12-THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD May 1974 Banff report released BANFF. Alta. A federal government report released during the weekend says residents of this national park town should be given greater control of their own affairs. But it stressed that Ottawa should remain in charge of planning the role and final size of the town of Banff. The recommendations came from an interim report of a federally appointed committee studying how the townsite is governed. It suggests a local governing body be set up under the National Parks Act to provide for local services and administration and to establish and collect local taxes. The local group would thus take over many of the responsibilities now held by federal administrators. The report says that while there should be more consultation with local residents in planning the responsibility for planning the shape and role of the townsite lies with Parks It says the leasehold system of land holding should although the security of tenure of leases should be improved and the system of payment of lease charges should be made more equal. It adds that the principle required employment in a national park to qualify for residency must be strengthened and FARMERS AND TRUCKERS Don't be half safe Install a brand new engine and re-power your truck for spring and summer work Restore like-new performance and efficiency.
