Lantzville Water Deal - Democracy - Nanaimo Style

Three Councillors Pass Lantzville Water Deal

In spite of Councillor Bestwicks attempts to postpone the decision on the Lantzville water agreement until all councillors were present, the motion to finalize the deal was passed by a 3 - 2 margin.

Councillors Brennan, Kipp and Anderson were not present and Mayor Ruttan had to leave chambers as he is in conflict as he lives in Lantzville. Councillors Bestwick and McKay opposed the motion while Councillors Greves, Johnstone and Pattje voted in favour.

So there you have it with a one vote margin we have entered into what will be at least a 40 year agreement that will see Lantzville able to hook up to Nanaimo water for very favourable rates.
