Huron County is set to receive another $143,000 in casino funds.

County Auditor Roland Tkach made the announcement Monday.

That total is up from $103,000 received in October, thanks to the opening of the Columbus casino.

To find out how the county can use that money, read the story published in Tuesday's Reflector. You can pick up a copy of that issue at the newspaper office or subscribe to the e-paper for less than $1 per week and read it now.

One would hope the county doesn't see this as a bonus and just goes out and blows it. How about banking this money for a rainy day(s).

In the print copy Mr. Tkach addresses that very issue and agrees with you.

Looks good.

I also heard that the state is running a surplus.

Maybe Mr. Boose can get some of the funding restored?

Start paying off that $520,000 loan (plus interest) that the Huron County Commissioners took out to pay for the courthouse vestibule that was nixed.

I thought I heard that some of this money has to go to the towns located in Huron County? Am I wrong?

You forgot how govt. works now with the messiah in charge,spend what you can so someone else doesn't get the chance to spend on something needed.
