The Town of Hanover has received a second quarter non-tax gaming revenue payment of $309,990 for hosting Gateway Casinos.

Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation reports that since February 2001, Hanover has received almost $20 million in non-tax gaming revenue.

“Our government is pleased that land-based casinos have reopened safely and are contributing to our provincial economy again,” said Bill Walker, Member of Provincial Parliament for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound. “Host communities are once again benefiting from local employment and the financial proceeds that support vital services through Municipality Contribution Agreements.”
