ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s slot machine commission has approved some changes in plans for developing a casino in Baltimore and one in western Maryland.

The panel voted to allow up to $6 million in reimbursements to the Baltimore casino developer over three years for infrastructure improvements made by the developer near the casino. The panel also voted to change a requirement for a casino developer at Rocky Gap State Park to lower the developer’s estimated expense for wastewater treatment requirements from about $4 million to $1.8 million. Bids on the two sites are due Sept. 23.

The panel also clarified that minority business requirement goals at the two facilities will be based on the actual work proposed and the availability of firms to perform the work.

    I would be suprised if there were any serious bidders, for either venue, for martin O’money and the city of baltimore , in their greed, has made this venue a non viable proposition!!!!!! my advice— never milk a cow in a thunderstorm or you will get left holding the bag!!!!!

    As I stated in an earlier comment, a Canadian group placed a bid on the Baltimore City license, but was rejected because the group was all white. The group was the SOLE bidder. Now they are suing the city. You can see the article on this site dated 7/06/11.
