Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, March 14, 1974 THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD 19 Land-use forum said concerned with production of food WARNER (Staff) Reeve J, H. Otto told the Warner County Tuesday he thinks the Alberta land use forum, now gathering information on the use of land throughout the province, is tied in with the upcoming new planning act. Reeve Otto said, "I think they are getting kind of concerned over food production and I think part of the idea is to try to keep as much land in production as possible." Coun. Elda Mueller of Wrentham said some highway construction is not necessary and it takes prime farm land out of production. She also said rural people don't look at land use- the same way the people in the cities do. The government will likely put the land use information in a machine, let the answer come out, and be satisified but rural people wouldn't do it that way. "I don't see what it will ever produce that is going to be said Coun. Ed Pittman. Public hearings will be held by the land use forum later this year and early in 1975. The hearings will be held throughout the province. Briefs from private citizens and groups will be accepted. The final phase of the forum's work will be to compile all the information and submit a report to government with its recommendations. Terms of reference include: the family farm; multi-use of agricultural land; use of agricultural land for recreational purposes; land in urban areas as it affects the cost of housing; corporation farms and communal farming; common ownership of 'land; land use and population distribution; and the historical rights of land- owners. Members are Dr. B. A. Wood, R. W. Brown and J. E. Davis. Some studies will also be done by consulting firms. The public discussion phase to allow public formulation of views and opinions will take four to six months and will be completed before the end of 1974. Warner briefs More recreation funds sought WARNER (Staff) The Warner County council Tuesday dealt with a number of brief items before going into a committee of the whole to discuss the Alberta Boundaries Commission's work. No one from the council will attend the Hudsons Bay Route Association convention to be held at Lloydminster, Sask., April 29 and 30. Coun. Ed Pittman said the association is making very little progress Property reduction plan explained to county council WARNER (Staff) Alberta homeowner grants are out and the Alberta Property Reduction Plan is in and everybody seems to be wondering how the revisions will affect them, next year. A letter from W. D. Isbister, deputy minister of municipal affairs, to the County of Warner council Tuesday threw some light on the situation. He wrote that last year a homeowner could easily determine his entitlment. But municipal offices will now have to show the amount of the school foundation levy on each tax notice, even though that levy is not included in the total taxes owing. This way the individual owning arid occupying lower assessed property can identify the additional assistance to which he is entitled, prepare his application for that assistance and forward it together with his tax notice to the department of municipal affairs. Mr. Isbister said the revised program will see substantial reductions in the amounts that municipalities formerly contributed to the basic costs of education (the school foundation "In addition, it provides for much simplified procedures whereby residential property will continue to receive the benefits of reduced requisitions." He says the fund from which 'municipal assistance and incentive grants are to be paid has been increased by 15 per cent, that increase amounting to million. "It is anticipated that we may be in a position to provide each municipality with the 1974 municipal grant amounts in the near said the deputy minister. The necessary legislation and budgetary .approval must be passed by the legislature row in session. His letter makes these points: The education tax refund is now an exemption. The tax reduction program of 1973 will take a different form. The revised program will remove the necessity of municipalities dealing with individual applications for residences. Municipalities will simply not levy a mill rate for provincial school foundation purposes, on these classes of residences: Single family, duplex, three- plex, four-plex and mobile residential homes. A "home" can also be an owner occupied suite in an apartment building, a commercial of industrial building. There are still quite a number of situations where the owner of apartment buildings will occupy one suite as their home. Also there are numerous commercial and a few industrial buildings where the owner occupies a portion of a building as his permanent home. Crowsnest Pass Bureau VERNON DECOUX.

Council learned the government decided to do something two years ago but the treasury board wouldn't allocate money so nothing was done. Coun. Elda Mueller of Wrentham told council the county northern recreation board will take a census in rural areas and to count every head" with a view to increasing recreation grant ratings. Coun. Murray Holt of Raymond moved that no tax sale of property be held until the late fall. Taxes are not a problem, Reeve J. H. Otto noted. The county southern region recreation board has approved a raise and increased mileage allowance for 1974 Summer Games co- ordinator Andy Grasspointer. Regarding the Milk River multi-purpose complex, council requested a formal budget and special area designation for any possible mill rate increase to raise recreation funds. New Dayton .and Coutts have indicated they don't want to be included in the area, therefore the southern region won't be burdened with the increase as a whole. Council discussed a one-mill increase as being inadequate for the purpose required. Two mills is closer to the mark, they agreed. In an aside, Coun. Murray Holt said the Town of Raymond levies 10 mills for recreation. Council approved the sale of two lots for each to the new owner of the New Dayton Hotel, the lots being opposite the hotel. Walter Oakley of Lundbreck is the new owner. He won't reside at New Dayton the lots are for the hotel manager's mobile home. Council approved a grant to the Sunnyside Cemetery near the southeast border of the county and located in the County of Forty-Mile to aid in building a new fence. The cemetery was started in 1911. Heritage Site Services will be aided by councillors in the location of small cemeteries and lonely graves, mostly forgotten, throughout the county. Its list will aid STEP projects this summer whereby students gain summer employment. The county will mark grave sites on a map and send it to the organization. Coun. Murray Holt's motion was approved designating the week of May 6 to 12 as Anti- Litter Week in the county. Council decided it was not necessary to appoint a co- ordinator. The week will be proclaimed in an advertisement in the Raymond Review to "draw people's attention to it" Retired uratts volunteer brigade fire chief Henry Hacke will be formally commended for his service. A letter was requested by Coun. Kd Pi it man and will be sent by secretary treasurer Ken Duncan. Council will meet a! p.m. March 38 in a special session with Oldman River Regional Planning Commission associate planner Jay Simons to further consider the proposed development control bylaw. H appears the bylaw is now a certainty. The morning. 5l3rting at o'clock, will be devoted to a perusal of applications (or the position of county utilities officer.
