Wash Co. to approach Riverside about revenue sharing

Posted: Wednesday, April 1st, 2009 at 7:49 am

The city of Riverside and Washington County are at odds over a revenue sharing agreement that was forged when the casino was built. County Attorney Barb Edmondson says they should continue to be paid part of the roughly $1.7-million the city gets from Riverside Casino. Riverside City officials have stated in letters to the county, that they feel the agreement has created constitutional debt, therefore the city was not authorized to enter into the contract in the first place. A meeting between the two entities is expected before July first, when payment is due.
