Seneca County is among those in the region that will get a bump in financial assistance thanks to the latest round of relief passed in the American Rescue Plan.
In fact, Seneca will receive $6.6 million as part of it.
County Manager Mitch Rowe said during a meeting last week that the funds would help cover the sales tax gap created by the pandemic.
“That amount is designed to cover the lost sales tax and gaming revenue that was less than what we budgeted before the pandemic,” he said. “When the economy locked down and the del Lago casino closed down, we didn’t get much of what we budgeted.”
