    Niagara Falls facing major financial trouble

    No Comments

    From WGRZ Channel 2 in Buffalo:

    A draft of an audit being prepared by the Office of the New York State Comptroller calls into question the budget and spending policies of the City of Niagara Falls and warns of potentially dire financial circumstances for the Cataract City unless officials there “take immediate steps” to get their financial house in order.

    The draft report notes the administration of Mayor Paul Dyster’s pattern of using casino revenues — which have steadily decreased in recent years — to balance the city’s budget, despite warnings against using so much of the casino revenues to do so.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Ontario’s auditor general is “not likely” to launch a special investigation of the Niagara Parks Commission following a Queen’s Park committee’s vote asking him to stay out.

    “I’d have to say, at least in the short term, it is not something I would be pursuing,” auditor general James McCarter told The Review Wednesday.

    The public accounts committee voted 5-3 against New Democrat MPP France Gelinas’ motion calling for a special audit of the commission.
