It will be interesting to see how this all plays out, hopefully a deal can be reached.

Duluth Mayor Don Ness said the city of Duluth is considering the possibility of halting all gaming at Fond-du-Luth Casino among other options as it seeks to resolve an ongoing dispute over a profit-sharing agreement with the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.

At a press conference this morning, Ness said that under the terms of an initial 1986 contract with the band, the city has the right to prohibit bingo and other gaming at the casino if the agreement is invalidated.

He said discontinuing the casino’s operations would be a “last resort” for the city, and he expressed hope that a fresh agreement can be reached with the band instead.

Ness said Duluth also is looking at the possibility of partnering with others to bring new gambling operations into the city if the Fond du Lac Band no longer intends to share any of its profits with the city.
