City making cuts in response to Seneca Nation compact dispute

The city of Salamanca is out $3.7 million this year as a result of a compact dispute between the Seneca Nation and the state of New York.

About half of the city's budget comes from the tribe's gaming enterprise. But the tribe is holding back the money because it says the state has allowed an expansion of non-Indian gaming.

The city is cutting 49 jobs as a result of the dispute.
