City chips in $350,000 for new falls illumination
From the Niagara Falls Review:
The city will contribute $350,000 towards a $4-million public-private project that will modernize the illumination of the falls.
The city will take the $350,000 from what is expected to be an approximately $4.5-million fourth-quarter payment in April from Ontario Lottery and Gaming for hosting two casinos.
Niagara Falls also has $1.7 million remaining from the $18.4 million it received from the first three fiscal quarters.
“This is very incredible, state-of-the-art, technology,” Serge Felicetti, the city’s director of business development, told councillors this week.
