For those of you who have been following this story, it isn’t news that the City of Albany is one of several possibilities for the siting of a new casino. We have gathered information from several different sources (thanks go out to Richard Conti, 6th Ward Council Member, Cathy Fahey, 7th Ward Council Member, and Noelle Kinsch, Albany County Legislator, for so quickly sharing the information). The resolution in support of a casino in Albany is scheduled to be voted on at the May 5th Council meeting.
We will update this post as information comes in.
