The Illinois onebet2u Gaming Board has declared a six-month wait for the approval of suitability determinations and applications for casino licences for six months now. Mayor Rickey Williams Jr. informed the Public Works Committee that the Danville City Council of the knowledge the city could have in July was “praying and holding fingers crossed.” After the IGB approved a ruling that the Casino Owner License for Danville Developments LLC could be provisional suitability and a final licence, the town will be able to open a casino within the next nine months, Williams added.
Acceptance of additional rights
Golden Nugget was confirmed as a new casino in Danville, awaiting full regulatory approval in November, and Golden Nugget LLC entered into an arrangement with Wilmot Gaming Illinois LLC. The next meeting of the IGB will be on 9 June and 14 July. No new proposal is yet to be accepted for the Illinois casino.
In addition, in the 700 block on Madison Street, required to develop the interstices of the street Logan Avenue, Madison and Chandler and the Carle project on the riverfront, the committee suggested acceptance of additional right-of-way acquisition.
Act on next week’s purchase.
Williams said Carle is also planning a new medical campus in mid-June. The committee also addressed how abandoned lots mowing began on the east side of the community, passing Collett Street. About every month vacant lots must be mowed. The scheme for yard waste continues. The City Hall is shut down in the morning to buy waste stickers, but can be obtained by telephone or on Voorhees Street at the Public Works Centre.
