Letters: Get financial house in order first

Sooke Bike Club should be paying for their own study on bike skills park

Proposed uses for John Phillips Memorial Park. Why did Mayor Milne give the Sooke Bike Club $3,600 of taxpayers money (plus another $3,000 to the horseshoe group?) In fact, one Sooke councillor actually offered the club $50,000.

If the bike club has over 300 supporters/members as they claim, why doesn’t each member contribute $15 (plus GST) to cover their own initial planning costs?

The district currently has many more urgent financial obligations which should take priority over bike parks and covered horeseshoe pitches. Take, for instance, our seriously underfunded sewer system.

District of Sooke, get your financial house in order befdore wasting anymore taxpayer money.
