Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 19, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 21 Hays seeks water system aid TABER (HNS) The future of the water and sewer systems in the hamlet of Hays is at stake the stake is the high operating costs in relation to the low revenue generated by the systems. Representatives of the provincial department of environment met this week with the Taber Municipal District council to explore the possibility of transferring the installations to the municipality for .operation and maintenance. But the council advised the visitors that a condition of transfer would be that the department pay any operating cost deficit so no charge would be made on the remainder of the MD to subsidize Hays residents for their domestic services. The Hays water and sewer systems, designed for a community of people which was never realized, were installed by the PFRA when the federal govern- ment had jurisdiction v over the Hays irrigation project. When the provincial government's department of the environment took over the BowHiver Irrigation District from the PFRA it was not aware of the inclusion of the two systems, council was told. It was further revealed that PFRA had been sub- sidizing the Hays people for a number of years. After hearing council's opinions, the delegation comprising Ken Nelson, Mike Yakemchuck, A. R. Strome and Glen Campbell will make further recommen- dations to department officials on the situation. With no election change in the personnel of council, Mike Ohashi having been returned to office, the statutory meeting was set for 10 a.m. next Monday, at which a reeve will be elected by the council. Committees will be struck for the coming year.

Cominco net earnings much higher than "73 Only a few people can offer any explanation why Reeve Jensen went down to defeat at the polls in a contest with Ken Woolford in Division 2. It's just one of those things that happens in politics. The people spoke and rather decisively the count was votes for Mr. Jensen and 125 for Mr. Woolford. "The only word I heard from one or two people was that Mr. Jensen has been in too long.and now it was time for someone said a person close to the scene. "Sometimes experience and ability don't enter into it. "But Harold did a good job for his district." Mr. Jensen and Mr. Woolford were not available for comment and are believed to be out of town. It was thought that the former reeve for 10 years is on a holiday to Expo 74 in Spokane and will continue on to Victoria, B.C. Council is faced with the task of electing a new reeve Why did Mr. Jensen fail to regain his seat? It will be the topic of conversation for many days to come here. "I am wondering the same thing said a coun- cillor who did not wish to be named. "As far as representing his district, he did as well or perhaps better than most councillors. Maybe he was just in too long." Said another: "Harold Jensen never missed a meeting and as far as I know was never late for a meeting the whole 28 years he served the municipality. No election issues were raised that could have contributed to his defeat, observers say. Vulcan protester elected VULCAN A Brant man who refused to pay his 1973 .municipal taxes to the County of Vulcan has been elected a county councillor. Steve Dixoif withheld 127 in taxes for a short time in 1973 as a protest against the alleged privilege extended to Hutterite colonies to operate their own public schools. He said in October, that "the colonies are in es- sence operating segregated public schools." Shortly after, he paid his taxes in full. He was elected a coun- cillor in Division 4. VANCOUVER (CP) Cominco Ltd. Friday reported net earnings for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 1974, were million, with net earnings of million for the same period in 1973. E. Burnet, chairman and chief executive officer of Cominco, said in a statement sales increased to million, compared with million for the same period last year. Mr. Burnet said that although operations at Trail, Kimberley and Salmo were shut down by a strike in the third quarter, earnings in that period exceeded those of the corresponding period of 1973 because of improved .earnings from the United States and other Canadian and overseas operations. Significant progress has been made towards resolving the 3Vfe month work stoppage at Trail, Kimberley and Salmo, Mr. Burnet said, and when negotiations with the of- fice workers' union are concluded; plant start-up procedures will limit produc- tion for the first several weeks. The Kimberley local of the Association of Commercial and Technical Employees is seeking its second contract while the Trail local is seeking its first. The 4.200 steelworkers employed by Cominco in B.C. settled their contract dispute but will not return to work un- til ACTE settles.
