The preparations have begun in order to reopen the Chukchansi Casino and Resort just in time for New Years Eve.
This Indian casino as has its doors closed for more than a year. They have been closed due to a dispute over the actual leadership of it. The signs that are welcoming patrons back are being placed outside while at the same time inside cleaning crews are doing their best to get everything ready for the reopening.
The man in charge states that the Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino will be back on track and better than it has ever been. The slogan is “it’s a new day for the Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino, and it is a new year so it is an exciting time to be here.
The main objective is to have a soft opening on New Tears Eve, the gaming machines are set to go and the hotel will be open, but not all of the restaurants within the resort will be open. A full Grand opening is planned for January 15, 2016.
This news is great for more than 1,000 employees who were put out of work, everyone is full of hugs as well as excitement to be back at work and see everyone again.
Legal issues with the Federal Government in the past have been worked through, many but not all of the conflicts that remain within the Chukchansi tribe themselves have been settled.
Yet, the new tribal chairperson believes that issues have been stabilized enough in order for them to move forward. He states that there are always going to be those who are not happy, but on a positive note that he looks forward to a brighter future for all involved.
The agreement that was made with the Madera County means that a sheriff’s deputy will be stationed at the casino hotel and resort round the clock.
