Sewer Grant Update !!

The District of Tofino announced 2 weeks ago that it was unsuccessful in its application for a 2011 sewer system grant from the gas tax fund.The document below from the District would indicate that the grant application was premature as there is no Stage 3 Liquid Waste Management Plan in place. I don't understand why the District is spending time and money on a grant application that it seems to already know will be unsuccessful ? I don't understand why it takes years to come up with a Stage 3 LWMP when all the projected sewer flows were part of the agreement signed with Esowista in 2008 ? This application and the Stage 3 study were undertaken by the previous council but same staff.With millions of dollars at stake it is time to start taking the sewer problem and the grant process seriously !
