It is with sadness that we report the passing of William Summers. Mr. Summers was a city councillor in Ward 3 in the early 1970s.

His wife, Joyce, was also an employee of the City of Port Colborne in the Parks Department starting in the early 1970s. She retired several years ago.

The flags at City Hall have been lowered in his memory.
