Comox Valley Regional District administration top-heavy

Dear editor,

Is this a plot?

Seventy-four per cent of area A, B, C residents turned down a CVRD-managed roadside recycling service.

Recycling centres continue to disappear for rural folks, most of whom compost.

Now when they take their minimal monthly or quarterly garbage to the landfill, they will face a 50-per-cent increase in tipping fees.

Shame on you directors — it's all about funding the administration with a 29-per-cent increase in support services.

This beef is not about the workers at the landfill who do great job, and take the heat — but the top-heavy administration at the CVRD.

With shrinking revenues, most organizations reduce overhead. Not here.

In November, this will start to be fixed.

Phil Harrison,
