Rockaway Beach Moves Towards Casino - Monday 3rd of April 2006

ROCKAWAY BEACH, Missouri – As reported by the Branson Daily News: "On Monday, the city of Rockaway Beach took a step toward building a 'mixed-use facility that would include a casino,' while preserving the resources the city already has on the lakefront.

"The Board of Aldermen approved a resolution to send letters to developers with the intent to entice them to build a facility that would include a casino in the city of just under 700 people.
