City leaders in Kenosha support another 15-month extension of an intergovernmental agreement with the Menominee Indian tribe in holding out hope a casino will someday be built at the site of the now-closed Dairyland dog track.
Alderman Ray Misner spoke of frustration at how long it’s taking to get anything developed there.

Alderman David Bogdala said it’s misleading to claim there are no other options for that site as there was another developer interested in the property.
Alderman Jessie Downing also admitted there had been talks with an unnamed developer for a $200-million project. But he also said, “If we have a chance on getting a casino there god bless, let it be built there.”
The tribe’s land option will run out in 15 months. The Kenosha County Board approved the IGA extension earlier this month. The tribe’s application is now under review in Washington.
