If dams a danger, close park now

To the Editor,

Re: City staff highlight risk from dam breach, June 20.

If the Colliery Dam Park dams are so unsafe and people are in danger of being flooded, why hasn’t this park been closed months or years ago?

It seems to me if such a hazard exists, city council should have taken action to bar entrance to the park and disallow any building in that area.

Seems simple enough to me, but then simple always seems to have a way of becoming complicated.

One would think the former choice would have been the best.
