You can be sure the naysayers will be out and do their negative thing. Why? Because they are just like that.
I feel our District council and mayor did a lot of homework and the result is a good plan that will serve us well for years to come. Our council instead of emptying the bank account, they acquired a timeless connection with the National Green Municipalities Fund for further funding required, especially with an outright grant of $1 million and a loan of up to $7.4 million at a very nominal interest rate as a way to pay for the wastewater treatment plant, but also allows the District of Sechelt room for other important projects.
The District of Sechelt can leave about half of the reserves and surplus funds that were previously committed and this allows them to omit short-term loans at high interest rates with a much less debt service to the community.
For this reason I commend the council and we need a positive vote on the referendum, so do not forget, let's make it a priority.
