Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta may Community-county agreement Forty-Mile adopts hamlet well policy The Herald- District FOREMOST The County of Forty Mile council has approved a policy for the repair and upkeep of hamlet wells. Under the plan a community organization or group will be responsible for labor and upkeep costs of its hamlet well and the county will pay for mechanical parts replacements which have the prior approval of the municipal supervisor. It was the result of a study and drafting of a policy by secretary treasurer Roy Wallman and a suggestion by Coun. William George McFall He couldn't the municipal supervisor be authorized to approve small expenditures9 We have faith in his otherwise he wouldn't be our The county has title to the property for wells at Manyberries and Skiff but not for the well at Etzikom. Coun. Lyle Nattrass said it was a problem at Manyberries to find someone to look after the community used by a few people. Coun. McFall suggested they form a water co-op. Boundaries of the Chin Coulee Natural Gas Co-operative were not approved by the council until it is learned what happens to people in the area who are already being serviced by other co-ops. William Kenneth Babe said people in isolated areas who are difficult to serve have been left out. He said some people are not wanted in any of the several co-ops because they are costly to serve. Council decided to reserve frontage on Rattlesnake Lake on the advice of the Medicine Hat Regional Planning Commission. Council considered accepting 10 per cent cash in lieu of the park reserve on a proposed subdivision but decided to take the land. A park now two miles north of the area could it was decided. The five-mile lake will be drawing Medicine Hat citizens said Coun. because Elkwater is becoming overcrowded. Council decided to seek a meeting with Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne to reaffirm that the 25- mile Seven Persons to Orion highway has council's priority for paving Coun. Frank Romeike said the department easily do it in two He said the road needs regraveiling but it is going to be done in two years we could just spot gravel Coun. McFall said is on their to pave it through to Wild Horse to hook up with U.S. blacktop. Council decided to divide the county into areas and proceed with a bylaw in each area on road allowances. This is to carry out the policy of making sure road allowance lease rentals are paid. Council decided farmers receive protection by leasing road allowances of and should pay for the privilege. Said Coun. may want to buy that protection for two bits an acre and if Joe Blow doesn't want to buy that is his Coun. Romeike we should buy a combine and harvest them But Coun Nattrass is a terrific shortage of combines right Cranbrook hopes to use sewage as fertilizer CRANBROOK With less than two years to conform to provincial city council has approved a expenditure for professional advice on its sewage disposal system. The sewage could be used as fertilizer to grow alfalfa. The goal is to end piping of primary treated sewage from Borrowing rate at per cent CARDSTON -Town council Monday night was informed the Alberta Municipal Finance Corporation rate for borrowing will be pegged at per annum June 1. The rate on debentures must be stated to exceed 10-per-cent per annum The Cardston Agricultural Society has sent a cheque for to the town to aid with the Cardston multi-purpose arena Cardston town council has agreed to meet on the second and fourth Mondays of each month Council has approved a on a motion by Coun. Wanda for the Cardston High School Band's trip to Expo at Spokane The band left Saturday Coun. Don Caldwell said it was not fair to bring it to council again as the original request had been rejected by council but Coun. Jensen said it was only discussed earlier a motion had not been put forward. Planners with the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission met with council to discuss Marathon Realty's request for a subdivision of CPR one-year leaseholds. its city lagoons irito Joseph Creek. This little stream travels through a three-mile canyon into St. Marys the south boundary of the St. Marys Indian Reserve. The area is known locally as the Airport Road. It is developing steadily into a residential area. The expenditure will pay for a report from William Oldham of the University of B C He will make a feasibility study on possible such as a pipeline through the same canyon from the existing city plant It would include improvements to reduce the bacteria count The second alternative would be a scheme for constructive use of the lagoon effluent. This would be pipeline for some three miles northeast in the vicinity of the former railway right of way to Isadore the massive rock lookout of Indian history. The effluent would be stored in tanks and then used on Rampart Flats to grow forage crops. The forest on these flats is mostly ponderosa and the nature of the soil coupled with a dry allows only brief annual grazing and some Christmas tree stands The theory of this latter proposal is to store over winter tanked effluent for other season irrigation for such crops as alfalfa and timothy hay It would be a modest revenue support for the city disposal system. It would also free Joseph Creek and ease the pollution burden the St Marys River carries from Mark Creek through Wycliffe to Fort Steele where it joins the Kootenay River Cranbrook's sewage gets primary treatment in lagoon sedimentation and partial secondary treatment in lagoon aereation which effluent 80 to 90 per cent BoD free. This conceivably could be reduced even further with additional chemical effluent treatment The effluent would then provide fertilization quality which could grow nitrogenous crops on the flats. With beef-growing increasing yearly in the economics of East and apparently now a stable industry for feeder cattle in the national provision of forage crops could fill a pressing need for locally produced feed The City of Vernon was the pilot project in this constructive use of final sewage effluent in the Okanagan Valley It has been so successful the problem is now to find further land on which to use it. 'Hat teachers settle Agreement has been reached on a new contract for 289 teachers employed by the Medicine Hat public school system. The providing for an over-all increase of 16 03 per cent in salaries and is the first major collective agreement for 1975 reached by Alberta teachers and their school boards Under the new teachers with two years of training and no experience would receive a minimum of Teachers with six years of post secondary education and 11 years of experience would receive a maximum of CARDSTON Council down on speculators CARDSTON Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes Monday night won the support of Cardston town council in his battle with land speculators he don't contribute anything to a community. Mayor Sykes' plan calls for establishment of a fair assessment for existing land owned by farmers. Upon transfer of this land would be immediately reassessed. Where active farming the land would be reassessed and taxed accordingly. The province would levy a special profits tax on land sales by speculators and this money would be returned to the municipality in which Ihe transaction took thus offsetting the local Granum man Elks officer FERNIE Charles Wesley of Granum has been appointed district deputy grand exalted ruler of Elks District 2 Mr Wesley will be installed later this summer He replaces Don Harrod of the Fernie lodge President Fred Garner of Calgary spoke on the Elks' deaf detection program and indicated that a second bus equipped with deaf detection equipment has been purchased for Alberta This bus will be for the southern part of the province. Cost of the unit was He said that every province in the west now has a bus and that many deficiencies of government's cost supplying services Only land sales to a non- improver for speculative purposes would be says Mayor Sykes. Secretary-treasurer Keith Bevans started discussion by noting town has always maintained sufficient land it can sell at a reasonable to curb speculation. He noted speculators are moving into the Raymond area now because of the forecast of a new fertilizer plant development Mayor Sykes-says people in public office would pay double the tax on the special profits. Said Coun Don has got some good points. I agree there are some wrinkles in it but I favor the idea He added that land only should be taxed not improvements. Mayor Lloyd Gregson said public servants cannot deal in land under terms of the municipal act. But he is nothing to stop a man in public office from telling his friends Mayor a local supermarket said the fairest tax is the sales tax as a businessman I would hate to collect Gas tactics J mulled CARDSTON Town council Monday night decided to get legal advice on its contract with Canadian Western Natural Gas H Co for the supply of natural gas to the town. our contract is Il- legally we will just say good-bye jsee you in three V secretary-treasurer Keith Bevans told council. if the gas company can reaise its rates .v Magrath and Stirling will combine forces to draft a brief -j opposing the increase before the public utilities board.
