According to the Finger Lakes Times, the board is worried a Rochester casino would draw business away from del Lago Resort & Casino in Tyre.

The Times says Town of Varick Supervisor Bob Hayssen called on the county to do everything it can to oppose the compact at a June 13 meeting.

He called it “dirty” and “highly corrupt.”
