LETTERS: Keeping us in the dark

It seems city council likes to do everything in secret and keeping the public in the dark.

I am not against a waterslide park. I am against where it is going.

I do not recall any public discussion on this issue. It was just announced by city council that there was going to be a waterslide park put in by Trio Marine Group and that was the first anyone had heard about it.

I just cannot wrap my head around the ploy of getting paid by Trio Marine Group for said park to then have this council buy other park land and/or do more work in and around the Lakeshore area. That area should remain as is.

It is unfortunate that some folks against the water park attended the city hall meeting and became somewhat passionate in their feelings leading me to believe that this angered the council then giving them the reason to just go ahead with their original plans.

This council strikes me as “Yo-Ho Let’s Go” with no discussion with citizens what so ever. Where is the transparency that was talked about when the present mayor was campaigning for his position? I am happy to say that I did not vote for him and only voted for two of the council members that have since disappointed me in my choice.

It is too bad that there had not been better communication from council on this subject by drawings and illustrations re: this matter and not enough information.

It seems city council likes to do everything in secret and keeping the public in the dark.
