A public hearing will be held in September to give the community a chance to comment and ask questions about Tioga Downs plans for development of a casino resort at its current racino in the Town of Nichols.

Tioga Downs Director of Business Development, Jay Dinga, updated members of the Binghamton Rotary Club on the progress of the proposal.

The former New York State Assemblyman says a public presentation of the application is to take place September 10 in New York City.

The public hearing locally is scheduled for September 18 at SUNY Broome Community College.

No firm deadline has been set for the New York State Gaming Commission to come to a decision on a fourth casino license, but Dinga says the Location Board has indicated that word could come in fall or early winter.
