Union Bay Thanksgiving Weekend and Fall Delights

Had a walk with my neighbour today and we started talking about fall and we found some interesting delights;

Maple Leaf
In Union Bay Railway Tracks going North
Union Bay Improvement District FireHall land sold to owners from Winnipeg
As we went along the tracks going north we ran into the new construction being built on the UBID Firehall site and noticed a sign that said Quad-Lock and wondered what that meant.

We decided to stoke up the fire pit and noticed the Miscanthus x giganteus (Miscanthus giganteus, Giant Miscanthus shorter term, really tall grasses

Front yard Grasses that are 3 years old, beautiful sounds as the winds pass through in September.

Back Yard grasses provide a pleasing back drop

Now about that Thanksgiving dinner, we decided Spaghetti, Happy Thanksgiving

One might want to get there early as there is limited seating

I was out cutting my grass when my neighbour came over and asked if I was going to early voting today.

Union Bay Improvement District “Delirious” Meeting

Union Bay Improvement District meeting notice is again inaccurate, why is that?

My neighbour received a notice from the Union Bay Improvement District informing him of a meeting.

Notice of Committee of the Whole Meeting
Thursday, October 15, 2019 @ 9:00 AM
Union Bay Community Hall

Notice anything wrong he asked, I replied Thursday was October 17. So, I decided to Call the Union Bay Improvement District Office… they seemed surprised and said maybe the administrator had got the dates wrong.  She explained that there was a COW meeting scheduled for Tuesday October 15th and a regular meeting on October 17th.

I then told my neighbour and explained one would hope Union Bay Improvement District would correct the mistake. Let’s hope the Chair-less board will have trustees proofread mailouts.

Agenda document shows wrong day

Union Bay Improvement District Board Meeting shows examples of meeting Decorum Union Bay Style…..

Union Bay Improvement District Board Meeting gives examples of meeting Decorum

My neighbour and I watched the Union Bay Improvement District meeting of September 19th.

https://union-bay.ca/board-minutes/  all 1Hr. and 38 minutes and 38 seconds.

We now can understand why  Paul Healey has decided to resign as Chair.

The Record https://www.comoxvalleyrecord.com/news/union-bay-improvement-district-board-lacks-chair/

Union Bay Improvement District Chair resigns as Chair and Trustee

WOW just learned that Paul Healey the newly elected Chair and trustee has resigned effective immediately. Apparently the last meeting September 19, 2019 of the Union Bay Improvement was the straw that broke the camels back. The meeting was just under two hours and was taped, lets hope the landowners will be able to view the taped video or will this video tape be lost, edited or ????

Update September 25th, 2019 11:00am, from Trustee Kaljur stating she received a email from Paul Healey stating that he will stay on as a trustee and Trustee Vandenburg will take over as Chair
