Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe working on new casino deal with city
Tuesday, September 28, 2010
The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe is reportedly working on a new casino deal with the city of Fall River, Massachusetts.
The tribe wants to use a 300-acre site in the city for a casino. The purchase price would be $21 million.
Mayor Will Flanagan supports the casino but a deal hasn't been finalized. Some new information will reportedly be presented this week.
The tribe has already amended a pending land-into-trust application to include the Fall River site.
