LETTER: Surrey’s city council is clearly ignoring its frustrated electorate

The next municipal election cannot come soon enough, says one angry reader

It is clear Surrey's municipal government is not listening to the will of the electorate

The Editor,

The Surrey mayor and council appear to be ignoring the fact that our schools, hospitals and general infrastructure within the community cannot support any further development, yet they continue to issue residential building/development permits.

Our roadways are nearing unusable condition, while the traffic situation is worsening every month.

The signage bylaw enforcement cannot be effectively enforced – when illegal event signage is taken down, new signage of this nature appears almost overnight. This is further pushing Surrey into the ‘undesirable’ neighbourhood category.

It is clear the municipal government is not listening to the will of the electorate, or considering the reality of the development on overcrowding of our schools, hospitals and traffic mess. The next municipal election cannot come soon enough.

R. Conley, Surrey
