    From the Buffalo News:

    Niagara County and the Niagara Tourism and Convention Corp. have agreed in principle on a new three-year contract for the NTCC to continue as the county’s official tourism promotion agency.

    NTCC President John Percy said details remain to be negotiated, but the agreement staved off the June 18 expiration of the contract, which the county extended by only one year last year because of a dispute over the corporation’s performance.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The city’s wish list for its new casino cash windfall will have to wait.

    Council deferred discussions on what to do with hefty new funds expected this year from Ontario Lottery & Gaming until the new funding agreement is officially signed. The OLG has given the city a Sept. 30 deadline to enter into a new agreement which will see Niagara Falls receive an estimated $18 to $20 million for hosting two casinos.

    The new funding formula replaces the guaranteed $3 million the city receives per year.

    Council will wait until its September or October meeting to start discussing the funds.

    Rink at the Brink to Return for 2010-2011 Season

    As previously announced, the Rink at the Brink will be back on Niagara Parks Commission land this year. The official press release is available here:

    Thousands of visitors to Niagara Falls will once again be able to experience the thrill of skating just steps from the Horseshoe Falls, thanks to the decision taken today by The Niagara Parks Commission (NPC) Board.

    During its regularly scheduled Commission meeting, the NPC Board voted to rescind their August decision to terminate the agreement between Niagara Parks and Winter Festival of Lights (WFOL) organizers concerning the operation of the Festival’s iconic Rink at the Brink ice skating attraction near Table Rock Complex.

    Ongoing meetings among staff members at both organizations have allayed concerns expressed by NPC and have resulted in plans and commitments to alleviate operational concerns and expedite future on-site rehabilitation once the skating season is complete.
