The head of the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority says the operator of casinos in Connecticut and Pennsylvania will file applications for New York casino licenses in time for a looming deadline.
Chief Executive Mitchell Etess told The Day that the authority will file a final application on Monday, the deadline.
The Mohegan tribal authority is involved in one of two bids to build a casino by the site of the old Concord resort in Sullivan County, New York. Empire Resorts vice president Charles Degliomini says his group's Sullivan County bid also is moving forward.
A state siting board set a June 30 deadline for applicants seeking one of up to four upstate New York casino licenses to be granted this fall under a gambling act approved last year.
