Letter: A lot of silliness at meeting

What I do not understand is why the same people still represent the recreation commission, writes Byron Goch.

Last night I attended a Greenwood Council meeting as a delegate to introduce the viability of a free piano on the street in Greenwood for all to play.

There still seems to be a lot of silliness at the meeting. I understand that there is another lawsuit against the council for a possible conflict of interest. What I do not understand is why the same people still represent the recreation commission.

To me that is a more blatant conflict. I asked permission of council to pose a question to the floor and was granted such.

As I said in this paper, with respect to the Barry Noll versus Greenwood (and councillors), I do not care who wins or loses as long as the city is reimbursed by the loser. I posed the same question to the group suing the city for what they believe is a conflict of interest.

“Is the party that is suing council prepared to post a performance bond to repay council if they lose?“

I heard “yes” but do not know who that yes came from. Well, step up to the plate and prove it. Make sure your family knows you are hedging $50,000 dollars (approximate) of your assets to be right or wrong.

Also, the same people should resign from any committees until this is done.

While I am at it, the mayor is addressed formally, as “Your Worship” not “Your Honour.”

– Byron Goch, Greenwood
