Wednesday night, Erie city council approved another 5 year Payment In Lieu Of Taxes, or PILOT deal, with St. Vincent Health Center.
They have similar agreements with a number of non-profits in the city.
Basically, St. Vincent cuts the city a check for 50% of what their taxes would be, if they paid taxes.
"As you know so many of our non-profits are located in the city of Erie. When they do this it allows the city to run efficiently and generate revenue with these non-profits that are in the city." Said Erie Councilman Bob Merski.
