City rolls the dice on Broome County casino

NORWICH – The Norwich Common Council is throwing support behind the likelihood of a casino being established in New York’s Southern Tier.

A resolution brought forward by Assemblyman Clifford Crouch (R-122nd District) and adopted by council members in a 4-1 roll call vote on Tuesday expresses support for the idea of a casino in neighboring Broome County. According to some city officials, benefits of a casino in neighboring district would trickle into Chenango County and provide a boost to the local economy.



“Most of the council voted in favor,” said Mayor Joseph Maiurano, noting Ward Five Alderman Paul Laughlin’s vote against the proposal. “If there is a casino built any place in Upstate New York, it would definitely benefit the city more if it were in Broome County than any of the other proposed areas.”
