Langley City spending priorities questioned

Editor: Why does Langley City council continue to spend so much money for the benefit of so few people? The first example I can provide is the bike park at 48 Avenue and 200 Street.

Over half a million dollars was spent on a park that is rarely used. You can drive by any summer day and only see four or five kids using it.

Now the City is spending $2 million on McBurney Lane. This also will be for the benefit of very few people.

Most Langley City taxpayers will either never see the improvements or never utilize them. Why doesn’t council spend money which will benefit all taxpayers — like repairing disgusting roads which are full of potholes?
