Most folks would consider a couple of rock berms, some boulders, a large rock and some indigenous plants as prepared rubble.

Our elected consider such intentional rubble as a “facelift” for the ‘triangle’ at the carwash corner. Without asking hometown affiliation we asked 69 people at random the following:

Considering the value and availability of rocks, indigenous plants, labour and trucking – What or how much would you consider to be a reasonable bid to assemble the rocks and what do you think of the design?

The answers ranged from a low of $2500 to a high of $6900.

As to design, the answers were unanimous – what design?

“this particular piece of land represents an important corner in Oliver”states Councillor Basso

The Director of Operations says, “to get this work done for $13,500.00 is reasonable”.

Actual cost is $14,690.00 plus. It is not known to whom the local Gardener/Designer is related.

Do you feel your design getting a designed getting?

Last year In Oliver’s Triangle Park a “sick” tree was removed and replaced by a mature sapling. How many thousands of dollars do you think you spent on that?

More or less than $6900?

Less is wrong.
