City, NPC trying to finalize people mover plans
From the Niagara Falls Review:
A deal that could lead to a new mass-transit system serving the tourism areas could be finalized as early as Friday, the mayor and Niagara Parks Commission manager say.
Mayor Ted Salci is scheduled to meet with Niagara Parks Commission chairwoman Fay Booker and general manager John Kernahan Friday, in a bid to finalize their existing “agreement in principle” to operate a people mover system and cash in on $50-million in available federal and provincial funding.
“Our negotiations are continuing. They’re moving well,” Salci said in an interview. “The agreement is a master agreement with the Niagara Parks Commission outlining the obligations of each party,” the mayor said.
