On behalf of the Iroquois and District Celebration/Festival Committee, Candace Menges submitted a written request to council for a letter supporting the groups Charity Casino Fundraiser coming up in June.
According to clerk Brenda Brunt at the April 17th council meeting, “we have to do a resolution for the province.”
In order to gain a license for the casino, the committee requires “a letter of support from our township to proceed with the license application” to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), wrote Menges.
She also pointed out that proceeds from the Charity Casino Fundraiser will go toward funding the group’s “Dundas Militia… A Call to Arms… War of 1812” celebration, which they expect to hold on September 15, 2012.
Council agreed to support the casino fundraiser.
