Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, MAY SCHOOL TAX DEBATED Irrigated, Dry Land Problems Proposed plane of the department of education to reconstruct boun- daries of school divisions came under discussion at a well attended conference of .government officials and of municipality snd school divisions from this part of the province which was held in the Y.3C.C.A. auditorium Tuesday afternoon.

Oviatt of Taber and Superin- tendent Owen Williams of bridge. After explanation by Hon. Mr. Gerhart of the government's long term plan to make divisional and municipal boundaries coterminous. Inspector Oviatt made a plea that the Taber division be left outside any reconstruction of boundaries that might be envisioned as this school system had been built at a tremendous amount of effort and was now on the way to functioning ss a unit. Several councillors declared that they believed that by making edu- cational and municipality boundar- ies identical better co-operation and co-ordination in cosMnunity affairs would result. Administration would be simplified and taxation ambigu- ities removed. The problem puzzling many pres- ent was to find a sound reason for the sharp difference in mill rate between the Lethbridge and Foot- hills former being 19 and the latter 10. This situation was of special interest to a few who reside at the north end of the Lethbridge division, inside the block on the north side of the Little Bow river. Officials explained that the Foothills district had fewer schools and lower educational costs than the Lethbridge division. Hieh Assessment Another sore point was the high assessment on "dry land in the THE HERALD'S CITY NEWS PAGE PAGE SEVEN SHEEP SHEARING SCHOOL AT FARM Attendance at the sheep shearing school being conducted at the Ex- perimental .Farm.

Champion and Carznacgay districts, where crops often failed, in order to provide revenue to support schools in the thickly settled" irri- gated area. If nas a ques5ion of services, farmers not mind pay- ing for value received but this was not always the case. The northern districts had to pay heavy taxes but it was children on the irrigation and the deep south who received the finest ecucatiorial benefits. In the opinion of the chairman, William Ckcsr. educatiOEa! expenses within the division could not be met under the present system of taxaiion based on land. He called for a provincial mill rate, and more assistance from the provincial and federal governments. Her. Peter Dawson suggested that a production lax was the only solution for assessment ineQualiries. Hon. Mr. Gerhar; explained that a new of assessaient was now being employed by his depart- ment which was thought zo be the most equitable yet devised but that it had failed to provide a fair ratio of taxation between the cry and the irrigated regions. One or two factors had been left out of con- sideration, he thought, and suggest- ed that one of them might be rhe added value irrigated land receives when its crops are contracted to a local cannerv or sugar refinery. Inspector Oviatt was in favor of an added requisitions! tax for dis- tricts supplied with special educa- tional services. In summing up points brought out in the discussion Mr. Ansley said that it would be possible to transfer the block north of the river to the Foothills division, though that would not solve the I fundamental difficulty ia financing the division which, lay in the cis- crepancy in population between the densely settled irrigation areas and the sparsely filled "dry land region. He promised that no changes j would be made in the Lethbridge i division during the current year and that the government would take under study any suggestions OfRetaflMeat Retail meat price schedules la Lethbridge are being overhauled to meet the increase of wo cents per pound which weat into effect at the beginning of ihis week in wholesale prices of red ami blue label beef carcasses bat the new consumer prices will not go above the ceihng. the Herald was told today by several local dealers. They explained tnai prices c-n nianv cuts of would remain -several" cents below the permissi- ble ceiling ei.en after they are in- creased, and that some prices may not change at all. They estimated that, generally speaking, the over- all increase in beef retail prices would be couple of cents r. pound." Most of the dealers explained that ia the pass few beef pnces here were up to the retail ceilings "be- cause we would not be able to sell some of the cuts at the to? pnces and the result has been tnat our margin of profit has been very narrow. we have to------------ of our prices to take higher buving costs." WONT PAY MORE One dealer stated that while price ceiling regulations permitted hira to charge 54 cents per pound for certain cuts he was selling them at 43 cents "because no one would oav any more." With a comparatively wide mar- gin existing between the pnces re- tailers here had been charging for beef and the ceiling pnces. they felt they could arrive at their new prices without exceeding the ceil- ing, but that in an odd case the new price will be the ceiling. Some small dealers explained that they have been paying the addi- tional two cents per pound for whole carcasses for some unie to packing houses came out and flatly refused to buy meat under the ceiling." They add- ed "the only way we could get enough good beef was by paying the extra two cents." Those who had been paying the higher prices for carcasses for sev- eral weeks have been, charging cor- respondingly higher retail prices ana hope to meet the official in- crease in wholesale ceilings with- out great difficulty.
