The current Dover City Council has begun the process of upgrading our community water/sewer system, and it will be an ongoing project for the foreseeable future. It will be important to utilize our consultants while managing our budget wisely, taking into consideration the short term and long term future. It’s also fundamental to understand how DURA can assist us as we move forward.
The increasing wildfire activity in our area has been a wake up call that the Dover community needs a thorough, well communicated emergency preparedness plan. Partnering with BCEMS to devise a plan for evacuation strategies would be a focus of mine and I would like to talk with our community partners in how best to achieve those strategies.
I would ensure every opportunity was given for public input through various means, and that our council communicated clearly any binding requirements and the process involved in the decision making process. Transparency and being a good steward of tax payer dollars is important, and transparency and communication is key.
