Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wvdnttday, October 9, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 The Herald' District More District on page 35 Provincial garbage dump rules cause trouble for Foremost Cardston-RCMP talks deemed OK by letter CARDSTON (HNS) Cardston Town Council received a letter from Cana- dian Solicitor General Warren Allmand authorizing negotiations between the town and the RCMP, which is ex- pected to take over police ser- vices Jan. 1. Tbe letter was read at Mon- day's council meeting. According to Mayor Lloyd Gregson, the city is seeking police protection from the RCMP because of the difficul- ty of hiring trained men to police rural cities. All of the town's three policemen have applied to join the RCMP, he said. Replac- ing them would involve DEPICTS ATTACK Archeological digging on the Aegean Island of Thera re- vealed a miniature frieze showing a punitive expedition against a hostile Lydian city years ago. accepting policemen from elsewhere and many applicants have proven to be looking for jobs under the threat of dismissal from their present employment. The contract calls for the city to pay per man an- nually for each of the four men the city intends to hire, Mayor Gregson said. That gives the city a better ratio than the one policeman to 800 residents the RCMP recommends, he said. The ad- ditional police protection is necessary because about 80 per cent of the police business is generated by Indians who live outside Cardston, he added. An exotic cattle sale is be- ing planned for Dec. 20 in the agricultural arena. The problem of heating the building was discussed. It was moved that this be investigated as well as a charge for the rental of the building. Don Sudo reported that i, i i Crowsnest Pass Bureau VERNON DECOUX, Resident Rep., 582-2149 three more days will finish the work of applying fresh gravel to the airport. He was concerned with air- craft landing on the field dur- ing the preparation of the runway. He emphasized planes landing before the runway was ready could do irreparable damage to the oil that is used to hard surface the runway before it is rolled and conditioned for traffic. He has been assured the co- operation of the Cardston Fly- ing Club. However, some mystery planes had landed and knocked out the pegs he had placed to stake the runway. As high loads are damaging the signal lights in the town Mr. Sudo was asked to investigate the prices of cor- ner lights as a possible solution. The light at the Lee Creek school will be raised. Council man Don Caldwell brought up the matter of buildings being placed too close to property lines. Town secretary, Keith Bevans, emphasized that a plot plan should be presented ;to the town office showing where all buildings, garages, and fireplaces should go. They should go where the permit says. FOREMOST (Staff) Mayor George Piper of the Village of Foremost complained of department of health regulations governing garbage dumps here Monday morning at a meeting of county and village of- ficials. Attending were provincial ministers Dr. Winston Backus, Don Getty and Helen Hunley. "Every time we get set up like we think we should be, the department of health is on our back. "The way things are now, if we went according to the could cost quite a bit of money. For small towns, it gets to be quite a burden. "I can see some of these things have to be done in the cities. Smaller places like we have here I don't really see where it is necessary. Said Solicitor-General Hunley: "We can refer your problem about landfill sites to the department of en- vironment and see if they can give you some assistance. "I know they are very concerned about ground water contamination." Mayor Piper also asked if there were any grants available "for villages where no hospital is located to provide us with an ambulance." Speaking about ambulance service, Miss Hunley said: "We have this matter under review." She said businessmen often provide this service and are sub- sidized by local governments. "That is the only thing I have to suggest to you in the immediate future." If government were to take it over, "What do we do jwith the people in private enterprise who want to make a buck on their she asked. It was the best she could offer "until such time as our over-all policy is she said. "We also need adequately trained said Miss Hunley. "There is a course developing now at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. Doctors are interested in it as being a supplement to their ser- vices." She said local businessmen who operate am- bulances should possibly be subsidized when they go to SAIT to upgrade their skills. i i RDEK pleads case of retiring farmers CRANBROOK (Special) The Regional District of East Kootenay has formally ob- jected to a plan of the B.C. Land Commission to provide for farmers who want to retire but continue to live on their land. Such farmers have long been recognized a special case under zoning regulations. Under the Municipal Act, a farmer can subdivide in order to give an immediate member of his family a building lot. However, he can do this only every five years, the district said. The Land Commission has suggested a system of leasehold. A farmer could dispose of his farm, keeping enough to accommodate a house. The new farmer would also be able to build a house. The farmer's parcel would be registered'as a leasehold. When he left it or died, the parcel would have to be incor- porated again in the original parcel. RDEK directors say the move would lead "to piecemeal solutions and approach to local implemen- tation of planning control." Eugene Lee, regional planner, told the board at its Saturday meeting that the Land Commission had suggested proceeding by leasehold in three instances in this RD. "In each case, the man could not get a lawyer in town to touch his papers, and no financial institution would finance a mortgage because he would have no equity in the land." -Lee also pointed out that farmers are not necessarily prepared to buy back a residential lot and house when the leasehold owner is ready to sell. The term "parcel" in reference to land would have to be redefined under legisla- tion to allow the leasehold procedure, and that, -too, would interfere with zoning laws. Instead of having a five- year time limit, subdivisions would be allowed at the dis- cretion of the Land Com- mission. "It would defeat the whole purpose of our R5 said Lee. No money available for arena PICTURE BUTTE (HNS) Mayor Alex Chronik told 40 people attending a recent Rural Urban Community Society meeting here that town council might favor the idea of building a community sportsplex, but there is no money available for the pro- ject. Mayor Chronik said council faces construction of a sewage lagoon in 1975 and this is a heavy financial commitment. Coun. Henry Nummi of the Lethbridge County 26 said the county council could not com- mit itself to helping financial- ly at this point. When costs are learned, council will dis- cuss the project, he said. A tentative cost figure .of was mentioned at the meeting but due to rising costs, the meeting decided it would likely be much higher later. An engineer was to meet with society president Jerry Jantz' and Mayor Chronik to discuss tentative costs es- timates and some possible op- tions regarding construction.
