Raynham voters in a special town referendum Tuesday decisively approved an agreement to bring a slot machine parlor to town, making it the first community in the state vying for a slot parlor to approve its mandatory host agreement.
By a vote of 1,822 to 290, voters endorsed the agreement forged between the town and Raynham Park LLC in June, which spells out the terms under which Raynham will accept a slot parlor.
“We’re going to guarantee the town over a million dollars a year, and then our real estate tax bill will push it up to about $4 million a year,” said track operator George Carney. “Right now, with the economy the way it is, I think a lot of people realize that it will help them with their tax bills and will help the town overall.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
