ALLEGAN COUNTY, MICH. - The gun lake tribe's revenue sharing payment this fall is the largest in the history of the Gun Lake casino.
The tribe's chairman presented a check to the local revenue sharing boar on Thursday. In addition to revenue sharing, the tribe and casino also make donations to various causes. One donation helped the Allegan County Sheriff's Department purchase two K-9s.
""Without the support of the tribe and the casino, we wouldn't have these dogs in service. I can't thank them enough. As a result of their generosity, Allegan county is a safer place to live, work and visit, said Frank Baker with the Allegan County Sheriffs' Department.
The tribe shared more than $2.1 million dollars at the local level and nearly $5 million with the state.
This is the casino's first revenue sharing payment since it doubled in size and added 30-percent more gaming machines.
