The mayor of Perryville has a $680,000 beef.
We think he’s exactly right, but Cecil County doesn’t see it that way. This means Mayor James L. Eberhardt will have to stand in line, hat in hand, until the county figures out how it wants to dispense the money pouring into its coffers from the Hollywood Casino Perryville.
The casino opened in September but Perryville has yet to see a dime of its share of the proceeds. Meanwhile, the town has spent more than $500,000 of its $4.5 million operating budget to move a public works facility closer to the casino and for fire and police services.
