Mohegan Sun inks casino pact with Palmer

Under a new casino agreement announced Thursday, Mohegan Sun would become not only the biggest taxpayer in Palmer but would pay more to the town than all other taxpayers combined.

As part of the deal, Mohegan Sun has agreed to give the town $2.94 million upfront and then annual payments of about $16 million, a sum larger than the town’s current local tax levy of about $15.5 million, according to town budget figures.
