The Alternative Approval Process (AAP) is a very easy way for the Town of View Royal to borrow $8 million for a new (was “firehall”) protective services building.
We already owe $2.5 million for the land. The town only requires ten per cent disapproval through this AAP to carry out this very expensive building.
View Royal has a population of approximately 9,000 of which 7,700 are voters and 3,850 are taxpayers. This is far too rich for a town of this size. A scaled down version and less equipment at the firehall could/might be the answer. Needs versus wants.
All elected politicians have limits on their powers and responsibilities. Let there, at least, be a referendum.
