Only choice for county council is to accept SOPF offer

Re: Prince Edward County Council to Consider SOPF offer for barge sinking, The Picton Gazette Sept. 5, 2019

This should be very easy for council. 50 litres of an undetermined substance leaked into 90 million litres of Picton Bay, resulting in the municipality spending $600,000 dollars in about 15 days according to Mark Kerr who is the Communication and Media co-ordinator for the County.

That was the second surprise. When was this position created and why?

Who overreacted and authorized the spending of $600,000?

Take the $394,000 offered by the Ship-source Oil Pollution Fund and run.  That is why it was created.

To proceed to the federal court will only help the lawyers not the taxpayers of this county.
