In an effort correct what he calls “incorrect and misleading” information being anonymously delivered to Colwood homes, Mayor Dave Saunders announced a new drop-in time for public to talk to him directly.

On first and third Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m., the mayor said his office door will be open for anyone with questions. Other councillors may also participate in the drop-in time.

The most recent flyer to go out was entitled “Sewer Bill – Past Due.” The City has no connection to the notice.

“I consider it hate mail, and so does my lawyer,” said Saunders, who plans to initiate a defamation lawsuit against a Colwood resident allegedly linked to the anonymous mail outs.
