Rec decision made without consultation

"We were not told this was going on, and in fact our mayor and council did not know either."

If the people of Beaver Valley think they are being told everything that goes on in this area that impacts their lives, they are sadly mistaken.

A few of us were at the Montrose council meeting on Monday, and found that the decision to opt out of Trail Recreation was made by three people.

We were not told this was going on, and in fact our mayor and council did not know either.

This was decided by our three regional reps. We never had a chance to discuss or have a say about it. There was no meeting or referendum.

When did our area become a dictatorship?

Why is the only meeting going to be about a month after they pulled the rug out from under everyone who enjoys all the recreation facilities that Trail has to offer.

After reading Mayor Bogs’ letter in the paper, BV Parks has had a year and a half to have meetings to let us know how much we would be reimbursed and what activities we would be reimbursed for.

I would like to also know how often during the year this would be. I would also like to know what happens when the $200,000 they have set aside runs out.
