Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March 23, 1974 THE LETHMIDOE HERALD 11 Taber MD notes surplus TABER (Staff) The Taber Municipal District has reported a surplus of on its 1973 operations with total revenue amounting to and expenditures totalling The mil! rates last year were municipal, 21.4; school foundation program, 30.5; Taber school division, 19.4, or Taber Roman Catholic school division, 22.3. Special levy mill rates were: health unit, 5, Taber Foundation, 11; agricultural service board, 1.3; fire protection area one, 1 5, and fire protection area two, 1. Assessments totalled- land, buildings and improvements, power line, and pipe line, Ratepayer Frank Rabusic, rising at the annual electors' meeting here Wednesday attended by about 30 people, said "If all these figures represent greenbacks, I haven't seen so much green since St Patncks's Day. I was always under the impression the hospital ran at a deficit. Who picked up the tab on this'" Secretary treasurer Douglas Francis answered that in 1973 the provincial government passed legislation that all hospital requisitions would be picked up by the government. Coun. Ron Johnson of Barnwell noted the same thing applies to health units. "They are picking these requisitions up but not social services." Mr Rabusic called the meeting's attention to in taxes receivable and also for taxes receivable on property acquired for taxes. Mr. Francis clarified this by noting that "over the course of the years since the MD was started in 1913 some property has reverted back to the MD through tax recovery procedures and taxes have accumulated. These tax arrears are taxes owing on that type of property." He said that when land is disposed of, any proceeds must go first to paying up tax arrears owing. Reeve Clarence M. Jes- persen said that council has the right to cancel these taxes. In answer to another ques- tion regarding revenue of for commissions on homeowner's grants, the secretary treasurer said the MD receives from the province for every valid application processed. Noting costs of for social welfare, another ratepayer wanted to know if these people have applied for unemployment insurance. The secretary said: "If they have enough credits they can qualify for it. In the case of these people, most of them, period, just don't have jobs. Some apply for public assistance to tide them over until they get their unemployment insurance." He1 said the amount paid out in 1973 for social welfare was only half of what has been paid out in other years. Coun. Johnson, council's representative on the Barons- Eureka Health Unit, said preventive social service is working well and finding jobs for people.

Cas well location troubles irrigation BURNABY, BC (CP) The chairman of a new rangeland committee says rangelands of the British Columbia interior are suited to uses from ranching to forestry if properly managed Dr Alastair McLean, appointed in January as chairman of the province's inter departmental committee on rangeland management, made the comments in a lecture during forestry week at the B.C. Institute of Technology. He said rangeland management should not consist of restricting the land to only one use at a time. "Citizens are demanding an ever-growing voice in land-use he said. "These decisions may be based on climate, soils, economics and user preference but we must remember that user preference may outweight economics in the minds of many people." Dr McLean is a range geologist for the federal government in Kamloops, on loan to the provincial government committee. The rangelands of B.C are particularly well suited to integrated he said "Several users and integrated groups can be accommodated in the management plan ior one area SEED CONTRACTS High Prices CMtnctiMwmHiMifor PEAS and other SEED CROPS COLUMBIA SEED Co.

BROOKS (Staff) Farmers and oil industry representatives agreed here this week gas wells should not be drilled in the centre of quarter sections of land. Wells situated in the middle of such portions of land make irrigation difficult, representatives of the Eastern Irrigation District Landholder Association and the Eastern Irrigation District told a public hearing of the Energy Resources Conservation Board. PanCanadian Petroleum in its submission said: "PanCanadian recognizes that present oilfield practices cause some problems to the landowners who irrigate using sprinkler systems and is prepared, where possible, to adjust its operations to alleviate the problem Alberta Eastern Gas Limited, the other oil company who made a submission at the hearing, said in its submission modifications to the existing regulations for gas well spacing "are both desirable and feasible." Although the hearing was to deal with oil wells also, the two companies who made submissions drilled primarily gas wells in the irrigation district and these were the wells the farmers were concerned about. Don Alberts of the landholders' group told the board there should be consultation between farmer and oilmen before wells are drilled. He said maybe the oil industry was overlooking things and should get the agricultural side of it. Cam Miller of PanCanadian said he was mystified by Mr. Albert's statement because it was his company's policy to notify the landowner as to where the wells were going. Most companies follow this policy, he claimed. The Energy Resources Conservation Board says where on the land the wells may be drilled. It is the board's current policy that all wells on quarter section and sections be drilled in the centre. Mr. Miller said the new policy should be uniform but also have flexibility. If it was decided all wells should be in the northwest corner of quar- ter sections then there should be some leeway so that if there were some buildings in that corner on a particular section the well site could be switched to another corner.
