A Belleville City Councillor is sounding off on decisions made by city staff for work in the downtown.
Changes will be made in the work in Phase 2, including the closure of Front Street from Victoria to Campbell for the entire summer.
Councillor Mitch Panciuk tells Quinte News he sympathizes with the merchants, who he says were given false promises.
Panciuk says the fact that the Mayor’s Implementation Team did not vote against the change was wrong.
Work begins Monday on Phase 2 of the downtown revitalization.
There is a meeting tonight at the Build Belleville office on Pinnacle Street at 5:30 p.m for stakeholders and merchants.
