Discussions Set With Casino Developers

Discussions Set With Casino Developers

Mayor Rickey Williams, Jr. says face-to-face interviews will begin sometime next week with the three developers interested in bringing a casino to Danville.  The Mayor says the steering committee formed earlier to review the plans will hopefully finish its evaluations in time to make a recommendation to the City Council on September 3rd.

‘’We are still on track to meet the state’s deadline,’’ said Williams.  ‘’I am thrilled that we have quality options as it puts us in a better position to get the best deal possible for our citizens,’’ added the Mayor in comments to VermilionCountyFirst.com News.

The City is facing an October 28th deadline to submit its casino plans to the State.  On Wednesday the Mayor announced that a third developer had made the deadline to be considered for the casino.
