Spallumcheen council’s hand is being forced on the issue of a proposed quarry on Back Enderby Road as time to respond is running out.
With emotions high on the issue, council would like more time to get feedback from neighbours but a deadline is preventing them from being as thorough as they would have liked.
“We have to respond in a certain amount of time. Things may seem out of order and may be out of order, but in my mind it’s important for us to put our recommendation in before the time allowed lapses,” Coun. Todd York said of the motion he put forward. “I agree everyone should be heard first, but in this case we don’t have time for that.”
