Wise words for downtown issues from Nelson seniors

A few of the residents at Jubilee Manor got together over coffee one morning to discuss current events.

A few of the residents at Jubilee Manor got together over coffee one morning to discuss current events. We noticed there are some downtown issues that always seem to be popping up and we thought we may be able to provide some words of wisdom.

The first issue is dogs on Baker Street. Our solutions are: please leave your dog at home, if possible. If not, for example, being a tourist, please do not tie your dog to parking meters, please keep your dog on a leash and please clean up after your dog. If you decide not to clean up after your dog and you are spotted not doing so, you will receive a fine of $50.

On the issue on amenity areas. If you are hanging around doing nothing and clogging up the amenity areas, we can find you something to do. You can pick up litter or clean up after the dog owners we didn’t catch not cleaning up after their dogs! It was also suggested that if you cannot find a job, that you could find somewhere to volunteer, which in turn may lead to a job. It was also suggested that there may be a need for more foot police.

When it comes to sandwich boards, it was decided that sandwich boards are fine as long as someone is wearing it! That way, they are not blocking the sidewalk and are very movable when need be.

Thank you for listening to our words of wisdom. We hope you find it helpful!
