A Niagara Falls city employee who was reprimanded for posting a "whites only" sign in 2008 is back in the news.

James R. Curtis was suspended for posting the sign, but reinstated and promoted through senority to a position of crew leader.

Now, the DPW worker is being accused of having a prostitute in his city truck while he was on city time. Mayor Paul Dyster said Thursday that Curtis was put on unpaid administrative leave after the incident, which allegedly happened on Wednesday. Curtis has been with the city for 28 years.
