Letter: The sad tale of Rivers Trail

Editor:

The city changed the level of maintenance on the Rivers Trail this year.

In past years, maintenance was done by parks staff, with mowing and weed-wacking done at reasonable intervals to an acceptable standard.

This year, maintenance was assigned to roads crews who managed the trail very differently, mowing only twice with the same standard as applied to the shoulders of county roads.

The results were a significant decline in quality of mowing and no weed-wacking.

City council is not interested in this issue and staff seems to be proud to have met its goal, so future improvement are not likely.

The civic election will be held on Oct. 20.

Perhaps there are candidates out there who will take up the cause for North Shore and other trail users.

Maybe we need an electoral ward system?
