TYRE, New York — Local officials in the Finger Lakes sound hopeful they can get a proposed $425 million casino back on track after an appeals court threw out its site plan.
Town of Tyre Supervisor Ronald McGreevy says board members are disappointed that the Appellate Division of state Supreme Court vacated the town's site plan approval for the Lago Resort & Casino. But McGreevy said there does not appear to be anything keeping the town board from correcting the "technical oversight" related to state environmental law.
Construction at the Finger Lakes site was suspended after the ruling Friday.
Lago is one of three upstate casinos recommended by a state siting board in December. Licenses are pending for all three casinos
