Special council meeting Thursday
From the Niagara Falls Review:
A special council meeting has been called for Thursday to discuss the city’s continued concerns about Ontario Lottery and Gaming’s modernization plan.
“We’ve gone on record with having serious concerns with modernization, the way it’s being rolled out, and serious concerns of up to 1,400 jobs being in jeopardy (at the casinos in Niagara Falls),” said Mayor Jim Diodati.
“We’ve done a couple of public meetings and rallies and gatherings (opposing the plan) – we’ve met with the provincial government, we’ve met with OLG, and (Thursday’s meeting will be about) next-step endorsements from council.”
Council is also scheduled to deal with a funding grant application for this year’s New Year’s Eve concert.
