was any important business discussed at Monday's meeting of the Cardston MD, it was discussed in the two long, secret sessions held during the morning and afternoon. Council kicked the press out at 11 a.m. for an hour-long meeting with Reeve George Whitehead of the Willow Creek MD and then went into a committee of the whole meeting again at p.m. Reeve Harold Jensen hinted that the work of the Alberta boundaries commission was to be discussed behind the closed door This could involve losing, or gaining an area from or to the MD. But before council pulled the blinds and closed the shutters it noted one happy development people are paying their taxes in the Cardston MD. "We started last year with in tax said secretary-treasurer Roy Legge. "This year we are starting with only in arrears so we are ahead Tax collections were good last year." But he said the total MD assessment will dip slightly in 1974. Rangeland, which comprises most of the southwest portion of the MD, was adjusted downward after the original assessment a decade ago. Council learned the assessor feels cultivated land is carrying more than its share of the MD taxes. In other business: Council authorized MD employee Holland Hawthorne to attend a pesticide training course to be held at Olds March 18 and 29. "There are always new chemicals being manufactured and I think he should go up and find out what it is all about" said Reeve Harold Jensen. Council learned MD builders will have to abide by the new regulations under the new Alberta Uniform Building Standards Act. The regulations are set out in the act Any building bylaws a municipality now has are null and void, said secretary- treasurer Roy Legge. He said the new act is designed more for urban areas but it will affect rural contractors too. It will raise the cost of building in towns. Ranchers Smith, Wood and West of the Mountain View area (precise names were not released) have received a renewal for 20 years on a grazing lease in Waterton Lakes National Park The renewal came through from the department of lands and forests "I didn't think they were going to have any more of these 20-year said secretary-treasurer Roy Legge. "At today's present trends, 20 years is a long fime." Council learned another lease, one mile will come up again soon. The MD taxes the lease and the rancher pays the lease fee on top of that Fire losses appeared to total in the Cardston MD last year but actually they were much higher because uninsured buildings that burned were not included in the listing. Three separate Huttente colony fires were not included and there were other fires as well. Coun. Bob Arnold of Del Bonita suggested that each fire chief submit a complete list of all fire losses to council each month. Council agreed. Under the new police act, the MD can set speed limits up to 60 m.p.h. on secondary roads but doesn't set road bans respecting the weight of vehicles. The MD still is responsible for maintenance. The province must exercise some control, said a directive from the solicitor-general, because it is heavily involved in paying for paving programs. Council indicated it might ask for a recreation zone in the Mountain View to Waterton Lakes National Park boundary area. The Cardston MD is receiving numerous applications for summer homes in this general area. "I know another guy wants one on the Belly River and another on the Waterton River." noted Coun. Keith Olsen of Glenwood. "You will have all these areas that are good for this type of thing taken up with 10 or 20-acre parcels." Coun. Ken Beswick of Spring Coulee said he favors recreational living on marginal land that only supports about eight cows per section per year. Wayne and Ruby Leavitt of Leavitt appeared before council to protest a tax bill for 17 acres "that should only be about or Mr. Leavitt said he has been burdened with nearly in taxes over two years that he is not required to pay because he also owns another 160 acres and his sole occupation is farming Council told the couple assessment appeals must be filled in January but council will consider an adjustment. It was tabled for farther study. MD residents face endless red tape By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor CARDSTON Red tape and government regulations are throttling personal initiative and depriving citizens in the Cardston MD of their basic freedoms, MD councillors agreed Monday But there doesn't seem to be any answer to the endless stream of application forms and permits citizens have to obtain when erecting something as simple as a barn on their land MD secretary-treasurer Roy Legge told council, and the councillors seemed to agree, that a citizen who wants to erect a quanset hut has to parade through a score of government offices to get a number of official okays before he can pour a foundation or lift a hammer This view was spurred by an application for a development permit, necessary under the MD's new development control bylaw, by Don Leavitt for a quanset building. He is erecting it on a small acreage just south of Cardston After cutting through reams of red tape, said the secretary-treasurer, Mr. Leavitt now finds himself faced with the prospect of meeting department of environment regulations. These, not mandatory but definitely advisory, are set out in the Code of Practises issued by the department of the environment. Coun. Ken Beswick of Spring Coulee said the department of the environment was doing a job in that it was now impossible to feed cattle and have them pour their wastes into the rivers. But Coun. David Wilde of Welling wondered if the situation had actually been all that bad. Council agreed it is time to amalgamate all the various governmental departments and agencies, from which permits must be obtained, under one tag and behind one door possibly the department of red tape and bureaucracy It won't be the MD office in Cardston. "We're just one little cog in the wheel said the secretary-treasurer. Council granted a development permit to Bob Manzke Trucking Ltd of Del Bonita to install fuel pumps at the store there. With the closing of the garage, said Coun Bob Arnold of Del Bonita, "Prosperity Peak" did not have a gasoline outlet and this will be rectified by Mr Manzke's firm. Rene Peirens of Spring Coulee received a permit to build a home in the village. At the same time he suggested council go into the village and clean up some of the eyesores there. An application from Ted Holland, for a mobile home on a farm near Woolford Provincial Park, was okayed. An application by Dale Lowry of Cardston for a development east of town is still pending, council learned Just what it is pending, nobody said, but possibly it is mired in the swampy land of governmental regulations. Coun. Bob Arnold of Del Bonita said there are too many regulations pertaining to the agriculture industry which are detrimental to agriculture. He said it was ridiculous the number of permits you have to ..obtain if you want to build a cattle shed The secretary-treasurer said the development control bylaw is only one more regulation in a chain of government regulations that leave the private citizen bewildered and frustrated. The average citizen doesn't know where to begin any more, councillors agreed. Coun. David Wilde of Welling said council thought last year when it passed the development control bylaw it would gain some control over the situation. "1 think the place where we can allow subdivisions is the only place we have some said Coun Wilde The Herald- District Seed cleaning plant may get okay Thursday CARDSTON (Staff) Do Cardston area farmers want a seed cleaning plant9 They have been talking about it for three years talking but not acting. The plant could get the go- ahead Thursday when a meeting of prospective shareholders will be held here. "We are now at the stage of accepting the sale of said Cardston MD secretary- treasurer Roy Legge Monday "We hope to finalize it Thursday The MD has applied to the provincial government for a grant Coun. Shelton Rine of Magrath said farmers must decide Thursday if they want to go ahead or "drop it." Mr Legge said it is amazing the amount of business "these small seed cleaning plants will do in a year." A total of bushels were cleaned at the Craddock plant last year, bushels were cleaned at Granum, and bushels at Milk River. Ag society organized MAGRATH (HNS) The Agricultural Society has been organized with Mark Passey president and Norman Christensen and Dean Anderson as vice-presidents. Ann Murray is secretary.
