The Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians will officially break ground on a new Seven Clans Casino Hotel and Restaurant in Warroad on Oct. 25. The Bemidji Pioneer reports pre-construction on the 165-acre site is already underway and full construction is expected to begin in March. The new complex will include 600 slot machines, a 100-seat restaurant and a 60-room hotel.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs is seeking comment on a plan to raze the historic Carter Hotel, the Duluth News Tribune reports. The Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa bought the property in December 2010 and wants to tear it down. The city of Duluth has suggested several ways to reuse the 83-year-old building, but the tribe claims it is "in an extraordinary state of disrepair."
Duluth claims the tribe breached its contract with the city. The News Tribune reports the band is seeking federal authority to expand its downtown gaming activities to include a former hotel without obtaining approval from the city.
In exchange, the poorest Minnesota tribe wants the right to build a Twin Cities casino. House Speaker Kurt Zellers says he doubts White Earth can come up with the money up-front.
Duluth Mayor Don Ness says he still wants to find agreement with the Fond du Lac band so both sides benefit from the tribe's downtown casino. The city received a letter from the U.S. Dept. of the Interior giving a 10-day deadline for the city to explain why the casino lease shouldn't be voided. The city and the tribe are locked in a revenue sharing legal dispute.
The House leader on stadium legislation says the idea of funding a Vikings stadium with a new Twin Cities casino is "not in play right now." A spokeswoman for Mark Dayton says the governor does not support it as a way to pay for a stadium, saying a casino would likely be tied up in court for years and is not a reliable source of money.
White Earth says it would split revenue 50-50 with the state and calls the plan "the only solution that is fair to all Minnesotans." Meanwhile, sports facilities chief Ted Mondale says a new plan to build a stadium behind the Dome in downtown Minneapolis could come within days.
