How did the City & Edison make the deal in the first place that obligated Edison to pay taxes and correct code violations . Did they have the means to pay at the time . Did they need to submit financials and a proposal? Did both parties do due diligence ?

This was not made clear in the Gazettee article

If my memory serves me correctly a significant amount of public money went into this business.Municipal due diligence may be in order concerning the sale.

Peter has a great record as a City Councilman and County legislator for a combined 10 years. He was one of the youngest Councilman ever elected in the City and at 47 still is very young.
Pete was a very good Chairman of the County Legislature and has the skills to get things done for the community. I'm glad Roger Hull and other City leaders are supporting him .

Seems that the Schenectadty Community College Casino gaming management program will be
needing to grow to accommodate the demand of both adult and young applicants. The
Gazette needs to do a in depth story about what the curricula will feature . . . The
Casino will probably look to the College as their main feed for employees .

What role does the Chamber of Commerce and Metroplex play in all of this?

Seems like there is a lot of details to pull together .

More good news for Schenectady. The State program START UP NEW YORK provides Companies the incentive of paying no State or local income taxes. This gives Schenectady another arrow in its sling in attracting businesses that can partner with the Community College that equip students with skills for a modern economy. They already have a gaming management program that will provide workers for the casino. Those businesses will bring more diversified jobs and economic benefits for the established business base .The City should also work with downtown real estate purchasers on keeping real estate taxes low to give business and investors further incentives to settle in Downtown Schenectady . Looks like things are looking up for Schenectady,.

The thing that will make this venture a success is the proposed 304 apartments , 70,condos, 10 Townhomes, 124 room hotel, 50 boat slips and a lot of new retail. A lot of casino employees will want to live nearby and a lot of the folks living nearby will patronize the casino that will have dining choices and shows in addition to the gambling. . A La Fitness may want to open there to give the "Y" and the former Golds gym some competition and perhaps we will also see a movie theater.

Sounds like just what the Dr. ordered for Schenectady .
