Do the City and County of Kenosha have authority in this approval process?

They do not have a direct say. However, the City and County have negotiated intergovernmental agreements with the Menominee, which spell out how the local governments would be compensated for lost property taxes and the cost of additional services incurred as a result of the casino’s operations. (If the land is held in trust, it is exempt from property taxes.) If these intergovernmental agreements are not adopted on the city and county levels, these protections for the local governments will not be assured if the casino receives federal and state approval.
