Former DO board member applauds council for signing economic development agreement

By on March 26, 2014

Dear Editor:

I read with interest your reporting on the, soon to be finalized, contract between the Town of Osoyoos and Destination Osoyoos.

The agreement will cover a five-year period and will concentrate on economic development.

Having been involved at the board level of DO for many of the years when the previous working relationship with the town covered economic development, I for one would have wished that this could have happened sooner.

None the less, the mayor and council are to be commended that they recognize the critical need to our community to provide a professional well planned proactive approach to economic development in our town.

While the numbers reported for expenses including remuneration are quite modest, it is an important beginning.

Thank you for allowing me to write about this issue.

Derek Noske

Osoyoos, B.C.
