CITY OF NIAGARA FALLS, NY CASINO FUNDS AS OF 10-29-2013.pdf

Ratings: (0)|Views: 18 |Likes:
Published by New York Senate
Niagara Falls recently received an $89 million check from New York State as the City's share of casino revenue. To ensure accountability and transparency, Senator Maziarz and the Niagara Falls City Council are teaming up to provide you with accounting of how this money is spent.
When the Council approves spending, you will know!
The Casino Revenue, both the current amount and that which the City receives each year, can only be spent through City Council approval. After each Council meeting, where casino funds are appropriated, a new report will be published, providing YOU with details of how each dollar is spent.
The bi-monthly expenditures can be viewed on Senator Maziarz's website.
It is essential that the City is transparent in all casino revenue spending, and is held accountable for the taxpayers of Niagara Falls.
