Letter: Impressive conduct

Thanks to online video availability on the Vernon city website of council meetings

Thanks to online video availability on the Vernon city website of council meetings, I was recently able to view the May 28 meeting while hiking in the Adirondacks of New York state.

One of the issues before council was the variance request for a property on Adventure Bay Road. I was impressed by the way in which the issue was addressed by Coun. Brian Quiring.

His probing and pertinent questions about structures and their relevance to the properties on which developers hoped to have them situated has been and continues to be, a valuable contribution to the proceedings in council.

We all have our areas of expertise, and the presence of the councillor in terms of the practical knowledge he brings to the regular discussions on property variances is a key element to the well-functioning city council.

For the last few years, I have observed him bring that level of enlightenment to variance issues, and I hope that I will continue to see that contribution from him in years to come in council chambers.
