BATAVIA — The operating plan, or budget, Western Regional Off-Track Betting (WROTB) Corporation will have for next year is not done. Numbers will change, officials said, but as of Wednesday, the corporation was projecting an estimated $11 million in profit, though a lot of that will be distributed among the 15 member counties and the cities of Buffalo and Rochester.
“These are not the final numbers. This is still a work in progress,” Chief Financial Officer Jacquelyne Leach said of the preliminary plan for 2023, which was presented Wednesday to the board. “The board, ultimately, will vote to approve or disapprove the recommendations of management. That really will come to fruition in the final plan (for 2023) that will be sent out … to members next week.”
