This is my first test show.. but I wanted to break down the news that just came out of Triple H & Vince McMahon not working well together
With Niagara Falls City Councilman Andy Touma we discussed a number of past, present and future issues that impact the lives of Niagara Falls residents. We discussed the city's $10,000 grant to the Hard Rock Café New Year guitar drop celebration. We also discussed a number of budgetary issues.
I restated my position that in 2015 The Vince Anello Show will be about problem solving in our community.
We have already begun one such effort with a group of taxpayers who want to learn the process of the city of Niagara Falls budget. We will continue to meet the second Wednesday of every month to prepare for the 2016 budget process. 2015 will be the year that the Vince Anello Show will keep on the front burner issues such as, the Niagara Falls City Charter, Sanitation Cost, Healthcare Cost and a Spending Policy for Casino Revenues.
Councilmember Touma made a commitment that he will be on the show as often as possible, Councilman Walker once a month. Happy New Year
The Coffee Shop Report.
I'm going to talk about what I hear at our local Coffee Shops. Here is what I've heard in the coffee shops in the last few days.
One concern people have is that the YMCA is changing hands and possibly becoming a homeless shelter with about 100 rooms and it would house homeless men.
Another bit of news is the possible retirement of for our DPW director David Kinney. I'm sure that some people will miss him dearly.
People are talking about the library. It is financially strapped, the building needs major maintenance work and again this year the staff was reduced. Personally I believe that the city needs a library, a good library.
Some people are still talking about the remarks that the Jimmy Fallon made on the Tonight Show. He compared the city of Niagara Falls New York with the city of Niagara Falls Ontario and he did not have kind words for Niagara Falls, New York. Most people, though,agreed with the remarks. They say that he was right but we don't like to hear it.
I keep harping away about the casino money. I see casino money as the seed corn for future development in our city. If we keep using that resource for the day-to-day operation of the city in 5 to 10 years we will not have enough Casino Money either.
The coffee shop report
Well the issue of casino money and how we spend it is starting to capture the attention of not only the press but also social media.
For seven years now, I have been warning that we have to be vigilant in the use of casino revenues casino revenues are considered by the state comptroller to be nonrecurring revenues and should be treated as such.
In an article in the Niagara Gazette posted by Don Glynn he points out the concerns of Niagara Falls Ontario mayor Jim Diodati regarding the casino on Canadian side.
The article states that in the last four years revenues at the casino have dropped one hundred and one million. To counter that he is suggesting that the casino offer free beverages. In the past few weeks I've also heard that the revenues at the casino on our side have dropped.
Last Tuesday I said that in 5 to 10 years we would not have enough casino money to make up for funding of the day-to-day operation of the city
It is important to put the brakes on now. The city Council must legislate a spending policy that will ensure proper funding for the level of services that the taxpayers are asking for and expect.

Unfortunately, when it comes to governing our city, the blessing of casino revenue has caused some negative side effects. We are developing the habits of the stereotypical spoiled rich kid. When the kid goofs up his dad's money can smooth it over. Our city government is developing the same characteristics. Inefficiencies in some departments are smooth over with casino money. Poorly implemented efforts or contracts are propped up with casino money. Noise created by dissatisfaction within the workforce is muffled with casino money. Do overs, are done over with casino money.
We will talk about the City Engineer position, the $500,000 of Casino money for temporary positions and the Sweet Team. As I've been saying for many years, including my time in office, a casino revenue spending policy is necessary. Legitimate, transparent governments have written policies to establish their responsibilities and the method for carrying out those responsibilities.
Sanitation, recycling and clean neighborhoods is one of our latest fiasco's
Employee Healthcare benefits is another issue. Healthcare is so expensive and complicated that the unions and the city formed a committee in 2006 to address healthcare issues separate from the negotiations of regular bargaining agreements. The city has failed to hold regular meetings to find ways of reducing cost.
Another long standing pet peeve of mine is the Niagara Falls city charter.
That effort was led by Councilwoman Barbara Geracitano and myself. The law department has managed to stall that effort, even though the work was done 17 years ago.
Let's make 2015 the year of change, change in attitude of our public officials, financial discipline, and a plan that is clear enough to where we can clearly understand where we are going
