Cross-Connections Still the Major Topic of Kirkland Question Period

Attendance was about half of the last Kirkland council meeting held at the beginning of the month but those who came still voiced their concerns over the fact that the owners of the suspected homes with cross connected pipes have to pay for the work themselves.

A resident, who had written a letter to Mayor John Meaney, asked council why the city hired two lawyers instead of two inspection engineers to help out the affected citizens. “I am not going to answer that question,” Meaney said. “I will take it under advisement and respond to you in writing.”
