Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Coaldale council to ask for new building COALDALE (HNS) Town council has introduced a bylaw to borrow for a new administration building here and is now awaiting Stavely folks to vote CLARESHOLM (Staff) Residents of the Stavely cultural and recreation area will vote Dec. 9, on whether they favor a two mill increase for recreation purposes. The two mills would be levied by the Willow Creek Municipal District on residents of the recreation area. Revenue from the tax hike would be used to complete the skating arena and to assist the Town of Stavely in operational expenses. Voting will take place between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. at the Stavely Community Centre. The referendum was spurred by opposition to the MD's proposed tax hike bylaw. A simple majority will decide the question. Hunters 'standard Hunters unknowingly wandering into Waterton Park is a "standard problem" with all national parks during hunting season and that's why warden service is extended to patrol park boundries, a park official said Thursday. It was indicated at a recent Cardston MD council meeting that Waterton Park was hav- ing a problem with poachers, but Tom Smith, superinten- dent of the park said there is no major problem. "In a lot of cases it's not just poachers, but people getting lost or wandering into the park when they shouldn't be. There is no hunting allowed at any time in Waterton Mr. Smith said. He stated that the park has six full time wardens and six seasonal wardens in the summertime. In the fall and winter months three of the seasonal wardens are let go and three are kept on staff. "The nine wardens on staff each winter partol the park and park the superintendent said. Mr. Smith was reported to have told the Cardston MD council there were 62 people prosecuted last year and warnings issued. "But those figures were for the whole year and they weren't just for Mr. Smith said. "We have had only a few cases of actual poaching." approval of the provincial local authorities board. The building, to be located next to the Coaldale Centen- nial Library, will house town offices, the court house and the Barons Eureka Health Unit. Council noted that all trailers, with one exception, have been moved to the new trailer site provided by the town. The cost of the move and hook-up of facilities was borne by the individual owners. Because of the way the facilities were put into the in- dividual pads the price varied depending on how much extra wire and pipe they had to purchase. Council granted permission for a booster installation here for two way radios. A bylaw has been approved requiring all real estate agen- cies to purchase a Coaldale license for business. Council was informed that court will be reinstated within the town Nov. 26. A motion was passed that all groups interested in obtain- ing ice time be notified by letter as to the date of the arena management com- mittee meeting.

Friday, November 15, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Road still poor, grower alleges Season's end A youth skipped a flat stone across the placid water of St. Mary's Reservoir near Spring Coulee during the bluebird weather ex- pected to end soon. The stone-skipping too will end, as the reser- voir will be covered with, ice before much, time passes. By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald Staff Writer CLARESHOLM Silage grower Dave Calderwood of Dave's Custom Farming of Granum and Prime Feeders Ltd. manager Doug Mackin- tosh of Fort Macleod told the Willow Creek Municipal District council Wednesday the roads to the firm's yards "haven't been improved'that much." Mr. Calderwood appeared before council to discuss a bill he received for 500 gallons of oil the MD spread on a gravel road. He then commented on MD roads in general. Truckers carrying his silage to Prime Feeders over gravel roads had spurred complaints. Coun. John Zoeteman had ordered the oiling after Mr. Calderwood agreed to it. Mr. Mackintosh said his firm pays taxes on 400 acres of land. It also provides "a place for a lot of farmers and businessmen to sell their produce which enables them to pay their taxes." Prime Feeders grosses million a year and pays more than 000 in wages. Hitting the condition of the gravel roads, he said, "We are losing some business because of the road into our place." Mr. Calderwood asked the council not to continue with its plan to pave the middle stretch of the old highway from Fort Macleod to Granum. He suggested it might be better to build a three quarter of a mile road west from the feedlot to Highway 2. This would require a bridge over Willow Creek. Coun. Zoeteman agreed this would give cattle haulers better access to the firm's yards. He said truckers are using the McKenzie Bridge and the old highway because it is hare surfaced south of Fort Macleod, except for four miles, "and you don't have to go through the weigh scales." There are six miles of gravel on the gravel road south of Granum to the lot, the stretch that raised the dust complaints. One woman, said Coun. Zoeteman, said the dust just hung in the air like a cloud. He said he is worried that another hundred oil slicks will be ask- ed for next year. And Mr. Calderwood said he is worried that he might have to pay for them. He said the bill "is ab- solutely immaterial but where are we heading in this Reeve George Whitehead said if the government listens to resolutions on feedlot tax- ation, to be presented next week at the annual convention at Edmonton of the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties, the situation could change. "There is some sort of deal coming up. All you are paying now is for your farm land." Reeve Whitehead also noted that if the MD oiled or soft paved the road to the lot "we would have to put a ban on it and how would you get feed in and cattle QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic 303 5th Street South Metcalf Building PHONE 328-7684___ I South In short I Fieldman fears warble spread CLARESHOLM (Staff) Agricultural fieldman Richard Berringer told the Willow Creek Municipal District council Wednesday he thinks the provincial government is going to back off on warble control. If this happens, he said, a lot of work in warble control areas may go down the drain. Reeve George Whitehead instructed councillors Ken Weatherhead of Claresholm and John Housenga of Fort Macleod to probe the matter further at Edmonton next week. "Find out from the department of agriculture just where the situation sits said the reeve. If the government softens its stand on warble control the MD councillors will present a resolution urging a strong control program. It will be presented at the annual convention of the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties at Ed- monton next week.
