Casino Proposal in Beloit

The ordinance would also make an exception for one more facility that hasn't been built just yet in Beloit. That's a casino. Right now the city's gaming proposal is being reviewed by the Interior Department's Office in Minneapolis.

After four months of debate, two Indian tribes, Beloit and Rock county officials agreed on a proposal to build a casino west of I-90. The new agreement allows other businesses to also operate on the land.

The proposal could be sent to Washington D.C. for a final decision within just a few weeks.
