Auburn Mayor Timothy Lattimore Welcomes Indian Casino

On May 24, 2007, Timothy Lattimore, the Mayor of Auburn, commented that he is in favor of the Cayuga Indian Tribe's plans to build a casino in their city.

A state official said that a location in Central New York is possible. The state officials are reacting to the news that the Cayuga Indian Nation has settled a deal on their federal land case.

The Cayuga Indian Nation was permitted to build a Las Vegas style casino facility in Catskill in exchange for dropping the case.

As part of the settlement, the Cayuga Tribe is also required to pay the state $120 million annually from their casino profits and both the Cayuga and the Seneca Counties will earn a total of $15.3 million annually from gambling profits.

The Cayuga Tribe would also minimize the amount of land that they would remove to a total of 10,000 acres in the Cayuga and Seneca Counties.

The agreement between the 2 sides also says that the state legislature must stop the Seneca Cayuga Tribe from Oklahoma, which has also kept a gambling casino in New York from getting a land settlement deal from the Empire State Officials.
