From the Niagara Falls Review:
The Niagara Parks Commission wants to go public.
After 124 years of meeting in private, commissioners voted unanimously Friday to open their doors to the public and the media.
“I made a motion at the parks commission today that the meetings, in the spirit of openness and transparency … be open to the public and press,” said Vince Kerrio, a city councillor and the city’s representative on the 12- member provincial agency.
Open meetings is the only way to dispel misconceptions about what goes on at meetings, he said.
