While there are no winners for the Accessibility Award of Merit in Williams Lake this year, all of the nominated businesses will be commended for their efforts and will receive a letter of congratulations from the city.
The Best Western Hotel, Atwood Medical Clinic and Gendun Drubpa Buddhist Centre were nominated for the award, but when the three-member accessibility award of merit committee visited each site, it could not reach consensus and in the end did not grant the award.
“We have been doing the this for three years,” said coun. Surinderpal Rathor. “Everybody had different opinions; all three had done a very good job, but nobody was perfect.”
Rather than lower the standards of the award policy, it was suggested that no one be named the winner.
