EXHIBITION GROUNDS LETHBRIDflE TOPICS: CONFORMATION Md FERTILITY REGISTRATION Ptr Ptraon Wntmi Stock drown' AuiditlN Coaldale lady administrator aims to serve By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor COALDALE This story should answer all the things about a town administrator that you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask. Mrs. Rae Yamasaki is administrator for Coaldale, a rapidly expanding town with a population of ap- proximately located six miles east of Lethbridge. With an office staff of two assistants, Mrs. Yamasaki still works an average of 10 hours a day. In addition, there arc various evening meetings she must attend Mrs. Yamasaki is also secretary of the Police Commission. "Some weeks I am only home one night." she says A night school student at Lethbridge Community College for the past five years, Mrs. Yamasaki stuck to the grind and has completed a bunch of tough courses. These include Law of Local Government 1 and 2, Secretarial Practises of Municipal Government, and Municipal Government Meetings. These are all under the Certified Institute of Secretaries program. "I am now taking municipal accounting every Friday night lor five hours at LCC" she says, with the deter- mined look of someone who went right to work alter high school and appreciates the opportunities that go along with continuing education. With all these courses to her credit, Mrs. Yamasaki still linds some problems can really stump her "But then. I not only have six councillors and a mayor to consult on those, but the expertise and technical knowledge of the various town supervisors to draw on Discussing her job, Mrs. Yamasaki says it is always challenging and interesting. She attends two regular council meetings each month "Ol course, you have to know how to do the minutes. but having a successful meeting is largely dependent on the work done BEFORE you start. Council requires all available mlormation on any subject under their con- sideration: it is my responsibility to see they have this mlormation." It takes about half a day after each meeting to write up the minutes and answer correspondence as directed by the council. INFORMATION CENTRE Coaldale town office, like many small town olliccs, is regarded by visitors and residents alike as a centre ot mlormation Mrs Yamasaki and her slatl take many phone calls a day requesting iniormation that would not. in a larger centre be considered their province. For instance one day's sampling included requests ior houses to rent, for sale, lots for sale, recreation ac- tivities, location of churches and times ol service, where a lost dog might be located, what youth groups were available and what the library hours arc. As the town ollice also answers the tire alarm and ambulance calls. Coaldale is a busy office' Mrs. Yamasaki co-ordinates the work of various town foremen, prepares budgets lor each department lor council's consideration, implements council's policies iind carries out their decisions. She is available tor discussion ol any problems the citizens ol Coaldale may have, works on projects in- itiated by the provincial government's department of municipal altairs. also works with the department oi social service and the planning commission Does this conjure up a vision ol a super-el I icient businesswoman clad in the glossy mantle ol the lady- executive1' Wrong. Mrs. Yamasaki is a charming, friend- ly. intelligent woman, well-groomed and very feminine. FIRM There are times when she has to be firm. "It is up to rue to pass along council's and it is mostly up to me to see that it is carried out. But it is my job to servo people, not to fight with them Does a woman town administrator have an edge on a man town administrator? "No." says Mrs Yamasaki. "Sometimes it's a disad- vantage For a while I was also land development ollicer II 1 had to inspect something that involved climbing over buildings. it wasn't as convenient as it I were a man. But as far as personaliffes go I haven't found anv dis- crimination She started as an assistant a year ago last January, was appointed treasurer in April. 1972. and became town administrator July 1 this year. "I guess we are all civil servants, but I don't like that it gives the wrong connotation." With attractive and efficient Mrs Yamasaki. it rather does.
