Letter: Don’t prolong the agony

Don’t prolong the agony

It is good to hear that Trio Marine will be vacating Skaha marina and park.

I cannot understand why it is necessary to prolong the agony until the end of the boating season in 2018. Surely there are many qualified people in Penticton who could operate the marina and generate the same revenue for the City of Penticton.

On a related note, with municipal elections coming up in the fall of 2018, we should be looking at the make up of a completely new council for Penticton. Again there are many qualified people in Penticton who will hopefully step forward.
