Casino developers given more time to sign lease, make payment

D’IBERVILLE — The developers of the proposed Oyster Bay Casino have gotten a reprieve from the D’Iberville City Council.

WLOX-TV reports that council members voted unanimously yesterday to give the Pivotal Group five days to sign a new lease agreement with the city. The group must also make a $25,000 payment.

Officials with the development company say they will sign that new lease agreement on the city owned land.

The agreement will run through the end of this year.

However, nearby property owners who have been promised their homes and land would be bought by the new casino expressed their frustration at the slow pace.

D’Iberville has been courting a casino for years. Mayor Rusty Quave said he is cautiously optimistic this casino project will finally get off the ground.
