Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta March 91, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGf HERALD 3 surplus 10 lots available FORT MACLEOD (Special) decision to burn the mortgage in 1974 rather than go into debenture borrow- ing to complete the west end of the arena spurred varied reac- tions from ratepayers. The recent annual meeting of the Town of Fort Maeleod saw council chambers unable to seat all interested citizens. The financial report brought a diluge of questions which were dealt with by Mayor George Buzunis and councillors John Davis, Phil Hodnett, Charlie Edgar, Grant Day and Ron Tilbe. The secretary-trea- surer is Roy White. EKRHD offers suggestions for uniform cost-sharing During the year, power, sew er service and paving were ex- tended. There are 10 available lots. A contractor has asked to buy a block for 18 houses. A large sewage disposal plant may be required. The council decision to pur- chase a second-hand fire truck and carpeting met with a mix- ed reaction. The financial situation shows an overall surplus of Interest in the meeting would indicate the town is going into its centennial year without the apathy common to small towns. NATAL (HNS) draft let- ter to the B.C. Health Security Program Project, by the board of the East Koolenay Regional Hospital District, will be drawn up before the next board meet- ing. Suggestions from the EKRHD are expected t o in- clude a uniform method of sharing costs, a redrawing of boundaries to include the Gold- en and Creston areas, which are included in the East Koo- tenay Health Unit, but not tho EKRHD, and more leeway for regional hospital board direc- tors, who are elected officials. Recent discussion indicated directors see a trend toward re- gional rather than local con- trol. Such a trend was de- scribed in a federal health caie .study released about a year ago and is supported by a con- tinuing erosion of the powers of local hospital boards. Two historical signs wanted Barbecue set FORT MACLEOD (Spe- cial) The Fort Maeleod Fish and Game Association will hold a 525 a plate beef stag barbecue March 31. Prizes will total Proceeds will be used to further work on the Fort Maeleod Centennial Park. TABER (HNS) Two "point of interest" historical signs are being requested by the Tabor Chamber of Com- merce to replace a single sign removed from Highway 3 prior to tho rebuilding of the highway through Taber in 1967. The' two would be lo- cated at either entrance to Taber, each within the inter- seel ions of Highway 3 and Highway 36 north and south. Subsequent to the original sign by the department of liighways and re- sponsibility for the signs has been transferred to. the de- partment of culture, youth and recreation tlirough tbe museum and archives divi- sion. A recent search has been unable to locate the original sign. It described the beet sugar industry in Alberta now centred at Talwr. The' chamber has offered to rec- ommend wording for the two now requested. Chamber plans include the installation of chamber "Wel- come" signs alongside the historical signs, allowing mo- torists to see both at the same highway turnout. The proposal was discuss- ed here recently with Tom McGreer, Lethbridge district engineer for the department of highways. A formal re- quest has now been made to the director of museums and archives for Alberta, R. 0. Harrison. Also discussed with Mr. McGrccr was a proposal for a tourist "lay-by" for trailers and trucks between Highway 3 and Hie CPR railway tracks on land now being offered for lease or sale by Marathon Realty of Calgary. The chamber will request the town council to have ac- ceptable plans drawn up by the pldman River Region Planning Commission prior to making firm recommenda- tions to Marathon and the de- partment of highways. At its genera! membership meeting April 5, the Taber chamber will nominate a di- rector for Zone 25 of the Al- berta Chamber of Commerce. The membership drive now under way vail stress atten- dance at that meeting.

Farm land slippage dismissed TABER (IINS) A report of slippage toward the Oldman River of farm land (irrigated with Taber's lagooned sewage) has been dismissed as unfound- ed by Mike Powell, town coun- cillor in charge. The report was made at a re- cent meeting of the Taber MD council when consideration was given to an application by the Town of Taber to purchase 800 acres of additional crown land north of the river to expand its sprinkler operations. The application was tabled by the MD council pending in- formation concerning the need and future use of the land fol- lowing a report made at the council meeting that the sew- age saturated land is "seeping toward the river." Said Mr. Powell, "As far as I know, the report is hogwash." He said that lie had heard earlier suggestions that a de- terioration at the river bank might be caused by seepage from the lagoons but the farm land is three-quarters of a mile from the river and slippage of farm land is unlikely.
