From the Niagara Falls Review:
Holding annual general meetings could help the Niagara Parks Commission regain the public’s confidence, a government report says. It’s an idea chairman Jim Williams said he pitched when consultants prepared the report in the spring.
“That would give the public an opportunity to pose whatever questions they would have. It would also give us a chance to say, ‘Here’s the year in review’ and the next couple of years in advance,” Williams said Monday, responding to the release of two full reports whose summaries had only been made public in September.
“I would love to get in front of an audience and say why we went ahead with the Maid of the Mist lease,” he said, referring to the controversial deal that put the commission under the government’s microscope for a year and a half.
