City dragging its feet on decision

"I am simply appalled at the past city council for dragging its feet to make a decision in the matter of the skateboard park..."

In regards to the latest story in the Trail Times paper (New skate park survey postpones potential grant money, Trail Times, Tuesday May 19).

I am simply appalled at the past city council for dragging its feet to make a decision in the matter of the skateboard park, which now leaves the new council to clean it up.

Saying this by giving an opportunity, I feel it would lessen vandalism from our youth in Trail, plus staying out of trouble.

In closing, we advertise to shop and play in our community.

So don’t chase them to another community. Community money in our own community such as dining, locally, gassing up, shopping are just some examples.
