LETTERS: Answers needed

More information, as you say, will probably reduce the animosity this whole topic has caused.

In the spirit of openness, transparency and democracy, I am hoping Mayor Andrew Jakubeit will provide answers to the following questions regarding the lease of public parkland at Skaha Lake.

– Trio Marine are comprised of a trio of local businessmen, as stated on their website and chamber of commerce website. Please advise who the principals of this group are.

– In regard to the “portion of revenues” the City of Penticton will get from Trio Marine in exchange for the parkland lease. Are the revenues from gross or net income? In other words, will the city get a share of each ticket sold, for example $5 from each $25 ticket sold, or will they be after expense net revenues.

– Please clarify how Parking at Skaha Lake Park will be effected. Will the number of free parking spots remain the same? Will there be paid parking in some areas of both the public park and that part leased to Trio Marine.

I thank you in advance for your time and response. More information, as you say, will probably reduce the animosity this whole topic has caused.
