Time to ticket untidy property

A letter to the editor in response to Invermere council's new 'last resort' tickets.

Re: “District unveils ‘last resort’ tickets,” July 6

The District of Invermere is to be commended for taking a proactive approach to tidying the appearance of our town. Al Miller is right in affirming that a bylaw without enforcement is useless.

One of the most glaring areas of messy property is the abandoned condominium complex on 10th Avenue, north of 12th Street — next to Strand’s.

This has existed in that condition for some time. If it is not rectified immediately, the developer’s bonding company should be required to take appropriate action.
