A story of roads and drainage The two issues that are at the forefront of candidates minds in St.
Andrews' Ward 3 are two issues that are likely at the top of many of that area's residents' minds: roads and drainage. Both Kurtiss Krasnesky, who's running for his fourth term in office, and challenger Paul Wereschuk agree that these are the top issues in the area. Wereshuk, the former owner of Wereschuk Funeral Chapel and Little Critters Pet Crematorium, says that council is full of talk about drainage, but they fail to come through when it comes to action. "People have spent years and years on drainage and stuff like that, and nothing's being done. We're flooding out, and granted it has been a heavy year for rains, but still. You know if you spent 15 years of trying to solve these problems, they should be solved by now," he said. "If all you're going to do is talk about it, that's what ticks me off." Krasnesky for his part says that after two very wet years in the area, drainage is number one on his hit list, and that he has a plan for dealing with it. "To say that drainage is number one is a motherhood statement in my opinion. The question should be what does that actually mean?" he asked. Krasnesky has a four point plan for dealing with drainage problems that he presented to council coach outlet stores vero beach on Sept. 23. The first two parts call for addressing the existing drainage problems, and maintenance of culverts. The third part, which Krasnesky believes is something the RM has never looked at before, is investigating a new drainage system to the river, and the fourth part is to bring in local expertise to review the plans. "I thinks it's just a sensible approach," he said. "At least there's a four point coach outlet purses difference plan attached to the motherhood statement." Both candidates also agree that the RM needs to do something about the state of the roads in the area. "We have to look at a higher grade gravel, and just the way we gravel roads, grade roads, and snow clear the roads," Krasnesky said. Wereschuk, meanwhile, is discouraged by the condition of the roadways. "They're terrible," he noted. "I hear that the kids lose five days of school a year because the road isn't plowed. I also hear it's dangerous because it's not flat, it's been rounded and a lot of people have coach outlet coupon been running into ditches." Krasnesky, who's been living in the area since 1993, says that what makes him different as councillor is that he's "not really cut from the political cloth." He added that looking after the municipality's finances is another of his major concerns. "The way I look the RM, and the way I deal with it, it's a $9.2 million business. You need to make decision regarding that business that's good for the entire RM, and not how many votes you'll get," he said. Wereschuk, meanwhile, worries that council has grown complacent and needs some fresh blood in it. "We've got people in council, and they've been there a long time" he said.
"There's nothing wrong with these people, it's just that I think they lose insight to what's going on in the areas." He also believes that councillors are spreading themselves thin by being on too many different committees. He says some councillors are on 20 30 different committees, and don't have coach outlet stores 60620 any focus.
