Had this proved  successful, both encumbents would have lost  their seats on a vote of non-confidence. Such  was not the case for they were returned with  substantial majorities. As it is the council  which makes the decisions, not the chairman,  it is obvious there was no question of rion-v  confidence.  Rejection of the chairman is therefore  all the harder to understand and without doubt,  his loss will be felt for some time to come.

On the other hand, if the'1 advice of the  consultant is acted upon, the function of the.

Administration ��� The changes here are mostly internal  and have been' made to make  the office operate efficiently  and economically while at the  same  time  providing  informa-  :tion  Quickly   to   the   treasurer  -,and council. The major changes  are:  ( (a) The Minutes: These are  now bound in loose leaf form  which are duplicated and each  member of council and staff is  provided with draft copies.  Items of policy and of lasting  importance in the minutes are  ^indexed and cross referenced.  (b) Bylaws: These have been  filed by number sequence, indexed alphabetically and a  working set made available for  easy reference.  (c) Accounts: These have  been set up to conform to the  Dominion of Statistics and department of municipal affairs  requirements and the change  over will be completed with the  closing of the books for this  year. With improved billing and  . receipting, a rapid end of the  , month balance of the books is  ,.... ���_. ���g. jjj -   providing, up  to  date expenditure figures to  council and consequently maintaining a firm control of the  budget.  (d) Taxation Billing: This is  now on the standard municipal  form which provides tax roll,  tax bill and receipt copy in one  printing. This cuts our copying  time and eliminates the possibilities of copying errors, and  does away with the old handwritten tax roll.  (e) Water Billing: This is  now on NCR carbon forms, the  duplicate copy acts as the receipt. Together 'with the flat  rate billing, this has .made the  utlity accounting system, much  more simple' and .economical to-  m operate.  ,.,.   4. Staff: Office opening hours  have been increased from: three  ���to- five days a week and with  a cashier-typist working in the  *'��� afternoon, this fits' in very well  with the existing demand; Most  of the village business is done  by mainland telephone, (During  the months of September, October and November',, the average  number of  people-visiting the  'office per day was two)., Peak  work load conditions such as occur during tax collection have  .required   a   few   extra   hours  work by tho cashier,typlst but  . the distribution of routine work  away from  these  periods  has  permitted   a   very  e.ven  work  load, through the year, ,  .5 Equipment ��� The office is  ., equipped only for the present  ' staff and work load, If there is  additional work, or more staff  is employed In dealing with re-  cciptN then additional equipment  ���from page 1  will be needed A cash register.-andsdesk would be the mam  essential items (These items  were deleted from the original  plan for equipping the new hall  in .order to ^economize).  6. Collections .���-.. Taxes.: have  been paid,promptly arid at"October 30 only $3,717.00 remained  outstanding. It would seem that  . the increase in mill rate to  about the provincial average  for villages did not influence  the payment of taxes.  7. Licences ��� These are also  paid, up for tbe period ending  .October. 31 withthe exception of  . one,, the total ^number of licences issued being 110.  ti Recommendations for 1966���  The village is now at a stage  where policy-decisions on its  development should be made  by council. Immediate needs for  1966 should form part of a long-  term plan which would include  rezoning and the introduction of  a capital budget. V  8. Zoning���The existing zoning  bylaw with its mixed uses,; and  other defects is no longer adequate and a committee should  be set up to consider action on  re-writing this bylaw. A short  appendix outlining the need for  changes is attached.  9^ Building bylaw ��� I would  recommend that the building  bylaw which at .present  is most inadequate be replaced  as soon as possible by the National Building Code which is  at present ulhBer review b  building committee.  10. Capital Budget���This budget is the basis of long-term  financial planning. It would  guide the orderly development  of the village over a period of  five years or more. The capital budget would lay down projected annual expenditures and  the work to be undertaken and-,  the source of funds, .���������Jte would  ��� combine Vthe capital expendi-  ���ff.-tures���>-.from --current-, revenue;,  ? with tthose. f financed from bor-  ^ rowing and reserves.  11. Borrowing (Debenture  Debt). ���-   Some   consideration  mshould.be.given to a money by-  - law.!to"finance public works of  aicapital nature. The village in.  its present pay-as-you-go policy  is, I .think, attempting to catch  ���up with the past as well "as provide for the future in its current annual programs. Some  money from current, revenue  would be well employed in obtaining professional advice on  planning and engineering, as  has been done with the water  utility, i with a view to obtaining  good overall development fir  nanced by borrowing. This is of  particular importance, if the  proposed harbor development is  to  be  given   the -serious   con-   ,'Sideratioo.that   H fell   it   de-  .serves,  12. Water Utility ��� The very  comprehensive report of Mr,  DayUm covers the development  of the utility, i would emphasize the need for this utility ��o  be self'supporting and thereby  obtain a certificate of self-  liquidation. This not only eases  tho way for financing develop.  ment of the utility but enhances the financial position of  the village itself which is an essential when borrowing on a debenture issue.  I would repeat my recommendation in my report of the  utility of December last year  .concerning ��sprinkling permits....  This is an.unnecessary permit,  it gives no,more control than  do other forms of necessary restriction, and if anything due  to the charge involved it en- .  courages the use of water. It  could be replaced by restriction of use by area or house  number.  - 13. Conclusion ��� I think real  progress has been achieved in  the village during the past year.  Since  ,a   great   deal   of} this  ���Si-' achievement is concerned with ,.<  planning and internal changes,  the results will not be.apparent  until the coming_ year or even  later. The combination of pressures for... expansion of .boundaries, enlargement of the water  �� .utility,; and development of the  harbor are bound to take up  more of^oujjdl-xomniittee time /  and of my time, thaff~4n^the  past year, but this must be e;  pecked and .adjustments made  accordingly,   .'.���.', .��� ,.  \ ..  I  wish to thank council  for  its ,co-operation and confidence  in my,work, I have'very much  enjoyed  working  with  you  all  for,this my first year with the  v village arid look forward to the  challenging year ahead. ;  ���'���"���������������.

The land area being small, is not conductive to  a mixture of industrial, com- .  mercial and residential uses  and only a hodepodge, unattrac- *  Uve growth will result if some  form of guidance or control is  not instituted. Council should  therefore consider upon, what  the future growth of the village  is likely to depend and plan and  rezone accordingly.  If, for. example, it isithought  that the future 'bi'-the.','.'community lies in its attractiveness  as a residential area' far adjacent heavy industry, together  with retirement i % dwellers and  tourist facilities to meet the  small; boat, trade, then planning  should concentrate on these,  lines and zoning and building ���  bylaws should be. designed to  guide and ensure the plans are  [allowed.

Rezoning is a job for a professional planner, and as it  seems unlikely that the planning division of the department  of municipal affairs will be  able to help us in the planning  and zoning, I would recommend  to council "that it consider obtaining the advice of such a  man. In our discussions to date  on the harbor development I  think it is obvious that we must  soon come up with some clear  idea of the future use of and  access to the harbor shoreline. This matter has therefore  some urgency.

There are now two trumpet  players in the Black family.  Lillian, Neil and 10 year old  'Butch' (watch it Grandpa; my  name is John David and I will  be ll next' week) came over  from Nanaimo to celebrate  Christmas with us. Imagine our  surprise when John picked up  his father's trumpet and joined his Grandma on the piano  with an excellent rendition of  'Jingle Bells'. Six weeks ago  he couldn't have cared less a-  bout a trumpet. Today, after  seven lessons (not from Neil)  and showing a real aptitude  for the instrument, he shows  signs of some day surpassing  his dad who, as many people  are aware, is really good when  'blowing the horn'.
