Area G – Grant in Aid Funds

Why should Saltair taxpayers taxation funds – Area G – Grant in Aid (collected on our property taxes) pay for “Take 5 – advertising fee for Saltair Businesses”?

Take 5 publishes events for FREE. Who exactly made these arrangements with the Take 5? Should they not be paying for the advertising fee for Saltair Businesses?

It is great to recognize the community members who sat at the side of the road to do the Bike BC stats count. These stats were of benefit for the CVRD Parks & Trails to apply for the Rural Dividend Fund Grant and the award of $500,000 towards the Saltair section of the Cowichan Valley Trail/TCT.

In 2016 the Saltair taxpayers taxation funds – Area G Grant in Aid donated $500 to the quilting group towards the Canada 150 quilt that they are doing an amazing job on. Nice to recognize the work they are putting into such a large and time consuming project.

These are both commendable groups of volunteers in Saltair and a party to recognize their efforts is a great idea.

“Take 5 – advertising fee for Saltair Businesses” is this how the Area G – Grant in Aid should be spent? Why does the SDRA think so?
