A source familiar with the negotiations said Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Mohegan Sun have reached a deal in which the casino developer will pay the city of Boston to offset the effects of its Revere Casino at Suffolk Downs. The deal, however, will not allow residents of East Boston to vote on the project.

Details of the deal were still being worked out last night, but the person said Monday evening that the two sides had reached an agreement in principle, with the essential outline in place. How much the casino company would pay the city, however, was still in flux and unavailable. In accepting the casino company’s offer, Walsh would give up on his insistence that East Boston should vote on the project as a “host community” under the 2011 casino law.
