Orange County Casino Developers Hold Public Session
As developers of a new casino in Orange County plan to break ground next week, state and federal agencies held a session in Paoli Wednesday to foster related economic development efforts.
Representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Indiana Rural Development Council fielded questions from local residents on economic development opportunities that may spin off of the casino development.
State Representative Jerry Denbo (D-French Lick) say more than 100 area residents showed up to find out what sort of assistance is available. Denbo says people interested in learning more about development assistance can contact the USDA office in Indianapolis or the State Rural Development Council.
