Financial miscues at Arts Council continue

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – Mismanagement has become a common theme with the Arts Council in Buffalo, and another chapter is unfolding as the organization prepares for dissolution.

Council Board President Lynda Stephens has admitted to the New York State Council on the Arts that the local group does not possess nearly fifty thousand dollars to pay its remaining grants. The Council was legally required to save that money for distribution amongst local organizations.

The Attorney General's Office is investigating.
