Don’t be shy about fines

Surrey – The Editor, While watching the evening news last week, it was announced that Vancouver had imposed a no-watering restriction and various other municipalities are stepping up their enforcement with increased fines.

Delta’s fine is $400, while Surrey’s is $250. Surrey had issued 800 warnings but only four fines. This reeks of poor governing and gives naysayers more negative things to say, adding to Surrey’s already bad reputation.

Smarten up mayor and council and get the directives and bylaws enforced – or step aside and let people who truly care about the municipality govern.
