Talking Casino

The City Council’s Casino Site Committee meets tonight to discuss some key issues: should the city create a special “casino zone” that would allow casino-specific regulations? And should the entire city vote on whether to approve a casino, or just the ward where it would be sited?

The meeting, in the City Council Chambers, begins with a half hour public speak-out at 5 p.m.—where, presumably, the emerging casino opposition will voice its concerns. Channel 3’s Cherise Leclerc reports here on attorney Michael Kogut’s formation of a Citizens Against Casino Gaming committee.
