What is council role in funeral for Higgins?

I would ask: what role is Belfast City Council going to play in the funeral of Alex Higgins?

Will the council take on the role of making it an official funeral? Or will the powers-that-be simply look at each other and shrug their shoulders and ignore his passing?

Alex Hurricane Higgins was a sporting legend and is fully entitled to the recognition and respect of the city of Belfast.

His passing should be commemorated, his talent celebrated. How does Belfast intend to do this?
