However* even though treatment should be .necessary* it is  not an unduly expensive procedure.

XIBRARY SERVICE  f-ditor, The Coast News,  Sir: ��� / >-  On Wednesday, January 14,  I madb representations to our  ���local Village .Commissioners in  <eonneetio.n with a grant of two-  hundred and fifty dollars being  made to> the, newly incorporated .Gibsons Public Library  Association, for the current  year, and was given a satisfactory reception. The commis-  sknievs expressed themselves  as in favor of the project, but  before voft��ng funds for tlie  s>aanfo, it was hoped that  through publicity, it might be  po^ible to obtain some idea of  public opinion om the spending  of the money on library services.  Villages receive grants from  the Social Service and Municipal Aid Tax each year, the  amount-paid by the Provinciai  Government to-* the Village of  Gibsons for year ending Dec.  1951, being in the neighborhood  of $9,561-67. It may have been  a littlie. less'in, the year 1952-  To date, only a very small  portion of this money has been  spent on social services by our  village administration, and as  library servic.es ^omes nnder  social service activities, we are  in hoipfes that our effort to  establish a/permanent library  service in "the village of Gib^,  son's will meet with success,  ^nn,d that the taxpaiyers will  offer no objection to the village  -commission ,granting  our  re-  ompiete nummary  For soinei years* ithas been-  customary procedure that, early  in th e nNe% Year, I submit to'  the- Board of Commissioners a  memorandiTin suminarizing the  more important of the various  works   aa|c��:' problems   facing  this    (Lferpora'tion.    This    has  served Jtlief-dual purpose, of  bringing matters;/to the atten-  fiOn of the older menibers of  the Board;; and of acquainting  the new members}��� with matters  that may have been discussed  prior to their election. s  WATER SERVICE  Water services  continue  to  be perhapis the most vital  of  these  stevieraiY problems,   so   I  will touch on that first. During  the past year the Village uni-  dertook the largest single piece  of W'Grk in its history; in terms  of money expenditure, nearly  double the total of all its previous   expenditures  combined,  on account.of Water service.  This work is mow nearly completed' there remaining to. do,  of work directly contemplated  under  the  Bylaw,  only  some  cleaning up  jobs of which I  ma,y list: ^  Sonne changing over of service cionntections; Placing c}��  about three 'standr-pipes to  Tees .already installed;. Plaein g  of Hose adapters to stand-  pipes installed;'Some work at  outlet s and valves at new  tank; Replacing of hard-surface at pipe-crossings of  Sechelt Highway and Marine  Drive;' Kacing- of concrete  valve boxes near Church eor-  ' ner�� v .���'"." '��� :.'\    '     ������'  When ail work under Bylaw  93 if?) completed arid paid it  will be found to have exceeded  the origi_ia| estimate by some  thousiands jQ$^dollars, but probably not ^srinuch as was an-  . ^ieipate^i^^possib expenditure. ^1 |hiik it has already  been established that the new  work has M��t only enabled  service to be\ given to a1 great  ihaaiy residents who were pre-*  viiously without w_ii.eT service,  but has also defibdtely improved -service���'���W. hia;hy who ;had  ^beeniv experieneing^   at   times,  very poor;' service. ''��� ���  ' Howeve^, ^bes^dlese: the   inr  stailations; under bylaw-  there  iare a nnnibelr of lines inMedi-'  ately required to^ meet demands  for service; lome<of these have     ^   _ �� , -���. ���  .:_.-.���    .-���.  Wea:dy    be#-installed.    but - ^st:+careful-scrutiny, of?^��.  there stiityreina^-vaboutfive^^^ '  EimMATE .  ^Reference to, finance brings  up the miatter of estimates of  income- v For some years this  Vilage has-been in the position  of the major portion of gross  .incpmei being received from  government graflts, of which  the mofrt mportant is the S.S.  and M-A- grant This, of course,  is fine while it lasts, but could  easily lead to a precarious  situation if the grants were  drafctical-'jy redutee/ .or alio-  g|ther stopped; and in respect  td the S.S. and M-A- portiori,  this could easily happen- To  meet such ���possible situation,  the�� Board would have to have  recourse to grealtly increased  local levies, with possible dis  eases will be a substantial increase; any added mill rate is  likely   to   mean   slower   pary-  ments, tax in arrears and delinquencies,  with final tax sale*  Valuable   improved   properties  would likely avoid tax sale for  some time, but would have to  carry the burden for those who  did not pay- This Village has  had an" enviable record, in that  c'nly one piece of property ever  finally reverted for tax. sale,  and very: few even camejuft I  . believe that;this was a factor  - ii our being'ablfe to get such a  substantial premium:, in pur  sale of bonds lafet. year, and it  is a v' position that should be  carefully guarded;  '������-    '���   "  STORAGE  I must again stress the need  r_ of stcra ge vault facilities at  the Municipail Hall, and included in ~any such b u i 1 d i n g  should be included, 1 suggest,^  washroom services- As far as.  the actua;l day to day Working  is ebneernied the equipment is,.  reasonably adequate1; the pur-  cto:e iasit :year of an adding,  machinev \vas^ a real beon^ and  additional supply will be avai-   ^: ^^ ^/ea^. a^o m ^  lable    when    needed.

Financially,  while at time  of  writing  the  final  figures  are  not available, I think the-auditor's   statement   will  show   a  reasonable    operating    profit,  after   intercut   and   depreciation/; this in contrast to a loss  shown during 1951 would indicate that  the system  is  once  more on a souiui basis-  ROADS **  Next in importance to water-  service seems to be roads. Much  work is going to be required  in this department* not only in  building ^ new roads, but in  niaantaining ^ and improving  present traffie ways. Financial  limitations make impossible  any large irnmediate program;  apparently the only possible  method is one of^ year by year  attrition, keeping up existing  roads., some new building, some  improvements, and over all! the;  more;.;bpncne��; /t6|-do. These  should be proceeded with as  sooni as workmeir ate free. "  ;To fill the; nee cl for actual  water, very definite steps must  be ta'ken well before the heavy  summer demand falls on thi-e  system. Last year supply just  barely met demand, with ree-  /ervpir level falling continually.  Admittedly, last year was an  exceptioffiia^y ��� dry year, but  from now on the system will  be called tq supply *a greatly  increased number om services.  The fact that a number of bad  leaks that have been wasting  water for a- long" time have  been eiliminated will help a lot,  but the final .nett result will  still weed greater supply than  , we had last fyear.  As a step toward assuring a  greaiter supply. I ..believe the  action of the Board in arrang-  5ng for well drilling on the  ���^ater lot to b^t very well advised. There was every evi-  ; d"ejnee . even during the driest  period, not only last year but  for yean* before, of a flow of  water at the bea'eh much ��in  excels of our present total requirements.  This flow of water must pass  below the bump-house property, and it only remains to  locate! it, and tan it for service.  It is very possible that drilline?  may develop a supply source  of cGnS'idftraih'lo volume"; and  water tappejd  in   such  condi-  appointing results- Local revenues are derived largely from  two   sources,  land   taxes  and.,  trade   licenses;   income   frftm  the 1 alter is already, I think, ;  higher in proportion, to  local  revenue,' or even gross revenue,  than/ any other municipality in  tbei Province-  Taxes on land could possibly  stand 'Some   upward  revision,  but any ghteat increase would  be likely to show diminishing  returns^ Evjen  to double  the .  rate would only bring in less  than $5,000.00 more- which is  much less than this year's road  expenditure. Also, quite a number of the taxpayers are now  faiced with the extra levy as  frontage  tax, which  in many  ��� able to ^ get by'.' on this setup,  probably another filing eabiiiiet  would be ^useful before long-  Living close  to  the  hall,. I  am able, to get aloihjg without  any  washroom,   though   sometimes, iu:t  very   conveniently.
