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.

Casino Niagara has started the next phase of a $7-million investment it says will “deliver an elevated” gaming and entertainment experience for all visitors.

The current phase of the project focuses on a transformation of the second level into a destination for sports fans, food enthusiasts, entertainment seekers and visitors.

Completion is scheduled for this fall.

The project includes a $3.5 million spend on infrastructure and redesign for a fresh entertainment experience that greets visitors as they walk through the doors.

An additional $3.5 million is being invested in technology and gaming, to offer guests the next generation of gaming.
