Who’s in charge of the purse strings?

I am very thankful that the contractor has finally paved the chunk of road on Larkspur.

I am very thankful that the contractor has finally paved the chunk of road on Larkspur.

After numerous attempts over six months to get an answer from the “people supposedly in charge” I was informed that it was not convenient for the contractor to pave the roadway at this time.

Well, I ask, what  about me as a lowly taxpayer? I certainly didn’t feel it was too convenient to have to drive over this washboard every day.

Are the contractors running Sooke?

Perhaps in the future we should just be electing them because trying to get the municipality to show leadership is impossible.

Who exactly controls the purse strings?
