As a rule The Lennox Wave is keeping out of the argument, but we did have a quick chat to Council General Manager Paul Hickey about last week’s Council Meeting and the concerns of Councillors who voted against the recision motion—in other words who voted to move the market from the Lake to the Community Centre.
