What I have read in our local newspapers concerning the new Parksville water treatment plant is an outrageous, over-expensive overkill of taxpayers money.
The water treatment plant will be the state of the art, the best in North America, the envy of all other cities in North America, the most elaborate and probably most expensive water treatment in North America — for a small city like Parksville.
Also the volume size of that new proposed water plant is a overkill. We do not need that large of a water treatment plant.
The plans for that new water treatment plant should be immediately revised to normal standards for a small city, to eliminate the high costs to taxpayers who will see their taxes skyrocket. Many people here live on pensions or have only a low income and can not afford those elaborate dreams of our city council members.
