Trail council takes rec questions at Waneta Plaza

The Trail mayor and council will be on hand Saturday at Waneta Plaza to answer questions and address concerns.

All the recent inter-community conflict between local municipal politicians surrounding community recreation agreements can potentially leave citizens of the area feeling somewhat left out of the loop while elected officials squabble.

To try to alleviate some of these feelings, the Trail mayor and council will be on hand Saturday at Waneta Plaza to answer questions and address concerns for any passers-by who may be curious.

“We get quite a few people here and there asking questions,” said Mayor Dieter Bogs. “We just thought we’d get together a booth at the mall and try to answer some of them.”

Bogs and company will be on hand Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., taking questions from citizens from around the area on recreation or whatever municipal subject they may want information about.

“I hope people from all around the Greater Trail come and ask questions, not just the City of Trail,” Bogs said. “I just thought this would be better than another media release or editorial. I’ll make myself available and we’ll have some handouts.”

Bogs hopes he’ll be able to field questions on a range of topics, everything from the proposed library and museum, the new pedestrian/pipeline bridge across the Columbia River, or ongoing revitalization work in the downtown core.

“I just wanted to interact with people rather than the media for a change,” he said from Cranbrook, where he is attending the B.C. Mayors’ Caucus this week. “I thought it was a bit more friendly option to personalize it a bit.”
