Do you want a Casino in your hometown?
Local elected officials will be voting very soon on Inter-Governmental Agreements (IGAs) which, if passed, would allow a casino to be built here in Kenosha County.
While the RPKC does not specifically take a position on this issue, we do believe in open and transparent government. The information surrounding this agreement has not been publicly available until now. Documents are just now being released to the public only days before votes are to be taken. Take this opportunity to reach out to your elected officials and let them know where you stand. (find your representatives here) Please check back often on this page as we will be updating it as more information is released.
