The new trustees seem to be under the impression that it is a complicated process to request the CVRD to initiate an independent study on the pros and cons of becoming a service area of the CVRD. It simply takes sending the letter of request which was approved by motion Nov. 2017.
The excuse using the letter from the ministry to delay/postpone sending the request is bs. Read any quotes from the ministry and their claim is that they don’t interfere in a governing body. They will offer direction and suggestions as they did in the Jan. 2018 letter the board kept secret until Trustee Kaljur insisted it be made public.
A number of landowners have complained to the Ministry about this gong show board and were told the Ministry doesn’t interfere and the only option was to retain counsel. So we know the Ministry would not object to the UBID board proceeding promptly because they do not interfere. (unless you are a developer crying the blues because a democratic UBID board wouldn’t extend an expired agreement and then the Ministry appointed a facilitator to appease the cryer and flunkies – seems to have made an exception to the rule on that one)
NOTE: the date of 2017 is a typo – it was received by UBID Jan. 2018.
It’s just a letter – that’s what starts the ball rolling. The motion sat for the last 17 months. If we want the process to start – we must insist this board send the letter asap! The current board has misled the landowners and are costing us money as each month passes.
Not only did the admin erase the 17 minutes, he then never bothered to obtain audio to complete the minutes.
The motion that was passed at the Nov. 16, 2017 meeting with the Chair stating “there’s no harm in getting information” and then buried the motion.
