Public works staff have done great job

Take a look around town and see all of the public services, buildings, roads, parks and cemeteries that are so well taken care of.

Dear Editor:

Hopefully all of the anger and disappointment has been vented about the Canyon View Cemetery clean-up.

I understand your grief, but could not understand one request to fire everyone at the Summerland public works department who had anything to do with it.

This clean-up was necessary because numerous and very large items placed on gravesites made maintenance extremely difficult and perhaps families in their grief did not take note of or follow the cemetery guidelines.

Take a look around town and see all of the public services, buildings, roads, parks and cemeteries that are so well taken care of by the many municipal employees.

Although I am not a municipal employee, as manager of the Summerland Museum, which is housed in a municipal building, I deal with all of these departments regularly. I am very grateful for the quick service and care they provide.

We are very fortunate in Summerland to have such dedicated employees who do a great job keeping Summerland in good shape and looking good.

Our little town is beautiful and very well cared for, thanks to all of the municipal employees.

Keep up the good work.
