Suspension of casino cash impacts Falls finances
Wednesday, September 1, 2010 at 10:48:52 AM
A lengthy casino cash dispute between the Seneca Nation of Indians and New York state could pose some problems for the city's finances.
City Comptroller Maria Brown said Tuesday the decision by Seneca tribal leaders to suspend casino cash payments to the state is not cause for immediate concern, but could present at least one serious challenge if the two sides remain at odds months from now.
Brown said the city's 2010 budget relies on 2009 casino cash revenues to cover a debt service increase of roughly $4.5 million. Brown said the city was still awaiting payment for its share of the 2009 casino revenue when Seneca leaders agreed on Monday to withhold future allocations because they felt state-approved gambling operations threatened their Western New York casino operations. Brown said the city has enough cash reserves to cover its debt service obligations through the end of the year, but would not have sufficient funds to do the same in 2011.
