Terrance Martin’s presentation to Council regarding the termination of his contract as Boat Launch Operator — 5 Comments

  1. hopefully they will see the value of your services in the community. As the operator of the launch, and in hole and in part as an oganizer of events such as taking on the derdy. Thuss continuing to bring dollars and donations to Sooke.

  2. On the surface both Mr. Martin and the city report offer valid arguments for their point of view. I agree that the past arrangement is unsatisfactory as the district operates the launch at a loss while Mr. Martin receives 90% of revenue generated, I also at the same time fail to understand how, unionized city employees, there only occasionally, would increase revenue, or be more cost effective. This matter must be revisited next year at this time, to determine if Mr. Martin’s termination was justified financially, or lead to a series of unintended consequences, some which may well prove to be negative.

    • It is obvious to me that council has given little attention to the matter…therefore the taxpayer will be subsidizing the launch for about 40k a year more than the revenue brings in. Council has dropped the ball on this one.

      • The brief upon which they based the decision does not support that statement.
