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.
