Cordish offers Fitchburg $5G impact fee

Nov 29, 2013 Full story: Sentinel & Enterprise 12

The Cordish Cos., which is hoping to build a slots casino in Leominster, have offered Fitchburg the same $5,000 impact fee it has negotiated with four other communities, even though the state Gaming Commission on Nov. 21 rejected Fitchburg's request to be recognized as a "surrounding community."

"Fitchburg started negotiations by asking for an upfront $3.2 million impact fee during the construction period...Fitchburg also asked for an annual $3.5 million impact fee or 1.5 percent of gross revenues, whichever is greater."

Huh? Did someone say 5 THOUSAND??? Does that mean we ain't gonna get the $6.7 million big mouth Wong was talking about every year?

Sorry but no more free stuff for you. The idea is you get off your Lay-Z boy and start laying some bricks.

Everyone understands that the Casino will bring new money to the area.

It's not a surprise that you with your 'gimme for free' attitude that you're not happy.

Why do you think the future casino owes you anything?

10 to 1 say's you will be banned from the casino in less than a month.

"Everyone understands that the Casino will bring new money to the area."

But only you fail to understand and appreciate the huge difference between a casino and a slots parlor.

I guess I just hold a different view. If my retired widowed Grandfather wants to drop a $100 on slots get free drinks, a free room, buffet and maybe a loose girl who is willing to give him lip service I say more power to him.

When you shit the bed you can't take your money with you.

I would of offered $50. bucks. Fitchburg needs to keep behind Leominsters city line. We don't want your bums, druggies, crooked cops or phoney blowhards.

5k. Lmmfao!!! The guys parking cars will make more than that in a month. Goes to show that the Cordish family flicks boogers at Shitburg like everyone else from Gov.Patrick down. All those swollen headed pompous city department dicks stole all the taxpayers money fifty times over.

Try and understand the mentality. You are dealing with a city that has an ex-con murderous homosexual rapist running for office.

A person who sucks every last dime out of us taxpayers so he and his boyfriend can play candyland all day and eat cheese doodles.

To simplify it would be like YOU going over to your neighbors house and saying ' Give me some of your money!' the response would be 'why?'.... because I'm your neighbor and I'm a good listener who works undercover for the FBI. Not going to happen.

How could this happen?

I thought Wong was super-intelligent with half a dozen degrees from Boston University.

I thought Wong was really connected with the Dems movers and shakers on Beacon Hill.

I think this is the beginning of the end for Wong.
