Union Bay Improvement District – months of boil water ahead again this year?
Another cartoon for Union Bay - the joke of the Comox Valley https://image.issuu.com/191024194524-ad58f09f476d929b6499605978ff631d/jpg/page_8.jpg Previous posts about boil water advisories: https://allthingsunionbay.com/?s=boil+water+advisory Remember all the congratulations and trustees patting themselves on the back about the water treatment plant and no more boil water advisories? At the Oct. 2017 meeting when the agreement with KIP was announced, the... Continue Reading →
Union Bay Estates ‘time’ is different from real time. Another year of empty promises from this developer. Remember 2005 – still singing the same song 15 years later.
Note the date of November 30, 2018, and yet the fencing is still up to prevent people from accessing the coal hills. Upset because we followed the path along the south side of the creek to access the coal hills - you know -the contaminated area KIP dumped back on the province? https://allthingsunionbay.com/2017/09/15/kensington-island-properties-aka-34083-yukon-inc-pulled-another-fast-one-you-are-going-to-pay-update-on-the-coal-hill/ From: "sprtgrpbam"...

A step in the right direction. Trustees now have UBID email addresses, so no reason for a spouse to respond/insult landowners.
The 'contact' page of the UBID website now has the UBID email addresses for contacting the trustees. https://union-bay.ca/contact/ You might not think it's important. Read the following excerpt from an article from Jan. 17, 2018 specifically mentioning the problems with personal email addresses: https://allthingsunionbay.com/2018/06/06/union-bay-improvement-district-trustees-wife-thinks-its-okay-to-respond-to-ubid-business/ The UBID has not complied with the FOIPP Act for the...

Union Bay Improvement District meeting Oct. 17, 2019
Short meeting. Didn't learn anything about the finances. They set the dates for the by election. Looks like we're going to the polls again in November. EDIT: I'd like to make a prediction based on what I witnessed last night with 3 trustees guessing about locations, times, etc. This by election is going to be... Continue Reading →
Secretive/dysfunctional UBID board meeting tonight @ 7 pm – no questions allowed even though landowners are funding 100% of the increases they have planned.
Any guesses on how much of an increase in Admin costs for 2020 landowners are funding? As you can see below, the costs doubled from 2017 to 2019. $91,981 to $184,052. I had heard the previous (qualified professional) Admin's pay was around $65,000/year and had 2 part time staff. An Admin who responded to correspondence... Continue Reading →
Paul’s newdaysinunionbay gave me a good chuckle
The news of the CVRD/governance study and this post on Paul's blog made my day. https://newdaysinunionbay.com/2019/10/17/union-bay-and-a-sack-of-hammers/ 🙂
Comox Valley Regional District agrees to Union Bay governance study.
Noticed this was on Susanna Kaljur's blog. https://unionbay.news.blog it's great to have Susanna's and Paul's https://newdaysinunionbay.com blogs providing more information to Union Bay landowners. Is anyone surprised there has been no comment from UBID? "The Comox Valley Record has contacted the UBID office about the upcoming process but has not heard back." https://www.comoxvalleyrecord.com/news/comox-valley-regional-district-agrees-to-union-bay-governance-study/ Daniel Arbour is Area...

UBID’s Incident Reporting Policy 6-A-01. Did anyone follow this policy and report ‘unsafe’ working conditions in a timely manner? Who investigated?
UBID Incident Reporting Policy 6-A-01 has been on the new website since Nov. 29, 2017. Think anyone has read it?https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CoRTfhz555hfGfYMA9Oz_w6AOYIS0VjU/view

Some important information from the Ministry
Noticed there are 2 new posts on Susanna Kaljur's blog: https://unionbay.news.blog/2019/10/15/whats-in-your-wallet/ and this one containing the letter below: https://unionbay.news.blog/2019/10/14/ministry-letter-to-trustees/ You will note it's the Ministry who advises Paul Healey resigned - not a peep from those great elected trustees and admin. This letter is in response to Sept. 12 and 14 emails - before the... Continue Reading →
Union Bay Improvement District by-election. To vote for another person who will promise transparency until after they are elected and then no questions allowed?
So, here we go again. Someone promising to be transparent, honest, accountable and then suddenly the landowners asking questions becomes a major problem once they are elected. Typical Union Bay. Look at what the candidates who were elected promised. How many of them actually followed through on their promises? Two kept their word, and the... Continue Reading →
