Created: 06/13/2014 11:38 AM WHEC.com

The Town of Tyre announced it's on board with Seneca County in urging the state to give Wilmot Casino and Resort a license.

Thursday night, the Town Board came to a unanimous decision to support the casino. The New York State Gaming Commission has yet to award it a license in the Finger Lakes-Southern Tier region. The board also approved a site plan for the development.

Wilmorite is company planning to build the casino. The company's chair, Thomas Wilmot, said he's very grateful for the town's support -and the company looks forward to submitting their application for a license later this month.
