Casino cash: Looking ahead by looking back at how funds were spent in Niagara Falls

The local share of casino revenue is ready to flow again.

And the communities that host the Seneca Nation's three casinos are more than ready to receive it.

There hasn't been an official breakdown released publicly of how the $89 million will be split up between the City of Niagara Falls and the other entities in line under state legislation to receive part of the funding.

Late last year, The News looked at how the Niagara Falls spent what it received before the dispute shut off the flow of funds.

Here's an analysis of how the city spent $48 million in casino revenue. The work was done in November by my predecessor Charlie Specht.
