Food vendors a good opportunity for downtown core

I would like to say that Sylvan Lake needs to wake up and get out of the dog house to free up enterprise within the town.

Dear Editor,

I would like to say that Sylvan Lake needs to wake up and get out of the dog house to free up enterprise within the town.

I am in favour of food vendors in the downtown core. They bring endless opportunities like employment for our young to gain work experience. Not to forget, multi-cultural food vendors will draw many attractions to the beach and downtown core, as we all know our downtown is lacking.

What I can’t understand is why our council refuses to see what a great opportunity there is here to further expand our hospitality and show the world that we do have the greatest beach in the world.

Furthermore, I have lived here for many years and I am not impressed with the monopoly of the businesses on Lakeshore Drive. They have been given the power to decide what type of business is allowed – this is wrong! We live in Canada, the land of the free, not a dictatorship country!

Town council, it’s time to rip up old policies and enter 2015 where everyone can enjoy Sylvan Lake.

Sandy Clark,

Sylvan Lake
