Binghamton City Council Considering Casino Resolution


The Press & Sun-Bulletin reports Mayor Richard David requested a special council meeting to vote on the resolution after an unnamed bidding group indicated it was prepared to move forward with a casino proposal.

Applications for a Southern Tier casino license are due July 6. State regulators require that applicants show support from the local municipality in the form of a resolution.

Tioga Downs owner Jeff Gural is currently the only person who has publicly announced interest in seeking a license.

Councilman Chris Papastrat says a successful casino would provide much needed tax dollars and jobs to the city.

The resolution would support a casino at the Stow Manufacturing site.
