CHICAGO (CBS)– A possible make-or-breakto build Chicago’s first ever Casino comes on Monday.
The full City Council is scheduled to meet at 10 a.m., the plan is to recess that meeting by 1 p.m., so the Special Casino Committee can meet for a vote, and send it to the full City Council.
The first expected vote on Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s push for Bally’s to build a $1.74 billion casino in River West was called off on Friday, as aldermen continued to raise questions about the project, but the mayor is still hoping to get it approved by next week.
Lightfoot said her staff will be ready to answer questions from aldermen throughout the weekend, ahead of an expected vote on the casino plan on Monday.
However, Special Casino Committee chair Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) left the door open to possibly holding up that vote on Monday, if there are still too many unanswered questions from aldermen.
