Is the former Alco site sufficiently cleaned up to break ground for this casino? I haven't read that the site heavily populated ground was ever thoroughly cleaned up. I am aware that the soil was the victim of years of Alco operating with no environmental standards. If landing the casino there results in getting that clean up project done; its another benefit for Schenectady. Also, the riverfront property is the best fit for a casino when compared to the competition. I hope the bid goes through.
