Perryville will receive impact money from the Hollywood Casino. Perryville Mayor Jim Eberhardt said Cecil County officials inserted a sunset clause that he and the town commissioners disagree with. The clause gives an expiration date to the agreement for impact money use that would bring the agreement to an end in three years.
“We did not agree to the sunset clause,” Eberhardt said. His said his impression was that after the three years, the county planned to change the impact percentages to Perryville’s detriment, reducing the agreed portion of 35 percent.
