Minister lukewarm on city’s Parks plan
From the Niagara Falls Review:
The Ontario government isn’t in a hurry to act on free advice from Niagara Falls council about how the Niagara Parks Commission should run.
Tourism Minister Monique Smith confirmed her staff received a July 9 letter from city hall that outlines a resolution councillors passed calling for openness at the Niagara Parks Commission.
Council suggested the Liberal government amend the Niagara Parks Act to allow the four Niagara Parks Commissioners who are also municipal politicians to report back to their councils about parks business.
“The resolution has been received by my staff. It will be taken into consideration,” Smith said in an interview with The Niagara Falls Review this week.
