Kleinhans Music Hall is expected today to file a claim against the city for $110,000.

The money, which was inadvertently left out of this year's city budget, is meant to pay rent the Buffalo Philharmonic owes to the music hall for its 1989-90 season.

Kleinhans officials met this morning with members of the Common Council to discuss how the city would correct this year's budget to fund the philharmonic.

North Council Member David Rutecki, who was in today's meeting, said the hall is filing a claim because the money is meant to pay a debt from last year.

Resolutions calling for the city to pay the music hall's claim will be sent to Council's Claims Committee.

The claim can then be paid from the city's judgments and claims account, he said.

Rutecki said he expects Mayor Griffin to veto the measure. The Council apparently has nine votes to support the the bailout and override Griffin's veto.
