Homebuilder, council face off again

Brantford homebuilder and former city councilor Mike Quattrociocchi will find out tonight if council will approve his application for a site plan agreement governing the third phase of his controversial housing project on Grand River Avenue.

The application failed on a tie vote two weeks ago, but it is on tonight's council agenda for consideration.

At first, Quattrociocchi held out hope that he may still win, because Coun. Vince Bucci was absent on the first vote, and was believed to support his application. But when he found out the Mayor Mike Hancock, who did support it the first time, is away on business, he began lobbying other councillors over the weekend.

"I still hope to get enough support," he said.
