Council agrees to NTCC extension


Niagara Gazette — “I think now we all have to get to the table and get this performance review completed and move forward with a permanent contract as soon as possible,” Percy said. “Because that gives us stability to do future marketing and future programming.”

Choolokian said he and his colleagues on the council majority passed the extension so they, like the county legislature, could work toward a more thorough evaluation of the work the agency has been doing in recent years.

“Instead of rushing things and passing (a long-term extension) we want to take the time to do more research,” Choolokian said.

Choolokian said the council will wait for the performance report from the consultant and use that information, along with information provided by local business owners, to make a decision in regards to a long-term contract.

Choolokian said the possibility of the city ending its relationship with NTCC after the extension expires remains an option.

“It gives us more time to make sure they are doing what they are supposed to,” he said.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
