Letter to the editor – dock at Curry Park

Dear Editor,

WHAT NO DOCK THIS SUMMER!
I’m an avid boater and fisherman and I’ve been waiting for the municipality to put the dock in at Curry Park. So far nothing has happened. My boat is quite large, so I need either a second person, or a dock to put the boat in. I have to go to Taylor Park in Ottawa to put my boat in, and that’s not the area I want to boat and fish in.

When I called Parks and Rec department, I was told that the dock had been damaged last year and that there was no money in the budget to replace it. I couldn’t believe that in a municipality this size their budget couldn’t handle that! With all the parks, soccer and ball fields for the youth, they haven’t the money for one dock which would be used by both youth and seniors. I don’t begrudge the kids their fields, but come on – one dock!

I don’t like to complain, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who would like the dock replaced or repaired.
