Boston, Suffolk Downs at odds on casino payments

Deal needed for plan to go to voters

Negotiators for Suffolk Downs walked out of a casino bargaining session with city officials last week, and the two sides — long considered allies in the gambling development — remain “miles apart” on how much money a casino at the East Boston track should pay to the city, according to two people with knowledge of the negotiations.

The pact is an essential part of the application process, and must be completed at least 60 days before the casino proposal can go before the voters in a legally required referendum.
