Slots provide another $501,852 for township; total now over $9-million

Centre Well­ing­ton Township has just received another $501,852 for its third quarter slots payment.

The township hosts slots at the Grand River Raceway, and the province pays it 5% of the profits for each quarter.

Since the slots opened in 2003, the township has receiv­ed over $9.1-million, and has designated that money for in­frastructure projects.

Because the federal and provincial governments are offering grants for infrastruc­ture work such as roads, brid­ges, and sewers, the township has been able to leverage its slots cash to triple its infra­structure work.

Centre Wellington township is currently considering a proposal to in­crease the 200 machines by up to 20 more at the facility.
