Niagara Region adopts new Councillor expense policy

A new councillor expense policy is in place at the Niagara Region. 

Some councillors have been under fire recently for excessive expenses like St. Catharinres Councillor Andy Petrowski's legal fees and Fort Erie Councillor Sandy Annunziata's 
trips to Toronto to be on appear on a radio show.

Chair Alan Caslin has been suggesting that there was no policy to govern councillor expenditures. 

However St. Catharines Councillor Tim Rigby called that nonsense,  and says he's hoping this new policy is as good as the old. 

The new policy will be sent to the Corporate Services Committee for some fine tuning. 

Council also agreed to post Councillor expenses to their website dating back to 2015 .
