Council chairman moves up Monday meeting time to 4:30 p.m.

Niagara Gazette — There's been a change in schedule for Monday's meeting of the Niagara Falls City Council. 

Due to a “personal matter” involving one of the council members, Chairman Glenn Choolokian announced Thursday plans to change the time of a council session scheduled for Monday evening from 7 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The council opens the floor to public comment and takes formal action on all matters at an evening session generally scheduled for 7 p.m. 

Choolokian said Thursday he was asked by a council member to accommodate his need to attend the meeting earlier in the day for personal reasons and he obliged. 

Formal notice of the intent to hold a "special meeting" was delivered to the other members of the council, the city clerk's office and the press on Thursday afternoon. The notice references to "act on the city council agenda" as the special meeting's purpose. 

Under Section 3.9b of the city charter, special meetings may be held at anytime on the call of the chairman or any three members of the council. The notice of any special meeting is to be delivered to council members "not less than" 72 hours before the time of the special meeting.

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.
