Casino review board to consider Sumner proposal March 3

The state’s casino review board will hold a teleconference at 10 a.m. March 3 to review the revised contract for the Chisholm Creek Casino Resort near Mulvane.

The board will review recent amendments to the contract and ask questions of Chisholm Creek, the Kansas Lottery and consultants.

If the board votes to approve the contract, the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission would conduct background checks before giving the project its final approval.

The review board met in December to consider the contract, but Chisholm Creek asked to revise it after learning of potential competition from a tribal casino proposed for Park City.
