Kamloops Councillor Dieter Dudy says he’s not in a conflict of interest as a group tries to put together a proposal for a year around public market in the parking lot next to Riverside Park.
“I am not doing this as a councillor, I’m doing it as a private citizen.”
Dudy says, he’s one of the of four people who put the idea forward through a society known the Kamloops Public Market Cooperative.
He says eventually, he will take himself out of the group totally, as the issue will be debated at Kamloops Council.
“Excuse myself is the best possible thing that I can do and at some point in time I’m likely going to completely remove myself from the project, so that there is no perception that I am gaining anything by it.”
The concept includes a 35,000-square-foot facility between Lorne Street and Heritage House.
