Spirit important in Mulhurst Bay: writer

We look forward to seeing all property owners respecting each other and observing the law.

Dear editor,

The Concerned Citizens of Mulhurst Bay express our thanks to County of Wetaskiwin councillors Larry McKeever and Keith Johnson, for their support on August 18 when over 20 of our number were present as Richard Conrad outlined our concerns to county council, particularly that the county’s existing bylaws with respect to country residential zoned property be enforced.

We thank the reeve and the remainder of council, who disagreed with us that this enforcement in Mulhurst Bay should be a priority, but, nevertheless, assured us that specific complaints would be addressed.

We have no ill will toward any party, but only a passion for our community where respect for established bylaws complements respect for each other. As property owners and business owners, we are invested in this community’s health. Homebuyers were assured that neighbours in the subdivisions would inhabit similar dwellings, maintaining the subdivision’s character.

Impromptu trailer parks, as opposed to the allowed two trailer/RVs with dwelling, are not in compliance either with the letter of the law or the spirit of community.

Given the county’s accumulated surplus of $98,198,367 as of Dec.31, 2014, we foresee no financial obstacle to the county fulfilling their mandate of humane but firm bylaw enforcement.

We look forward to seeing all property owners respecting each other and observing the law.

David Crombie
