Boyd Officials React to Limerick Decision - Sunday 30th of April 2006

LIMERICK, Pennsylvania – As reported by the Mercury: "Officials from Boyd Gaming Corp. say they are disappointed by Tuesday's news that the Limerick supervisors do not want a casino within their township's borders.

"In an interview with The Mercury, three of the supervisors said they did not feel Boyd's proposal for a slots parlor off the Sanatoga exit of Route 422 was the right move for the community.

"Rob Stillwell, a spokesman for Boyd, said the company has made every effort to cooperate with township officials and provide information.

"…With the casino proposal, Boyd is promising about 1,500 jobs as well as a share of its revenues up to $10 million a year to Limerick Township. In an effort to make their intentions transparent, Boyd launched a Web site in March. There, visitors have been able to learn about the proposed project and read news and reviews about the company and its track record.

"In addition, Boyd officials had scheduled a public forum for interested members of the community which it later canceled, wanting its engineers to thoroughly hammer out what many felt to be the No. 1 concern traffic.

"…Citing their reasons for opposing the casino, the supervisors said they felt Boyd had not adequately addressed traffic.

"…'We thought we had a working relationship with the local government,' Stillwell said…"
