Mitchell Weighs Veto of Casino Zoning Ordinance
The City Council is playing favorites with casino developers. That’s according to Mayor Jon Mitchell, who says the council’s move to re-zone the Cannon Street Power Station clears a path for KG Urban Enterprises and their waterfront casino proposal.
Speaking on WBSM’s “Mid-Day Live”, Mitchell says it’s spot-zoning, and it’s unfair.
Mitchell says the state’s gambling laws override pre-existing zoning ordinances, making it easier for developers to build casinos.
The mayor is unsure if he will veto the council’s ordinance, and says he’s weighing his options.
