Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedneidoy, September 2, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 RDEK Seeks Electronic Processing NATAL, B.C. (HNS) The Regional District of East Kootenay will recommend es- tablishment of an electronic data processing plan within the Association of Kootenay and Boundary Municipalities. Skyrocketing administrative costs in the past five years ori- ginally prompted the AK and BM to look into the plan. A study was initiated and was siuuv was imuaica ami was carried out by AVG. Manage- refusing the appoint ___..i -c n..-......._ chief "mouse-catcher' ment Sciences of Vancouver. For the study, the provincial government paid and the Regional Districts of Kootenay Boundary, Central Kootenay shared the bal- ance on a per-capita basis. The study found that stan- dardization of methods would be desirable, that present pro- cedures were becoming more and more inadequate, and that a common system would be practical. The committee looking into the matter for the AK and BM was chaired by Reeve Harper, clerk-administrator of Nelson, and included Albert Mitchell of Trail, Eric Wilmott of Nelson, Bland Hoover of Cranbrook, Don Torgeson of Kimberley, and Frank Be'rtoia of Cran- brook. It recommended accept- ance of the study and imple- mentation of EDP on a grad- ual basis throughout the three regional districts. The centre of the system would be in Cranbrook, where space is available and other factors contribute to the prac- ticibility of administering the system in that city. The RDEK resolution at the meeting will state the district's willingness to participate, on the same basis as hospital costs are shared, if the other districts are also willing to par- ticipate. Costs would be shared on a basis proportionate to school tax assessments.

Elk Valley Citizens Form Ratepayers' Group SPARWOOD (HNS) Resi- dents of the Elk Valley met recently to form a resident as- sociation which can speak with a collective voice on such mat- ters as the zoning bylaw of the Kegional District of the East Kootenay.
