Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, September 5, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD- 17 Joint ski area funding remains among issues CRANBROOK (Special) Mayor Ty Colgur says he favors joint recreational facilities for Cranbrook and Kimberley but he won't pledge financial backing of the Kimberley ski area. Ski area director Alan Bond suggested in a recent submission to the City of Cranbrook that this city should provide money through a referendum to equal the original contribution the City of Kimberley made to the ski area. Funds are needed so that planned expansion can be realized. City councillors here won't commit themselves until they get a clear indication of the support and interest of Kimberley people to the proposal. Aid. Stephan Atchison agrees with Mayor Colgur that the idea of joint recreational facilities between the two cities should be ex- plored, he said Said Aid. Atchison: "The city should be prepared to offer help to any recreational facility that is of benefit to the area at large." Aid. Ron Powell says the Regional District of East Kootenay should be invited to par- ticipate. The RDEK has already supported recreational projects such as the Wycliffe Exhibition grounds. Aid. Alex Demchuk, while recognizing the value of shared recreational facilities, said, "We would look like idiots to run a referen- dum in Cranbrook for the Kimberley ski hill It's ridiculous to ask us to spend money on a facility outside town." The ski area director's brief cites the increase in the number of Cranbrook skiers using the Kimberley facilities. He has projected population figures for Cranbrook which indicate the city will have people by 1980. His brief says: "Cranbrook skiers initial interest and assistance in the Kimberley ski area was demonstrated by way of yearly membership payments to the Kimberley Pro- ject Society as a means of obtaining membership and improving the Kimberley Ski Club. "The increase in the Cranbrook skiing public over the years has been considerable as indicated by Kimberley Ski Club memberships. As a result of this progressive skier growth, we have in Cranbrook a very interested and expertise ski population. Housing office to open; will serve Kootenays CRANBROOK (Special) Former city engineer Ray Daniels will open an office here about Oct. 1 as provincial director of housing for the East Kootenay. Working under provincial Housing Minister Lome Nicolson, his job will be to "provide housing at reasonable prices." While Mr. Daniels has not yet been informed of what the official policy of the new department is, he knows what the problem is all about: With the high cost of living, it takes an entire pay cheque to live on and very little is left to buy a house His staff of nine is now be- ing hired by the British Columbia Civil Service Com- mission. The staff will com- High River district to have ambulance HIGH RIVER (Staff) The High River Ambulance Socie- ty has been formed to serve communities of Blackie, Cayley, Longview, High River and Okotoks as well as a por- tion of the Foothills Municipal District which lies within the High River Hospital district. A new ambulance has been ordered The areas involved agreed to levy two mills on the equalized assessment to pay for the service. The Town of High River tax rate for the ambulance works out to about 1.4 mills. The ambulance will be hous- ed in a new building at the High River General Hospital. It will be staffed by hospital personnel with a part-time attendant on call. The service is expected to begin Jan. 1 when the present contract with the Snodgrass Funeral Home expires. James Howie has been nam- ed president of the society. Other officers are Wilson Sutherland, vice-president, and Leonard Van Tighem, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Howie represents the Town of High River, and Mr Sutherland the hospital board. Other representatives are Karl Christoffersen, Foothills MD: Pat Milligan, Town of Okotoks; Les Suitor, Village of Blackie; E. A. Giroux, Village of Longview; and R. A. Tutte, Village of Cayley. Tenders will be called soon for construction of a two-bay garage. Crowsnest Pass Bureau VERNON OECOUX, RMidMrt 562-2149 prise a civil engineer, superintendent of construc- tion, loans officer, negotiator and appraiser. There will be a four-man clerical staff. In October he will meet with Housing Minister Nicolson and district directors from Kelowna, Prince George, Vancouver and Victoria. He says various housing assistance funds from federal and provincial sources will be funneled through his agency to provide accommodation for those who are unable to qualify under present income requirements for standard mortgages Present stipulations require that no more than 26 per cent of gross family income be ab- sorbed in house payments. At current prices, gross incomes below about per annum cannot qualify for the purchase of new housing. A large number of prospective buyers are unable to acquire the 20 to 30 per cent down pay- ment necessary. Providing housing at reasonable prices is one of the problems the new B.C. ministry will have to solve, says Mr. Daniels. He says it may be done through buying development tracts and entering into development projects. However, he says, whatever the methods used, it will be up to the department to work out the solution. He and the four other directors will ad- minister government policy. Mr. Daniels is a civil engineer. For the past year he has been city engineer at Cranbrook. Before that he was with the department of public works in Manitoba A LITTLE TIME WITH OUR PEOPLE IS A LOT MORE VALUABLE THAN YOU THINK! UFA Bulk Petroleum Agen- cies sell only top quality products.
