The Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma has paid over $17,000 in town and county taxes the tribe owes on the three parcels it owns in Aurelius at the intersection of Route 90 and Route 5 and 20, Aurelius Town Clerk Debbie Pinckney said.

The tribe paid $9,558.20, $5,475.44 and $2,395.50 respectively for each parcel. The tribe also paid $14,687.84 it owed in school taxes in October, Pinckney said.

In August, the tribe paid the roughly $70,000 in back taxes owed on the parcels it once slated for a major casino.

The tribe also owns a parcel in the town of Montezuma.

Thank you for being good neighbors....
