Brad, the sound system is new, not borrowed, and if there are issues with the sound system, DOK needs to be informed so that improvements may be made. the newsletter was explained, the motion came from Councillor Scott, a good motion with the intent of keeping the public informed. Early in 2012 our CEO suggested periodic town hall meeting which was not well received, and although there is a monthly newsletter from the DOK not everyone has access to it. Small cost to the community and hopefully informative. But if it is not well received it can be changed. thanks for your comments regarding this.

Just watched the council meeting and was quite impressed with the sound system they borrowed from Tamitik Arena (what a joke) and was just wondering who is going to pay for the mailing of said newsletter they are planning on sending to residents. For me it doesn't matter as I have been picking up my mail for the last 9 months.
