Kenosha County Board to Consider Casino IGA Tuesday Night

Kenosha, WI (WLIP)–The Kenosha County Board will meet as a Committee of the Whole Tuesday evening to consider the Intergovernmental Agreement with the Menominee Tribe and Hard Rock for a Kenosha casino.

The IGA is similar to the one the Kenosha Common Council considered last week in a similar meeting.

Kenosha County would get one percent of the net win each year during the first decade of the agreement.

A minimum payment of $50,000 would be due in years one and two which increases to $500,000 in years three through eight.

A minimum yearly payment of 1 million dollars would be due starting in year nine.

After tonight it will be considered by two committees before coming back before the full Kenosha County Board for a final vote.

Approval would also need to come from the city, the federal department of the Interior, and the governor of the state of Wisconsin.
