The agreement ends a four-year dispute between Columbus and Franklin Township.

The casino sits on land that the city annexed from the township.

The Columbus Dispatch reported Columbus will get most of the estimated $4.6 million in annual income taxes, while Franklin Township will get about $750,000 each year for the next 50 years.

The city and township also agreed to share the tax revenue from businesses in a economic-development district around the casino.


Simple Enough II

I thought all counties were to see a division of revenue from all 4 casino's?


Yes, all counties in Ohio get money but, the townships or cities where the casinos are built get more.

So this would make Erie Counties take at about $2.37 a year and our townships roughly $.25?
