Kyle Adams is reporting in The Daily Mail the Catskill Village Board of Trustees Wed., Nov. 14, agreed to draft a letter to state, town and county officials in support of bringing a casino to Greene County. The move comes following a Nov. 5 statewide vote in favor of an amendment to the state constitution that wll allow the construction of four full-scale casinos on non-Indian land in upstate New York. In Greene County, 56 percent of voted in favor of the amendment; 43 percent voted against the proposal. The village board letter does not mean a casino would be built within the village.
