Company wants to build casino in Chicago suburb

COUNTRY CLUB HILLS (AP) – A North Las Vegas, Nev.-based company wants to build a $250 million casino in the Chicago suburb of Country Club Hills.

The SouthtownStar reports casino operator is making the announcement despite Gov. Pat Quinn’s veto of a gambling expansion bill. It’s unclear whether the Illinois Legislature will be able to override Quinn’s veto or pass a new bill.

Cannery Casino Resorts issued a statement Monday saying it wants to build near the Interstate 80 and I-57 interchange. The company says a new casino would create 1,000 full-time jobs.

Partners in the project would be Chicago funeral home owners Lafayette and Marguerite Gatling, who own the site.

A Cannery Casino Resorts majority owner, Bill Paulos, says a casino could be up and running within 18 months of being licensed.
