    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara Falls wants its voice heard as Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. seeks a service provider to run the day-to-day operations of the city’s two casinos.

    “We’re very supportive of separately managed properties, so that we can utilize the benefits of competition,” said Coun. Victor Pietrangelo.

    “We’d like to see both properties, not just one, re-branded and re-developed.”

    He said while the province is trying to find out what works best for its gaming modernization plan, the city needs to “let them know what works best for us.

    “First and foremost is the long-term security of the employees at both of our casinos. Secondly, we have the businesses that rely on the casinos, and also the people that are employed by those businesses,” said Pietrangelo.

    A new service provider could operate the two casinos in Niagara Falls in 2019.

    Ontario Lottery and Gaming has notified Falls Management Group, which operates Fallsview Casino and Casino Niagara on OLG’s behalf, it will not be extending its contract beyond its original term, which ends June 10, 2019.

    Instead, OLG expects to issue a request for pre qualification this summer as part of a process to enter a new operating agreement under a new modernization plan.

    OLG spokesman Tony Bitonti said Falls Management Group is free to take part in the bidding process.
