Board considers requests for Nottawaseppi casino revenue

The board in charge of distributing gaming revenues from the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of Potawatomi Indians of Michigan met today.

The FireKeepers Local Revenue Sharing Board approved $351,383 in requests from local governments. But it asked for more information about $182,978 in order to make sure the money is directly caused by the FireKeepers Casino or the reservation.

The tribe's Class III gaming compact calls for 2 percent of slot machine profits to be shared with the community. The tribe's first payment to the fund was $1.93 million, twice what was anticipated.
