Letter: Kudos to Kamloops bylaws officers for their stewardship


I am an avid user of the Rivers Trail and I cycle daily from Brocklehurst to Tranquille Farms.

I was appalled when I came across a queen-sized bed mattress someone had dumped just beyond Cinnamon Ridge.

When I returned home, I told my husband how upsetting it was to see such an eyesore on a well-loved and beautiful city landmark. We do not have a truck, otherwise we would have picked it up ourselves. My husband suggested we call the city and see what could possibly be done at its end.

We received a call back from bylaws and were told they would send someone out to pick up the mattress. Not only did the officer remove that eyesore, but also another foam mattress that was dumped a kilometre down the road.

Thank you very much to the bylaw officers who responded and took care of the matter.

I am a strong believer that residents, working with our city, can have a positive impact on our environment.
