NPC and the city of Niagara Falls settle dispute
The Niagara Parks Commission and the city of Niagara Falls have settled a three year old disagreement over $950 thousand dollars.
Right now, under the Niagara Parks Act, there are payments in lieu of taxes made to the city of Niagara Falls for services like fire and other things.
After a 20 year contract expired in 2009, then Chair Faye Booker had claimed the parks couldn't afford the voluntary payments anymore.
The city claimed it was owed money for the three years there was no contract including 20-12
The commission has paid their tab and has signed on for another 15 years.
Under the Niagara Parks Act the NPC is only required to pay the city about 45 hundred dollars a year.
