Gates, NY--Building a casino in the Town of Gates isn't a gamble, according to its supervisor, Mark Assini.
"Certainly, it could have a positive impact on the tax base here in the Town of Gates," Assini said.
Assini submitted a formal proposal to the Seneca Nation of Indians to build a casino at the Rochester Tech Park.
Assini said the 300 acre space can hold a casino slightly larger than the Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls.
"They are very interested and I'm simply saying why not gates?"
The idea came after a survey was conducted that found residents in the area thought the town was a good location.
"I've talked to numbers of residents if not thousands and it's been very positive and support for that location for this proposal," Assini added.
