Niagara Falls will repave fewer streets because of casino dispute

NIAGARA FALLS - The city will be repaving fewer streets this season thanks to the casino cash crunch.

Mayor Paul A. Dyster has called a news conference for 10 a.m. to talk about the city's street paving plans for the upcoming season.

The city will be using the "pothole killer" this year, a machine previously used in the city and in other Western New York municipalities that can more quickly fix potholes and requires less manpower than traditional means.

Check back shortly after 10 a.m. for the full story.

11:12 a.m. update: Here's a list of the streets to be repaved this season. City officials said they expect to get more streets repaved once an agreement is reached between the Seneca Nation of Indians and the state over owed slot machine revenue.

12:32 p.m. update: Here's my story. More updates coming to story soon.
