Here’s what to do with District of Tofino surplus

Tofino – I note with interest a surplus in the Districts fund’ s .. May I suggest “removal of boulders “open Gibson street again. After all, the last few hundred feet were finished with fancy crushed gravel ‘for the torch run’ Olympics 2006 and when one considers LEGALLY , Council can’t Close or sell any Gazzetted street (as they belong to the people of Canada ) Yes!!! 1964 was when we started on Sewer treatment.. How about making a’ motion ‘clear the Right-a–way’? After all, it’s you guys that signed up for that smelly stuff to come twenty miles from ‘far & distant land.”If we are getting 350 cars a day past 4th & Gibson, how many will come next time Campbell is extended past Schooner & motel? I find it unbelievable that we can’t find a place for preschool care, other than on a hi-way & bordered by “Pot Lane “…. when four nice lots all serviced by Motherwell engineering are on the west end of the school playground .I would think these two would compliment one another, the other thing that “rattle’s my brain” is WHY should residents & visitors from the Tonquin Park area be forced to drive through downtown every time they leave home? Also “that Smelly stuff “is bound in that direction – so is the Hospital on the direct route? And the Fire dept. told you twenty years ago the advantages in having water come from south in the event of a downtown fire .. You could delay next year’s $400,000.oo surplus from the “iron stain Dam repair “as the whole thing was only cost $50,000. And after all, it does justified charging everything to water that keeps flowing.

Even last year the driest in 60 years & we didn’t read about it in the paper .. All those TV camera’s don’t do much to cut the price.

I think Tofino has become Six Month’s “seek em & soak em.” But when I see how totally unprepared we are for our source of revenue -IE dirty signs ,benches ,noisy at night, Motels & eating place’s with garbage & non -compliance Zoning – Building inspection -Non existant. Thats enough for to-day.
