Thanks for bringing reason and clarity to fire truck issue

Thank you, thank you David Spencer for your letter to the editor in the Aug. 22 edition of Sylvan Lake News.

Dear Editor,

Thank you, thank you David Spencer for your letter to the editor in the Aug. 22 edition of Sylvan Lake News.

Mr. Spencer, you brought reason and clarity to the issue of the town’s purchase of an aerial fire truck and there are many issues in this community that require the same sort of careful thought and consideration.

Leaping in with an uninformed opinion, as some do, simply muddies the waters.

And speaking of muddy waters, Mr. Al Hallgren, a man of your advanced years must know that altering the shoreline of a waterbody without permission is illegal? My belief is that you do know and don’t care and that says more to me than anything you might espouse in your letter.

Municipalities will always have malcontents and councils will have to deal with them but they don’t have to give any credence to their opinions.

Lynda Fiedler,

Sylvan Lake
