Snowstorm mars ley Ity ItOSS (IllJIt Herald News Service TABIiR The near doubling of hospital t axes in 1971 for ratepayers of Taber General Hospital district w a s the con- sensus of trustees at a recent meeting of the board of direc- tors following consideration of correspondence from Health Minister Henderson. In his letter to all hospital board members iii the prov- ince, Mr. Henderson said "it would appear unwise to antici- pate any general increase the rate of provincial payments for your hospital during the coming fiscal year." Mr. Henderson explained that the probable growth of provin- cial expenditures of six to eight per cent "will be barely ade- quate to cover increased costs due to the expansion of the hos- pital and nursing home pro- grams that will come into op- eration in the year ahead." He said that department of health costs had risen S84.5 million for 1865-66 from to a FOREMOST (Special) t snow storm in the Foremosi area spoiled many of the plans as the United Grain Growers held the delegates report ban quet at Foremost Community Hail recently.

The Taber General Hospital board is also faced with un- known increases in salary ex- penditures due to the expiry at the year-end of all current wage schedules and contracts with negotiations already be- gun between the Alberta Hospi- tals Association and various staff associations in Edmonton. in consideration, also, of price increases of practically all goods purchased, and addi- tional cost due to the inefficien- cy of the present hospital build- ing, the board forecast a pos- sible io mill levy against dis- trict ratepayers.

In 1970, the government re- moved the four mill general levy and the hospital district was obliged to increase locai taxes k> 5.5 mills' which was inadequate to meet costs in view of changes in government policy relative to covering op- erational deficits. The board's statement is that unless sonic drastic change in f i n a n c ing of should o c c u r, it is almost in- evitable that a 10 mill levy will be necessary in 1970. The rate will, of necessity, depend on salary increases as determined by current negotia- tions and a clear definition of the amounts of grants avail- able from provincial coffers to be considered by the board in drawing up its budget for the coming year.

Hospital deficit offset at Taber By ROSS GIBU Herald News Service TABER A 10-month oper- ating deficit of was re- ported by the Taber General Hospital's board of directors for the 1970 period through .Octo- ber. This represents more than 10 per cent of the spent during the period against which is receivable from the provincial government. Expenditures were made up of for nursing services, S75.096 for special services mainly laboratory and radiol- ogy, for nursing educa- tion, and for all admin- istration and general services, less revenue of recover- ed for meals and other services provided for free. Revenues of included of local receipts and received from the pro- vincial government hi granU and special payments. However, the financial state- ment prepared on a government form does not reflect the ap- proximately received by supplementary requisition from contributing municipal govern- ments. Simple arithmetic dictates the indicated deficit is more than offset by the local requisiions which should cover any furher "deficit" incurred in hospital op- eration for the balance of the year.
