News Jun 10, 2019 by Richard Leitner hamiltonnews.com

Fixing parking headaches at popular spots like Webster’s Falls and reopening the Bruce Trail by Sherman Falls are among Ancaster Coun. Lloyd Ferguson’s goals as he takes over as chair of the Hamilton Conservation Authority’s board of directors.

Ferguson was elected by acclamation at the authority's June 6 annual general meeting.

His first order of business will be to tour every authority facility with senior staff, he said.

“The conservation authority is so popular now everywhere, not just Webster’s Falls and Tew’s Falls, but everywhere, so I want to get my head around this parking issue,” Ferguson said.

“We’ve got to find a way make it easier for people to come visit our sites.”

Ferguson replaces former Stoney Creek councillor Doug Conley, unseated by Brad Clark in last fall’s municipal election.

“It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and when I was chair of the police board I obviously couldn’t do both,” Ferguson said, referring to the previous post he relinquished after five years. “I’m looking forward to getting back to nature.”

Taking over as vice chair is Santina Moccio, who prevailed in a secret ballot vote over the incumbent, Puslinch representative Susan Fielding.

A city citizen appointee, Moccio had served three one-year terms as vice chair prior to choosing not to stand again last year.

The board also welcomed two new citizen appointees, Hamilton lawyer Jim Cimba and Cynthia Janzen, who has an extensive background in public relations. They replace Kris Brown and Brad Gautreau.
