This year residents paid the same

ear is attributed to inflation.
Jpn Swan, a student-resident mem--
of the committee, said the ad-
nal rate for faculty and staff was
the idea of the students on the resident-
staff committee. They felt the increase
was justified because the purpose of

Housing contribute to the GSRR, which
is used to pay for major repairs and
improvements on the buildings.
"Housing isn't segmented into this
building or that building," Snustad
said. "Our responsibility is to manage
all of it."
Snustad explained that since the
family housing units are newer, they

ted now, its value goes down over the -
years and would amount to less when
the time comes to use it, he said.
Family Housing Manager Richard
Tarrier said the only way the GSRR
fund can have enough strength for the
jobs it must finance is for all units to
contribute to a single fund. "There
wouldn't be enough if they split the fund
up," he said.
Payments are made by everyone

penses, Tarrier explained, "It's like an
Another point of conflict of the com-
mittee was the allocation of money for
maintenance. Swan said, "They're
giving one million for it (maintenance
services), and we don't need that much
allocated." He said one of the student's
complaints was that the Housing Office
didnot know exactly how much time
maintenance workers, such as elec-
tricians, plumbers, and repairmen,
spend doing their work.
"Their accounting methods are slop-
py," Swan said. "Anything extra on the
budget goes into GSRR, and we have no
control over that," he said.
"The students feel there's a waste
somewhere," Snustad said. He said he
feels the best way to solve the accoun-
ting problem is to hire a consultant t'
from outside the University to make
maintenance operations more efficient.
The rate committee recommended a
consultant be hired.
He added that faculty and staff mem-
bers occupy 30 per cent of the air-
conditioned apartments, and twenty
per cent of the two-bedroom apartmen-
ts which are considered among the
"This is supposed to be low income,

The students on the rate committee
recommended for the second year in a
row that the General Student Residence
Reserve (GSRR) fund be separated in-
to two accounts, one for single student
facilities (residence halls) and one for
family housing. This point was a source
of conflict between students and staff

Swan agreed, saying that the money,
paid by family housing residents is
being used to renovate old dormitories.
"Family Housing has been getting the
shaft over the years," Swan said.
Creating two accounts would help to
_ equal things out, he added.
Swan explained that when GSRR
collects money now from family
housing residents, it is saved for the
future. Swan said he feels it would be
more economical to collect the money
later, when the family housing units
need repairs. When the money is collec-
