Penn National Gaming to pay Cherokee County $6.75M


Penn National Gaming's dispute with Cherokee County appears to be over.

After Penn National backed away from a plan to build a casino the county filed suit, accusing them of breach of contract.

Cherokee County Commissioner Richard Hilderbrand confirmed tonight that earlier this week Penn National agreed to pay the county $6.75 million.

Hilderbrand says the original deal was for $4.75 million and almost 200 acres of property. However, instead of the property, the county will receive an additional $2 million.
