Sky Ute casino update

July 10, 2008

IGNACIO, CO - Management of the Sky Ute Casino gave an update on construction of the new resort during a meeting of the La Plata Economic Development Action Partnership this week.

General Manager Matt Olin said 200 new employees are being hired. Eventually there will be a total of 500-600 employees. Olin said a child care center will operate 24 hours a day to serve both employees and the public. He acknowledged the high gasoline prices were a major concern with bringing workers to the site, and the casino is working closely with the Southern Ute Community Action Programs' Road Runner Transit to provide more mass transit for employees.

Construction on the new resort began early last year and will to be completed later this year. The exact opening day has not been determined yet. In May construction began on the intersection on Colorado Highway 172 to the entrance of the resort. It will include Ignacio's first traffic signal.

NEW CASINO PLANS
700 slot machines
10 table games
Bingo hall
Hotel with 146 hotel rooms and eight luxury suites Bowling alley - 24 lanes Indoor pool Video arcade Banquet facilities Retail space Miniature golf Restaurants

Olin said he would like to see the resort obtain a four-star rating but the general economic slowdown may delay some of the amenities such as bell service, concierge service and valet parking. He said, "It used to be a lot of people said casinos were recession-proof. That may have been true at one time, but it's not true today."
