East Greenbush town board approves casino proposal

Posted June 13th, 2014 @ 6:25am by 810 & 103.1 WGY

It’s unanimous. 

The East Greenbush town council voted 5-0 to support the proposed casino on Thompson Hill Road.

A partnership of Saratoga Casino and Raceway and Churchill Downs want to build the $300 million development in an area of the town just off Route 4. 

The state Gaming Commission rejected an earlier vote by the town board that okayed a casino, but wasn’t specific about its location.
