Letter to the Editor: Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre Rocky View County should pay its fair share

If Rocky View County co-own the SLS Family Sports Centre, then why are they not contributing to the Sports Centre funding request?

Quoting from The Cochrane Times, June 3rd:  "Town Council approved a request from SLS Family Sports Centre for an additional $1.5 million to cover the
financial blow dealt by COVID-19 .  The recreation centre is co-owned by The Town of Cochrane and Rocky View County, but operated by a seperate society overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors"
The Cochrane Eagle confirmed this funding in the June 4th paper.  On the same page, the Eagle reported that Rocky View County are reporting a surplus of more than six million dollars from 2019, to be moved into the Tax Stabilization Reserve, to be accessed on a 'rainy day'.
My question is:  If Rocky View County co-own the SLS Family Sports Centre, then why are they not contributing to the Sports Centre funding request?
