Location suggested for sani-dump

I can speak from experience on the number of tourists asking about a place to go and I have to tell them Penticton.

Dear Editor:

I have noticed in the paper lately the subject of RV sani-station has come up.

As the only mobile RV serviceman in Summerland, I can speak from experience on the number of tourists asking about a place to go and I have to tell them Penticton.

As I understand, there is a problem with the quantity being dumped at the old site.

But when the site was at Peach Orchard this was not a problem.

That was a poor locale too close to a park and beach.

May I suggest it be placed across the road  in front of the Peach Orchard Campground. That way it would only be locals and people who are visiting here using the site. Therefore it would not overload the system.

Also, a nominal fee could be charged in the peak season and collected by the campground hosts.

This can also be policed by the hosts.

This would make it a win-win situation, and some of the costs incurred can be recovered.

If we are promoting tourism we also have to service it.
