The daylmer provides a necessary passenger sennce between Coaldale and Lethbridge and further points, councillors said. By ROSS GIBB Herald News Service TABER - An appeal to the Department of National Revenue having fallen on deaf ears, Mimicipal District of Taber No. 14 will now pay $5,173 sales tax levied against the purchase of a dragline machine several months ago. Under the Sales and Excise Tax Act, municipal equipmsnt for road construction is designated as exempt from sales tax. However, the said machine has seen other work, hence the liability of the MD for the tax. The MD protest to the revenue departaient was accompanied by a request for intervention by Hon. H. A. Olson, Minister of Agriculture who could do nothing but support the existing legislation. The MD council was also faced with a $1,293.61 bill from the Oldman River Region Planning Commission in support of the commission's operatmg expense, and of which notice was received by the council July 13. The requisition was laid on the table until the November 9 council meeting to which ORRPC executive director Er-win Adderley has been invited to attend. The 0.1 mill on equalizfid assessment suggests that the MD should join the Commission. Council was in receipt of a letter from Municipal Affairs Minister F. C. Colborne, regarding penalties charged on overdue taxes resultant from late receipt of the government's home owner tax refunds. Some dissatisfaction was read from the letter, though the practice is according to the municipal taxation act. Mr. Colborne advised that the department will amend tlie act at the next sittuig of tlie legislature to clarify the problem situation.

A dinner was held. Grand Chief Mrs. Hazel McLean of Gibbons was honored guest. Mrs. McLean spoke of the importance of team work. A filrc on the actual process of an eye b-ansplant was shown by two members of the organization's "Operation Eyesight." prompted the council to refer the matter to a joint meeting of the town and MD councils who operate the ambulance. A comparison of munidpal and private cost for similar services indicated to council that the MD rates "are out of line". Council agreed to submit amended crop yield reports to the department of agriculture (federal), Regma, for assistance under the Prairie Farm Assistance Act where average crops on a township axe below an acceptable return. An application to Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation was approved for the borrowing of $5,450 for the Barnwell sewage treatment plant being constructed under a local improvement bylaw.

Notice from the Department of Highways of the maximum allowable speed was presented at a recent meeting of the Taber MD council, with an ex planation that the road will be under the control of the MD and is therefore subject to tiie 50 mile limit on district roads. The council also expressed some concern that practically no work has been done on the four mile paving contract from Highway 35 east toward Hays. However, contractors' equipment is at Vauxliall awaiting stabilization of the weather to more favorable pavmg conditions. Council gave its approval for the operation of a restaurant at Vauxhall east of and alongside Highway 36. Approval for licence was given earlier, the second approval being required by the department of highways for its approval. The restaurant, owned by Nick Rush, has been in operation for some time. Depai-tment of highways approval is also required by the MD for closure of two roads in the south Hays area, on which the council gave second and third readings of a bylaw. The land is to be transferred to the Crown for irrigation project in that area. In connection with water control projects, council was advised by the water resoiu-ces division, Alberta department of agriculture, tiiat financial assistance under the ARDA program has been 'withdrawn by the federal government. The IMD was advised that the provincial government will revert back to a former 50-50 cost sharing basis for future water conti-ol projects, a condition which existed prior to the three-way agreement now dissolved.
