Letter: Council should think of residents first

Dear editor:

Our heart goes out to the wonderful businesses that serve Niagara-on-the-Lake. 

Hopefully the federal and provincial governments can help those affected. 

In the meantime NOTL town council has to recognize that the quality of life for residents should be the guiding priority in deciding to close Queen Street. 

Queen Street is the ONLY commercial street that crosses Old Town. The narrow residential streets, some without sidewalks, cannot handle 14,000 cars on their own without diminishing the safety and quality of life for residents and visitors. 

Council must be reminded they were elected to serve the best interest of residents.
