Kudos to councils for reaching deal

Local resident appreciates cooperation of councils regarding rec deal.

It was a huge relief to read in the Trail Times that the Village of Warfield and City of Trail have reached an agreement on library and recreation contributions (Warfield, Trail hammer out rec deal, Trail Times May 22).

I thank the Village council for listening to their constituents. It takes courage to publicly  reverse one’s decision.

Although we may disagree with an action of our locally elected officials from time to time, we should always remember the mostly thankless hours these folks dedicate to our communities,
