North Bay councillors apologize over Gardens overrun
As Moose FM reported on Tuesday, many North Bay councillors apologized Monday night for cost overruns at Memorial Gardens. One councillor was Mike Anthony. Anthony says voters can let council know how they feel especially during this October’s municipal election. Judy Koziol also said she was sorry. Koziol adds it’s easy to point fingers for what went wrong with the Gardens’ renovations but says the ultimate responsibility lies with council. Councillor Mac Bain said people will judge council on this issue but he’s hoping they also notice what council does in the future. Bain says in hindsight he should have asked to see the spreadsheet but adds he accepted staff’s word when told the project was on budget.
