Umitad, Doaa'a COMMISSIONS TO OPERATE PUBLIC UTILITIES The Herald wishes to impress upon the ratepayers and the property own- ers of Lethbridge the great import- in a, successful erihip policy, of having the separate gublic utilities managed by separate elective commissions, uniesa' where two utilities are handled by the same superintending staff, when one com- mission might cover the utilities. We must start right. An elective commission of three, composed of the Mayor and two commissions, the lat- ter elected" for two year terms, one OUR POINT OF VIEW Get together, everybody and boost Lethbridge. The city wonts a progressive Couij- cii.again next year. The city is full of men, well quali- fied to give the city good servica- on the Council. The.

When commissioners hav'e to be ol- for a certain specified duty, the ratepayers almost invariably get the services of "some of the best business heads in the city. And the reason is" an explosion of obvious. Busy men handling large have-been concerns will serve on these crununs sions when, they will not'serve on tho Council, because on the Commission they have a certaia specified iinsh-.of 'wort to .be administered "on business principles which will not involve too great a their time and thought, and m- which they have a reasonably tree hand. The smaller body works more harmoniously and intelligently, handles its business and staff more systematically, has great- er "control over its officers and, above all, secures a certainty of policy, a following up of well thought out plans from year to year, more than is possible with a larger body, chang- ing from year to year, and concerned with a multiplicity of other import ant duties. There is not a, city in Ontario that the Herald knows of but what has found the Commission idea of manage ment far preferable to that of Committee of Council. It is the sue cess of tha Commission which has spelt success for al own ership in Oatirio; which has brough the p-owcr aU its awl economic possibilities into being-, and the strength of that movement can be guagcd to a large extent by the vote cast for the Whit- ney, government candidates last June.
