New Casino in Newton?

January 10, 2008

DES MOINES, IA TV channel 8 KCCI reported growing support for a new casino in Newton, Iowa where jobs were lost when Maytag closed last year.

KCCI further reports "the executive director of the Jasper County Economic Development Corporation, Craig Hamilton, has registered a nonprofit corporation in hopes of building a casino near the Iowa Speedway in Newton."

Mr. Hamilton said "We're envisioning something that could be in the neighborhood of 5-600 jobs, potentially; we're hoping there's going to be a hotel associated with it in time."

Local supporters for the casino will start a signature drive next week for a Jasper County ballot referendum this spring. Fifteen hundred signatures are required. If the referendum passes, the

The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission is meeting March 6th to consider removing the ban on new casinos. If the ban is lifted and the referendum passes, the path will be cleared for issuing a new casino license for Newton.
