Shawnigan Lake, BC - The SRA is in full support of CVRD Director Ian Morrison's call for fiscal accountability and the need for the municipal auditor to investigate the CVRD's finances and operations.
As tax increases have reached astronomical levels, the SRA questions the CVRD's position and justification for increases in staff salaries in a time where fiscal restraint is not only necessary but expected. Further, it is unclear to us the dollar for value we receive when it comes to area services which have not increased to any significant degree in Shawnigan Lake.
We hope that the board will take swift and decisive action on behalf of taxpayers and that this will be the first step in addressing spending accountability at all levels.
The SRA encourages all residents within the CVRD to make your voice heard and demand accountability by contacting your CVRD director.
