CLEVELAND (AP) - Ohio school districts are happy to get their share of casino taxes, but say it won't make up for cuts in state aid.
The state has passed out more than $111 million in casino taxes, mostly to counties, cities and school districts, since the first Ohio casinos opened last year.
According to The Cleveland Plain Dealer, the latest casino tax distributions went out during the past week.
In suburban Cleveland, Berea school officials will use their first check for $142,512 for general operating expenses.
Interim Berea school treasurer Dale Cummins says declining property values and the state's decision to cut reimbursement for phased-out business taxes have cost the district $2.5 million this fiscal year. She says the casino money "doesn't even begin to cover the reductions."
