I walk my dog along the lake shore most mornings and, of course, chat with other dog people.
When the docks were being constructed, the most frequent comment I heard was, “They look awfully high. Hope they are safe.”
Now, we aren’t engineers but it seemed obvious to those of us walking by that there might a problem with the height, but we just hoped that the people making the decisions had done their due diligence when designing the docks.
I think that Summerland taxpayers are owed an explanation for this humongous and costly disaster.
I would like to see an inquiry into how this decision was made and why we are now in the position of wasting money to replace docks that are not safe for the families who use Rotary Beach.
