The casino has helped tremendously with maintaining the streets

in Michigan City.

Last year.....the city received close to a million dollars from a new state

matching grant program and expects a similar amount this year.

That's in addition to a million or two every year from the casino the past

20 years or so.

Mayor Ron Meer says the casino is why streets there are not

as big of an issue.

He's happy for communities like LaPorte that the state is providing

more road funding mechanisms.......

LaPorte received an extra million dollars last year and expects the same amount

this year under the same state matching grant program.
