From the Niagara Falls Review:
Niagara Falls council and the Niagara Parks Commission appear to be closing in on a deal to operate some kind of joint-venture People Mover System, as they face a June 30 deadline to take advantage of $50 million in government assistance or lose it.
“We’re down to the wire,” Mayor Ted Salci said Tuesday afternoon, a day after councillors authorized him to execute a deal if one can be reached Wednesday. “I haven’t signed anything yet.”
The authorization council gave the mayor Monday is a sign the city wants to be ready in the event an arrangement is worked out to create a new transit system that will run on both NPCowned property and on city streets in the tourism sector.
“I’m feeling we should be able to announce something shortly that will bring some smiles to people’s faces.”
