Thanks town for the quick results

I have often written to you about a complain. This time it is for a thank you to the town hall employees.

Dear Editor,

I have often written to you about a complain. This time it is for a thank you to the town hall employees.

With 1913-2013 days coming, I, as a member of the Sylvan Lake Seniors, wondered what we could do to make Sylvan Lake a better place.

I wondered if we had a bicycle lock-up near the centre on 50th, that some seniors could bike to the centre, have a coffee or soup or play cards or Wi or scrabble and be secure in their minds that their bikes are safely locked.

Upon looking at our centre, being as it is so close to the sidewalk, there was not much room to place a bike rack.

I went to see town hall about rules and regulations and requirements as I didn’t want to plan against town bylaws, etc. I was referred to Mary. She told me that they were having a meeting the next day and she would try to get my questions answered. When I didn’t hear from her, I phoned again and she said that Rick was working on it.

Then a week later, Mary phoned and said that the town has found a bike rack that has yet to be placed and will place it in the parking lot by the mermaid. Three weeks later, there it was!

It is not bike season but I know once the weather changes, the bike rack will be used, not only by the seniors but by citizens going to town hall, or to Community Partners, Art Gallery and the church on the corner.

Thank you for the quick results.

Vernie Munroe,

Sylvan Lake
