On Monday, November 20, 2017, Greene County Sheriff Department distributed $367,155 in monthly bingo allocations from the five licensed gaming operations in the county. The recipients of the monthly distributions from bingo gaming designated by Sheriff Benison in his Bingo Rules and Regulations include the Greene County Commission, the Greene County Sheriff’s Department, the cities of Eutaw, Forkland, Union, Boligee, the Greene County Board of Education and the Greene County Hospital (Health System).
This was the first distribution of electronic bingo funds since the Sheriff amended Section 4 of the rules to provide a payment of $25.00 per machine, per month, to the Greene County Health System. This generated a payment of $39,375 from four of the five electronic bingo establishments in Greene County. Greenetrack has not as yet paid its $25 dollar per machine assessment to the Greene County Health System.
“We are pleased to receive this $39,375 towards provision of health care at our hospital, nursing home and physicians clinic in Greene County. This will help us to cover our financial deficits incurred to offer health care to those who cannot fully pay for their care because they are poor and cannot afford adequate insurance,’ said Rosemarie Edwards one the GCHS Board of Directors.
