Belleville adds to list of Casino beneficiaries

Kingston, ON, Canada / CKWS TV

Belleville’s casino is only a few months old – but the city already has a laundry list of items they’ll pay for with their cut of the action.

As part of the agreement with OLG, the city will receive an annual cheque based on revenues generated from the venue – this evening councillors voted in favour of putting some of the funds towards new police cars as well as police infrastructure and the municipal library.

Brian Cousins/City Treasurer: “There’s about 8 different categories and the majority of it is within the infrastructure, rehab- rehabilitation. So the casino money will just provide another alternative funding source for our various capital projects.”
