Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, September 13, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-19 Council to share minutes with planning commission By D'ARCV RICKARD Herald District Editor CLARESHOLM (Staff) The Oldman River Regional Planning Commission will get a copy of the Willow Creek Municipal District council meetings but not until they are one month old. The planners said in a letter, "would it be possible to receive copies of council minutes so we can be better The letter was read Wednesday at a council meeting. W. P. Mclntyre, executive director of the commission, told council "in the past this information has been obtained by reading the newspaper." But he said the commission thinks it will get more infor- mation from reading the minutes. "There is only one thing I would said secretary treasurer Rudy Hartfelder, "If the minutes are only my interpretation, they should not be forwarded until they have been adopted by council." "It would be a month said Coun. John Zoeteman of Fort Macleod, council's representative on the planning commission. "I don't think we should be surrendering our minutes to said Reeve George Whitehead. But he agreed to let the planners have the portions that concern them "after they are passed by this council." In other business, council decided to refer a letter from Robert Hoffman of Claresholm to the Claresholm town council because the "terrible condition" of a road he complains about is the town's responsibility the road being under the town's jurisdiction. Mr. Hoffman said the road is deteriorating from the railroad crossing to the cemetery. Mr. Hartfelder was authorized to attend the fall municipal secretaries' meeting Oct. 3, at Morrin, north of Drumheller. George Loree of Parkland requested council for road repairs to the Parkland Road East. Coun. Jim Lowe of Nanton said Mr. Loree is dis- turbed about holes in the oil top. William Gatenby, assistant general foreman, said his road patching crew, tied up until recently on the Blue Trail from Fort Macleod to Hillspring, will attend to the Parkland road east as soon as possible. "There are some bad said Mr. Gatenby. "There is no doubt about that. If you are watching, you can dodge them except at night." He said the bottom end of the Blue Trail was almost completely patched when "mother nature didn't smile on us." It will be finished when sunshine returns to the south. Coun. Harvey Cherniak of Stavely will study a road allowance problem concern- ing G. W. Pestell and Ralph Taber MD council s requests help for ailing bridge TABER (HNS) Repairs to the McLean Bridge over the Oldman River near the Taber Provincial Park are being re- quested of the Alberta highways and transport department by the Taber MD council. The bridge, recently replanked, has become dangerous because of broken and missing planks. The coun- cil requests repair of the planks and asphalt covering as was done on the Nolan bridge north of Coaldale. In addition, seven other registered bridges over BRD and SMRID canals and some drainage ditches constructed by the PFRA are in need of inspection and repair. At its recent meeting, the MD council supported a recommendation by RCMP Cpl. Don Marshall that a crosswalk be painted on Highway 3 at Barnwell in a measure to protect pedestrian traffice including numerous school children. Council had previously re- quested the crosswalk, but support of the request was not then forthcoming from the district highways office. Cpl. Marshall will now press the department for approval of the recommendation. Council officially approved a district road access to the new beet piling ground north of Vauxhall. the sugar com- pany having complied with the requirements of the depart- ment of highways. Unofficial approval was given some weeks ago when council and company representatives met with department people on site. A recommendation is being made to the Taber town coun- cil to sell the jointly owned Cadillac ambulance now replaced with a new unit.

Council received notifica- tion from the department of the environment that the Pine Coulee drainage system has been dropped for the time be- ing and is on the "maybe" projects list for the future. Council identified it as "Brown's project." There was no comment from the councillors. The Herald- District School plans still pending -WARNER (Staff) County of Warner school superinten- dent Garfield Potvin said Thursday he has not heard if plans for a new high school ad- dition here have been accepted. The county school com- mittee has recommended that the 1914 school be demolished with additions built in 1951 and 1957 to be left standing. "It could come said Mr. Potvin. "It might stay up. There are many, many pros and cons on it." It is hoped the school buildings branch will approve tentative plans to renovate the present gym into classrooms and build a new, larger gym- nasium. The east gym would, be renovated into a music room, lunch, art and science room.

A local youth admitted to the three charges in provinical judge's court after having been identified from finger prints found on the inner door of an open safe for which he had rigged up an electric drill to jimmy. After the first break in, the offender drove the stolen truck through the service sta- tion fenced compound he left the truck at the second burglary scene when surpris- ed by a night constable mak- ing a round of inspection. According to the August report of the police depart- ment to the town council, the three offences were among the 10 convictions in local magistrate's court. Others included cases of impaired driving, theft, refusal to be breatnalized, causing a public disturbance, and common assault. The 27 driving infractions were mainly speeding and stunting, with one charge of hit and run and one of careless driving. The highest motor vehicle accident loss on record was reported for August when 16 major accidents of more than" saw damage made up losses of An additional three minor accidents were recorded. Various alleged infractions of the Liquor Control Act brought 15 persons into court, whale another 29 were housed in police cells for overnight recuperation before release. The 52 court convictions in August was a sharp decline from 97 in July. At month end. complaints of theft of cigarettes from a ser- vice station on Highway 3. and of cash from a pop machine at the local sugar factory, were unsolved. The west gym would be renovated ino a business education and language laboratory, library, prin- cipal's office, secretary's workroom and office, staffroom, washrooms and in- firmary. Borrowing fire gear questioned TABER (HNS) The Taber Municipal District Council is seeking an interpretation of the powers vested in police under the Forest Act of Alberta, which states that fire fighting equip- ment can be conscripted to ex- tinguish grass, brush or forest fires on crown property. The question was raised following of an RCMP order during July for the Vauxhall- MD fire truck to a fire within the MD__but outside fire protection area 2, for which the equipment was purchased. Since the fire was not on crown land as specified in the act. the council requires clarification of the principle involved, otherwise the setting up of boundaries for ,fire protection areas is meaningless. Inquiries have been made to the Alberta municipal affairs department and to the Alberta Association of MD's and Coun- ties, the former having referred the problem to the Attorney General's department. Another problem before the MD council's last meeting was the rise in the level of Lost Lake which endangers the main road east from Enchant.' The near dry lake is used by the Bow River Irrigation District as a receiver for run off excess irrigation water which has to be removed by pumping. However, the pumps are unable to keep up with the input. The adjacent road is being undercut.
