One of our longest serving local politicians is calling it a day …and calling for a better relationship for Trail and its immediate neighbours.
After 27 consecutive years on Trail city council Gord Derosa has decided it’s time to move on.
He concedes he has to be careful with what he says given his role on the Columbia Basin Trust board.
But he has been forthright in lamenting the friction created by Trail’s move to absorb the Columbia Gardens Business Park at Waneta and figures there has to be a better way at regional governance .
Derosa says perhaps a new mayor and fresh ideas around the table can take the idea of a District Municipality forward.
