Wake Up and Smell the … Roses

The GazetteWhile Kirkland Town Hall is proud to have the crossed sewers’ issue swept under the carpet, another West Island neighborhood is starting to look into the water pollution problem: Dollard-des-Ormeaux plans to launch city-wide inspection in 2016.

However, from this point on, the DDO story will be different from ours. For reasons beyond an ordinary Kirkland citizen’s understanding, DDO Town Hall plans to treat its citizens with respect and does not threaten or accuse them of wrongdoing.

According to Mayor Ed Janiszewski, while a reimbursement policy has yet to be formalized, the Town will take a major part of the responsibility. Read more in The Gazette, 25 Nov. 2015, by Albert Kramberger.

DDO citizens are lucky to have a Town Hall that cares.

    We, the KCA have endured so much unnecessary grief and frustration, expended countless hours dealing with this poorly managed mess. This is all due to the lack of foresight and empathy from the Kirkland council. It all shamefully falls on them. Congratulations to the DDO citizens for having a thoughtful and insightful mayor, and they won’t have to suffer like we have.

    Why did it take that long, I wonder?
    The Town of Kirkland should get you a test report. If the test results are positive, you should talk to the Town hall in order to make sure that they extend their compensation policy to cover your case. Unless, of course the cross connection resulted from some later alteration to the house.
