EZ Rock’s Mayor’s Report for March 17: Scott Duke must decide whether to resign
The ball is in Councillor Scott Duke’s court as he considers whether he should resign over the public perception that he is caught in a conflict of interest over his business, Revelstoke Vacation Rentals, and his responsibility as a City Councillor.
Mayor Mark McKee made that clear during in this week’s EZ Rock Mayor’s Report on 101.6 FM. He said he has discussed the issue with Council as a whole and with Duke as an individual. It’s now up to Duke to make a decision.
McKee and program host Shaun Aquiline also discussed the budget. Council is considering a 5% tax increase for the City’s budget, but it will be a while before that is carved in stone.
He also talks about the way this brutal winter has made inroads into the snow-removal budget and the toll it has taken on the city’s road surfaces, which are pocked with pot holes.
Mayor McKee, Shaun Aquiline and EZ Rock’s student reporters welcome questions from all members of the pubic about local issues. However, comments and questions about the City and issues of public interest should also be sent directly to Council.

EZ Rock and The Revelstoke Current are collaborating by posting the radio station’s Mayor’s Report on The Current.
This is one way that local media can work together to ensure that the people of Revelstoke have access to all the information they need to remain fully informed about City Council, our municipal government and events of interest to Revelstokians.
If you have any questions about the City or local issues and events that concern you, post them on The Current and Shaun Aquiline from EZ Rock will ask your question for you and Mayor McKee will answer it on next Friday’s Mayor Report.
