A group opposing the proposed casino in the town of Tyre plans to let Onondaga County know that endorsing the proposal is a bad idea.
Developer Wilmorite has proposed building a casino just off the Thruway in Tyre, but Casino Free Tyre is working to stop it. Wilmorite will ask the Onondaga County legislature to endorse their proposal today, and the Casino Free group will demonstrate in front of the county courthouse in opposition. Organizer Desiree Dawley says Wilmorite doesn't have the support of the community and is looking everywhere they can to get it to make their proposal more attractive to the state. Dawley says voters in Onondaga County opposed the statewide vote for the casino plan, just as voters did in the town of Tyre.
