Boat launch costs are as promised


Accurate information on our new public dock and boat launch is that everything promised has been fulfilled and more. Costs are what they were said to be.

The purchase of property relative to the dock was made prior to the contracting and had also been a matter of public record.

Again, the District of Sooke was able to make said purchase of a municipal long term asset (the land) and as such was able to qualify for grants.  That made our portion .35¢ on the dollar, to be approximately $320,000 for a property worth $915,000.  I see that as incredible administration of public funds.

I welcome anyone with a measuring tape to walk the loading, parking area with me to get a true reading on things living up to standards.
