Casino gambling in Lake George? Forum set Tuesday
LAKE GEORGE Another upstate New York tourist town is looking into the idea of casino gambling.
Lake George Mayor Robert Blais has scheduled a public forum this evening to get a sense of where residents stand on casino gambling in Warren County.
Officials in Saratoga Springs and Essex County have already expressed an interest in a gambling casino.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has outlined a plan to boost tourism and economic development by allowing as many as three resort gambling casinos in upstate New York. The proposal would be subject to a referendum.
