Gas co-operative expensive Councillor tells group FOREMOST (Staff) "We want information on grants and County of Forty-Mile councillors told three cabinet ministers here Monday morning. "You're going to be sorry you said answered Solicitor General Helen Hunley, adding that reams of information on government programs cross her desk and she is sure reams of it can be diverted to the County ojffice here. She was meeting about 30 county and village officials along with fellow ministers Dr. Winston Backus and Don Getty. Said Coun. Romeike: "We (SYorTtm) GUARANTEED SAVINGS CERTIFICATES of cofflpounood to Member Canatfa Deposit Insurance FARMERS 4 MERCHANTS TRUST hear the department of youth, culture and recreation is spending up to 70 per cent of their budget in schools or ac- tivities connected with schools. We humbly request that this information be applied to us how to use those grants." Said Federal and Inter governmental Affairs Minister Don Getty: "I find that hard to And Miss Hunley added: "Seventy per cent really sur- prises me. In other areas we do get the complaint that schools aren't adequate- ly in the community.

Male and female workers will be hired. Don Johnston of the firm said there are 195 hourly employees working in the Safeway Shelter Systems plant now. Mr. Johnston says an un- employment rate of only three per cent is making it extreme- ly difficult for his firm to hire the production line workers it needs. a matching dollar grant which is proving kind of exciting in a lot of areas." She said the 70 per cent figure startled her. "I would like to send you more information." She added: "On grants, I am shocked and dismayed on the paper that crosses my desk that they don't send some of it to you. We will see to it that various departments are alerted." Coun. Romeike said the county is interested in learn- ing more-about the depart- ment of agriculture's luncheon program. "It is only common courtesy if these programs exist that our school jurisdictions be informed of them." Miss Hunley said the luncheon programs ar.e "ex- perimental." "These were started out in the northern she said. "We do have them in'some city schools, purely on an ex- perimental basis. It is certain- ly the kind of thing that could be developed. A lot of it comes from local initiative. We will see .that you do get the infor- mation you are asking for. "As far as the lack of com- munication about grants, I am surprised if this is happening and we will see if it can be corrected." Tendering on own jobs illegal? FOREMOST (Staff) Solicitor general Helen Hunley apparent- ly made an "illegal" suggestion here Monday morning when she met county and village of- ficials. Coun. Frank Romeike told Miss Hunley, Public Works Minister Dr. Winston Backus and Federal and Inter governmental Affairs Minister Don Getty that the county has its own road construction equip- ment. He said he hoped an arrangement could be worked out whereby the county could build the roads and leave the pav- ing to the government. Asked Miss Hunley: "Wouldn't it be a good idea for you to tender on your own "I don't think that is said Coun. Romeike. Explained Coun.

Speaking at a meeting between Public Works Minister Dr. Winston Backus, Federal and Inter- governmental Affairs Minister Don Getty and Solicitor General Helen Hunley; county and village of- ficials, Coun. Romeike said: "Because the bulk of the coun- jty population is included in our co-op, we want to work together to see if we can get to the bottom of it." Mr. Backus told about 30 people present in the Royal Canadian Legion Hall here that gas co-operatives are be- ing held up because of a shor- tage of materials and too few contractors. "This program really did go over .he said. "It was hoped in a way that some parts of the province would be slower so that the whole program could be co- ordinated. The response has been tremendous "But there is only so much pipe and only so much machinery available to dig the pipe in. People are going to be a little bit disappointed when they don't get the gas the minute they sign up in a co- op." He said, "it is just impossi- ble to do everything that needs to be done in this province all at once." Mr. Backus added that some co-operatives might wait as long as five years before the gas is finally put through "It may not be this year, not next year, maybe not the year after that. It may take five years to satisfy all the re- quests on the books (for gas) right now Union manager named NATAL (HNS) Clarence Senile has been named manager of the Fernie and District Credit Union at Sparwood.
