An application moved by the Treasure Cove Casino asking permission to serve alcohol to the clients in the casino itself would be supported by the City Council. Serving alcohol in the casino rather than in the restaurant or the show room would increase the number of visitors to 1,200 from just 250. Coun. Brin Skakun and Coun. Lyn Hall preferred to rescue themselves from the proceedings as casino audits are conducted by Skakun and his own son would soon be employed there. Casino owner, John Major, while moving his application highlighted the security measures that would be adopted when alcohol sales increase. He said that outdoor terrace would also be provided at the casino to avoid much noise. He emphasized on his point by saying that out of the seventeen existing casinos, thirteen facilities offer alcohol to the clients who enjoy poker tables, gaming rooms and the slots.
The application did not find the favor of Coun. Albert Koehler who said that it would enhance gambling. Coun. Murry Krause expected the people to prefer their own ideas but appealed that the casinos must be careful.
The request was approved by the Council with opposition from one member. Several members of the council received campaign contributions from Treasure Cove, with Mayor Shari Green who got $873 from the Treasure Cove Hotel and $13,440 from the casino. Green said that anyone is free to support or oppose any candidate. He reiterated that he has voted after giving due consideration to the true information available with him and he has used his right of voting in a true manner. He added that during the last campaign he was supported by Treasure Cove and Northern Steel.
