Cuyahoga County considers using casino tax revenue for communities


CLEVELAND (AP) — Ohio county officials are looking into distributing over $1 million in casino tax revenue toward community development.

The Cuyahoga County Council says it will hear legislation on the matter Tuesday through the Community Development Committee. Cleveland.com reports the county has received 52 applications for the 2019 grants.

County Executive Armond Budish’s administration is recommending awards of $50,000 for projects in nearly 20 different municipalities, ranging from parking programs to road repairs. Other proposed projects would provide grants for street and exterior home improvements.
