Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22-1 HE LfcTHBRIDGE 'Welfare municipality' fears grow MORINVILLE (CP) The Alberta government's plan to safeguard the Edmonton environment by banishing new heavy industry from near the city could make the Municipal District of Sturgeon a "welfare a district official warned Tuesday. Three cabinet ministers taking part in the northwest Alberta cabinet tour were told that the municipality is in urgent need of industrial tax revenue if it is to remain viable. Alphonse Nobert, the district's secretary treasurer, said that while assessments rose to million in 1974 from million in 1970 the district had to raise its mill rate to 99 mills from 72 in the same period. Shell Canada Ltd., proposed a major new refinery which could have doubled the assessment but the Alberta environment department rejected the refinery on grounds that it posed a pollution threat to Edmonton. "Such an act is a discrimination, a detriment to the better- ment and a barrier to the advancement of this said Mr. Nobert. And if it is provincial policy to ban heavy industry within 50 miles of Edmonton, he demanded to know how the provincial government intends to compensate municipal governments that are denied the new tax sources. Attorney General Merv Leitch, replying for the government, said it is "not quite accurate" to say there is a policy banning heavy industry within 50 miles of Edmonton. There is no set area from which heavy industry is banned, he said. Each case was dealt with on its own merits with the aim of avoiding an excessive concentration of industry that could mar the quality of life of people in the area. Municipal tax assessment problems are complicated but the government is working on them and hopes to produce some answers, he said. Mr. Leitch's party, including Lands and Forests Minister Allan Warrack, Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Don Getty, and St. Albert MLA Ernie Jamison again heard complaints of overcrowded schools, a common gripe on the cabinet tour Mon- day. Some 250 elementary school students are forced to use the 50-year-old Notre Dame school, formerly a convent, and now totally inadequate, with no gymnasium, narrow rooms and cor- ridors and poor fire escapes, said a school representative.

While new models will be carrying price tags of and up, the additional cost of driving them for a year can run from to more than That estimate is based on a study by the Hertz car-rental firm's leasing division, which computed the cost of operating an average car dur- ing the first half of 1974. It means a consumer's operating costs will exceed the purchase price of a new model in less than two years.

The study said the per-mile cost of operation declines the more miles a car is driven a year and the smaller the car. If the mid-size car, such as a Ford Torino or Oldsmobile Cutlass, is driven miles a year, operating costs drop to 18.3 cents a mile. The per-mile cost of operating a full-size model, such as a Dodge Monaco or Chevrolet Impala, is 29 cents for miles or At miles the cost goes to 53.150 a year or 21 cents a mile. Operating costs for a sub- compact, such as an American Motors' Gremlin or Ford Pinto, are 19 cents a mile for miles and 14 cents at miles. The study also said operating costs increase if a motorist keeps his car for fewer than three years. Per- mile costs increase an average half-cent if the car is kept two years and increase one cent if the model is traded. in after only one year. Lottery change announced MONTREAL nc stanr.g!
