Niagara Gazette: Obtaining docs on Centennial Park “curiouser and curiouser”

November 4, 2023

Newspaper reports: “It’s not the first time the newspaper has been denied access to documents related to Centennial Park.”

In an article in the Niagara Gazette, the newspaper describes how it has been “unable — despite months of trying — to secure from the administration a copy of a grant application to National Grid seeking funds to cover half the cost of a $140,000 feasibility study for the project.”

The Gazette also reports: “The newspaper learned this week that while the city hired a consultant last year to compile data for the application, it was actually submitted in February by Niagara County, not the City of Niagara Falls. The newspaper acquired a copy of the application and related documents from the county the same day a representative from Restaino’s administration said the city doesn’t have its own copy while suggesting the application may not actually exist.”
