RVs need to dump somewhere in Courtenay

Dear editor,

Thumbs down to the City of Courtenay for not providing a sani-dump station for RVers in our community.

Dear editor,

Thumbs down to the City of Courtenay for not providing a sani-dump station for the convenience of all RVers in our community.

You just have to drive through any neighbourhood in the Valley to see how many RVs there are in the driveways…they all have to dump their waste somewhere.

Not to mention the multitude of RVers just travelling through our community. Perhaps they would stop in the Valley, have lunch and spend a little time and money if we were to offer the convenience of a sani-station.

I would like to suggest that the old Farquharson Farm site be a good location as there is access off the highway going north or south with room to turn around if need be.

As the farmers’ market seems to have moved uptown and the infrastructure (sewer and water) may already be in place, this seems like a good idea.

But wait: We have to go to city council for a vote, and if successful … wait: we now have to hire a consultant to approve the expenditure, then send two councillors to Ottawa (at taxpayers’ expense) for a study session which will then be reported back to city council.

Solution: Hire Fraser Carter, former city works foreman, to do the job. Three days hence the job will be done, expenditures absorbed as sewer improvements.

In the meantime, one bucket of waste at a time to the toilet in the garage … happy RVing!

Tom Isbister,

Courtenay
