Morning Read: Mohawk community considers $75 million gambling upgrade

The Plattsburgh Press-Republican is reporting that the Bingo Palace and the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino could merge in a project that might also include a new, seven-story hotel complex.

[I]n an announcement of the referendum on its website, the Tribal Council states that “in order to maximize profitability at the tribe’s gaming enterprises, it is necessary to both expand the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino to include a hotel and to relocate the Mohawk Bingo Palace to the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino.”

The statement concludes by saying the Tribal Council “believes this expansion is necessary and is in the best interest of the tribal membership.”

According to Denise Raymo’s article, construction could begin as early as next month, if the project is approved in an April 30th referendum.
