Glendale close to hitting casino jackpot — 3TV
GLENDALE, Ariz. — After five years of debate and dissention, the Glendale City Council took a step toward approving a new resort casino Wednesday, rolling out a proposed agreement between the city and the Tohono O’odham Nation.
The city council will vote Tuesday on whether to approve the 17-page agreement with the Nation.
If approved, the Nation will pay the city of Glendale a total of $24 million over the course of the next 20 years: $1.4 million a year through the year 2026, and $900,000 a year after that.
The Nation also agrees to cover its own development and infrastructure costs and will pay for use of the City of Glendale’s water source.
