Town of Pelham hosts an ‘Evening with the Experts’

Niagara Regional Budget Chair slams Pelham’s fiscal status. Now Hear the Town’s side of the story

An Invite to members of the public from the Town of Pelham

Posted April 20th, 2017 on Niagara At Large

(A Brief Foreword from NAL publisher Doug Draper –

This Town of Pelham meeting has been called by the  town’s mayor, Dave Augustyn, and his council, at least in part, to respond to a motion tabled at a Niagara regional council meeting late this March by Port Colborne regional councillor and budget chair David Barrick, raising alarm bells  about Pelham’s financial status and the negative impact Barrick claims it could have on residents and businesses across Niagara.

Niagara At Large urges you to attend this April 24th meeting to get Pelham’s side of the story from its town councillors and senior staff. Do not let Barrick’s charges stand for themselves. Come to this meeting, get the town’s side of the story and judge for yourselves.)
