City taxpayers could be the losers

A Greenwood resident worries about being being on the hook for the legal bills because of Noll claim.

Re: Noll files suit; article published Thursday, March 5

That’s all well and fine, Mr. Noll may get his apology, but the taxpayers are the ones that lose.

How much money has the council and members spent on this already? If it’s $10,000, and I would bet it’s more, that is a lot of money for a small city.

I have said this before: we have a bylaw that says if the court decides who is wrong then that party has to repay the city. If this goes away, the people of Greenwood are the losers, not our honourably elected city council. Time you guys stepped to the plate.

Byron Goch, Greenwood
