BOSTON (CBS) —- Finally, there are some hard numbers are on the table for the proposed casino at Suffolk Downs, and they certainly are tantalizing:
* More than $33 million upfront for East Boston, and $20 million more each year to reimburse the community for services;
* $45 million in transportation and infrastructure improvements;
* At least $32 million a year for the city overall, much more if the casino’s profits are higher than expected;
* And 2,500 construction jobs along with 4,000 permanent jobs.
