Slow business at casino hurts Snoqualmie
SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) – The new Snoqualmie Casino hasn’t turned out to be the jackpot the tribe expected.
Almost a year after it opened, the casino’s only bringing in one-quarter of the $1 million a month the Snoqualmies were counting on. That’s posing big budget problems.
A memo written by a grant and contract administration consultant for the tribe was obtained by The Seattle Times. It says a “combination of cutbacks and loan funding is imperative to avoid financial collapse.”
