Power deal debated by city council, mayor

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette —

Dyster has repeatedly said that the city fully expects to be paid the money it is owed after the arbitration between the state and Senecas is settled.

"We're not involved in litigation, but there is ongoing arbitration in which the state is fighting from a position that vindicates our interests," Dyster said.

Once the city receives the payment from arbitration, which is expected to be settled in the first half of 2013, it will be able to repay the power authority and return to the original deal, Dyster said.

"If you agree to go ahead with the acceleration of revenue," Dyster said to the council, "we want to have the ability to go back to the other direction."

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.
