Greater Trail taxpayers have been duped when it comes to the pedestrian sewer pipe bridge.
So says Ron Joseph who was one of the main forces behind a petition that forced the estimated $9 million dollar structure to a summer referendum.
Trail, Rossland and Warfield will pay a proportional share of $4.2 million.
The regional district has not said what ,if any tax increases there may be.
Trail alone will also pay an extra $ 5 million for the crossing using future gas tax revenue to pay back that debt.
Joseph is worried the city is spreading its resources thin with another referendum on the library/museum project still to come.
