Niagara Falls council to hold special meeting on funding New Year’s Eve event

NIAGARA FALLS - The City Council will hold a special meeting at 4 p.m. Friday in City Hall to reconsider whether to provide city funding for a New Year’s Eve event downtown.

Lawmakers balked at a proposal earlier this month to provide $40,000 in city funding for the free outdoor concert and ball drop organized by the Hard Rock Cafe, which is scheduled to happen on Old Falls Street and at the Giacomo on First Street. The amount to be considered Friday is $10,000.

Lawmakers will also consider a proposal to hire four temporary employees in the Department of Public Works to assist with snow removal.
