Belleville now has a policy in place outlining how it will handle its share of revenues coming from Shorelines Casino Belleville in the future.
Monday night city council approved a staff recommendation that revenue sharing will be done on a sliding scale depending on how much money the casino takes in, ranging from 5.25% on revenue under $65 million to .05% on revenues over $500 million.
The city will receive 4% of live gaming tables revenue.
Also, the revenues will flow into reserve accounts where 65% of the money would go to infrastructure maintenance, and 10% for economic development with smaller amounts for other items.
Bellevillle paid $1.3 million in legal fees in connection with its legal battle with Atlas Corporation which built the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre expansion.
