POLSON - The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) are making progress on plans for a new casino along the west side of Polson just north of the airport.
The Polson City Commission unanimously approved a resolution of intent to annex 79 acres of tribal land on May 2.
The proposed project now goes to public comment with a final vote expected in June.
If approved, S&K Gaming Chief Executive Officer Bryon Miller tells MTN News that construction of the new casino could start as early as late fall.
S&K Gaming manages tribal-owned and operated businesses that include Gray Wolf Peak Casino, KwaTaqNuk Resort and Casino, S&K Polson Bay Marina, and Big Arm Marina.
