Inconsistency from Sentes

Dear Editor:

Coun. Judy Sentes stated in The Herald article of Aug 17 regarding a citizen who cut down two trees without proper authorization that: “I think perhaps this could be a learning opportunity for the rest of the community that there is protection in place for our trees.”

Does this mean that our trees in Skaha Park are protected? Does the mayor and council know this?

Well they do now.

There are a lot more than two trees involved with the Skaha Lake Park fiasco. Come on mayor and council, do the right thing.
