The St. Augustine Record
St. Johns County commissioners on Tuesday will discuss a proposed ordinance calling for a referendum to determine whether slot machine gaming would be allowed in the county. The licensed pari-mutuel facility would be built on the northeast corner of Interstate 95 and State Road 207.
Also on the table, by a separate agreement, is a provision through which the county would receive 1.5 percent of that facility’s gross slot machine revenues via monthly payments.
Behind the push for the referendum is BestBet, which currently operates facilities in Jacksonville and Orange Park. Its facility on Race Track Road, called St. Johns Greyhound Park, closed in 2012.
