Re: ‘Banner year’ for bylaw enforcement, Dec. 13.
White Rock city council seems to once again have gone out of its way to destroy the viability of the waterfront businesses.
The parking fees are discouraging people from dining on Marine Drive, and now the city decides to crack down with its sign bylaw enforcement – $75 for every 28 days for a banner, or simply another $850-a-year tax on the businesses that are being taxed out of business.
We would like to dine more on the waterfront, but why, when we can park at other restaurants in the area for nothing?
White Rock is so desperate for money, they not only are taxing the businesses to death, they are nickel and diming them too.
