With a proliferation of issues dealing with extraordinary expenditures, brought about by a great increase in assessed valuation from Enbridges pipeline and pumping station construction and a subsequently robust reserve fund, it is appropriate for more minds to be put to the task of decision-making.
In the same vein, the constituents would be better served if commission meeting were at a time more convenient for constituents to attend.
