In light of what they're calling shabby conditions at some of Niagara County's state parks, State Assemblyman John Ceretto and State Senator George Maziarz fired off a letter to State Parks Commissioner Rose Harvey last week demanding some answers.

The two said they're looking to find out what steps Harvey's department is taking to revitalizing state parks throughout Niagara County and to win support for legislation to restructure the state's funding to provide more local control over park resources and revenues.

Maziarz said a meeting with Harvey in June seemed productive, but he's not sure what's been done since.

And he also wants to dig into where funds supplied to the state parks system have gone.
