Dyster to discuss plan for Niagara Falls' share of casino revenue

Mayor Paul A. Dyster has called a news conference for 3 p.m. Tuesday to talk about the city's plans for its share of revenue from Seneca Niagara Casino.

Dyster will announce a "step-by-step course of action" during a session planned for Council Chambers in City Hall. 

"There are many questions surrounding this settlement and I want to communicate the facts directly to the public," Dyster said in a written statement released Sunday afternoon.

Here's Dyster's full statement:

"Last Thursday’s announced settlement between New York State and the Seneca Nation of Indians was critically important for the City of Niagara Falls. I sincerely thank Governor Cuomo, President Synder and all the dedicated men and women who brought this dispute to an end. Most importantly, I thank the citizens of the City of Niagara Falls for their faith and endurance. There were many outside forces that attempted to use this dispute to break and divide this community. As your Mayor, I am very proud that we did not let that happen.

"Now we must move fast forward, and carry on with the people’s business. There are many questions surrounding this settlement and I want to communicate the facts directly to the public. My administration has been prepared for this settlement from day one, and it is time to discuss our plan by the numbers."
