DebFEE Suther Lie #2

"We don't have a budget problem in Bay Village"

A Timely Read: Casino Impact on Midtown, Ed Morrison Oct 2006

Submitted by Betsey Merkel on Sun, 09/28/2008 - 00:33.

An excellent report, "Casino Impact on Midtown" by Ed Morrison on the economic impact of a casino in the Midtown area.
