Join me tonight for a live blog of the Niagara Falls City Council meeting. The work session begins at 4 p.m. and the regular meeting begins at 7.
The City Council is expected to call for a spending freeze in city government because of the lack of slot machine revenues from the Seneca Niagara Casino.
The lack of revenues, which have been held up in a disagreement between the state and the Senecas, have taken a toll on the city, as documented here and here. The city council voted to form a lobbying committee to push the state to release the revenues, though no money was set aside for lobbying. I'll ask who exactly is on the committee tonight.
Meanwhile, expect a presentation on the issue from City Controller Maria C. Brown.
