Thursday morning, we'll learn who will get the license for Woodbury County's new land-based casino.
If you remember, this process started last summer and now, months later, IRGC chair Jeff Lamberti says the commission is ready to be finished.
Commissioners have sat through casino presentations, done background checks, and toured each of the four sites. Lamberti says he doubts Thursday's vote will take too long. He expects commissioners will discuss what they like and dislike about each proposal, but says the group has pretty well made up their minds. "It's been difficult for all of us, and I think there are some of the members, including myself, that didn't decide until late last week or early this week. Which is a great indication of how difficult it was," said IRGC Chair Jeff Lamberti.
Lamberti says he believes they've conducted a fair process and says commissioners put any potential bias to the side and gave all the applicants a "clean slate."
The IRGC will meet Thursday morning at 830 in the Mid-America Center.
