The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community of Michigan is weighing casino development options.

One option is an off-reservation casino. But some are wary because Gov. Rick Snyder (R) rejected a proposal to move the existing Ojibwa Casino Marquette to a location that's closer to tribal headquarters.

Another option is updating the existing casino in Baraga. The building is aging and suffered a water line break last week, Treasurer Eddy Edwards said at a council meeting.

A third option, favored by Edwards, would be to relocate the casino to the waterfront. The plan requires the purchase of the Baraga Lakeside Inn.

"We can sit and wait for the next governor or we can try again," Edwards said at the council meeting, The Daily Mining Gazette reported. "[W]e can do more studies, waiting and waiting and waiting, or we can just do this," he added, the paper said.

The council voted to look into the relocation but also asked for an update on other casino options, the paper reported.
