Open letter to Whitehorse’s mayor and council:
Please explain how you justify an expenditure of nearly a quarter million of our tax dollars on yet another frivolous “what if” endeavor “to study Whitehorse’s urban containment boundary.” Do you see rapid and uncontrolled urban spread that needs immediate containment?
Focus on the “here and now” problems and not on expensive conjectures of possible futures.
We clearly have immediate needs for roads to be repaired and upgraded, left turn signals installed at key congestion points, and correctly programmed traffic signals to synchronize with speed limits and traffic flow. Those are but a few of the ongoing problems you refuse to address with any meaningful action. We don’t need more studies; we need things fixed.
If you have money left over after taking care of the basic functions you were elected to do, then you can spend it on “what if… sustainable… maybe” studies.
Do the job we elected you for; run our city efficiently, effectively and economically. Stop spending our tax dollars on unnecessary trivial pursuits when our infrastructure needs immediate attention.
Get your priorities in order and fix things first.
