Wainfleet’s Township Coucil Sets Aside Motion Calling for NPCA Supervisor

By Doug Draper

Posted November 15th, 2017 on Niagara At Large

Wainfleet Mayor April Jeffs, an NPCA board member, votes with her council to wave aside a motion calling on the Ontario government to appoint a supervisor to oversee operations at the Conservation Authority. Jeffs will run as the Ontario Tory candidate in the Welland riding in next year’s provincial election.

A motion by Wainfleet councillor Betty Konc, calling on the Ontario government to appoint a supervisor to oversee operations at the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority, was deferred by the municipality’s township council this November 14th.

A majority on the council, including Wainfleet Mayor April Jeffs, who is a member of the  NPCA’s board of directors, voted to wave aside Konc’s motion until the province’s Auditor General completes and produced the results of an audit on the Conservation Authority – possibly sometime late next year.

More from Niagara At Large on this development and what it may mean for those campaigning for change at the NPCA later. Stay Tuned.

  2. I was certain this action put forth by Councilor Betty Konc would be brushed aside by the pro Conservative Council under the mayor April Jeffs who is a sitting member of the NPCA Board and in my opinion is a firm supporter of the disgusting NPCA Cabel

  3. How did the mayor (of Wainfleet), with any integrity, vote either way.
    Surely, this was a conflict of interest. Should she (April Jeffs) not have declared that she was a member of the Board and her interest and then declined to vote at all? Tatamount to voting for oneself??
