Following in the footsteps of Orleans, Wyoming and Niagara Counties, the Genesee County Legislature plans to review a resolution opposing another Seneca Nation Casino in Henrietta.
Western Regional Off-Track Betting, which owns Batavia Downs, says that kind of facility so close-by would “have an adverse effect on established gaming facilities that not only contribute money to the state education fund, but also to local agricultural economics.”
The Senecas operate three Las Vegas-style casinos in WNY. Batavia Downs is not allowed by the compact to have table games.
The legislature meeting is Wed., Feb. 5.
