Water meters and returning garage sale to the old ways

After reading Barry Huddleston’s letter to the editor in last week’s paper, I have had my eyes opened about this matter.

Dear Editor,

After reading Barry Huddleston’s letter to the editor in last week’s paper, I have had my eyes opened about this matter.

I went to the web sites he suggested and I do believe that there is cause for concern.

I know I will be refusing the meter until I get more information.

I suggest you do, too, people of Ponoka!

I would hope that our new town council will have a town hall meeting and further inform us before we allow these people in our homes.

Right now it sounds pretty scary.

What do you think??

Also, after reading last week’s paper, I was not surprised that the “Chili cook off” did not fly, as you might say.

If it were held in conjunction with the Downtown Garage Sale, it would compliment this event very well, in my opinion.

And speaking of the Downtown Garage Sale, it should be returned to the way it was before on Chipman Ave.

In my opinion and many others’, it was spoiled by the way it is now. It shouldn’t be scattered in the old Liquidation parking lot.

If others still want to have a garage sale at their homes, then great. You can go there when you are done downtown or before.

When it was on Chipman Ave., you could chat with friends and neighbors.

You could shop in the businesses as well as go for some refreshment if you wanted to.

I don’t think the downtown businesses benefitted by the way it is now at all.

At least I did not see a lot of people going down the street

If you feel as I do, let the Chamber know how you feel.
